As some of you will know, today I'm waiting on the arrival of a crafting pal, Lauren (aka BlueBertie) for the weekend - we plan to craft like crazy women (nothing new there then!) and I have some craft shopping planned too. AND on Sunday the two of us will be joined by Cherry and we'll drive to the Newbury Art Stamps show where we'll be meeting up with Debs - YAY, ROAD TRIP!!! There WILL be photos, but possibly not till Monday but look out for them! To this end I've had to schedule this post as I shall be busy putting the last minute touches to the house and dining room (aka the crafting room or requirement for the weekend) as we have projects to achieve ..... I've bought wooden framed mirrors from IKEA for us to embellish with beeswax/paint/stamping/pan pastels/mica powders and beads!! AND a mini journal for us each to crack on with - IF there's time!!
A fellow craftbubbler asked whether anyone could think of a collective noun for a group of craftbubblers .... well what about just a collective noun for a bunch of crafters? All I came up with (as a rubber stamping card maker) was an inking of crafters - can you think of any?
HOWEVER, in amongst all this, which included me MAKING a dessert (do I hear gasps of surprise and more than a little disbelief?!?!?!), I still managed to find time to complete a little light crafting and have another masculine card to share with you.
- C6 300 gsm Kraft card and matching Kraft envelope
- Offcut of black card and a piece of sage green card
- White card panel
- Rubbadubbadoo pocket watch image inked using versamark ink before grey pan pastel was applied using an applicator previously used for green pan pastel and not cleaned - I deliberately wanted a greenish grey and it worked perfectly (in my mind anyway!)
- TPC Studio sentiment inked in Memento tuxedo black
- Scotch Quick Dry glue
Hope you like it, using the offcuts and pan pastels it was super quick to make, no cutting or faffing involved!
For those of you sceptics (or do I mean people who know how domesticated I am ..... NOT!!!) - here is the finished dessert - Brown Bread Beano ....
|All ready for spoons!|
And now for What's On Your WEEKEND Work Desk .........
|Oh Yes, we're READY to craft!!!|
As the coffin was being lowered into the ground at a Traffic Warden’s funeral, a voice from inside screams “I’m not dead, I’m not dead. Let me out!” The Vicar smiles, leans forward sucking air through his teeth and mutters “Too f**king late pal, I’ve already done the paperwork!!!!” boom boom!
