It has been a while though!
Life has been rather eventful and not much crafting has been done - until yesterday!
Its after half term so there is just one type of crafting on the agenda...
Christmas Blessings and Damask Designs which features the lovely angels wings. I'm not sure Emma intended them to be angels wings but that is what they look like to me!
I thought I would make simple cards this year. Only there are 6 layers - 5 are die cut, one dry embossed, all inked and the image was stamped in gold ink, the sentiment across the top and then the image outlined with a glue pen and then covered in Glamour Dust. See, simple. Oh and to get colours of distressing I was happy with, some of the layers are inked with three colours. Simple. See?
The papers are all from an old K and Co pad which was not necessarily Christmas papers but the right kind of colours for me. I did variations on a theme
I've made over 50 so will just need to find time for another batch day - and some more papers.
But life is still rather full with
- Dissertation bits to be done. March is coming and I really want to be done well before that!
- Running - I did get up to 28 minutes but I have been a little unwell so need to redo a week of 25 minutes I think
- Accepting a call to new pastorates. From early July next year the family Nevard will be living in Babbacombe, Torquay. Its a big change in lots of ways. We will have been here 13 years by then and it is a wrench to go. But the Spirit said - have a look - so we did. Next Sunday/Monday will be spent back in Torquay looking at Sixth Forms. I'll be glad when that is settled to be honest.
