Good Morning Ladies,
Yay it's Friday!! I am ready for the weekend I can tell you, this week has been a long one!
Well everyone seems to be going Corona Virus crazy, we have always had Hand Soap in all three bathrooms and the kitchen and utility room, two of them are very low but could we buy any hand soap anywhere, the answer is NO! I have actually seen a bottle of Care hand soap (normally around £1.00 - £1.50) On Amazon they are going for £35 a bottle, can you actually believe that?!
So I had to go to the under sink cupboard and get my Wrights Coal Tar soap out, oh boy do I love the smell, it just smells proper clean!!
I know that we have to think about contingency plans etc but people seem to be going bonkers! Trolley's piled high with Bread, eggs and loo rolls! Have any of you started to stockpile ??
Your Next Challenge
Michele kindly sent me a list of ideas for our weekly challenges and this weeks challenge is one of them.
I would like you to make a Card ..…..With NO DIES, anything else is fine just no die cutting at all, you can use trimmers, guillotines etc. So you can still do your matting and layering.
A couple of years ago I could never have even thought about setting this challenge as most of us used almost exclusively Dies to create all elements of our cards, including the sentiment.
My card was made using my new Hero Arts Leafy Vine Stamp, I took a piece of Old Olive card, dusted with Anti-Static bag and then stamped the image in White Ink and then added white embossing powder and heat set.
I then stamped the sentiment, (I love that font) onto a separate piece of card and cut it with my trimmer and created a narrow white mat to lift it from the background a little.
I finished the card by wrapping around a piece of white satin ribbon and then placing the sentiment on foam pads on top.of the ribbon.
I think it looks really 'fresh' , I hope you like it too.
I will add some more cards to the blog tomorrow to give you all some inspiration.
I hope that you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all,
