Morning all hope today finds you all fit and well and lucky enough to be enjoying dry and pleasant seasonal weather.I feel like I have been away for ages although it's only just over a week.
I should explain, I can't say I have been lucky enough to have been on holiday but have been in hospital for major surgery, the whys and what fors aren't important but I was so pleased to come home on sunday evening and even happier and more comfortable to have my stitches out on wednesday, but my abdomen, my son describes as a neon light display with patches of deep purple and I feel like I've been used as a football for an international final. I keep being told I am doing really well but I am so bored and so not into daytime telly.
I would love to utilise all this time for crafting, but I think I left my creative side in the anaesthetic room, though I have tried to play and can't believe how long it has taken me. I think the main problem is, if I sit for a while I get back ache and keep having to get up and walk around, so there is little time to get creativity flowing. I did make quite a few things including some DT projects before I went into hospital and they are all scheduled, but the others I might be lucky to find a few challenges for too.
Told you, can't sit still for long.
I also got some new country cousin stamps and decided to enter the sugar bowl challenge. I have to say I was stumped as to what sentiment to add so for now just added a thankyou, I went for a vintage look by just stamping in brown ink on cream card and spot colouring. I used mica powders from the stampman dusted over versamark for the background and just added ribbon and twine and a bit of matt gold embossed card for mounting. These images are so detailed you don't need to be elaborate.
Hope you like it and that it means my crafty juices are returning too.I would also like to enter it for the following challenges:-
The sugar bowl-sketch,optional one for the boys
Crafty purple frog-anything goes
My next couple of posts will doubtless be projects I made earlier and didn't get around to posting so please bear with me, I'm really hoping I get back in the swing of things soon and can get back to my dt duties of visiting all the fab inspiring entries for our challenges.
Don't forget over at creative craft challenges our next challenge will be celebrating our first anniversarry and I can only say I wish I could enter as we have such a large and varied selection of prizes up for grabs it's definitely not one to miss.
