2nd post of the day - please scroll down to read earlier post

No sign of Aunt and Uncle yet - but they did only say they MIGHT come today or they might come Monday.

Warmest Congratulations to my crafting pal KAREN who has today been for her first interview in 19 years and got the job - she starts on MONDAY - YAY KAREN!!!! AND (jammy girl) she's working for Debbi Moore so getting paid to do a job she loves already - how cool is that?

I've been watching QVC's craft day but haven't bought anything . . . . yet - guess there probably isn't much I need right now particularly given the package which arrived this very morning.

As usual I tend to craft along with QVC on in the background and today has been no different. I wanted to enter the OLW (One Layer Wednesday) sentiments challenge over on the Simplicity blog here, so took my cream DL card and got cracking. Oh yes, forgot to mention that you have to use more than one sentiment and NO IMAGES!! trickier than it sounds! I used Brilliance Pearlescent Beige on my Crafty Individuals sentiment and it doesn't show up brilliantly (sorry, pun intended!!!) but (trust me) it's on the left of the brown pearls . . .


Materials used:
  • Cream linen DL card and matching envelope
  • Inkadinkado sentiment stamp
  • Crafty Individuals sentiment (Happiness is time spent with a friend)
  • Brilliance inks in Beige and Cocoa
  • Brown organza ribbon
  • Brown Kaisercraft faux pearls
