Playtime with my new spring distress inks

 Now these were pure luxury of course I didn't need them but I did want them really bad lol.
 They are the most lush colours I have seen for a long time - all three work well but I particularly love the peacock feathers and the squeezed lemonade - the lemonade is the most gorgeous shade of yellow I have ever seen.
 stamps are from Tim Holtz and Kaisercraft
with the script background and elegant weeds from Hero arts.
Love the gorgeous colours. If you hadn't noticed I love them a lot!
Yesterday I came over all ready for spring but instead of cleaning (I rarely get the urge to clean!)  I did feel the need to be prepared so I reinked my distress inks LOL. 
I also bought the papermania mag for May/ June which has the fabulous portobello road papers.  Perfect for my Jubilee projects!
Am off to Bangor today in this wild and wet weather delivering Tom to his new digs and his new job at The University.  I'm so thrilled for him and hope this new chapter of his life proves enriching for him.
Have fun folks and thanks for stopping by x
