Lazy Sunday ....

Morning,

This morning dawned sunny and fresh - perfect ballooning weather! Wind still not quite in the right direction though, see further down.
 
Update on the ATC materials from my Isle of Skye buddy - here's how the ATC turned out ....
 
 
Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Gloss cardstock treated with alcohol inks and a straw (done recently whilst pal, Wynneth, was visiting)
  • Stampers Anonymous sentiment stamped in the frame using Memento tuxedo black ink
  • Art Impressions image coloured using alcohol markers and then cut out
  • Hampton Arts tape measure image stamped using Memento tuxedo black and coloured using EB1 Spectrum Noir alcohol marker
  • 2 aged brass mini brads used to attach the frame to the ATC

Forgotten what I was sent?


 
The new challenge over at Pan Pastels is CUTE AND CUDDLY so I might have a go at that in  bit, particularly since I have a commission to make a card for my surrogate grandson to give to his little brother SG#2.


Talking of which, it was surrogate grandson #2's first Birthday party yesterday and we were invited along. Now hubby was at a model show all day (had a gr8 day by all accounts) so we got there late - and managed to miss most of the littleys but found there was still Peppa Pig cake to be had - mmmmmm 
 
Birthday boy, happy little chappie, isn't he?

He's got this walking lark off Pat!!! Doors? No problemo!
 
And the Bristol Balloon Fiesta? Wind nearly in the right direction but the balloons were still not really close enough ...


It's been a few years since we got a GREAT view, in fact, look at a couple from 2011, a year when they passed right over the house!

2011 they came RIGHT over our heads!

Mmmmm Peppa Pig cake ? shame you missed most of the littlies (not !?) ha... ha...

Pity about the wind direction for the Balloons Festival, my bruv and family were in Bristol for the weekend and got a couple of good pix. I think they found about 20 of the Gromits whilst sight seeing.

Love how your swap ATC turned out, that's a cute image and I LOVE the tapemeasure image.

luv
