Good morning friends.
So NOVEMBER! how did we get here? and so quickly!!
I hope your weekend has got off to a good start and you have something nice planned.....maybe a bonfire party and a few fireworks, of maybe a cosy night in after a busy day shopping...or in the crafty zone?
For us it's a nice meal out with my eldest son and partner... a good chat and catch up as they lead such busy lives, we don't get together often enough.
On to my card...
It's another bit of recycling/up-cycling and a bit of stamping too.
Do you remember the robin card here I shared with you? Well I cut them with the outer die from the frame of three which left me with the aperture in this card...... and then I made an inky background, stamped my trees in Smokey Grey Versafine, and added the proverbial glamour dust! popped it behind the aperture...another card for the stash!
and a close up to show the sparkle....
I tried to do my background with brushes and distress inks...not very successfully I have to say...definitely need more practice with the brushes.
I still haven't found the time to play with my new oxides.....no space on my desk to get them out either! I am so cluttered at the moment...the floor is covered, I keep falling over things and all my Christmas stash is on the guest bed in the spare room...good job no-one is coming to stay! I just have not got enough space!!!!!! A big sort out is looming in the New Year I think. I seem to find it so hard to part with things, even the smallest snippet of card, but I feel my clutter is holding me back...feng shui and all that.
Thank you for popping in,please do leave me a comment so I know you have been...I love to read them.....I know my creations are not mind blowing but at least I am using up some stuff...a small indent in the huge pile....doesn't make me anymore space though!
Enjoy your weekend and take care with those fireworks please.
