Well the drama continues, we have a friend that works in a supermarket in the town we used to live in and she messaged yesterday to say that people's behaviour had reached an all time low, they have had people fighting at the checkout, people stealing things from other people's trolleys, people shouting at others as they think that they have bought too much (even though it was people doing a normal weekly shop).
Paul went to shops to try and get some meat today and there was less than yesterday, so it appears people are getting worse at stockpiling than before, even deodorant and shampoo/shower gel shelves were empty and I will add that our Asda is a Walmart Superstore, it has a bakery that I thought would be working around the clock but there was not a baker to be seen. All very strange.
Paul is now working at the weekend as things get even busier for them, the problem with that is that when you end up being over worked you become exhausted and more prone to picking up bugs and viruses.
Your Next Challenge
For your next Challenge I would like you to use One Stamp or One Die to make two different cards.
For example I used the Hero Arts Leafy Swirls Stamp to create one card using White Embossing powder on Green Card base for one example.
The other card I made yesterday using the same Stamp but this time I stamped with Versamark ink and applied something called 'Mica Boss' powder, I bought it well over 7/8 years ago when Ali Reeve used to do her messy crafting show on Create & Craft, I think her company came up with the product, it is a fine powder that looks like Embossing Powder, you use it with any 'Sticky' ink (versamark, perfect mediom etc) you then Heat set but only until the powder just turns clear, it's quite easy to overheat, Once all the powder is melted I added a generous covering of Indigo Blu Gilding Flakes, this particular tub had Greens/Browns and Gold mixed it, you can just make out the colours on the card, I then using a soft scrubbing brush to remove any excess gilding flakes and then I burnished over the flakes with a sponge. I was pleasantly surprised that it worked.
I mounted the card front onto a narrow mat of Gold Sparkle card and then onto a cream card base, I added a piece of Very Vanilla to the base card and mounted everything together, winding a piece of Very Vanilla Gold Edged ribbon around one side of the card and securing at the back. I tied a Bow at the top of the ribbon added the sentiment Tag underneath them.I finished the bow with a SU Metal flower Embellishment in the centre.
I hope that you like it Ladies,
I hope that you all have the best weekend possible,
Love and hugs to all of you,
