Can you believe it is Wednesday again, and time to take a hop, skip and jump around the various blogs that you can find at Julia's Stamping Ground. Do join in and see what is keeping us all busy.
I do believe I might manage a short post today, (short for me anyway). I am writing in the 'wee small hours' and falling asleep over the keyboard, but I just know there won't be time before I go out in the morning. We have had another little heatwave this week with temperatures up in the forties, and it is very draining. One day we had the 'Sirocco wind' again which sweeps in straight from the desserts of Africa, laden with fine red dust that dries out your eyes and nose, and anywhere else it can find! The fans were on but it felt like sitting under a hot hair drier all day, so we had to give in and use the air.con. for a day or two. So needless to say, I have read a couple of books this week, but crafting has been kept to a minimum. I did finish the tiger card with the alcohol ink background I was making last week. You can see it here.
What's on my workdesk this week? Well, as you can see, the alcohol inks are out again. This time I used bottle green and meadow on some holographic silver card. You can also see an assortment of odd shaped cut outs in black and silver card. The new blade and cutting mat for my Silhouette Cameo machine arrived yesterday and I wanted to try them out. Can you guess what I am making? Well if it all comes together, I will return in the week and show you what I have made. Otherwise it will all end up in the bin, which right now is probably the more likely outcome!! maybe I'll have a new source of patience after a few hours sleep.
Thank you so much for all the kind comments you left me last week. A big welcome to my new followers. Don't forget there are still a few days to sign up for my blog candy. See my post about it here. I'll be back with the winner at the weekend.
Happy Workdesk Wednesday everyone!
