Hi there readers
Well after my 2nd post of yesterday hubby and I headed off to a DIY store - had a change of plan and went to a Home Depot instead, found they'd got all their Christmas stuff in! Started putting it out before Halloween but now that the Halloween stuff has all been removed then Christmas has cranked up a gear.
The Gaylord Palms (hotel) has all it's Christmas lights in situ but not lit, yet - we went round to have a look - just in case!
For a change dinner was at TGI Fridays - goodness me it's been YEARS since we've been there but our good friends Wynneth and Tom ate there recently and it reminded us to give it another try - the ribs were very good. Across the road from the restaurant we heard a noise emanating from the small lake. It was a pretty loud noise so we felt the urge to investigate . . . what is it they say about a bird in the hand being worth two in the bush? What does that make this little lot worth then????
I mentioned yesterday that I had felt the urge to do some crafting before I had to pack all my stuff away . . . and here they are. The ATC was made with my new Martha Stewart RTG punch and some scraps of paper and an image from a Hero Arts clear stamp set. A simple card using scraps - always a satisfying project The sentiment is one I've had for many years, by Katie & Co, it was one from the dollar bin at Michael's which was a great way to build up a collection.
The card uses an image from Inkadinkado stamped (in black) on a white panel and then distressed using scattered straw, wild honey, frayed burlap and black soot. This was then rounded and mounted on a black rounded layer before mounting on a white/black layer on a tall card. The base layers had some zebra print organza ribbon tied in a knot round it prior to adhering to the card. I then used the fab post it technique (as appeared in Craft Stamper from designer Joanne Wardle) using the same distress ink colours and then stamped the Hero Arts sentiment in black.
Hope you liked the above cards.
Happy Tuesday peeps - what'cha got planned? Have a good one.
