Wednesday again - it will soon be the weekend but before then .....

Hi there,

How's the weather with you all this morning? Having had some seriously freakish weather over the last couple of weeks I'm really looking forward to some milder and DRYER weather - and, HOPEFULLY, SOON!!!! This morning is starting off well (for me anyway) with bright sunshine instead of showers - for a change. Hubby's gone too Gloucester this morning but he's expecting his train to be cancelled as, apparently, the train is cancelled due to what they are calling "an incident" and this usually means a replacement bus service. Hmmm, all being well, he should be home by the time I go out this afternoon - we'll be like ships that pass .... etc!

This afternoon I'm off out to visit the rellies, postponed from last week, which got rescheduled due to the snow! Here's hoping that nothing will happen between now and 2ish to cause either one of us to postpone it again.

Yesterday's nasty weather gave me a jolly good reason to stay in and craft so that's exactly what I did and here's what I ended up working on........

Materials used:
  • 12½ cm square white 250 gsm card and matching envelope
  • 12 cm square Kraft card panel
  • 11½ cm square white card panel edged with Distress Ink in tea dye
  • Domino image by A Stamp in the hand, inked in Memento rich cocoa and stamped twice in the bottom right corner
  • Imagine That sentiment inked in Memento rich cocoa
I plan to enter this over on the CASology challenge blog where their new challenge cue word is: -

Over on the I Love Pro Markers challenge blog they have launched a new challenge - it is: "LOVE IS ALL AROUND" - maybe my next project?

And as for What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday ..... look at the state of mine! I'm told that a cluttered desk is a sign of genius! I'm not so convinced, I think a cluttered desk shows someone who doesn't want (or can't be bothered) to tidy up - my excuse is that I am so short of storage space that there's simply nowhere for it ALL to go which is how come so much ends up on my desk - works for me!

I've had post from my trading card buddy on the Isle of Skye too. We exchange a materials challenge and so - here are my incoming materials.

My challenge is to turn these materials in to an ATC which I then return to her, along with my challenge materials for her to make in to an ATC and return ..... and so it goes on! Geddit?

My new issue of Craft Stamper hit the mat this morning too - so I am about to head off, grab a coffee and settle down for an hour.

Happy Wednesday to you all - Friday will be here before you know it!

Hope mr k's journey isn't too arduous today. We have sunshine here too and we're just about to head out to enjoy a little fresh air.

Love your domino card, that's a splendid image and the whole thing looks fabulous in Rich Cocoa (one of my fave inks.
