Good Evening Friends,
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you like what you see and will leave a comment because I really do love to read them! I have been just looking around your blogs, my fellow blog friends and loving everything I see - as always!
We've been out and about visiting Tom's family this morning and then home - hens let out in the garden, Tom out gardening and me in the craft room! Penny seems to be doing fine; she has a return to trip to the vet tomorrow evening but she looks to be healing nicely.
Because of my recent back problem I got really behind with all my craft projects that need completing before we go on holiday (in less than 5 weeks!) and of course, now my mojo has taken a leave of absence. I sat down last night and doodled some Zentangle as that usually works - but it didn't. The other thing that usually reawakens Mr Mojo is making something just for the sake of it, but there's no time for that, so I had to go forit and take one project from my 'to do' book and just get on with it. As a result I've almost finished a Halloween photo frame to give one of my cousins in the US, when we visit. She has a toddler and they love Halloween, so I thought they could put a photo of him in it when the Holiday comes around. I'm afraid this is a tease..I will schedule it to post when we are on holiday!
Today I am posting the DT card I made for Emergency Crafters this month. I don't know what's happening, but the blog hasn't been updated so we've been unable to post, so I'm guessing no challenge this month and as you must all need a break from all the window cards I've been making, I thought there was no harm in posting it!
The theme was set to be summer movie blockbuster, so I used an 8x8 shaped card and inked the fancy top border with perfect medium clear and heat embossed with tinsel gold (back and front). I covered the front of the card with gold mirri card followed by a layer of black. All the images are downloaded from Crafts-u-Print and I typed the greeting myself. I added cosmic twinkles to the front of the card where the stars are in the sky. I also made the little popcorn box and clapperboard gift tag to go with the card.
It was quite a simple set to make when my back was giving me so much pain that I really couldn't take too long about crafting!
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend..back to work for me tomorrow, but Tom also has next Friday off and we are hoping the weather stays good, as we have a tour of Highgrove House Gardens arranged on Friday. We are really looking forward to it as we pass the gates so often when we are heading to Tetbury to shop or wander (we were there Saturday and I have never seen so many tourists!), so it'll be nice to see the garden behind those gates..only downside is that no photos are allowed!
Bye for today,
Love and Hugs,
