Well, here it is at last ... my September calendar page. Didn't want you to think I was getting behind or anything like that. tut tut. As if. If you click for a closer look (and I know some of you double clickers do!) you will see I have had a fairly rubbish month, so the fact that my calendar is done at all is something of a miracle!
Thanks and well done to everyone who has already linked up with their calendar this month. Some of you are just soooo organised! I have been to visit most of you and as usual I'm staggered by the wonderful inspirational art that is going on. We're almost there (unless you are going to continue next year of course!). Don't forget, if you haven't yet linked up with your calendar you can do so here, but don't panic, the link will stay open all month.
So, back to my calendar ... I used some of the new Dylusions ink spray colours to create the background, they are gorgeous! I also used some of the new background stamps, and the new vine stamp to create a border along the lower edge. Have a closer look here:
And then, while I was messing about with inks in my craft room, I decided to ink up a tag (Jade and Sunshine) .............

Before I go, I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your get well wishes :-)
And today, I'm going to leave you with this. The lovely Sunanda sent me these words following my last blog post, and I'm sure a lot of you out there will appreciate them too:
Happiness is a state of being created while working towards the goal,
not a feeling to be experienced after achieving the goal.
If we believe that happiness comes after achieving then we create
stress, anger and fear while achieving, and do not thus experience happiness.
Before I take responsibility for those around me,
I need to take responsibility of my own thinking and feelings.
When I am happy and take care of others, then they will be happy
Byee for now, I'm off to get inky.
