It feels like years since I came back from holiday - rather than 5 days! But that is what the job is like really. Last night I was in two minds as to whether to go out to another meeting that I didn't have to go to, but felt the Call of Duty (not the machine gunning type - the love and responsibility type. Every nw and then I wish it was the former)
And I am so glad I did. It was a meeting called by Brixham for Global Action as a Question Time based on the IF campaign
which talks about how there is enough food for everyone
IF we make the right investments as we deliver AID
IF we stop people being forced off their LAND
IF we stop companies dodging TAXES
IF we insist on TRANSPARENCY from governments and companies alike
and then I came home and played with my latest piece of consumerism.
Birds Cards, which is an awesome site that has free cutting files and digital stamps as well.
I made the card for the latest Daring Cardmaker challenge which was set by the marvellous Miri - April Showers. I used a Basic Grey Paper Cottage 6x6 pad as the backing for the card and to make the umbrella which is a MFT die, as are the clouds. The clouds were dry embossed and covered with Hard Candy Distress Stickles and the umbrella with Glossy Accents. Buttercup Liquid pearls were added around a Waltzing Mouse sentiment
I've not had the time that the new Quirky Kits deserve at the moment (sob) but have put one layout on the blog and have another two primed and ready
But t Ihave been really challenged by the idea of enough.
I have enough. I have more than enough. Can I stop my conspicuous consumerism, especially on craft goods and learn to be satisfied with all that I have?
Lets see if I can (says the person with a few parcels on their way). Lets just see
