Good morning one and all. Hope all is well with you and yours. I am selfishly enjoying my time away from work. I had all good intentions of blitzing housework etc but to be honest, I've just been chilling and resting my "itis". Its been nice to have days where I'm not humping (Maureen, don't even think about it !!!) bags and boxes so I just thought, I'm having a break!
I've made a couple of cards and a couple of bits of jewellery and spent time with Mr D and friends and it been wonderful not having to clock watch...........but, unless I won last nights Lotto, it will be over all too soon and doing extra days next week as my manager is off. Sadly, we have a funeral to attend next Thursday so I'm hoping she has managed to get someone to cover that day.
I think you could be right about Flash over the road. Its been nippy round the Trossachs so he has been witnessed a couple of days ago, but fully clothed and wearing one of those hats with the flaps over the ears..............made him look like Deputy Dawg lol!!!
Now, today's card is the first of 2016 for MAWTT Team A. I have now been on this fab DT for a year now.................would have thought I'd be barred by now !!! I hope that some of you will join in the fun this time round.
Its Diane's turn at choosing the theme and this time its..................................
Embossing (Wet or dry)
Silver mirror card
SB Labels 4
SW Ornate Octagons Striplet
CE leafy embossing folder (don't know its name, sorry)
CS teal and silver texture paste
John Lockwood sentiment
Peacock Feathers DI
Mei Flower silver bling
I actually did this grouted background at a workshop that John did about 6 months ago. I was supposed to be helping but in a quiet moment, had a go myself & me being me and having to be different, I decided to use 2 different colour pastes rather than to one that everyone else was doing.
I loved the effect and the sparkle (I tried to capture the sparkle on the first photo) but the piece of card sat in my box whilst I decided what to do with it.............and then the months went by lol!!!
So, I fished it out for my DT creation, determined to use it this time. I used the Ornate Octagons Striplet cut twice together in white to use under the sentiment then I cut it again out of silver mirror card and extended the pattern, before cutting it in half and nipping into it for the border.
I know its likely to be a "Marmite " card but the magpie in me likes the shiny bits.
Well, that's me for today chaps. Please pop along to MAWTT to see what the other gals have created and to join in the challenge.
Ps.....Lotto update......... still employed. x
