Also found another trick, I made a mistake with the colour so had to wash it off, not wanting to wait for the wood to dry I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds, it needed another 10 to get it completely dry, but times will vary depending on what you want to dry.
I chose the Hope sentiment, by Crafty Individuals, to go inside, again using a die cut frame to highlight it.
This will be in my room once it is decorated. Got mum's room to do first, it is now all prepped, washed the walls and ceiling yesterday. So once the housing officer has been tomorrow I should get the ceiling done. I'd not heard anything from the Housing Association about the change in tenancy, so called them again today, and discovered they'd phoned the day of mum's funeral. They weren't to know, even so I thought it was a bit odd that I'd had no letter from them.
Last picture shows the back, I used a Kaiser Craft stamp, some little butterflies, and a few flourishes.
Feel a bit guilty for not being out in this lovely weather. It has at last warmed up here, but it has been rather windy! I'm having real problems with my left knee, which was the good knee, and my back has also been very painful. If I don't move I'm fine... ! I should get my Inkadinkadoo thing by the end of the week. I've also ordered something more boring, but very important, the new anti virus program, Norton wanted £60 odd quid for a years protection, I went Amazon and just bought the 2013 version, which is what I do every year.
I did catch the new Clarity Stamp show on CnC, I remembered Barbara saying something about it, some nice stamps. And some interesting techniques from Maria (I think that was her name, missed the start of the show). A bit too much CD crafting on today for my liking, I did succumb to a CD once, but have hardly used it, found the quality wasn't very good, which is why I'm not mentioning any names! Though I do like my craft artist studio, that has made a difference to my crafting, I can make some nice inserts now, and I have done some scrap pages as well.
Well that is all for now, decorating tomorrow, crafting again on Thursday, but not sure what!
