Up nearly all night with toothache last night (why is it
always worse at night?), including the extra hour!! Looks
like I will be paying an expensive visit to the dentist this week.
Great result at football yesterday though and a really exciting game! (4-2 to Leeds - YAY!)
Went to church this morning to celebrate some very good friends' Ruby Wedding Anniversary, and yes, I did make a card for them but did I photograph it??? NO!!!!
Anyway, they very kindly invited me to Sunday lunch so I am now totally pigged out. I did venture to the Papercraft show which was advertised at the South Leeds Stadium, only to be told it had been cancelled! So I, and apparently dozens of other people, had turned up today and were disappointed :-( If anyone reading this was planning to go to the midweek one that has been cancelled too! Having an hour or two to myself I decided some retail therapy was in order - just not crafty shopping, but shopping all the same :-)
I just made these cards, the first one using good old BG
and my favourite paper tearing technique to create the heart frame (actually it's left over from the Christmas card below!). The silver heart used to be a bauble, I added ribbon, brads, metal and faux stitching.
The Christmas stamp also has a torn frame with ''that Santa stamp'' embosseed in silver and lightly chalked in blue. The snowflakes are stamped and embossed in white as is the edge of the frame.
Back to school for me tomorrow - eight long weeks until Christmas!
