Gooodly Morning Stampers and a very happy, sunny (yay!) Sunday to you all. Many thanks for all the gorgeous entries for last weeks challenge and welcome to the new peeps joining in... tis great to have you on board! This week the theme is chosen purely because I made something yesterday and used a word... and the song title popped into my head and has been driving me 'round the bend... so I thought I would share with you (teeeheee) So, without further ado... the theme is.... HOME. To join in is simples: make a little something - it can be anything you fancy. Add in the theme AND some stamping (you needs to add stamping in) and then pop back here, leave a comment for me with a link to the place you are showing your entry. If you haven't got a blog/web-photo-hosty thingy, you can also join in via Facebook (simply tag me in your post) or you can pop and email over to me with a photo attached. The theme will run until 21:00 Saturday 6th July 2013.
My entry this week is a Burlap Panel - uh-oh... I am addicted to these... fact! What is so special? Well, it is a sturdy board underneath for a start off so applying the paints and inks is a doddle... and the burlap (I know, we Brits call it Hessian but...) well, it is chunky and textural (is that a word I wonder?) and take the Distress Paints perfectly... and this one is the 4 x 6 size so it is perfect for a little piece of wall art!
What a week it has been! I think this is the first week in donkey's yonks since I didn't blog at least five out of seven.... all due to me getting a bit jaded and not having energy and all that for making stuff (I did start to suffer withdrawal symptoms tho) One thing I noticed after a couple of days away from the Desk of Ink is how dry my hands are! I kept applying handcream and yep, an hour later, they are all dry and papery again. Yak! So, I have this idea. Because I wasn't using inks and paints and copious amounts of babywipes, I reckon my poor paws actually need the ink and the paint and babywipes to stay nice and soft! So.... the theory is that crafting is goodly for your skin now... so...erm... I am away to do some more!
But, before I go... last night we were sitting watching 24 Hours in A&E (compelling viewing) that we had taped (oh, dear, how old am I? I meant Sky +'d) and as the 24 hours unfolded, a patient was being brought in by the HEMS... so, cut to shot of helicopter landing... and up pipes Grim "blimey, you can tell you weren't flying that one...." Cheek of it! I have to admit that it did make me laugh, a little bit, not a lot because then I would be kind of admitting just how stoopid I am but... all the same.
Tis a lovely day here today and my head is telling me to get outside and do some stuff in the garden (ok, reading, lounging, snoozling) cos the rain will probably be here tomorrow... and my heart is saying "get inky...." Tis like a little whispering voice that "get inky...." LOL Right, I shall away, as ever, thanks for looking and have a fabby day! TTFN
