I have to say we're still waiting for some warm weather up here in the North of Scotland, we've had one good week so far this break. It's been so lovely the last couple of days we've even put the heating back on in the evening, in August!
What's that all about?
Today it's my turn for a post over at The Great Scheme of things, with my colour combo, a little black and white number. The blog hasn't been as busy as we would like so we are trying the Facebook page instead. If you are looking for a weekly colour combo challenge just for fun why not pop along and join us?
Here is my version.
For my card I have cut a 6" card and then matte and layered with black then white pearlescent card, the white embossed with a A4 folder called Garden lattice. I have then cut Spellbinder dies Beaded ovals, labels 30,21 and 14, layering together with 3D foam. The sentiment added before layering and is from It's all in the words by Marion Emberson. I have then added a bow in black satin and some small black gems to finish.
Yesterday I actually decided to tidy my craft room (CR) as it was a bit like this.....
You know that feeling......
Losing something I NEED is always the case in my craft room. Still I have become very good at shaking it off and using something else instead but it can get a tad annoying.
I have to say you'd probably think it is still a bit of a mess or cluttered, it is but now I have two desks and a floor. The simple things make a crafty girl very happy. Maybe my mojo might now pop out for a quick airing too. I certainly found a few lovelies I'd forgotten I'd bought, the best thing about tidying a CR, I was very good and put them to one side too instead of getting distracted.
That's all from me today, enjoy the start of another week. I'm am starting to get my "going back to school" head on this week so may not be around as much. For once I am going to try and be organised and get the kids kitted out sooner rather than later.
Going shopping with boys is as nasty for Mum as it is for the boys!
Both of mine hate clothes shopping so it could take some time. Yaah!
Enjoy the rest of your Monday and happy crafting.
