I am sure the time flies by more quickly from year to year, from month to month. Once again I have only managed half of what I wanted to do this week, and all the good intentions to do this and that are leading nowhere. Yesterday I just needed to do a bit of food shopping, and then had the whole day for crafting and painting....or so I thought. Every time I started working, either the telephone rang or the door-bell, sometimes both. Mostly I get rung up perhaps twice a week, and hardly anyone visits. They all waited till yesterday. Anyway, I did manage a card and a tag, but that was it! I am linking this post to the AEDM at *Creative Every Day*
The card is for the Just For Fun Challenge, where we have to use our favourite stamp(s). Difficult, I have so many I love! But I chose this stamp of a little girl in a lacy dress from Scrollswork, who unfortunately closed down. I distressed the card with ancient paper, vintage photo and Victorian lipstick, and stamped the image with vintage photo before clear embossing it. I did not want to add too much, so just used a scrap of lace, some beads, a feather and 2 little silk roses. I stamped *Postcard* onto it, and that was it.
The tag has been made for Gingersnaps GC 125 *Farm Fresh*. This is once again a theme which is not really my cup of tea, but I have tried. I like the background of the tag best, which was sprayed, splodged and splattered with distress inks in spiced marmalade, forest moss and faded jeans. When it was dry I stamped a row of turkeys along the bottom edge, added a turkey picture from *Crafty Secrets* (thanks Jan!) and a vintage scrap of a country girl, which I fixed with foam pads after *rounding* it on my glue stick, to give more dimension. I added some straw left over from my Halloween decorations, and that was it.
And I have another joke from Narda for you.
We had a power outage during a thunderstorm. As we peered from our dark cubicles to the outside world, my Director commented that it looked like power was out
for miles, since the office buildings as far as we could see were also dark. Our temp admin said, and I quote: "Can't be too far, that plane has lights!"
Have a great day, take care, and thanks for visiting.
