I was pleased with the 3D look I achieved with the rattles. I first tapped them into Marina Mist ink and then added shading on one side of the rubber with a Night of Navy marker. After stamping, I drew in a shadow with my Sahara Sand marker to give them extra depth.
The sentiments from Easy Events are so useful and I love the font style. And have you spotted that ornate border? I punched a strip of Bashful Blue card stock using the Lace Ribbon border punch and tucked it under the main panel. I love the tone-on-tone look of teaming it with a Bashful Blue card base.

I hope you had a good weekend. We had an extremely busy one with chores and also my youngest son's Christmas fair at school to help out with. I was on an extremely busy stall selling novelties such as lip glosses masquerading as cakes and weirdly-shaped stationery items. At one stage a small boy picked up a bright pink plastic toilet and looked up into my face. "What's this?" he asked. "It's a toilet," I told him firmly. He was not to be easily fobbed off. "What does it do?" he asked, his eyes fixed onto mine. "Let's read the label shall we?" I said brightly. "It says here that it makes rude noises..." He stared at me disapprovingly. "You use it to entertain your friends," I added. The child put the toilet back in the box and took his leave, casting me a look of deep disgust - as if the whole thing had been my idea!
Thank you for joining me today. I shall be back tomorrow with something a little Christmassy so do come and have a look if you have a minute.
