Good morning and how are you today?
I have my widow Twanky head on today as I have a day off. The sun is out and the sky is blue, you know how the song goes!
So I am washing everything in sight. All the beds stripped, clothing bins emptied and looking forwards to a huge ironing pile later in the week, not.
The weather since the children started the new term has been really nice, not as hot as some have had south, let's face it, dry and sunny is more than enough.
It is half term for us in a couple of weeks, do you think this weather will hold?!
Here's hoping it does. I already know the answer to the question but I am ever hopeful that we will get some good weather.
Back to crafting and the only card making I seem to be getting time for just now is cards that friends have asked me to make for them. This is another one today. I was asked for a card for a couple who having gone on holiday to Paris, came back engaged. The typing is in the local lingo if you are wondering why it is written as it is.
The Paris stamp is by Tim Holtz French Market which I have embossed in black before matting and layering on black using a Spellbinder fancy tag cut in half top and bottom, to give it a Parisian theme.
I have added a couple of gems to the tag, then a tartan bow (Tying in the Scottish connection) with a wee engagement ring attached.
In the local village Hopeman is spelt Houpman as that is how it is pronounced, a loon is a boy/man and a quine is a girl/woman. Just in case you were wondering!
What are your plans for the rest of the day?
I have lots of housework to be doing but I also had a phone call last night asking for some of my pin cards. Can you tell what I will be doing first?
Mmmmm you know me so well. :)
Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday and I'm away now for a wee catch up with you all. Happy crafting!
