Good morning blogging buddies. Hope you are all well.
A splashy happy welcome to 3 new paddlers who have pressed the "follow" button so hello to Maria, Babs and Redhatlady. Hope that you can visit often and enjoy the show.
Its time for a new challenge for Team A over at MAWTT and our Wendywoo is now at the helm and boss lady so I'm on my best behaviour. This month's challenge is . . . . . . . . . . .Snow in Summer.
I can only hope that we don't see any actual snow in Winter, never mind Summer!!!
Be lovely to see some of you have a dabble in the challenge but please pop and have a look at what my team mates have come up with.
I have a load of Hunkydory packs that I bought before I discovered die cutting and delved into one of them for this snowy decoupage scene. I tried to angle the top photo so you could see the little streaks of glitter that I applied but I'm not sure that I succeeded lol!!!
Hunkydory decoupage and matching card
Sue Wilson Snowflake Lattice embossing folder
Cosmic Shimmer Silver PVA Pearls
Quickie glue pen
There are some lovely bits in the Hunkydory sets so I shall be making an effort to include them on my Christmas cards rather than them gather dust for another year.
I can still tart em up with a bit of embossing or a strategically placed pearl or two lol!!!
Now, I think it was Sam who asked about funky foam, you can get it in craft shops, usually in the kids section. Hobbycraft and The Range definitely sell it and you can usually buy it as individual sheets at about 50p per sheet or I got 50 sheets for a fiver (I hear you groan at the thought of what else I will be foaming with that lot to get rid of hahaha!!!)
Jacquie, apologies, the die on my last card was Sue Wilson's new Christmas Tree Greetings.
Once again, I have suffered a mishap. I was getting into of the car on Tuesday and whilst my right foot was still on the floor, a gust of wind blew the car door into my leg.
After 10 seconds of holding my breath with shock and pain I let loose with some language that my Mother would have raised her eyebrows at, so to anyone passing me on the street at that time, I apologise for my Turrettes like tirade.
I now have a bruised and swollen shin. . . . . . . . . and yes, I am thinking of changing my name to Lucky!!!
Ice packs and several painkillers later its still painful. I tried a sling but it made eating my dinner difficult lol!!!
Well, that's the latest instalment of Lucky Duck's Diary. Hopefully, the next one will be incident free.
Don't forget to pop over to MAWTT and say "Hi" to Wendy and the rest of the gals.
Ps.....See you Sunday Anne. Will be around the Daisys Jewels Stall about 11am.
