Hello there. It's been a few days but I have been very busy. No change there then. Last week saw me at The British Wildlife Centre with my husband Mike and Benson's owner, Olive. It was a really sunny day and I managed to get some good photographs of the animals and owls. On Sunday I went up to Camden Market with a couple of girl friends. We took a canal trip as far as Little Venice which was lovely. Then we looked around a few of the markets there. You certainly see some sights if you are a people watcher - which I am. Girls with hair colours you can only imagine and so many tattoos. It's worth a visit just to say you've been. We later had a meal in Islington in a Brazilian restaurant.
Anyhow, this card is made using a Penny Black stamp. I 'Nestied' a hole in the main card and embossed the front with a Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then cut the image out with another Nestie and matt and layered it with the same Nestie only a bigger size. The boots are shiny black, using a gelly roll pen. The dress is also glossy using the same type of pen. Embellishments finish off the design. As it's now September, I think there may be more Christmas on the way.
I go back to my part time job tomorrow. I can hardly believe eight weeks have come and gone. Roll on Tenerife in October.
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
