Finally the crafting drought is over! Three LOs this afternoon plus a card last night.
Before I show you the card I just want to point out that it was made with the recipient (my step SIL) in mind. It is totally not my personal taste - I don't do cute.
I love the technique though - it's a Joy Fold Card.
On to today...I had a wonderful day crafting and chatting...
All three LOs are for challenges on WeScrap - well, they would be if I could get onto the site - they need to be submitted before midnight - amazing what having a deadline can do!!
This is for Victoria's challenge "Quick and Coordinated". I used the July "Vanity Fair" kit and , yes, I did it within the 30 mins. allowed.
This one is for Jen's "Scrapping out of Season" challenge. Christmas in July. Photo is of Max's cousin Sam, the border collie, opening his presents.
And finally "Sketchy Saturdays" for 16th July. Photos of me and the clock I made last year. It actually keeps very good time..well, it would if I hadn't broken the mechanism whilst trying to change the battery a couple of weeks ago - on the lookout for a replacement.
My halo is slipping too. :(
Had some red wine last night and had chocolate this afternoon - I've been craving chocolate for days and was OK at home..but I knew there was a tin, in the fridge, at AMOM with delights such as Crunchie and Bounty and Toffee Crisp...which to choose? Crunchie of course. :) I was addicted to Toffee Crisp when pregnant with DS and haven't been able to face one since.
And talking of DS...he'll be home tomorrow..which means I'll be playing "Hunt the Laptop"...again! Even worse..he'll take over my mobile phone. I've tried to put him off..it has a pink case (which will apparently ruin his street cred) and a ringtone he really, really hates (JLo "On the Floor) but to no avail. Only plus side is the appearance of lots of males on my contact list...downside of this..I've watched them all grow up.
I can hear people asking why I let him get away with it. Basically, if he used the landline our bill would treble and I never use my full allowance of either texts or minutes. I renegotiated my monthly contract when I was looking after Dad (after only five days there I had the most horrendous bill for going over my limit) and haven't got round to changing it back. Let's face it, your phone contract is not the first thing you think about at a funeral.
I was going to wear a skirt (again!!) today, I was going to be "pretty in pink", then thought "sod it" and reverted to type...crop trousers and navy blue.. my favourite colour - :)
I've found some more great sayings for "My Thoughts" on Pinterest..here's today's:
I'm not saying who it's intended for..but if the cap fits...
