Good Friday Morning Ladies,
The end of another week, the girls said last night at dinner that it was the Year 11's last day of school today, it doesn't seem a month ago that is as them finishing for study leave!
They are struggling at the moment as they have to choose a placement for Work Experience, the only problem is that neither of them knows what they want to do after their A levels so choosing a placement for experience is almost impossible. Sophie thought that she could have her work experience with the Cotswold Crafter!!
I told her that I didn't think it worked like that but I gave her 10/10 for trying! She was very convincing, saying that she could learn about blogging etc until I pointed out that she could probably teach me more than I could teach her, I already rely on her to sort out my YouTube videos etc.
Lucy is kind of leaning towards Forensic science type work, but she isn't 100% sure and I am pretty sure she wouldn't get any work experience in that field anyway. The school insist that they have to organise this work experience themselves, I have told her to go to the Careers Advisor for some advice.
There is never a dull evening around the Dinner Table in our house!
Now onto today's card, I took a sheet of A4 white card and just randomly stamped around the card with the Blooms & Wishes Stamp set, using the New In-Colours :
Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist & Fresh Fig.
I then stamped the Sentiment into the centre, mounted this piece onto a piece of Tranquil Tide card and then onto card base. I really enjoy making my own Decorative Papers, its quite therapeutic and the time just flies by!
I hope you like the card xx
Can I ask if any of you that went to Ally Pally bought packs of card from Anna Marie stand, I bought about 7 packs in all, I am so disappointed though as when you crease them to create the card they are so 'off' that I have had to cut a good centimetre off both ends and the side, which is really frustrating as they are then no longer 5x7 inch
and don't fit neatly into the matching envelopes. I have tried so many different ways to fold them but with little success. Margaret I know you bought some, are yours ok??
If any of you have any Craft queries etc, feel free to bring them up.
Now I want to run a Challenge idea by you all, I was thinking about either the suggesting that you could Use a 'Christmas Die/Stamp' to make a NON Christmas card OR making a Christmas card WITHOUT using a 'Christmas Die/Stamp' . Which would you prefer???
I was hoping that we were going to have heavy rain storm yesterday, the sky went so dark, but a few spots and it was over, Indo feel sorry for all of the Farmers, you can see that the Crops are way behind in development, I can feel a price hike coming on!
It's probably saving the rain for the school holidays!
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and hugs
