Wednesday again, how quickly it comes round! This week I have been mainly colouring as I have been stocking up on Promarkers. (Cowling and Wilcox are selling the packs of 5 half price till 22nd August, I've just ordered another 3 packs on top of the 2 they have already sent me!) I really need to have a lesson on using them though as I was never an artist and am tending to just colour in more or less solid blocks, so could do with a lesson on light and shading!
Yes, that is also a Christmas card you can see on my desk! There were so many very organised bloggers I had seen that I was shamed into making a start! There were quite a few Christmassy bits in the haul of stash I got from the car boot sale the other week, so I emptied them all out and had a play. I'll show you the snowman card again when it is finished! The only slight problem is I can't find where I have hidden all my Christmas stamps from last year, any ideas?! There was a Professor of Findology on BBC breakfast (yes really, it's August, they are running out of news to report...) who suggested stopping looking for what you've lost and it will then turn up, so I am trying to resist the urge to turn the house upside down...
My Dad's birthday book is now finished, scroll down a couple of posts to see the finished results. Can't wait for Saturday now, hope the weather is OK!
Finally, here is a picture of my climbing rose in the back garden which I can see from my craft desk. I had thought the climbing rose had gone as it was there when the garden was an overgrown jungle and I had asked the gardeners who came back in the Spring to pull everything out as I was starting again. Looks like the rose is hardy and a couple of branches (do roses have branches??) have survived. This is the first flower since it was brutally flattened, I'm glad it didn't go now! (I wish the bl*&**y) ivy that is popping out behind it had gone though, it's popping up all over the flipping place, grrr!)
Better go to work I suppose, I would much rather stay here, do some surfing and then some crafting, oh well.
I managed to get round about 30 of you last week, plus most (I think!) of my regular commenters, so not too bad! I visited numbers 1-30 last week, so will go for 31-60 this week I think! I'm sure I will get round all of you eventually!
