Hi you all, hope you have had a good day. It was chilly again here, but it stayed dry, the sun was shining, and the birds were singing, so a pleasant day all in all. And nobody woke me early! Tomorrow I will have to be out early, though, as my car has to go to the TÜV - a safety and function test for all cars every 2 years.
I spent my day painting and crafting, and made a nice 'Eintopf' - a meal cooked in one pot, with cabbage, beef, veggies, potatoes and tomatoes - yummy! And I have enough to keep me going for a few days, so won't need to cook again.
The challenge at Simon Says is to make something travel-themed, and at the Craft Room Hazel has chosen the challenge and wants to see a holiday postcard.
I have collaged my postcard with squares and oblongs of travel themed paper from various makers. I used a Martha Stewart punch to make some 'lace' from an old map. My all-time fave, Mr Umbrella Man, had to make another appearance. I cut him twice, once from the same map and once from black card, and layered them one over the other to give more definition. I shaded the card and edges with Antique linen and vintage photo DIs, and added some stamping in Adirondack espresso. The sentiment has been made with a Dymo label-maker, and means 'where are you going?'.
Oh, I almost forgot - I made the top 5 at Try it on Tuesday again, so that was nice!
And I just learnt that I won Petra's giveaway, yay!
Have a good day you all, hope the sun shines for you! Take care, and thanks for visiting!
