She book folds hahaha!!!
Good morning blogging chums. Hope this finds you well.
Thank you for your lovely and encouraging comments about my diary of carp lol!!! I'm not one to be koi . . . . . . .koi, carp, gettit??? Look, just humour me eh hahaha!!!
Some of the carp is ongoing;
Calibur still being tricksy
Camera still being tricksy
Work still being tricksy
Was going to borrow a friends' camera but the software wasn't compatible with my old laptop (I think its running Windows Noah's Ark Edition lol!) so I've had to make do with my phone.
The first book fold I did was the free heart pattern one that's been doing the rounds (forgot to photograph it so will pop it on another time)
These two were patterns I paid for from ebay. Ive done the "Charity" one to go in the window at work to advertise that we sell books. I did think about doing "Read" but thought that was more likely to get half inched (yes, sadly it happens).
I have painted the cover in lime green eco acrylic paint from CE. I didn't want to make it too fancy in case it made it too tempting for half inching lol!
I have inked the word with Crushed Olive distress Ink
This second one of a VW Camper Van is for one of my volunteers. He is a lovely guy who works very hard, despite a disability, with me on a Tuesday morning. He loves cars and also Camper Vans so I thought he may like this as a little thank you.
I have also painted the cover of this with the same paint but in a pearlised blue and inked the bottom half of the van in Broken China Distress Ink.
I have my Allen keys now so will be attempting to repair the Calibur again. Christine Emberson passed my email to Spellbinders and Ive had an email from them wanting various details.
Watch this space.
I am still trying to play catch up round your blogs. From Sunday, I have some time off so will have more time to do that properly.
Thanks for bearing with me and have a happy Friday and weekend (Hungarian GP hurrah!!! Don't start that joke off about my doctor again Val lol!!!). Hopefully will have some cards to show you soon or I'm afraid its the pole dancing hahaha!!!
