Setting a precedent!!

Hello everyone, well I think I'm setting myself a record by posting 4 days running! But while I was creating the last card I came across another stamp that I wanted to use for the LIM challenge, come and see;


This lovely hibiscus stamp is from a very old SeeDee set called tropical that I came across last night. Karen bought me 9 sets years ago and the happy birthday set is one I go to regularly and I hadn't looked at this set for ages but realised it had a grunge type stamp in it, result!! and a lovely sentiment font. I stamped using grey versafine and used Su inks on an acrylic block and added them with a water brush.
Off to relax again in the garden, strange how having been retired for 4 years I still enjoy the weekends:)

Ooh just found out my last tag with the mermaid on is in the hall of fame over at the Q&Lchallenge:)

Steady on - you will be blogging daily soon!! Love this image and the way you've combined it with the 'grunge'. Oddly enough I looked out my See-D stamps this morning and found this set (unopened)!! Also a complete set of Christmas ones and some others would you believe .Most of these had been used at some time I think.
