Good Afternoon Everyone, and I hope all is well with you and that you have great plans for the weekend, yes that's another almost upon us.
Thank you all so much for your very kind comments on my last card, I appreciate every one of them.
We had a hectic time in London, but I have to say that everyone we asked help of couldn't have been more helpful, a better experience from years ago.
We didn't get all the things done that Alistair planned, but we enjoyed the exhibition and meeting up with friends and I got to meet David Starkey(the historian that presents all those programmes about the Tudors) and Philip Mould who present an art programme with Fiona Bruce, he is very suave and more handsome in real life.
However, we arrived back late last night and are whacked, so it's an easy day today.
It's time for another Friday Oldie;
A little card made with a Little Claire stamp and coloured with Promarkers.
Friday Oldie was started by Erika of Snappy Crafts and it's all about sharing a handmade project that you've made earlier on in your crafting career. It's just for fun so why don't you join in and share an Oldie.
I've a couple of photos to show you now of why we were in London;
The front cover of Peter's catalogue of his paintings,
And the Artist himself. This is an amazing portrait of Peter, It's a huge picture and it's called Dressing Up for Mam and Dad. All the photographs inside the coat are ones Peter found when his dad died the other year and they are all when from when he was in the war and was writing back and forth to Peter's mum. I know you can't get a feel for it here, but to see it for real bring up such a swell of emotion that I get goosebumps.
The Exhibition was making a statement about what is taken for art nowadays, the art work will not be every ones cup of tea, but, it's hitting out at the contemporary art establishment and the nonsense that wins the Turner prize.
I've scrolling through your blogs and seeing some fabulous makes, but I hope you will forgive me for not commenting this time around, I think when you miss so many days it's too hard to catch up.
Take care everyone and see you soon,
