Good morning everyone. Hope this finds you fit and well.
Now its time for another Challenge over at MAWTT and Janice has chosen the theme of . . . . . . .
so get yourselves over there and have a go at the challenge.
Well, you can imagine this theme did not fill me with delight as I don't "do" cute, grunge, steampunk or fairies lol!!!
I had to turn to my good buddy Kate (cuilliesocks) with a loud shriek of "Hellllllllllp!!!" and good lass that she is, she swiftly dispatched all manner of fairy goodies. . . . .Thank you Kate!!!
Now, I selected this background (I think it was Imagination Crafts - Kate did kindly label the bags but stupidly, I emptied everything out onto my desk) and a separate stamped fairy, which I fussy cut around.
Cream and purple card
Items from Kate's fairy stash
Sue Wilson Timeless Striplet
John Lockwood sentiment
Black Archival ink
Picket Fence, Milled Lavender & Broken China distress inks
Obviously, Miss Fairy's wings were white so when I stuck her to the background, I coloured her wings to match the moon and bokeh background. As Eric Morecambe used to say, "you can't see the join" lol!!!
Apologies if its not the most inspiring of creations but if you pop over to MAWTT, you will see the much better offerings from my lovely team mates.
Had a lovely day out yesterday with Nesta. We went to Staunton Harold garden centre, had a mooch round (not outside for long as it was nearly as cold as a penguins' chuff) and a nice bite to eat for brunch. We then popped over to Breedon to see John and his Breedon Gals, which was lovely. I know 3 of the ladies from when I've helped out at CE Towers and they have kindly been following my progress with John so it was great to be able to get over and see them. One of the ladies made me a beautiful quilt a few months ago, to keep me warm on my down days and I have her permission to show it on the blog so I shall when I have finished showing John's samples.
They are truly a lovely bunch of gals and I know that John enjoys his workshops there. It was the furthest I'd driven since all this happened last May so its boosted the confidence.
Yorkie Wendy, I have to leave written instructions for anything domestically technical after he actually rang me at work once asking how to turn on the vacuum cleaner (I kid you not!!!)
Maureen, you're lucky George bothered to iron the pillowcases, bless him.
Another GP this weekend so guess what I'm doing lol!!! Hope you have a great few days and see you again soon with more of John's show samples.
P.s for Donna and any other US chums, Quorn is a micro protein so its similar to soya and I use the mince form to make my vegetarian cottage pie (hence Quorntage Pie). Littlelamb, I'm not vegetarian but prefer using it in lots of dishes rather than beef mince and Jenny L, what a coincidence you had the same for tea lol!!!
