It was cool and wet here today, but I still got my 2 walks done, the first one under my umbrella (which perhaps inspired me to use my fave Mr UM again). The good thing about wet days is that there is hardly anyone outside, so I feel like I have my corner of the world all to myself.
I discovered a small journal with torn covers stuffed into one of my drawers, so I decided to make a new cover for it. I used some recycled card to cut it from, and painted it with my usual mix of blues and greens, and added some background stamping. Then I stamped the diamond pattern using embossing ink and white EP and my lovely stencil from Diane. I added some of the many UFOs (untidy flying around objects) from my work table, and that was it. It looks good now, and I can use it again.
And both sides shown together:
I took part in a 'play it forward' art swap with Marji and yesterday this beautiful concertina book arrived in my mail box. I love the colours, and the grungy style, and how she has used fabric on it, and carried on its pattern - fantastic. Thanks a lot, this is going onto my mini-book shelf with my other treasures!
And I also found a large envelope from dear Sandy in my box!
In it was a copy of craft stamper, with a free stamp attached, and I spent a very nice evening reading and getting inspired!
And this wonderful stamp came with it - wow!
I am looking forward to getting it inked up and used on my journal pages and cards.
Thanks again, Sandy, you are a sweetie, that's for sure!
And last but not least, this photo is extra for Sandy, as she always asks what I have been cooking and baking. I made a delicious stir-fry, and enjoyed every morsel of it!
That's all for today! Have a good one, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
