Hey everyone, what you been up to this weekend? Today has been lovely but about an hour ago it went black and has been pouring down ever since. We’re going to Zante on Wednesday, it’s a bit of a last minute booking as we weren’t planning on going abroad this year after 2 expensive holidays last year… but we decided to sneak off for a bit of sun while Joe is away! Jess skidded her car into a wall last week during a downpour (about 2 days after we paid it off for her 21st birthday) She’s ok but a bit shaken up so we’re just waiting to hear from the insurance if it’s a write off, we’re really hoping they can repair it as she’s only had it about 3 months. It’s been one thing after another with her this year!
Time for another challenge at Papertake Weekly and this week it’s…
To Die For
…all you need to do is to include a die cut somewhere or you could make your base card from a die
We have a lovely prize up for grabs from Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl
This was a nice easy week for me, I use dies on all my cards...
I used Pastel Dreams papers for the backing layer and then cut the little house out of some scraps – I punched a heart in the centre and then stuck it on with foam pads. The sentiment is done on the computer and the clouds are memory Box (so useful, I use these cloud dies a lot)
I put the line of stamped hearts on and then thought I’d made a mistake but it was too late, maybe it didn’t need them?
Last thing is to go around the edges with some stickles.
You can see what the DT have done this week and find all the details for the challenge on the Papertake Weekly blog
Let me know what you think, your comments are always welcome and I’m hoping to try and visit all your blogs while I’m away and have some time to myself.
My Slimming World journey is going quite well so far, week 1 was 4lb off and another 4lb week 2 so I was pleased with that. I’m just mad with myself for not starting sooner, I was trying on some holiday clothes today and they are a bit snug for comfort! I’ll have to make do though because I’m not buying any more just for one week when it will be another year before they come out again!
Enjoy your Sunday evening crafters
