2nd guest spot for Tuesday Taggers

Good morning everyone.....hope everyone is well today, it's a nice bright sunny morning here in Dundee but it's quite frosty outside....i would love to be sat in today crafting but i have to go and see to my mother in law who i had to take to hospital yesterday she got her thumb caught in her front door it was really horrible so she can't do much for herself and her neighbour who usually looks after her is away for a week and i also have to take my son to the doctor about his eczema he has it really bad at the minute it's a poor we shame he is so itchy so it will be another day running about for me....anyway back to my project...this is my second week guest designing for Tuesday Taggers and this weeks theme is Getting Messy hands....well this took me right out my comfort zone as i don't usually use much ink other than stamping an image on to card so my darling mum sent me through a few Tim Holtz ink's to play with i spent all day Sunday playing with these and just couldn't get anything right i had to phone my mum and ask her how to use them lol then she must have had about 5 emails from me moaning lol...but i had fun........here is what i come up with......this is my messy hands.... This is a bookmark i tried to make on grunge board (i think it is called) i tried to print an image on it but it didn't quite work out......
So then i made this....this card is for my dad's birthday from the kids....his birthday is today so i'm keeping my fingers crossed he gets it in the post today....i used my new Daisy and Dandelion stamp also my Daisy and Dandelion papers that i bought last week and i destressed all the edges of the card........

Have a nice day everyone.....thanks for having a look at my project...love and hugs Nikki xxxxx
