Morning and welcome to another lazy old Sunday!

Morning readers,

How's your weekend progressing? Got a BBQ in yet this summer or has it been too cold/wet/windy? Us too! Yesterday it was threatening rain all blooming day - I never got to hang my towels out on the line at all!

I've a snippet make to share with you this morning. When I cut image panels 13½cm square from a piece of A4 card I get a nice ATC width strip left over ......

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of white card (as described above)
  • Kaisercraft mini grid stamped using Ranger Archival watering can ink
  • Paper Artsy splatter image stamped randomly using a combination of the Ranger Archival watering can and Adirondack red pepper inks
  • Stamplorations chevron (from their chevrons and arrows set) stamped using Ranger Archival cobalt blue
  • Stamplorations sentiment (from the same set as the chevron) stamped using Ranger Archival jet black ink

I'll be entering this for the following challenge/s:-
  1. Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Snippet challenge
  2. Suzi Bee's blooming challenge - challenge No. 85 - ANYTHING GOES with the added twist of SOMETHING BLUE
  3. Art Impressions - challenge No.162 - RED, WHITE and BLUE
  4. Allsorts challenge - challenge No. 316 - USE A STAMP ... actually I used FOUR!
  5. Scribble and Scrap - FINAL CHALLENGE!!! - ANYTHING GOES

Yesterday hubby was involved in the putting together of a flat pack play station for surrogate grandson! ...... There was hilarity, hard work and a lost screw which (thankfully) we found before the pets or surrogate grandson! Followed by ham and cheese toasties al fresco ... and, yes, we beat the rain!

First we cleared the space and trimmed the laurel .... with a little help from Iris!

Plainly exhausted by supervising, Iris chose to nap in the bag we put the Laurel wreckage in!

Cracking on apace!

Oh dear, another supervisor!

Their hard work is approved (and test driven) by the birthday boy,
despite the fact it's weeks to his birthday!

Terrific ATC and a good one for the male of the species.

Look like some hard work rewarded by some fun. Great pictures.

Had a little rain yesterday, but not much, today overcast and it's anyone's guess whether precipitation will occur!

Hugs, Sarn xxx

Great pictures.

We did have some rain yesterday but not a lot.

Love the ATC.

Wonderful ATC Kathy! Lovely fresh colours and just perfectly stamped, I'd still be hovering about wondering which stamps to use and where!

Love the design of this ATC Kathy. And the colours ... looks like you were thinking patriotic thoughts :)

The birthday boy looks like he's thoroughly enjoying himself. :)
