Good morning all, how are you this Monday morning?
How was your weekend?
Did you find the time to be a ninja crafter?!
I had a good day at work on Saturday, dare I say ahead of the game, which I have to add NEVER usually happens on a weekend. Whoop. It doesn't take much to make me happy at work!
Saturday evening we had a family movie night with chips and dips. Nomn. We watched Taken 3, "good luck." I can't watch any of those films without saying good luck in a slightly dodgy accent. A great film and well worth a watch, well who wouldn't watch Liam, he has the most amazing voice.
His hair, however, looked a little suspect. You watch it and see if you don't agree with me?
A bit too groomed for an action movie. Isn't it funny what you notice?
As for Sunday, I enjoyed a lazy morning reading my book, I've now finished the latest Agatha Raisin book and am back to the Outlander series. I love crime novels over any other book but I have to admit I am enjoying the Outlander books, being set up here, knowing the sights, names and area really adds to the read.
Hubby was on shift all weekend so he enjoyed a nice Father's day at work, the boys and I took the dogs to the beach and had a lovely walk and then an ice-cream instead. I know who got the better deal!
The rest of Sunday was taken up with the usual things, getting uniform ready, tea etc.....
On to today and another beautiful summer day here, the sun is beating down, it's going to be a scorcher!
I lie, well, it is the North of Scotland.
A typical summer morning, grey and overcast with a distinct chance of rain. But I did have you going for just a second or two, didn't I?
Lorraine I haven't forgotten about you I just have a couple of urgent orders to finish with being in work extra last week then I will get things sorted for you. I plan on having something to you by the end of the week. x
Today I have another water colouring card for you. This was a card I made for last weeks colour challenge over at The Great Scheme of things. Last weeks colour combination was citrus colours but this week is pastels so why not pop over and join us?
My interpretation of citrus....
First I have stamped a flower from Stampers Anonymous Flower Garden with Archival ink. I have then used my distress inks to watercolours the image; I have used Squeezed lemonade, Mustard seed, Spiced marmalade, Peeled paint and Crushed olive. After allowing the image to dry I layered on corresponding orange card stock. Direct to the card I have then used The crafters workshop stencil Mini chicken wire reverse to create a background using Spiced marmalade. I have then stamped the sentiment on to cream card, again Stampers Anonymous Perspective, coloured with marmalade and layered onto orange card stock before adding to the card. To finish I have added a bow with cream string on the flower. CAS!
Did I mention that I am loving these new SA flower stamps? Mmmm nice.
I'd forgotten how much fun it is to watercolour.
So what is on the cards today?
As I mentioned earlier I have a couple of projects to finish and a few card orders. Then I really must tackle the mountain that is the ironing. Oh the joys!
It is me or when it comes to the housework and ironing, do you feel a bit like a hamster on it's wheel?
Never ending and SO boring!
I hope it isn't just me or I have just gone even further up on the weird scale, LOL.
Before you think I've truly lost my marbles I shall sign off. Work again for me tomorrow and Wednesday, will I be organised with an early post or not? That is the question!
Catch you tomorrow.
