So what has Timmy inspired me to do?

First let me explain Timmy is an affectionate not derogatory term - My hubby is called Tim and is known as Timmy when we are having a bit of a laugh together. I would like to think would have a bit of a laugh with Mr Holtz should I ever get to craft with him and hey I'm doing that everyday for the next 2 weeks!
This was one of yesterday lessons which I have wanted to do for ages now.
Reflections stamps and embossing folders. Now the only ones I had suitable were the atc size ones so that's what I played with. The only reflections stamps I had were seasonal ones (Christmas card ladies this will be on the list now!!!) which thankfully had this fab music stamp in it.
A trusty blending tool and distress inks and here it is!
I made it into a card for some fab dinky envelopes I bought at the show and thought
Why not stamp and ink the envelope too? I am back in love with my blending tool after being so lost for inspiration I just cant wait to play!
Here they are together - this will be plopping through someone's door very soon - wonder who that will be???
Messy, inky fun there is nothing quite like it!!!
Hope you are having crafty fun this week too!
