Oh I know we say it a lot on Wednesdays, but only because it's true..the last week has just disappeared. And what have I to show for it? Ah well, in craft terms, not a lot. Although the two very similar cards you see here are the result of a very long time spent at my desk, mostly fiddling about. The stamp is from a set (of course) by Stampin'Up!. There are three outline sketch florals and three semi solid 'fillers' for adding colour to the blooms. I say semi-solid because they aren't solid, slightly grained to give a watercolour effect. As always with SU! stamps, for the price, I get cross that I have to mount and index them myself. And then for this set...I had to dig out my stamp positioning tool. It was a dig too, and that's why I've had the set for nearly a month without producing anything worth showing. Still, now I've been through the last box in the room of shame (in your house it's called the spare room), I've cleared some more junk, found my two re-positioners, put one up for sale and made these cards. Feels like a result huh! It most certainly does, although if you could see my desk, you'd think I'd made enough cards to re-stock a shop!
Turns out the little deckchair (Bookchair, Trademark) that I've taken unused from Miss Dunnit's room to use for my ipad stand is doing a good job too - whenever you see jaunty canvas striping, you'll know I wasn't even energetic enough to get off my butt and take a photo away from my desk.
You will probably notice too that I've re-decorated the blog again. Had to. The 'Queen of Trends' and the zebra stripe edges was doing my head in, please don't ask why I liked it only a month ago and now I don't - I'm a very complicated person you know.
Have a lovely weekend.
