Do you ever berate the clock and ask it to please please wait for you to catch up?? that is my frame of mind this morning.... and suspect it will be for quite a while yet - hopefully by June I can come up for air without this feeling!! yes, have not blogged much lately and I am afraid my appearances will be rather erratic for the reason already stated - plus may not catch up up with as many of you very dear folk as I would like - so please forgive me for my lack of comments on your lovely blogs at times!
First pickie is of a card of scraps - I have finally made this one up and the one below with my desk. I am going to enter both these in Di's Snippets challenge to use up odd bits sitting around
. You know I make more of snippets every time I make a card - so they never ever diminish but propagate more freely than any plant I ever attempted to grow!
The first card uses the Crafty secrets bird postcard stamp with brayer way back here in this post
with Big and Juicy Stamp Pad (Hydrangea) and Iridescent medium,(I dropped this on with an eye dropper in the middle of the brayering the ink pad colours) to give it that sheen..so used purple end for this one.
Next stamp is a brayer resist piece I did even longer ago and was not even blogging then. It is with Stamping Up Upsy Daisy stamp and used it for a sympathy card.
The next photo is the amazing candy I won over at Craft International,
and the very kind Jude - it was before all the dramas over at her place and it has just arrived and was totally blown away by the great bounty! thank you so very much dear blogging friend and I pray things are starting to resolve themselves at your neck of the woods.
Last but not least are some beach photos as folks do like to see these - there may not be many for while depending on me not the beach - the first was taken late yesterday afternoon on my walk at the creek mouth.
It fascinates me the way the sea is constantly changing. The direction of the mouth and the creek flow changes so much with all our big seas and storms of late. It has reverted back to more early times before the council dumped all the sand from the dredging at the jetty over here - it rather blocked the mouth up for while!
The next is of the sailboats in the jetty on Sunday they have great local races and love seeing them way out to sea as well when walking..
I was going to close with a big announcement but will keep you all in suspenders a bit longer :D
and announce it in the next few days as must fly now!
Happy WOYWW everyone - do pop over to our wonderful Julia's blog too
as there is great learning to be had a few laughs along the way!
May God bless your day wherever you may be, and thanks for stopping by for a peek and chat!
