Thanks for popping in and keeping me company.
Sitting here in the hospital, waiting for Dave while he does a treadmill test, (or hamster wheel run as he preferes to call it).
He was dusting off his trainers this morning,
all set for his strenuous endurance test.
Hopefully this exercise will give us some more clues
as to what is going on.
So I thought I would use the time wisely and write my daily blog….
Monday’s blog is flowers and trees, so let me look into my photo archives from the TV show yesterday.
Mmmm. No flowers and trees, but I will add a little je ne sais quoi later on!
Stamp the new Best Wishes Ribbon stampset
onto a piece of our stencil/gelli card,
using a Potting Soil or Coffee ink pad.
Colour in the ribbon writing using Spectrum Noir pencils.
Dust the card with talc, then colour in the ribbon words with a Versamark pen (bullet end). Add clear embossing powder
And heat emboss with a heat gun.
I like this one: Two-speed, folds up.
This is like glazing the letters. See?
Add a little Post-It tag underneath.
Using Clarity Stencil brushes, dust Evergreen Bough and Stonewashed over the words and Post-It, brushing out from the centre with the green, the circling with the blue.
Outline the little tag with a black micron pen,
either freehand or with a ruler, and stamp on your special day into the box using the same ink pad. Create a little hanging illusion from the S, by literally drawing a string from the tag.
Layer up and mount onto matching colour card.
Now to wait until I get home with his nibs,
and add a tree or a flower…..
Well, he wasn’t feeling great after his brief encounter with that very fast moving ramp,
so we came home via the local farm shop, and bought loads of healthy stuff:
Pork pies, cheese and fruit cake.
Time for a little siesta now….
Oh! before I retire for a snooze,
let me add a tree…..or three!
Perfect. Love these three.
Enjoy the rest of the day!
Love & hugs
