Good Morning Ladies,
I hope you all managed to get some sleep last night, it was very warm here. We have a busy couple of days here, yesterday car was serviced (£400 🥵) and today 2 new tyres (£300) !! The girls and I have haircut today too. There is something else toobut without my list at hand I have no idea what! 🙄 Rhe trouble is everything is so much harder in this heat.
I did manage 3 cards yesterday which I was pleased about, the craft room /Office was do hot and humid though, I had to keep taking a break.
Janet I am so pleased to hear that yout journey was smooth and straightforward (apart from heat), Air con is a life saver but it makes me really congested after a while so we just have it on to cool the car down and then switch it off. I imagine you both needed a day of rest, enjoy your shopping, I love browsing around the French Supermarkets there is so much choice and everything seems so much fresher than ours. Relax and enjoy your break my lovely XXX
Karen, the girls really love Paella and the area we go to grows its own Paella Rice, so we usually go and get some lovely fresh Mussels & Langostines and make our own with herbs and spices. So I always need to measure for stock etc, I measure my rice in jug too, it is a large jug so also doubles as the Sangria jug!!! We do eat at mobile more than we eat out, mostly because Paul prefers to eat there were he is relaxed, plus we couldn't afford to eat out every night. We had a lot of salads with lovely fresh baked bread, meals are simple and cooked mostly outside....
Today's card I made with one of my Distress Oxide blended backgrounds, after blending I placed the piece into the embossing folder and ran it through machine, after making sure if was dry I took a sanding block and gently sanded the raised areas lightly to reveal the white core and add some detail to the background, I added tiny diamantés to the flower centre and added a die cut sentiment to finish. I do love the colours on this one.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love & Hugs to all,
