I also do a bit of demo work for stix2 anything and I love it. I've recently retrained after being made redundant to become a Teaching Assistant which is a very rewarding job.

Good Morning, 
Today the weather is so miserable, dull and plenty of rain. Mondays are my day off from my paid job, and I always play badminton with friends and my other half. And today was no exception I had a serious workout !! Have also managed to get loads of housework done so I can craft later !!! Well todays card is made using my favourite kanban stamp a lighthouse. Teamed together with some docrafts papers and coloured with distress inks and a waterbrush. I used an 8 x 8 card blank added a bit of twine and some card candy. Hope you like it. Thanks for looking, hope you all have a lovely day. I will be back in the morning with my DT piece as a new challenge is starting over at fat tastic tuesday xx
  Take care
