But the last 2 weeks there has been more sunshine than rain. Huzzah!
I love my drive from home to Brixham which I do at least 3 times a week (it is 6 this week!) It is 10 miles but I go all along the coast and love spotting all the different glimpses of sea on the way and on the way back. It is even nicer in the sunshine. If you have to have a 10 mile commute to part of your work then there can't be many better ones.
Crafting time has been a bit thin on the ground this week. I did take card making stuff down to the Place - Youthwork that is part run by my church. I do only take things that I am happy to be used (or think I am!) but this does get tested when almost a whole packet of stick on pearls goes on one card. I have to remind myself that
1) I do only take things that I am happy to be used
2) the packet was only £1
3) its not like I only have one packet. I'm not telling you how many
4) the card looked fabulous.
which also tells me that sometimes we have to be generous. Both me with my pearls but in a deeper way also in using what we have. What has more value - the beautiful card that used a lot of pearls, or a drawer full of packets of stick on gems. We need to use the gifts that we have given
and of course there is the bonus that suggests I still don't really get the "enough" idea
5) I can buy more stick on pearls!
I did have time to join in with the Daring Cardmakers though. It was a fun recipe challenge - Ingredients
An Aperture of some kind
Something beginning with the letter P
A Die-cut or Punchie
The colour Blue
And here is my slightly contraversial entry
I used the Silhouette to cut out the Lori Whitlock bicycle and road shapes. I trimmed out the centre of the white embossed card and added vellum behind as an aperture.
And that is almost that.
Except that the first bike I cut out had a bit of a spoke disaster. So I trimmed them all out and made this as well
using the same MME 6x6 pad.
Lets see if I can keep on doing more with what I have this week :)
