Make do and mend....

Hi Guys...now you know I was moaning last week about not being able to buy more stash due to lack of funds..well this morning I was having a hop around my fav blogs to see what you all been up to and the amazing Kath...(I covet her blog as she is a total inspiration) has come up with a brilliant idea....well its brilliant to me anyway...making you own stash..ie DP's with just a bit a plain white cardstock and your trusty Copics...or whatever...she inspired me so much that I had to have a go...here my effort...(its the paper you're looking at...lol..)


I love plaid paper so I thought I would use that as an idea to keep it simple and used a ruler to keep the lines straght...do wipe the ruler between colours..and hey presto...Pattened paper...Do go and check out Kaths blog she make amazing cards...
Well thats my 'Blue Peter' bit for today...lol
Hugs
