Yes it is actually Friday
And Friday is the day when I plan to post but usually don't manage it.
However that means that there is very little to show as this has been a mostly work and not play week - apart from the great crochet project with a Mother's Day deadline. The Jury is still out on that one being completed on time...
What I can share is my Daring Card this week
our theme is Simply Irresistable and I couldn't resist (hah!) using it as an excuse to try out a technique I saw on Jennifer McGuire's blog.
Now obviously her card turned out waaaaaaaaaay better than mine but as a first go I am quite pleased
I also added some wink of stella shimmer which I don't think you can see even on a close up. Although you can see my imperfect painting!
I used a Clearly Besotted sentiment which was stamped and embossed on one of the offcuts of the first card. The image was raised with foam pads.
I made it while listening to "the Last Anniversary" by Liane Moriarty on my ipod. Oh what a delightful listen. It is probably a good read too, but having it read with an Aussie accent helps with the context I think. I've just finished it and highly recommend it (a few swear words but no graphic sex scenes. I hate the latter in an audio book....)
Right off to have lunch. I know that part of it will feature these
They even look like little loaves rather than chips to me.
And it turns out they are incredibly delicious.
There are not 12 baskets left over but there are two packets and one is calling my name.
I also saw this on Facebook this morning which might have helped our discussions yesterday :)
