hello - Tuesday again
Hi there readers,
Funny old morning, you know autumn's approaching when you wake up to .......... fog!! YIKES, where DID I put those new (and purple) gloves?
Bit of a busy day yesterday, busy doing next to nothing that is!!! Had a weird weekend and simply couldn't settle to much yesterday. I did, however, get round to using a number of the toppers I made at craft club last Wednesday . . . . AND I made the text themed challenge so it wasn't a day totally wasted. Oh yes, and I did wrap my pal's birthday gift of a poncho - I soooo hope she's going to like it. I certainly did, because I bought myself one at the same time but I discovered a bit of a design flaw . . . if you wear it in the car then the fringe gets caught in the seat belt catch! Ooops - it'll be OK for my friend though, she doesn't drive!!!
I also watched a movie I recorded recently, called NYC Tornado - strange kind of film but very compulsive, didn't even want to hit pause to go make a cuppa!
Anybody watch SPOOKS last night too? Cracking start to the series and nice to see the splendid eye candy in the shape of Richard Armitage still in it. I had been watching the Doctor Who episode "Girl in the Fireplace" with Sophia Myles (splendid episode, one of my faves) and guess what? She's in SPOOKS too - Spooky!
Anyway, back to the crafting in hand . . . . here are the cards I made yesterday afternoon and evening - hope you like them. I was really pleased with the toppers made at craft club last week and they've proved to be quite versatile - maybe I shall "run up" some more to have ready ....... just in case! All you need is some white card, post its (for masking shapes), distress inks in colour families, black ink and silhouette stamps. I seem to be "at one" with the orangey colours at the moment (Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and either Aged Mahogany or Fired Brick) but I am so very pleased with the purple combo and more particularly that FABULOUS Paper Artsy flower clock stamp! I hope you like them as much as I do. I was able to make a number of toppers at Craft Club last week, using this technique - and this isn't all of them so stand by to seem some more over the next day or so. Always great to have some in reserve and these seem less male or female so very handy for running up that emergency card.
Anyway, have a terrific Tuesday, I'm led to believe that there are three hours of crafting on QVC today with Amy - Dawn's off today (according to her blog she's decorating!) and I wish her luck - I HATE decorating!
