I didn't do half as much as I planned to do at weekend. I did manage to watch some of the England match. What a great result! Not the best news of the week, that must go to the safe rescue of the young football team and their coach in Thailand. But sad that one of the rescue divers lost his life! Other news - on Monday I celebrated 500 extra days on this planet, and my employers are currently looking into how to offer CPR training to employees - there are over 600 if us in total!
I digress from the reason we are here .... this weekend I made a birthday card for Mr M's sister (forgot to take a pic), an anniversary card, and a few Lego ninja head cards, just need to add a happy birthday sentiment. I also decided to have another go with the brayer. Nothing planned, just me, the brayer and some distress oxides. Practise makes perfect as they say! I was that pleased with the end result that I thought I would cut some letters out on the scan & cut. First lot I cut were too small, but second lot were a decent size. These will be used in my travel scrapbook that I am putting together.
Side desk below shows the bits not quite put away. There is also my crafting sample book on the left. I've read about these on a few blogs, so I put one together. This weekend I added samples of the no shed glitter card, coloured with my promarkers, so I can see at a glance how they look. I also ordered some more promarkers (I really do like them!). Whilst on the site, I spotted a Summer Giveaway prize draw open until September with dozens of great prizes, so head on over if you like art stuff. The site is CassArt. (I hope it's okay to mention it).
Main desk has the ninja cards, and a few more minion cards to assemble. There are also some papers for the travel scrapbook.
The ninja eyebrows took some practise!
Our grandsons are coming for a sleepover at weekend, and the eldest one wants to make his two teachers a Thank you card. He loves glitter ... so next week's desk could be a disaster zone!
That's all from me for this week. I will do my visiting after work. I'm sorry if you visited me last week and I didn't get back to you. I'll try harder this week! Have a lovely week Heather x
