Wonky Tonks first play

Hello all - how are you? Its been a busy day here - 4 and 1/2 hours setting up at the fair, doing the teas and then helping clear up .... followed by a rush to take the girls to jujitsu and then back to the village for a vintage fair - I was helping put on a stall - but that wasn't a hardship as there wasn't a lot of business! I'm ready for my bed tonight and looking forward to seeing my dad tomorrow - its fathers day and I suspect this may be the last time I can celebrate with my dad. Although I use the term celebrate very loosely. He seems to be continuing his decline. He now has a hospital bed at home and carers coming in four times a day. Hospice at home are also visiting regularly. Its all a help to my mum who has a lot to deal with. Such a sad and fast decline. I hope he has a good day.

Last weekend when I was away at Teeside I managed to have a quick play with three of the lovely new Wonky Tonk stamp sets from Tracy Easson - here's my makes:

A trio of CAS cards

wonky tonk Francesca

Wonky tonk Sophia

Wonky Tonk Georgina

Here's a close up of Georgina - I have added the writing on this.

All colouring was done using spectrum aqua markers. 

I am so very pleased that these beautiful girls have been made into stamps - well done Tracy!!!

Have a great evening and a wonderful day tomorrow!!

Big hugs

Rachel xx
