Good morning everyone...........................................It's me!!!
Never a dull moment at The Pond. Allsorts going on and I am sorry to have worried anyone (had a few messages wondering if I was ok 😊)
A few health issues but I am sure that you are more bored than Mrs Bored of Boredsville about reading about which is the latest bit that is dropping off me so I will spare you lol!!!
I have also just completed my final exam for my FHP course (10 piggin hours, thankfully in 3 stages) and have passed my theory with distinction. I start my 2 week practical training next week (hopefully as have not been great these past few days). I have done dummy runs to the college clinic by car and public transport and I don't like either lol!!! Car takes around an hour each way, if the traffic in Birmingham is moving. By public transport, its 2 buses and 2 trains and an hour and a half each way but, someone else is doing the driving and there will be loo facilities most of the journey.
Now, I am rambling on and nearly forgetting that its time for another challenge at MAWTT and my turn to choose the theme so I have gone for...........................
I am sure that you all have a bit of acetate knocking about in the craft room so dig it out and get entering.
This was one of the last lot of samples I made for John before taking my sabbatical. I don't do shaker cards usually but this one just popped into my head as these things do.
Blush pink mirror card
Papermania Confetti vellum
JND Sams Starz dies
JND Christmas Rose die
JND Elderflower Leaves dies
JND Ivy die plate and matching stamp
JND Sentiment stamp
Presscut circle dies
Its an 8x8 card.........had to be to accommodate everything lol!!!
I cut the Sams Starz out of the vellum and then stuck that to the acetate after cutting a circle out of the centre of both. I then foam padded all the way around and also around the centre circle so that the sentiment stands alone, unbeaded.
I usually rub a bit of talc around the sides of the foam tape, on the inside where the beads are going to be, to stop them sticking to it.
Would probably make a lovely wedding card too.
Anyhoo, get yourselves over to MAWTT and join in.............you know you want too!!!
Before I scoot, just to announce the winner of the paddle prize from my last post to celebrate 200 followers.
My glamorous assistant Monsieur Canard pulled a name out of the hat (well, bowl) and he chose....................................
MYRA - woo woo!!!
Thank you everyone else for your wonderful comments and yes, I am more than happy for anyone to take any inspiration they like from my cards.
I know that Maureen will be bitterly disappointed that Myra has won but Mr D did ask if "that's the funny one?" I'm not sure if he meant funny haha or peculiar but I thought he meant Mrs Killen anyway.
Congratulations Myra, you have won the following......................................
Hope that you enjoy your prize which will be winging its way to you in the next couple of days.
Well, enough from me today, so happy Thursday and be good.
