Well it has been a much cooler day here today with a bit of rain. A welcome relief from the heat. I was at Craft with Shirley today - we made 3 lovely cards and had a fun time. Her hubby Doug came with her and after wandering around the shops a bit, came back and had a chat with some of us.
Fran, Helen and I stopped on the way home at a little cafe and had lunch. We stopped there chatting a bit longer than usual as Fran didn't have to take her Mum to any appointments today. We dropped Helen off and stopped in at Fran's Mum's place for her to do a dressing on her leg and then we popped into the shops to pick up a few groceries.
When I got home, our daughter came over on her way home from her first day at school. She is going to train as an enrolled nurse. At present she works in Aged Care, so she will work and study at the same time if she can manage it.
I sent off my e-mail requesting a leave of absence from the choir I am in and will go back after the concert is performed. I've had 3 weeks off already so according to the conductors request of missing more than two and you can't perform I decided to have a bit of a rest and stay home Tuesday nights.
The card I would like to share tonight was made using a sketch from Merry Monday Challenge Blog,
here it is....
The basecard is a top fold card using SU Pacific Point, a layer of SU Calypso Coral.
The DP is from p.i.g.g.y tales, billy goats gruff collection. Another piece of Calypso Coral with one edge punched with a scallop border punch.
I stamped the image in SU Basic Grey and then using 3 different DP paper scraps I paper pieced the jacket, pants and bag. The rest of the image was coloured using Copic Markers. The image is called Oxford and is a Mo Manning clear stamp from Stampavie. The sentiment is from TPC Studio -Brush Stroke Greetings. I also used a large circle punch to cut out the circle in Pacific Point to put behind the little boy.
