BF non-retreats photo prompts

As part of the non-retreaters mini crop on Bubbly Funk forum, over the last two days Joanne has been giving us photo prompts:

1. Stamp - a collection by Tim Holtz:

2. Texture - in the kitchen:

3. Aperture:

4. Yellow - some yellow in my garden:

including one that shouldn't be there:

5. Energy - and I'm so glad that Joanne gave us this prompt, because the bulb in our bathroom had gone and I needed to put a new one in before it got dark:

6. Division - the wire fence that divides our back garden from our neighbour's:

7. Handmade - a tablecloth that I embroidered when I was about 7 (excuse the creases, but there was no way I was going to get the iron out):

8. Open - my printer/scanner with the menu panel open ready for use:

9. Mix - it's very obvious, but this was all my brain could cope with:

10. End - a soppy end of a story (a Jill Mansell book that I bought and still haven't read - at least I know now what the ending is!):

Thanks, Joanne, for organising this - I used to regularly take photos, but sometimes get out of the habit - good to be prompted into taking photos of things that we wouldn't normally think of.

Shabby postage

This is a quick card using some postcard background paper that I've had for ages and never used. The stamp is 'timeless memories', one of my favourites that I had given to me for Christmas. It was stamped on to a piece of the inside of an old envelope, torn and edged and sponged with brushed corduroy distress ink. A bit of distressing also around the edges of the card and across the sentiment and the card was done.

It's for:

Die cut dreams 47: shabby chic
Quirky crafts 27: 'postal theme'
Incy wincy 41: colour challenge photo inspiration - brown, green, cream
The crafty pad 71: 'tear it up'

ABC: 'U is for unused stash' - the background paper has been in my box for a few years

Gingersnap GC53 chestnut theme: 'read'
