Irene and I had a lovely crafty day out, stopping for a couple of statutory coffee shop revivals on route!
Here are a couple of my favourite cards from Barbara's selection.....
I love how she layers her cards using a brayer with lots of stamps and inks creating 3d images on a flat card.
This is a technique I really need to practise more. Now where did I put that brayer!
After our trip through to Aberdeen and stops for "yummies" I came home to an empty house as we'd been invited to a BBQ down on the village beach. I wish I'd taken some photos. I have never seen the beach so busy so late in the day. It was a wonderful barmy warm evening and if I hadn't needed to be up bright and early Saturday for work I think I'd stayed late into the evening. The kids were happy popping in and out of the sea, sunshine, fab location, good friends and yummy food....what more do you need?
A great finish to a lovely day.
Yesterday was spent at work and then again down in the harbour for a dook.
We have got to make use of all this lovely weather whilst it is here don't you agree?
This was followed by a cheeky M & S Chinese meal, nomn, nomn, and my excuse.....it is a Saturday night and I can!
All washed down by a bottle of Crabbies Scottish Raspberry Ginger beer. Have you tried one? Oh my, they're mighty fine and just perfect for a summer's evening.
That's all from me today, with all the extra hours at work my daily chores are mounting, boo, hiss, but I do hope for some time to play at some point later.
It is our village Gala this week, it started yesterday so I think we'll be out and about a lot with activities this week. Tonight it is the family quiz....better get my thinking cap on! There are never any crafty questions.....the thickness of card stock...die cuts...LOL. I think I shall be relying on my QI knowledge!
Tomorrow I am having another crafty day out so it will be another late post but I am hoping it will be worth the wait! Mmmm, what am I going to be up to?!
