I'm sure it will come as a HUGE surprise when I tell you that (shock horror) it's only blooming well raining! I KNOW, you're all stunned, aren't you?
Hubby's headed off to Bath today as the car's in the garage for a minor repair - he'll be back later. Now I COULD craft the day away (no-one to see me!) but I did that the ENTIRE weekend so I feel just a smidge guilty doing it again so soon - besides, having a guest all weekend meant some of the more mundane chores didn't get done ....... like the ironing! Bit of a mountain built up again and I'm sure the sock stealing YETI have established base camp somewhere near the half way mark again! Ooopsie!
Plus, I need to get to the post office to send my 1000th post blog candy on its way to Clare, the winner of said candy.
Also, as most of my regular readers know by now, I swap ATC materials with a crafting buddy who lives on the Isle of Skye. Recently she sent me three items with which I have to make an ATC - and here they are:
- ATC blank,
- Dimensions DAISY image inked using versamark and coloured using Sofft tools and pan pastels (my technique still needs work so please be gentle with me)
- Alcohol markers to colour the image (sadly the original ink must have been oil or alcohol based as it started to react with my markers around the face so there's not much in the way of shading as a result)
- Glitter glue to highlight.
