Tuesday and it's another day on the cold front!
And my hubby had planned more painting but the rain woke me up again during the night so I'm not sure that's going to work. It's 12c here at the moment and it's still pretty early in the morning but I'm just not sure how DRY it is out there and, since I'm not dressed, I don't plan on stepping outside to find out either!
Yesterday saw us heading to Costco with our neighbour, in itself not very exciting but we came back with THE most decadent jar of goodies, chocolate and caramel covered macadamia nuts - mmmmmmm! They won't last as long as they should!
Came back and unpacked and then thought ...... dinner? Well, I suggested the Santa Fe and my other half said Manny's - those of you who have been to both will probably know which won! Now, Manny's is EXCEPTIONALLY busy and you normally have to be there well before they open to get a table ...... so we called ahead and got put on their list (which was 45 minutes already) and headed out the door - still got to wait at the other end but, boy, was it ever worth it? The answer is YES!
I also managed a little light crafting, again ATC's but not well pleased with my efforts so won't showcase them individually but here's the batch - hope you like them.
I used images from: Kaisercraft, Inkadinkado, My Minds Eye, Studio112, Hampton Art and Penny Black. I used distress stain (spun sugar) and inks from Versamagic, Versamark, Brilliance and Color Box as well as pearl-ex powders, faux gemstones, punches by Martha Stewart and hairspray (to set the mica powders)
