a fox is a wolf who sends flowers - ruth brown

I have fallen behind in my blog posts.  I suppose there are too many exciting things going on in the everythingshetouches world; unfortunately not all related to crafting.  I recently returned to a previous sector at work after a six month secondment.  There is something really fantastic about being able to temporarily move to a new position: stretch some muscles that have not been used in a long while, meet new people and learn something new-to-you all while having that security blanket of knowing you have somewhere comfortable to return to when it is all over.

I have also started working on two retirement memory books for my colleagues who will be leaving the end of June and middle of July.   I am very grateful for the support and ideas that I have been receiving and I cannot wait to share the end product with you.

And now onto April's Inked Stamper 10-tag swap challenge which was quirky. 

I found the fox stamp at Michaels in the $1.50 bin, added Impression Obsession glasses (cut from black glossy paper) and highlighted the ears and cheeks with watercolour (distress ink tea dye).  Alex and I have been listening to What Does the Fox Say quite a bit lately and it just seemed to fit nicely with April's theme.  I used the fox head as a mask with this fantastic Asian lady themed paper.

The dress form was decorated with a belt mustache and Asian-inspired embellishment.  Seriously cannot have quirky without a stache or two.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting.
