And that was the week that was

I can't quite believe it, we are almost at the end of January! I seem to have spent most of at the hospital... hope I get a break from hospital appointments soon. It is a nightmare to park, funny it wasn't last summer... tho I have found a few spaces that few seem to know about.

Bit of a nothing weekend, I blame the BBC for showing the Australian Open early in the morning, yesterday I watched Andrew Murray play his match, so that meant a late start to the day. Tho I did go for a walk to corner shop, but blow me, forgot again to post a birthday card! I'll try again tomorrow. Have made a list of what I need to do tomorrow, pay phone bill, get prescription, some shopping... and book car in for MOT. Mind you, Murray is playing again tomorrow!

So got into some card making, I love this 1920s kit, it is so versatile. For this card, I cut out a section to mount the decoupage, and took a silver glitter frame, cut it up and put that round decoupage, then I took 3 glitter squares and spaced them down spine, and finished it off with putting paper on the inside, just to give it a list.

Tho was delayed in starting my craft session, I managed to knock over the top of my tool box, the tray in which all my tools are kept, they all spilled out onto the floor. It was a bit serendipity, as I'd been meaning to clean it out for a while. So I got rid of some rubbish, found some blades I didn't know I had, and tidied the whole thing up. Also found some 3d Foam squares - really must sort out my stash, Lord knows what else I've got hidden away.

Also made a lantern card yesterday, tho it all nearly went pear shaped when I stuck the DST on the wrong side of the inner card! Luckily brain was in gear and I got the glitter and sprinkled that on, so it was a happy accident! Must take a photo of it.

But really must replenish the glue stocks... got no sticky dots and no photo glue :-( Did take a peek at bank account, it is very healthy, so think I can afford to stock up on a few essentials.

Hope you all had a good weekend.
