Last night hubby went out to a meeting of his fellow radio controlled plane enthusiasts and someone devised a rather fiendish quiz. Whilst it wasn't a particularly high scoring quiz they all seemed to enjoy the challenge, and are all making vows to read up on the topics for next year!.
This morning we had a rather sluggish start, rather unsurprisingly, before heading off to meet a good friend who was celebrating his birthday today. We met at an Italian restaurant which was convenient to all of us and we had a very pleasant celebratory lunch, over a couple of hours. The pizza was rather lush and I am also assured that the steaks were too. The pecan cheesecake was DIVINE!! and the waiter took this photo of all of us! THANK YOU
I am deeply envious of everyone who obtained tickets to attend workshops where Sir Tim (in hushed reverential tones) will be presenting a workshop at the end of February 2011 - please put your tickets somewhere that I won't find them!!!!!
All this has meant that I haven't had much time to craft and I didn't get much chance yesterday either - which is leaving me feeling craft starved so I just might have to sit in front of the TV this evening and colour a few images so I can get cracking tomorrow. In the interim I did have this image which I coloured last evening and made in to a Christmas card this morning - hope you like it. The image was part of an image swap so I'm not 100% sure of its origin. I coloured the image using ivory pro marker, aged mahogany distress ink, holographic stickles and, around the edges, shmmer chalk. On the panel I distressed the edge using a Tim Holtz distressing tool and then D.I.'s in Tea Dye, Vintage Photo and Black Soot and then tied a piece of dark green organza ribbon to complete the card.
I hope you are all enjoying a perfectly splendid Tuesday and were not kept awake by the weather last nigh!
