I got the frames finished today, a couple still need a coat of varnish. After digging around the stamps I found this lovely swirl, very aptly I used Coral Cloud cosmic embossing powder, my mum's name was Coral! It is a very rich colour. I'm liking the cosmic shimmers, they give a really glossy finish. I decided to use one of the smaller Crafty Individual stamps for this one, I cut out the frame then used the embossing powder to make it ping, I had to touch up in places with the embossing pen. Funny though as the camera has decided to change the background card to purple, when it is brown!
Inbetween times I fixed the music box. We've had this music box for years, it was a present from my aunty to mum and it is from Singapore. The hinge was broken, or rather the screws were missing, so got some teeny tiny screws and sorted out the lid, then got the thing to play! Then it was lunch, and time to sort out the shopping. Had to congratulate myself on several bargains, so the freezer is stocked up with chicken and mince. Had to laugh at the 'meat free' fish fingers... er! It was bad enough reading that a firm had had to recall packets of nuts as they hadn't been labelled as containing nuts, though it said nuts on the packet!
I also managed to find some purple mirri card,which matched the Purple Twilight adirondiac ink pad, seemed to finish this piece off nicely. This will be a birthday present for a friend, hope she likes it.
Make My Monday which is to do with Anything that Flies. Nice to take part in a challenge again.
Well it would have been pleasant had it not been for a silly letter about the HB, stupid lot at the council have calculated my weekly income at £224, I wish! It is way, way under that, I informed them of all my income, supplied all the documents and still they get it wrong! They've stupidly added a pension that stops this month, which they were told about, proof supplied, and the carer's allowance which also ends this month. I expected this to be a hassle from past experience when I worked as a CAB advisor. Can't do anything till Tuesday of course. It just makes my blood boil, I watched the news and they said that the government were planning to buy at least 40 super douper fighter jets at a cost of 100 million a piece, that does not include costs for maintenance. Yep squeeze the poor, that is all this bloody lot can do, it made my day to see UKIP do so well at the council elections and to have the smile wiped off Cameron's face, the man is clueless. I'll get off the soap box now.
Enjoy the bank holiday weekend, and the lovey weather.
