Hello Blog friends, thank you for popping into my wee corner of Blogland.
Oh! My! Word it was so cold today, dry which was a bonus. I am really getting just a "Tad" fed up of the winter now. I suffer from S.A.D. which I take Vitamin D to help. I think it works and am not prepared to stop it just in case..................!!!! I usually do stop at the beginning of May and start again end of October. Have had one of these Lamps but it did not help me................anyway enough of the moaning.
I got a frantic call from a neighbour, her daughter had won a schools Short Story competition. Could I please make a card before she got home, something with books. Now this was at approx 2.30 the bus brings the children home at 3.30. What did I do????? ..........well rummaged in the Bit Box AGAIN of course!!!!
Here is my card and yes! it did take all of 5mins to put together I think that is quite obvious. Took me the rest of the time to "Think" of something relating to books.
Base card 6 x 6 pre-scored card
Lilac Card from stash
Paterned paper a Freebie Pad from a magazine
I cut strips to represent the books and placed them on a strip of Kraft card made to look like a Book Shelf. Added a couple of Brads and some peel off .
Decorated the books best I could and added the Congratulations stamp.
Customer happy, thank goodness.
Must be Area thing with the schools at the moment. Robert won a "Poetry Reciting" competition on Tuesday. Went onto the Area Finals yesterday and came in 6th. Now I really do not know how many were in the Finals it might just have been 6 ...................!!!! He took part that`s the main thing, Thomas well he`s just Thomas good at a few things but do not ask him to "compete".
That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it
Have a Great Weekend
