Live Life on the edge.................

Hi everyone
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, sadly not much of it left now.  I thought I would get a quick post in whilst I'm cooking a sunday roast, roast chicken to be exact, there are wonderful aroma's drifting into where I am.
Anyway, you know when you meet someone and you just bond straight away? I have made one such connection with the lovely & talented Donna. We have met through blogland and I only wish we lived closer because I just know that we would get onlike a house on fire in real life as much as in blog life, so much so I am sure we will meet one day. Well Donna, and if you want to check out her fabulous work you can Here, makes her own stamps and fabulous they are. For my birthday, along with a fabulous stampotique card, Donna sent me some stamped little houses using one of her own hand carved stamps and has challenged me to use them on one of my projects.
Well Donna mission accomplished having prodded and poked my mojo into life. I do hope that Donna likes how I have used her stamped images.
Background has been made by blowing Dylusions sprays around on mixed media cardstock.
Then I have partially stamped the XXL stamp by Carabelle Studio - Texture Chevron & Quadrillage.
I have then added Donna's little houses leaning over the edge of the main chevron of this stamp.
I then typed "Live life on the edge" on my newly acquired old type writer, which I love now I've managed to sort the ribbon out for it.
Right I am away now to peel some veg
Thanks for visiting and see you soon
