Allsorts


The challenge this week at Allsorts is EMBOSSING
I hope you can see the embossing on my card- its swiss dots on the scalloped circle
I got out my distressed inks and inked up the card and stamped onto it using Tim Holz stamp then did the same with the tattered florals die for the flower- it looks a bit more 3D in real life than the photo shows
What happened to the weather here????supposed to be the hottest day and its windy, cloudy and threatening to rain- good job I planned to spend most of it in the craft room then!
Think I did too much yesterday- housework, bit of painting then tackled the dreaded weedy stretch of garden- bit it was dry as a bone and I couldn't even get the spade in so I sat there in the dirt with a trowel and dug away for about four hours and not even half of it done..... boy am I sore today and had to strap my hand up(suffer tendonitis at the best of times) and don't have the energy to be doing much today.... hope there's some tennis on might just chill and watch that for a while
Have a good Sunday whatever you are up to
