Then I realised it was supposed to be a one layer card and came up with this one.
I used a new stamp from Woodware, it's one of those 'profound' ones (or should that read pukey?) but I thought it could be suitable for someone who's feeling rough. I suppose if they were feeling really shit they might just hurl it back at me across their sick bed. Yeah....the recipient will have to be chosen with care.
I made a heart shaped mask with a die and sponged the sky and rainbow with various distress inks. My cloud mask was made with a die from Joy Crafts. I don't like this card much, (in my head it looked different!) it resembles something from a Disney shop especially with the saccharin sentiment but as I didn't get any smudges on it (my usual trick) it's getting entered, OK?

I've just been round the local vintage shops and chazza's...not a thing to be had, most disappointing! Although I did want to try on several items in BHF (prices now much more reasonable, perhaps sales were suffering???) but I think the person in the changing room must have died and after nearly fifteen minutes waiting to get in there I abandoned the idea, and proclaimed in a loud sarky voice 'I haven't time to be waiting here all day!' It probably fell on deaf ears anyway. So as there's nothing to show you, instead I'll treat you to a glimpse of my latest crochet project.
After I finished the Oxfam baby jumper I wasn't going to start anything new as I'm still wading through granny squares for a blanket but according to the girls at Stitch & Bitch, they have anything up to ten projects on the go at one time! I was getting bored with the small granny square blanket and have mum's wool stash to use, so started a big one which once completed will go to the hospice.
Exciting stuff eh ?
I recently received a complaint that I'm not posting enough. I did explain that my life has been dull, dull, dull lately and I have no wish to bore the proverbial pants off my readers, but there is something on the horizon which I'm very much looking forward to, a bit of an adventure really.
More excitement now...cherry buns for tea. Hooray.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend.
