Good Morning Everyone, and already it's shaping up to be another scorcher. I hope you are well and having good weather too.
Thank you all for the lovely comments on my Biker card, I do appreciate them and the time you all spend visiting me as we are all busy. I constantly wonder how I ever managed to go to work, especially when I was full time and do all the other things life demands and still find time to do the nice things in life. I do know I was running on empty most of the time in the latter years. However one of the great things about retirement, for me anyway, is that I no longer feel guilty about being busy doing nothing, that's taken me a wee while to learn how to do. I've had to learn how to go more slowly too, I'm lucky I can do that now.
Anyway, I've go my third 60th card, and this is for a friend's brother, whom we don't know all that well, so it was just a case of choosing something I thought a man would like, her it is;
Seashore Images from Chocolate Baroque, a truly lovely set of stamps, and this time I've used Starlight Paints as watercolours, they are from Imagination Crafts. The birds are from Inkylicious. I've mounted the stamped image on to card painted with black Starlights then on to a background using a stencil from MFT, it's a sun ray and coloured with Sparkle Medium. Centura Pearl card in Gold.
It does look so much brighter in real life, I don't know what I do to wash out the colour when I photograph my cards. Anyhow, Alistair said he would love it, so hopefully Eddie will too.
Nothing much on the cards today no pun intended.... over to see to Milo later in the afternoon, a wee walk and some play, he gives me such a welcome, such a darling.
Trying to get clothes washed and ironed for going off for a few days holiday next week, Shetland Isles, really looking forward to it, always wanted to go and also hoping to get to Fair Isle. Of course it's the knitting that's the pull for me, no mountains for Alistair though, but he plans to hire a bike and go round the Island.
So that's me for today, have a good one yourself and see you soon,
