Monday morning and only four more sleeps until the big day and still not really ready. Are we ever ready, I very much doubt it, although I stood behind a lady in Tesco the other day who was extremely confident she had been ready since the first of December.......she went on to tell the cashier that she makes it a household policy that everyone has their preparations completed by that date........I felt like saying wake up to the real world lady ! The cashier gave me a wry look as she walked away and I had a fair idea that his thoughts were not too distant from my own.
Crafting - well my mojo has been on holiday the last few days........or could be away making Christmas preparations with the lady in Tesco........but thanks to Claire and her wonderful artwork it has made a brief appearance today, albeit it very much in my botanical comfort zone. Claire has come up with another brilliant image and it's free to anyone who pops along to her blog.
As soon as I saw her latest image I could visualise a card and I have used it for this weeks Cupcake challenge which has the theme "Time For Celebration - a fairly open ended theme birthday, new baby, wedding, engagement, the choice is yours!"
So I have used Claire's image which I thought matched wonderfully the dragonfly she created form me a while back when I won her candy. I printed the main image three times and dragonfly twice so I could decoupage, colouring with Copics. I have added diamond glaze to the tulips and mounted all onto some My Minds Eye DP, a greeting from Rubber Tapestry CLS5006 made into a ribbon slide using a Nestie run through the Bug and some ribbon. I also traced the swirls on the image bow and added crystal glitter. As I said, very much comfort zone stuff.
