Good morning everyone. Saturday again already, but even worse we're into August already. Can't believe how quickly this year is passing. But there's nothing we can do about it so all we can do is keep on enjoying our crafting!
As it's the first Saturday of the month we have a sketch challenge for you at Totally Gorjuss and as usual we're sponsored by the lovely Joanna Sheen with £10 to spend at her online store.
Here's Net's sketch.
I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
Sentiment & candi :- Craftwork Cards.
DP :- First Edition. The music is part of a LOTV stamp with a touch of Antique Linen DI.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Martha Stewart edge punch and gems.
I'm entering the following challenges :-
Paperplay :- Layer it up.
Christmas stampin all year long :- A pair of 3s. I've used 3 DPs, sets of 3 candi and 2 sets of 3 gems.
Dream Valley :- Use die cuts and punches.
Yesterday was a gorgeous sunny day here in Aberdeenshire so fingers crossed for some dry weather at the weekend. I don't want to be too ambitious and hope for sun, just dry would be nice!
Have you all been watching the Olympics? I haven't seen much but even I have noticed that team GB has won a few medals. Congrats to them all especially the Scottish athletes. Has anyone noticed that Royal Mail are bringing out a mini sheet of stamps every time a member of team GB wins a gold medal? Well we have got the first two sets in our little post office. Not sure why because when I checked the system told me that the nearest post offices to be stocking these stamps were both in Aberdeen!
I've not seen much tv as I've been making jam would you believe?! On Thursday I made lime curd and then blueberry jam. On Friday morning I made pineapple jam. Yum, I love pineapple jam on scones. Now I need to make scones!! We have a little sales table after church this Sunday so I'm going to take some to that. I've got lemons for lemon curd but I need to buy some more butter before I can make it.
Thanks for looking and I'll be along to see you this afternoon after work.
