Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, does anyone remember what the sun looks like? with only 3 days left to then end of this month I think we can officially July a 'Wash Out' Janet ,I think that your St Swithen's day prediction wasn't far off!! I think it is supposed to brighten up by the end of the week. That beautiful weather we had in April and May seem a distant memory.
We had the Gas Engineer come yesterday to Service the Aga and Boiler, he kept apologising for having to wear a mask and normally he would have had a cuppa and a biscuit but none of that was allowed, you can no longer sign their report either, I did offer to use my own pen but he said no they have changed their protocols, I wonder if this is the new 'Normal'!
Today's card is one of Our Karen's, a beautiful 'Thank You' card made using Tracy Evan's stamps,
Karen used Glossy Photo Card, which she coloured with 'Pixie Powders, she then used the Lots of Dots Aall & Create Stencil with White Gesso which gives lovely texture as well as interest, the main image is Tracy Evan's Fritilleria stamp, the extra detail around the edges in a lovely blue shade is the 'Heartfelt' stamp, Karen has stamped the sentiment on white card and then done a great little trick which is to draw around your sentiment piece with a water soluble pencil and then blend it out a bit, it gives the look of an added mat. Karen used the same colour to colour the flower. A traditional Tracy finish is to flick a white Posca/chalk pen over the piece to add some white splats. The final textural touch was stamping the word 'Art' onto a piece of Muslin' and frayed it around the edges.
I absolutely love this card Karen, it's a completely new style to both of us but you have done an amazing job, I absolutely love this card XXX
Well it's Haircut day today, I told the girls that we should all do a 'before and after', mind you the girls both have really long hair so they won't see much difference. I on the other hand must have an extra 4 inches at least, although my is really falling out a lot lately, I mean like my pillow is covered in hair in the morning and loads in the towel when I wash it too, it concerned me with all my other issues combined, the last time I mentioned it to our Hairdresser she wasn't too concerned.
I hope that you all have a lovely day my lovelies,
Love and hugs to all of you,
