9:30 at Babbacombe is fine as I live across the road from the church, I'll be attempting to go to Brixham for 10 on Tuesday which will be interesting as it can take 40 minutes to get there. Slightly less if you don't get lost (I have discovered that Brixham is rather unforgiving if you lose concentration and take a wrong turning). This is the fun of a new posting and everyone is very understanding!
So onto cards wot I have made this week
Zuzana chose the Daring Cardmakers dare this week - Fun with Pictograms
I knew straightaway that I had to find some old American Crafts papers that I had and it was fingers crossed that I hadn't tossed them
I used 4 papers from the pack and one of the stickers. I also added glitter ribbon and stamps from Imagine That, some Doodlebug embossed black paper, Nestabilities and some Enamel Accents.
This weekend it is my parents Golden Wedding - which will probably feature in future posts. Here is the card I have made. Parents, look away now!
It is VERY sparkly. This is helped by the MME glitter embossed paper - I managed to die cut the numbers from another of those golden swirls, but also from liberal use of golden glitter dust. I used my new paper chain die (there are only 4 in a row but I am quite proud of the fact that you can't see the join. Little things please little minds). The sentiment is one of the new Imagine That stamps
And finally a just because I have some time to create card. This uses a 6 x6 MME paper pack, lots of different dies and some fussy cutting. I wondered why it took so long but there are 7 laters, not including the sentiment. But it is flat enough to post!
I don't think I have mentioned my MA results on the blog. My dissertation arrived through the post this week and looks most posh (I had it bound in green with gold writing!). I received a 67 for the dissertation which means that I have a Merit award in total. My first year I scraped through and did wonder if this was all for me but I am glad I persisted. It still feels strange not to have to work towards it, that 5 years of study are finally over (and no more cinema and clothes shops reductions any more!) but that is it! I'll be swanking around in cap and gown for my graduation in October.
