Well hello again deskers, how the devil are you? That week went super fast!!
I'm late on parade today - never got around to posting yesterday afternoon, and this morning I have been out for my morning walk before switching on the pc. I'm challenging myself to walk 10,000 steps before 10.00 am. 10B410 I'm calling it. I'm telling you because if I never mention it again you might call me on it. This is Day 6. I think it's doing me some good, heaven knows I needed to do something before my joints seized up completely. Well, I now only feel about 87, whereas back at the beginning of March I would have cheerfully accepted an estimate of 103.
Anyhoo here's my desk this week:-
A lonely commission on the right hand corner awaiting a final instruction on the wording before sticking. I do hate when this happens, I don't like this colour choice, there's been too much dithering, and I want it off my desk. And it's a wedding card, and it makes me realise I have yet to make a card for my son's wedding in just over 3 weeks time. Any suggestions for a vaguely LOTR themed wedding card gratefully received!
I have a few cat lover birthdays coming up and as none of them know each other I thought I would stamp this NBU stamp and batch make. I'll do a couple for my stash too while it's out. The stamp is so nice it looks great just monochrome but I'll ring the changes a bit - I'm currently stamping on to some gelli print. You can also see my homemade stamping platform using a CD case!! I have lots of them 'cos I made a bunch up to use in class when we were doing rotating/wreath stamping so we weren't all waiting for the same one. They work well but obviously you are limited in size. TBH I tried this stamp in my WRMK platform and a part of it just wouldn't stamp. I swapped to the CD one to check if it was the stamp (think it might have come from China, oops....). Absolutely perfect first time. So....... just shows brands aren't always the best.The garden is taking up a lot of time at the mo (TBH I'm sitting mostly, reading not doing) and looking lovely. The tulips I planted in November are paying dividends now. There are loads more!!
And before anyone asks for the variety, the orange ones at front left are made of metal - I love them, I bought the shop out when I saw them and gave several away as presents. Never seen them since and wish I'd kept more for myself! Been out 3 winters and still look great. (The stems of my ceramic toadstools not faring quite so well).
Why am I showing you this? Well it's our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and have a go yourself.
Have a great week, stay well, stay safe, love n hugs Cindy xx
