Living in the gentle countryside of north Buckinghamshire, I'm often inspired by the changing seasons. At the moment summer is giving way to autumn and it's prompted me to bring out my tree stamps. I started by stamping the row of trees from Lovely as a Tree and roughly sponging in the sky and the foreground. Next came the Serene Silhouettes tree, stamped twice, in Gumball Green. I sponged more ink over the foreground and disguised the joins with markers before adding texture over the top using the top of the oak tree stamp.
The sentiment is from So Sorry. I love the high-impact font of the words 'So sorry' in this set and there's a choice of different phrases to add to it - including 'for the loss of your beloved pet' and 'this is late'.

My daughter, who has definitely been struck down by the lurgy, came downstairs yesterday morning looking heavy-eyed. "Bub," she said. "I dode think I can eat eddy breakfast this bording!" Whenever my children tell me they can't do something I immediately say: "Course you can Malcolm! Just stick this up your nose and you'll be fine!" because of the Vicks Sinex adverts of the 70s. I'm only joking I hasten to add, and wouldn't personally recommend that anyone sticks anything up their nose, but it does cheer the children up and that's the main thing!
Here's one of the old ads in case you fancy a trip down memory lane.
See you tomorrow,
