It was the same today, got going crafting around 1pm, but by the time I'd made my background, cut some shapes the light was starting to go again. Grrrr...
Also had some car problems! I bought a newish car in the vain hope of avoiding such problems. On Tuesday the car wouldn't start.... :-(
So rang garage, they said they'd get to me asap. They arrived with the jump start kit, but car failed to start... had visions of a huge bill looming. Then mechanic said he thought he knew what it, said he'd be back after lunch. And he was, with an old part they'd removed, they'd fixed it and put it back on car, bingo, car started - seems the new part is faulty, so mechanic went off to have argument with Nissan dealer.
In the meantime I crafted the above piece, it's for a challenge, but now can't remember which one! Will have to check. I used some bits from a potato bag would you believe? The red piece of paper was off the top of the spud bag.
Also had another go at the deep embossing, I saved some tin cake containers, the small ones, and used an oven glove to hold it! This time I heated it for a little longer, and made sure it was molten when it was on the craft mat, this time the powders were properly absorbed. I got a much better impression this time.
Hope my ottlite arrives soon, getting fed up of not being able to craft.
