I really cant believe I haven't joined you all since December!
We did fly to England in the middle of December to have a family get together before Xmas, Christmas in London, away for New Year and then nearly three weeks of sniffing and coughing.
As I´ve finally made it this week I thought I would post a photo of my stash from a couple of weeks ago instead of my messy room.

I´ve been quite taken with my Gelli plate, not with great success I have to say but I´m determined to keep trying.
I ordered a few more Acrylic paints and stencils along with my favourite thing of the moment, embossing paste, I love it.
The tyre tread stencil I used on our sons 40th card, after paying 10 euros postage, well it was to San Francisco and quite big, even the postman didn't believe it was only a card and made me sign a customs form!
Of course I´ve vowed once again to think small to save postage charges but as I said to Steve, it is a big birthday, the baby of the family being 40.
The little pots are Treasure Gold gilding wax, I saw an amazing card in a mag using it, of course mine didn't look anything like it and I ended up with more on my fingers than the card, I  did colour some embossed silver letters with the Indigo and it looked quite effective.
Well that´s all I´ve been up to so I´ll pop along to see what everyone else has been doing, have a lovely Wednesday and thanks for your visit.
