Good morning everyone. Hope you are well and to those who are not, I send happy vibes.
Lesley, I think I read somewhere that you have been in hospital. Hope its nothing serious chuck.
I must apologise for some of the delays in getting comments on peeps blogs but Blogger has been very temperamental of late. I lost my entire reading list and then my dashboard, which sent me into panic as I thought me doodahs had gawn into cyberspace.
Also, it used to be just Wendy's (Spanish Crafter) blog I had to access from my phone but now Jacquie, Jenny and Kate's have followed suit so its been testing lol!!!
Thank you to my HoC boss Mynn who has pushed the followers button.
Also, the lovely Mr D has pulled a name from the bowl for my 100 up paddle prize and the winner is . . . . . . . .drumroll . . . . . . .Nattyboots!!!
Congratulations Elaine and thank you to everyone who has supported this little corner of Blogland. Elaine, please email my chum John at email@example.com and he will pass your email on to me to get in touch with you (Im in a Duck Protection Program so don't publicly show my email address lol!)
Now today's card is my DT creation for this weeks MAWTT Challenge, as set by Emily and the theme is . . . . . . .Sewing !!! Please pop over and have a peek at what my teamies have created and why not have a go yourselves.
As most folk who have been paddling for a while will know, I can't sew for toffee so it was an "eeeeeek" moment but then, inspired by our lovely Janice of Created by Jan (the other Janices are lovely too, by the way lol!!!) who does amazing stitched cards, I thought "give a stitched card a go"
Gold mirror card
Stitch-a-Circle Puppy (free pattern) from www.stitchingcards.com
Couture Creations Swiss Dots embossing folder
I only had gold or silver thread that seemed suitable so I went with a gold dawgie. It was great fun to do so Janice, you may have got me started on something lol!!!
I hope you don't mind the lack of sentiment but I keep changing my mind about where he will be heading and for what occasion hahaha! (I may keep him as he is cute lol!)
Hope some of you may join in the challenge as it would be great to see some familiar names. . . . . Janice, there's no excuse as you are the card stitching queen lol!!!
Well, when this goes live, I shall be John's glamorous (???) assistant at CE Towers for his latest workshop. No doubt he will be all tanned and fresh faced next to me, still using concealer and BB cream. . . . . . .perhaps I should just give in and use Polyfiller and creosote and have done with it (would probably be cheaper than Nivea and Touche Eclat!!!).
Will try and be a more frequent blogger, Blogger and work permitting as I am doing extra days next week to cover my boss, who is on leave. . . . . .will need a holiday myself after doing the extra lol!!!
Enjoy the rest of the week.
Ps. . . . . I think it was Maureen who asked what "CAS" meant in relation to a card. It means Clean And Simple, so quite plain and minimal embellishment. Sorry for the delay in replying.
And Karen, the buddleja is made up of loads of punched out tiny individual flowers (a Tonic punch) stuck to foam pads that I have made a long domed shape with first. Click here to see another and close ups.
Last but not least, yes Jenny, I did watch Rush and I did enjoy the GP even though just highlights. Can't wait for Silverstone!
