...I am such a slack Alice you know because way back on Jan 1st I was full of "oh I will make loads of cards this year and never be rushing about for a last minute one" Hahaha... that lasted all of a few weeks... and then I decided, for reasons still unknown to me, that I needed to make several hundred tags. Which are nice to make and don't get me wrong, I do love a nice tag sesh... but it hasn't helped the card basket at all.
So... today is Friday which means it is my day for the Bubbly Funk DT. So, I decided to put right the wrongs of the resolution slip up and make a card... then I got so involved I made another one, straight away too... using the same basic stash I used on the first one. To see the other card in full, please CLICK HERE to visit Bubbly Scrumptious (oh how I love that name!)
Anyways... there I was 02.12am and sitting on the edge of the bed feeling ever so grumpy because yet another night was ruined with this no sleep lark... so I did what any normal (humph) crafter would do, I went and made myself a nice cuppa coffee and then went into the Room of Stash. Now, bearing in mind it is the middle of the night and therefore I had to make like a mouse so as not to wake my sleeping beauty, I decided to make "something quiet" I mean, how hard can that be? No thumping and banging about with hammers and Dabbers and stuff... and of course, I have the super silent heat gun from Ranger.
Well, best laid plans of "Hels like a mouse"... all was going swimmingly until the pile of Tim stamps decided to come alive and slide onto the floor... taking several acrylic blocks and a tin of Fragments with them! Noise? Ha! Well, I sat there cringing, shoulders hunched and eyes tight shut, waiting for an appearance of the now not so sleeping beauty... but nay and thrice! It didn't wake him! Phew! Well, I so enjoyed making the first card that I decided to make another. Now, I only ever seem to make square cards, so I grabbed a piece of white card and made up one, my own sizing - similar to that of a tag *just can't get away from them there tags you know* I used the same stash and added a little Glassine flower I made... I cut rough circles out of the Glassine, scrunched them up, snipped into them, coloured with Aged Mahogany and then scrunched and assembled, using a brad to fix the layers together.
Anyways... enough waffling already from me for one day... I have a confession to make... I am a Cherry Addict and I need help! It all started a few weeks ago when Morrison's were selling a punnet for a pound... so I bought a few... and then the local Co-Op is doing three big punnets for a fiver... and last night... I ...erm... ate nearly three whole punnets in one sitting... I only stopped because I was starting to feel a little bilious... these cherries though... they are mahoosive, black and very juicy... and this morning... well, they are doing a revenge dance and... I really must dash...again ROFL Thanks for looking... enjoy the sunny day!!! TTFN
