Thanks for sticking with me lately … when I have been a bit here & there with posts! I am gradually catching up on my bookwork (after the computer crash) … but family life is also a tad busy. Sheree started her new job today … at our local Christian school … teaching YR 1. I have been helping her set up her classroom … laminating & cutting bright items to display (ie. birthday lists … word garden (100 flowers with frequently used words) … ‘wow wall’ & stars … etc etc) We also spent yesterday morning at the movies … to share some time together before she goes out into the big wide world! (As much as a small local school can be!) We saw The Descendents. I really liked it … Sheree thought it was good … Skye wasn’t impressed at all! And … it is a sad movie … so if you aren’t in the mood … then I guess you might find it a bit depressing. Anyway … here is my card for today.
This card was created with much love for my brother-in-law’s 50th birthday which is today!!! Happy Birthday, Scott!!! Hope it is a really special day for a really special guy! I do hope his card arrived on time! Snail mail is not always super reliable! I hope Scott also enjoys planning for his big walk in Tasmania next January!
I thought I would share an idea that I found on Paula’s blog a couple of months ago. I have created some acetate masks to use for sponging clouds & mountains/sea. So easy to pull these out when I need them … rather than having to make a new mask each time. Looking at Paula’s again … I think I need to tweak these a little to be more defined … but I did use them on today’s card … as is. (Please ignore the white spots! Just some left over sticky stuff!) 😀
Well … I had better get moving. Gav & I are off to a wedding tomorrow and we need to run up to Sydney this afternoon to check the park … and go to the rehearsal at the church. (Gavin is taking the photos.) It is Jono’s (son-i-l) sister who is getting married. Gav is rather nervous … cos it is 5 years since he has done a wedding. Hope it all comes back to him! I am happy … cos I found a really pretty dress to wear! (It’s a long time since I felt pretty in anything!) Yay! for the January sales!!! 😉 Hugs xxx
