Morning Peeps, it's Saturday and time for a new challenge at Allsorts, our host this week is Tracy who would like to see "Masculine' cards suitable for men and boys.
Our sponsor is Chocolate Baroque who will be showcasing some exciting new stamps on Hochanda TV on Tuesday 4th August at 10am and 3pm. Lesley will also be on our screens on Sunday 16th August with a new Craftalong, the kit for that show is available to purchase with a £5 discount from Hochanda here.
This is one of my samples from the July shows on Hochanda which showcased a new collection of Native American stamps. A tri-fold card with an Oxide and stencilled background and various elements from Catching Dreams, Do Right Always and Hold On as well as the Beautiful Russian Princess Katya stamped without her headdress and an Indian bandana added so she has becomes Haiwatha. She evokes memories of the very old and tatty book Hiawatha which captivated me as a child, contrary to what many believe she was in fact female but you have to go back almost 100 years before Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote his poem about Chief Hiawatha and his fictional wife Minihaha.
Can I thank you for so many kind messages over the last three weeks whilst I was poorly. It's many years, if ever, that I was confined to bed for over a week totally drained of strength. A raging temperature (negative COVID test done as a precaution although I had no other symptoms) and a migraine which did't let up for over a fortnight. Lots of test were inconclusive and it's one of those that will in all probability be put down to the medics favourite word when they don't have a clue "a virus". Pleased to say I am now feeling much stronger and venturing back into blogland.
