Hi all, happy Sunday! Rather late in the day for me, but what the heck. It's been a lovely lazy Sunday here at Squirrel Towers, after Church it was bacon butty, and a catch up on The Apprentice (they are shaping up to be a right bunch), followed by a leisurely crafting session whilst watching the Japanese Grand Prix. Naturally there will be Poldark to round off the day later (grin).
I've had a bit of a My Favorite Things afternoon, which was lovely. I've built up quite a collection of the character stamps and don't use them half as much as I want to. So today, I pulled out three sets and got inky.
The card I am sharing today is:
So, this has been made using the MFT BB Jingle All The Way set
Panted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Matting layer is Dovecrafts Winter Blooms
6x4 custom made card base
Now, before you say "that green isn't a Distress Ink colour", well....it's kind of every DI green! I was trying to match it to the paper, so there was a sploop of every green shade went into the mixing palette!
We had an adventure yesterday afternoon in that Hobbycraft has now opened it's first store in Suffolk - and it happens to be only a mile and a half away. Now, this will shock you, it was Toad's suggestion to go! He wanted to check out their modelling section. I warned him that I thought it would be busy, but wow, it was HEAVING! OK, they had only been open three days, and everyone is starting on their Christmas makes, but crumbs, it was packed. The queue for the tills was right around the store. Toad was ready to leave, but by then I had a "tiny" collection of bits.....
I might leave it a while before the next visit though, rofl.
Back to work for me tomorrow, having had a lovely week off. Not sure that I actually want to get up at 6.00 in the morning again. Bah!
Hugs to all
