Morning everyone! Yes I have been rubbish with my blogging again!
On the plus side, the man came out to fix the leak, well at least we think it is now fixed! We haven't had anymore major problems and we have had some rain so hopefully this is now sorted. We do have some decorating to do but we are having some help with that too once everything has dried out.
The insurance paid out on the TV (yay!), however because of the excess and depreciation we get less than £200, It's not ideal but it is better than us having to find all the money for a brand new TV so it should be on it's way to us today!
We also had to visit High schools yesterday eve. I've just packed one off to high school this year and now my next one is ready to go next year! I have also been up to my eyes in homework. It really is such a struggle trying to help with English presentations, history posters, french pronunciations, geography graphs and Decimal multiplications for high school along with times table practice and writing in specific genres for future SATs and then on top of that trying to help my youngest to read, learn basic maths and writing skills. Honestly sometimes I feel like I home school!
Phew! Enough with all that it is time to show a card. This was a commission but my favourite type, a female birthday card and no special requests leaving me free to roam my creativity!
I have combined my DT work for Creative Inspirations (a sketch this time) and Divas by Design which is to use texture..
I have used Pion papers along with cheesecloth and a doily. My lace and seam binding is Wild Orchids. My frame is kaiserkraft, ticket Tim Holtz, butterflies little snippets, sentiment is SU and my flowers are a combination of Wild Orchids and Kort & Godt.
My fabulous image is from the incredibly talented Rick St Dennis, she is such fun and a joy to colour. I have used prisma pencils and have edged in antique linen DI. I have also stamped some kaiserkraft postage marks in DI at the edge but these are very subtle. I have also machine stitched all the edges.
Over at CI this wk we have a stunning prize on offer donated by Nat and at Divas we are so lucky to be sponsored by the brilliant Joanna Sheen.
I would like to enter this into...
Thanks for coming by again, I will try and visit more of you this week!
