Good Morning Friends!
Well today is my last day at work of three whole weeks, can you believe it? I can't! at the end of the week we will be boarding that plane and flying across the Atlantic and the USA to San Francisco. I have been in touch with my cousins this week and we are all so excited.
I'm pleased to report that my second session with the sports therapist for my back was fabulous, oh how I wish that a doctor had pointed me in this direction years ago! I'm never going to be pain free all the time, but right at this moment I am which is totally new for me! Finding Hayley, was wonderful and the added bonus is that she lives and practices virtually next door!
Today's card is my Sunday Stampers offering for this week -Hels set the theme of Birds, which I think actually has to be my favourite subject for cards and art, so i have lots of stamps to fit this theme.
This is a Crafty Individuals stamp of an arty bird image with a musical background. I stamped it with black Perfect Medium and heat embossed with clear powder, then I inked with vintage photo. I embossed a background using the same mask as for our classes last week for the base layer of the card and inked with Antique Linen. I also die cut a leaf using craft foil. I think this might look good with the flake and acetate so will try it when I get back.
To finish this pretty simple little card I matted and layered the image on to mat gold and black card.
I'll be back tomorrow and most of this week and whilst I'm away I have lots of scheduled posts including all the presents I made to take away with us, so do keep stopping by...I'll be updating with any craft observations and photos too, - and checking in on you all wherever free wi-fi allows too!
Hels, I won't be able to take part for the next few weeks as we'll be on our travels...I have those Michaels vouchers too!
Love and Hugs,
