Enjoy Life's Moments

Today has been a very busy crafting day, I have made this card using a tag which I have inked with Distress Stains, Dried Marigold and Tumbled Glass.  I have stamped with Craftwork Cards stamp set Graceful Grasses and Birdcages, a set which I love using.  I have used some Core'dinations card which I have embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and sanded, I have inked the edge with Distress ink pad, Frayed Burlap.  I used some BoBunny Double Dots in orange as a background paper and added a sentiment, gems and a birdcage charm to complete the card.  I have also done some sample cards for work using Wellington the Bear from Docrafts and Lucy Cromwells (Papermania) pretty decoupage but not had chance to take pics yet.

Earlier this morning I had to go into town to get Maisie some food from the local pet shop, she is on a special diet as she can't tolerate wheat and is now on a 'raw' food diet which I must say looks disgusting but Maisie is loving it and it seems to be agreeing with her and even though she has only been on it for just over 2 weeks she seems to be looking really healthy.  Anyway, I digress! :)  I happened to pop into one of my favourite shops in Skipton just to have a quick look round and found the most adorable storage jars and some very pretty sticky tape...Well I just had to have them...I needed them ;)  So here they are, wish I had bought a couple more jars now so it may require another visit very soon :)

Off to see my brother now as it's his birthday today so wishing you all a lovely evening.

  2. Thanks Susan, I am enjoying a little bit of distressing now, not my usual thing but as long as it's not too 'grungy' I am happy :)

    Kevin and Amy are well thanks, Amy has been busy with her course work and she has now managed to get a place performing in the opening ceremony of the Paralympics so will be starting rehearsals soon, she has also been making costumes for a musical performance called 'Spring Awakening' at the Bridewell Theatre, London. Not sure when we will see her this summer as she will be very busy but hoping she can get home for a week or two before the start of her final year.

    Enjoy your weekend with Sara.
