Hello Crafty Folk, who are you this Sunday, hopefully well, but if not sending out kind thoughts for a speedy recovery.
Thank you to everyone who kindly left a comment on my last post, I do appreciate each and every one of them.
It's been a beautiful day up here in Inverness, have to say September has been on the whole a super month. Got the washing out and it's all dry, thankfully not too much ironing in the bundle.
Alistair is preparing yet again for another canoe trip, so all quiet on the Northern Front from tomorrow. I have a few plans of my own. The Multi-cultural group I've started to go to is having their AGM on Wednesday and are having a bit of a do afterwards, so we have been asked to bring along some finger food. Now I could have been on a sticky wicket here had I not asked if it had to be home cooked. The answer was no, but just to make sure it was Halal food, "crivens help-ma-bob", never gave that a thought, I could have put my size 3s right in it by taking along something like sausage rolls. Now why did I not think about this as most of the ladies are Muslim. So I've been on the the Halal recipe sites, and might manage to do something, if not, I've checked out M&S and they might have to come to the rescue with some vegetarian goodies. There will be some fab food though.
My card today is another made with Chocolate Baroque stamps;
Using the new AYOS stamp; Seed heads and butterflies from the Honeysuckle Butterfly stamp set for embellishments and seeds from Seasonal Fragments on the background. The main topper and background have been stamped with Versamark and embossed with WOW Embossing Powders in Two Tone Copper, Gold and Red. The butterflies have been coloured with Creative Expressions Metallic Watercolour Paints, which I love and also used them to give the background card a colour wash. I've also used a dark red shimmery card. No sentiment as yet.
I wanted an Autumnal look , although I'm not sure if butterflies are still around in Autumn.
Well I've had rugby until it's been coming out of my ears today, only consolation is that Scotland won, I've been promised Downtown later though.
That's all from me for the moment, so I'll say cheerio and see you soon,
