Remember my Sound of Music tickets what I lost? You'll never guess what.... Yup. They disappeared off the pinboard. Fortunately I found them down the back of the radiator. They are now stuck with two pins on the board and as I have less that a week to go before i need then (woo hoo) I am hopeful that it won't happen again.
Well I think I managed to launch the Daring Cardmakers blog successfully! we now put our own cards on during the week which makes it easier and the new Blogger is more reliable too. I am always in a panic that I will accidentally publish instead of saving as draft so I have to chant "draft, draft"until I finish. Can you unpublish? So my idea was to use items in your wardrobe for inspiration. I was quite pleased with my idea until I opened my wardrobe. I am a Minister. I still haven't quite shaken off the semi Goth look of my youth in the 80's. Most of my wardrobe is dull and black and grey. But luckily I am trying to move away from all the gloom especially in the summer so I did have two colourful skirts to play with!
Both skirts are from Primark!
This card uses a SA kit card, Fontwerks Elsie flower stamps, some ribbon and red diamentes
This one is very simple! Circles of DCWV card stock, Distress Ink, Prima flowers and stickles glue. Oh and a tiny peel off! Yes and I like it!
It is so exciting to have a new team member at DCM. Debbie is just 'resting' but we like to have a large group so that if anyone can't make a dare then there is still plenty for everyone to see. we chose Gillian for her talent and her enthusiasm. It was hard cos there are so many talented people. But we have plans to highlight other people who play along so just watch this space. well that space I suppose.
As it is Friday I am trying to put my worship service together. It is the story of the wedding at Cana this week - the wonderful time when Jesus turned water into wine. Think I might talk about how he uses us and turns what we might think is ordinary (our lives, our skills) into the good stuff that makes a difference to people (but not obviously that makes them very drunk and sick after only two glasses as happens with me and wine. For me I would hope that he also turned some water into gin. Not too much of that either though).
But in the middle of my thinking I have to go out and collect my Craft Robo. Way hey! And if that thought doesn't cheer you up as much as me - try this monkey's back
(for those not in the UK this comedian and the monkey starred in tv adverts for a tv idea that went belly up. Everyone preferred the monkey to the tv concept)
