Actually, when I started putting this post together it was yesterday! I hope you all had a good weekend wherever you are. I've had a busy one, spending time with the family on Saturday and out walking yesterday so time crafting has been limited. In fact, I've only got this little card to share with you tonight ... it's one for Di's snippet challenge.
I've been reorganising the shelf above my craft desk ... the one I tend to put all sorts of bits and pieces on for want of a better place to put them ... and during the sort out I found this topper, cut out of a birthday card I received a couple of years ago. To me, she looked a very chic French mademoiselle so I thought of a card dedicated to shopping in Paris.
And this stamp from Born to Shop seemed very appropriate.
For this card I used the following materials:
- White hammered cardstock, 1 piece to form a card base measuring approximately 4" square and another measuring 3½ x 2½ for topper.
- Wild Rose Studio paper pack, Letters from Paris
- Docrafts stamp set, Bubbles, Born to Shop and Memento ink pad, Tuxedo Black
- Tim Holtz Distress ink pads, Victorian Velvet, Black Soot.
- The silver and black card is an M&S label, too pretty to throw away!
- Pink and white lace and pink gems from stash.
I'm also submitting this card to the Fat Pages and Cards With Attitude Challenge 7 - Theme Anything Goes/Bling
Other things that have kept me from crafting this weekend. Well, during a trip up to B&Q I discovered two really good sized plastic storage boxes so I've been sorting out that shelf. Now all those little boxes are stored tidily away in these new bigger boxes. The EM very kindly got out his label-maker and I can now see at a glance what is in each one.
Another time-consuming task I set myself over the weekend was to sort out the labels on this blog ... I've not been very organised with this in the past and I now have far too many labels cluttering up the sidebar ... something has to be done. I've made a good start on re-labelling the 350 plus posts but I could be some time :)
Saturday we took our youngest grandson, Alun, to MacDonald's to celebrate his thirteenth birthday ... can hardly believe he's a teenager now! Here's a photo of the birthday boy:
He's growing up fast ... plays football for the school now and wants to play for Celtic when he's older. It's that or join the army!
Right, it's after midnight so I'm signing out and going to bed.
