I'm on a day off today and as it is virtually impossible to go out due to the annual London to Brighton bike ride which comes through our village, I decided to stay home and potter. I've planted some French marigolds, nasties and lobelia....let's hope the sodding snails don't get them, I mosied down to the main road to take a few snaps of the cyclists, rather them than me but jolly good on them....and I've made a few cards. I made this one for this week's LIM challenge - One Layer Off The Edge, can you spot the mistake?
Grrr, how bloody annoying. How many times have I done this now? In future maybe the LIM ladies can make the words One Layer flash on/off for idiots like myself ?? Never mind, I know I'm not the only one to have made this mistake. Fortunately I also made it for Sweet Stampin - Say It With Flowers and Time Out challenges - Summer/Flowers The image is an old one by Penny Black which I coloured with watercolour pencils, the sentiment is also by PB. I added a soupcon of glitter (anyone know how to add a cedilla?) and a few blue gems. The card featured in my last post was a winner at Creative Inspirations, so thanks ladies you cheered me up after a shitty week at work.
Thanks also to those of you who left comments and advice about my sewing machine dilemma. I have managed to track down a machine repair shop and intend to have them take a look to establish if it's terminal or not. Fingers crossed my skirt will get finished soon.
I wonder where the last bike rider is right now?
I'm off now to tackle a mountain of ironing, have a good week all.
