Hello everyone, I hope you have had a good Saturday so far. Mine started wonderfully with the qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix - yaaaaaaay FORMULA ONE IS BACK!!
Thursday night the strip light in our kitchen went phut, with a pop and a flash. Last night saw me scrabbling up a step ladder to change the starter motor but that didn't make any difference so today we toddled off to the local DIY store to buy a new tube. Who knew there could be so much choice?! Anyhoo, we managed to get one and get it home in the car in one piece - what a daft idea to put a glass tube in a cardboard sleeve but leave the ends open! Then came the Challenge Annika moment when Toad had to get the cover off the light, remove the old tube and insert the new one. Last time we had to do it there had been a lot of huffing and puffing as the builders who had installed the light apparently only had one screw left to fix it to the ceiling! But, not to worry, success! I am now cooking dinner in a properly lit kitchen rather than ferreting about by candlelight like last night.
With that job done I thought I'd have a go at this week's LESS IS MORE challenge. This time, Chrissie and Mandi have come up with a sketch for us to have a play with, and the instruction that it should be a tall and thin card, like a DL or similar. Unfortunately my card came out looking a bit like me - not tall enough and not thin enough! But it isn't square, so I hope it still counts.
This little bunny was a freebie stamp with a magazine last year (or it might have even been the year before), painted with distress inks and then I used Nestie classic circles and the out of the box technique for its ears. Papers are from old pads that have long since lost their covers so no information there. Sentiment is Hero Arts and stamped in Memento Rich Coco for a slightly softer look than black.
Right, got to dash, can smell something burning so dinner must be nearly ready!
