Just a fleeting post and challenge entry


Just a quick post from me, busy day today following a busy weekend.

Had some friends round to dinner last evening so it was all hands to the pumps with the preparation before their arrival. Fortunately (for me) my hubby does enjoy cooking (unlike me who ENDURES it!) and produced a splendid meal which all four of us enjoyed.

This morning I was visiting my aunt and uncle and this afternoon I've been visiting a friend in hospital. My aunt and uncle are well but sadly, my friend in hospital is not - otherwise she wouldn't be there! Get well soon matey.

I needed a new home card so I DID manage a second entry for the LIM challenge of DOODLES for the Simply Less Is More blog and that's why I've nipped on to post this .....

Materials used:
  • Linen effect DL card and matching envelope
  • Craft Stamper freebie inked in Memento rich cocoa
  • Anita's sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black
  • Faber Castell Pitt pen to doodle the zentangle path and corners

Of course, nothing is ever simple and my first attempt looked absolutely fine until I realised two things. The first thing was that I really didn't card for the font of the sentiment or the fact I inked it in grape jelly and the second? Well, I know we've all done it but how stupid did I feel when I realised I'd only made th eblooming thing upside down! DUH! Guess I'll be using that card blank for matting and layering!

Happy Monday, what's left of it! Blooming parky this morning and not really warmed up much all day ..... but at least it's neither raining nor snowing! Works for me!!!
