Well I for one am a little tired of this Indian summer. I burn very easily and it's no fun for a pale English rose. I thought a Christmas card session might just cool me down.
I cut out some Nestie shapes and coloured the smaller one with Distress inks. Then I used a Little Claire peel off. I Cuttlebugged the flower shapes and coloured those with the corresponding Distress inks. I added blue and green to the card itself, using a brayer. (Not as well as Barbara Gray needless to say) If you notice the deliberate mistake - please leave a comment.
I have had such a busy week. My sister turned up on Wednesday with friends and we gave them lunch. Later we drove down to Gatwick and had dinner with them. I went up to London on Thursday to see some friends for a reunion. That night we had a curry with some other old friends who live half the year in Spain. Friday saw us looking after two dogs, as our neighbours moved house. And on top of all that I was working morning and evening too. So today I really 'slobbed out' and did very little - apart from watch some crafting on the TV and making this card.
We also have some X Factor to catch up on this evening. We are now viewing the US one too. (I can hear you all groaning from here!) So - can't stay here chatting. Bye for now.
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.
