Saturday and it's challenge day but ....

Morning all,

I wondered whether I would or wouldn't have a CAS make to share with you this morning as I'm away from my desk again this morning. I am heading off to Newbury Racecourse this morning, to meet up with a pal at the Newbury Paper Craft Show ..... for a decadent day of shopping .... OF THE CRAFT VARIETY - my favourite kind! That said, those who know me well would know that I probably WOULD have time so do stay with me to the bottom!!

I have SOME other crafting to share with you this morning and will add the LIM entry at the bottom of this post .... I had a pal come out to play yesterday .... I've had a pair of the FAB (and CHEAP) IKEA mirrors in my cupboard for a while - they make SUCH great Mixed Media projects and my pal was keen to try MM.

Take two ordinary Malma mirrors from IKEA at £1.50 each ....
Shove as much MM "schtuff" as you can think of, on to a table ....
And you have my dining room, ready for some MM action!!!
Oh, the benefit of hindsight, Sue's now wishing she'd put the gloves on BEFORE painting!!!!

Hmm, hope it will look better when it's finished
At this point we went out to dinner at a local hostelry and enjoyed a very pleasant evening, and a gammon steak too!

Came home and decided my project was dry enough to gesso ...

And here is my CAS creation today ..

My card
And a closer view of the silhouette
The back of the envelope and card
The front of the envelope and the insert

morning matey, have an awesome day at Newbury, I sooooo.... wish I could be there with you, jealous ? you bet... it's been a while since I was last there sniff ;0(

looks like you had a ball yesterday with your pal, those IKEA mirrors are so great for MM projects, yours is looking fabby already, can't wait to see the completed version.

Love your LIM card, that's such a fabby VI stamp(which I don't have yet ! ). I followed the link from the LIM blog, trying to get myself motivated to craft I popped over there and was delighted to see your card was the first entry - well done matey - you must have been up at the crack of dawn ;0)

Hope you've had a great day.
