Good morning, I hope you are well today?
I am working today and tomorrow so I've been organised writing this yesterday.
I'm starting with a question today.
Is it just me or do sometimes you think, "mmmm I just fancy a ............"
This happened to me on Sunday, I really just fancied a scone. Now I used to make scones a lot but just lately it is usually my kids asking for cheese scones. Sunday I had a hankering for a fruit scone and having had my husbands friend come over asking if I'd baked and then my eldest boy asking "Mum are you baking today?"
I thought I better get my apron on.
I do like butter on a scone but as hubby is from Devon I do occasionally push the boat out and have homemade raspberry jam and cream.
There's no wonder I don't lose weight.
Why can't cakes, scones and biscuits be diet food, I'd be so skinny!
Seriously I really must get back on track before the summer months I just don't seem to have the enthusiasm to be good at this time of year.
Do you find that too?
Back to card making and one of my recent card orders for a friend was for a new home card. This wasn't a normal new home card because the recipients have just moved into an old Station house, I was asked to include this within the theme.
This is what I came up with.
The wee hoose is a stamp by Hero arts and I've paper pieced it with scraps of paper. The railway line is some American clip art I've had for a long time which I have decoupaged to make it 3D. The printing has been done on the computer then I have layered it on coordinating card stock. The card is A5, I haven't made many this size for a while as most people normal ask for square cards now.
Do you have a favourite size of card you like to work with?
That's all from me today, I am hoping to get a couple more cards made this evening then I might settle down with some more crocheting. Enjoy your Tuesday, more from me tomorrow.
