To my American friends and fellow Brits in the States Happy Independence day, have a great celebration.
I was going to say "may your day go with a bang!" But after the news today of the increased security it doesn't seem appropriate, even though I actually mean enjoy the fireworks tonight.
Why the increased security because apparently now humans are being used as the bomb!
Why in the right mind would you? Bizarre.
Anyway on to lighter things and it is that time again "Share an oldie Friday!"
Feel free to join me sharing an oldie, I only ask that you link here and leave a comment, that way I know you are taking part and can visit your blog too.
Today I have decided on a little black and white number using one of my favourite ranges of Sugar Nellie digital images.
I have used Lizzie from the Simply Adorable digital range over at Sugar Nellie. The papers are from Doodlebug and the Sentiment from Marion Emberson Find joy everyday which is layered on SU punches. The Spellbinder dies are Grand Nestabilities Ovals and Scalloped Ovals plus the flower is from the Shapeabilities range Bauble blossom 1 and Foliage, pins and ribbon from stash. The digi image is coloured with copics and Stickles diamond glitter.
These images are just a dream to colour, not that I have been doing much colouring in of late, preferring to make more clean and simple cards.
Moving on from our oldie what are your plans for the weekend?
My eldest is playing in the pipe band again tomorrow at Forres Highland games so I think that will be our Saturday sorted, as for Sunday I have no plans as yet. I'm sure we'll think of something!
Today I intend on enjoying my last day of FREEDOM for a while as it's that time again...the schools break up for the summer holidays. Yikes! Family time can restrict craft time but maybe I should try and get the boys involved more. When younger they would jump at the chance but now-a-days not so much, the draw of electronic gadgets is too great. Lets hope for some fine weather so we can spend some quality time outside and down at the beach.
It only remains for me to wish you all the best for the weekend and I'll be back soon with more. x
