Bread and Games....

Yesterday I enjoyed a nice stay-at-home day. Made some plans for moving the furniture in my living room, but need to file them a bit before I put it into action.... Got some shopping, collected my lotto prize money - don't get excited, it was just under 15€, so no big celebrations yet! and baked some sun-flower seed bread, which smelled so nice that two of my kitchen cows arrived for a sniff straightaway. And spent the rest of the day eating bread and playing with inks and paper again. Once again, a lot landed in the bin, which isn't that bad, because I hope to learn from my mistakes. But 4 pictures were OK. They have been stamped with resist ink, distressed, and then stamped, using 2 little stamps from *Crea-motion*, a Dutch firm, and one from TH. They have been embossed and brushed with perfet pearls, and the clock has got a game pointer, also from TH. I mounted them on some black leather-look card and then some dark-pink metallic paper. Thanks for looking!
