Show us your stuff & shopping our stash

Show us your stuff this month has a sketch

I've started with an old photo featuring my 2 best friends, plus myself.It was taken at the southern most tip of NZ in 1979.
This set me off using numbers and letters based on the signs.
I misted using gold, through a clock mask.
I've also dribbled yellow Kaiser mist.
Some of the papers and layers involve words and numbers.
The reason is we are all teachers. Barbara is High School Maths and Ann and I taught primary.
Both of them have been a best friend for over 40 years.

I hand made the pleated flower bottom left.

And at Shopping our stash they want lots of blue, so I whipped up this card for a man's birthday.
I love the Basic Grey Bow tie paper I used.
