Not the one it should be

today I should be revealing my Salt layout of the fortnight.
But having been a bit pants this week I am behind and so will have to do a two hander tomorrow.
I think I have the tail end of a virus in my system which, when I get run down leaves me a bit feak and weeble. Either that or I am just a big wuss.
I did have short bursts of feeling a little better when - oh the irony - I made some get well cards as that is what I am low on! I am heaps better today, phew! can't afford the time to be sicky.

The Funky Hand gang (sounds like a rap group) have been doing an image swap so I have been rediscovering the delights of colouring in. these were done with distress inks but I have also been using my Prismas whilst watching tv so expect to see more cards with images on soon. I finally traipsed up to the Post Office to send mine off tonight. Only he had closed early with computer problems again. Hm. PO'd is exactly what I am!

OK back to cards. Exhibit A
Penny Black stamp, tall card, Basic Grey Urban Prairie 6x6 paper, brown grosgrain ribbon, Doodlebug furry brads; Purple Onion sentiment and letter stickers whose name I can't recall just now.

And "B" is also Penny Black. I still can't decide whether sky is better or not with these stamps. What is hard to see is that I cut out the image with a Nestie and round the edge, closer in than the black line there is a little embossed line which looks v. posh. Papers all Offbeat 12x12 with a bit of doodling. Sentiment is hand written.

PB again. With Nestie frame, BG Urban Prairie 6x6 papers and some cut e black pearly which I think are straighter in real life!

Must catch up with some work now... and finish my layout :(

Sorry to hear you are under the weather..get well soon.
The image cards have come out fab!

I like the idea of the Funky Hand Gang being a rap group..maybe that will be our next thing to do! Lets hit the charts!!
