Monday, 6 December 2010

Saturday: crop, followed by proper cooked supper, parental taxi service, a load of washing and the beginnings of an idea for a card that's been in my head. Sunday, clean kitchen properly, throw hoover round downstairs, finish card, start another, two hours Christmas shopping, parental taxi service and work on new cards. Monday, if you could see the pile of clothes waiting to be ironed you truly would feel two things - sorry for me, and shock at my laziness. But off to work anyway, via short parental taxi service job and rush around Sainsbury's.Honest It's not that I think I'm lazy, but please can I have my weekend again.



Anyhoo, here's the couple of the cards that were in the secret DT place (my head!), both using digi stamps from Amber Ink - these are ribbons from the Perfect Package set. Coloured with Twinkling H20s again - now I've cracked the box open again, I can't stop using them. And they always remind me of my good friend the Enthusiastic Educator. Honestly, these little pots of paint are genius in her hands.

So how was Monday for you? - what are you planning in this second week of December - anyone ready to write Christmas cards yet? Second thoughts, don't tell me!

Gorgeous cards Julia. Maybe I shouldn't say it but I had no Twiglet here today for fun and laughter so I set to and I've done most of my Christmas cards :-) She plans to join me tomorrow so the rest may have to wait a while :-)

Evening Julia,Love your cards the colours of your ribbons now coloured are really gorgeous, my granddaughter would love them. My granddaughter Francesca loves H20's she's now 13 and has been using mine for about 3 years and they are still going. I will see her tomorrow and she can start colouring her ribbons.- Instead of using all mine! Have fun. Jo.xxx

Ah yes twinkling H2o's the risk averse persons answer to glitter,

I need all week to be a week end - some one keeps stealing my time...and giving it to my Kids,

think I might just give up on the idea of sleep 'till next year?

Another subtle card Julia! Those ribbons must have been tricky to cut out. Not tried sparking H2O's before, but maybe I need to....

My Monday has been somewhat less hectic - but then I am stuck at home with vertigo, how ridiculous is that?!!

Pam said...

How DID you cut those out? You must have a secret! You are such the clever one and to think you did that w/single repeat digi images! So reminds me of Hawaiian leis @ graduation time and in the bottom one they would intertwine money -notice I say "they"!

Sounds like your week was as hectic as mine. I feel like you and want my weekend back. But that isn't going to happen for either of us, I fear.

I'm having trouble understanding digital stamping. It seems like one of those oxymorons. But the cards are really pretty and I LOVE H2Os, too!

You are one creative torch bearer! What fun!!!

Amberbop said...

This is so cool. I love the little way the little ribbions overlap and make a totally new design! You are so cunning.

Alisonw30 said...

Ha ha, sounds like one of my weekends! Lovely colours on the cards x

Angela said...

Very pretty - and what a cool idea!

Neet said...

Who is the Enthusastic Educator please? I love my Twinkling H20's and am always looking for new ways to use them.

Great ideas from you and love the colours.

Hi Julia
The purple and green look so well together... quite a clever combination and therefore two very pretty cards.
