Wow, only two more sleeps, LOL, and I will be off to Tasmania for a week. I was hoping to schedule posts while I was away, but haven't had time to make extra cards so unless I get some done tomorrow, I will have to wait until I get home.
I went off to the craft shop with a friend today and she surprised me with some cash to spend there for my birthday. I bought two mini stacks of paper and have used two different pieces in today's card. We also ran into another friend in the carpark who we hadn't seen for a while so she went back into the shop and chatted while we looked around and then we asked her to come to a local cafe for coffee. It was really good to see her and catch up with her news and share some of ours too. We ended up having a bit of lunch and then come back here. I thought I had to be at the doctors at 2.30 p.m. so was pottering around home sorting out what to take away with me and next minute I get a call from the doctor's surgery checking if I was coming for my appointment - I had got the time wrong - it was supposed to be 2 p.m. She told me to come at 2.30. I was seeing a nurse to fill in paperwork and organise a health package to see dentist, podiatrist, dietician and an exercise physiologist! All because I have diabetes and need to make sure all these other areas are taken care of. I get a certain amount of free appointments and then it's up to me if I have to follow any up. Anyway, I was then late for the doctor as well, he had to sign all the paperwork. He told me that he was fully booked in the morning from 10 -11 a.m. and all those patients didn't arrive until 11 a.m. So he had a very busy day trying to get back onto schedule and then I got my time wrong too! Oh well, it's all organised now and will wait until I get back from holidays to start making appointments!!
Onto the card for today...
I've used SU More Mustard for the basecard and then a layer of DP. I cut another piece of DP to go across the middle of the card and then added my digi image which is from Beyond the Fringe. I used a bit of distress ink on parts of the image and coloured the seat and cogs in with Copic Markers. I used an alphabet die to cut out the letters for my sentiment and stuck them to white card which I also distressed with Vintage ink. The inside of the card has a piece of SU Early Espresso and a strip of DP leftover from the piece I used on the front. I added a white diecut, distressed it with ink and stamped the sentiment called "Good Times" by Kaszazz in Basic Brown ink.
Oops forgot to mention who made the DP, it is from Prima marketing and is called "Almanac Collection"
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
