Dog In Car

Hi,
Gee it's hot here today and i've managed to snap the belt on my hoover, so until my OH fixes it, no domestic duties for me - yipee !!! Yesterday i took son for his first lesson in golf !!, yes they do them for 4 year olds and he absolutely loved it and wants to do it again, but next time with Daddy, so that lets me off the hook taking him again !!, we also went to see 'Cars 2' which was alright, but i personally wasn't keen on wearing the 3D glasses !!

The image i've used today is in a set 'Hello Friend' which i chose when i won the Flicker / Penny Black challenge and thought it was about time i used it, plus it makes a great 'Monochrome' card, as there are a couple of those around at the moment. The papers i've used are so old they are a set of 'Papermania' ones and the car one, goodness knows where i picked that up from.

What a great stamp - love it & your card. Hope you weren't naughty and snapped that belt yourself...there's always a brush & dust pan!!! On 2nd thoughts cards is a much better option. Jx

This is just such a super card Sam!!

Sorry that it's taken me a while to visit but the answer to the question you asked me is I tend to use Stamp 'n' Stuff's Crystal embossing powder. It is widely available but if you have any problems I know that The Stamp Man stock it. Hope this helps! xx
