It is my Mother-in-law's birthday next week and Neil really liked the card I shared with you a couple of days ago, so he asked me to make a similar design for his mum, this is what I came up with. I used my new Marianne birdcage die which I bought whilst I was out with my friends Anita and Nicki last sunday.
I used Basic Grey papers, punches by EK Success and Martha Stewart, I inked all edges with Sahara Sand ink by Versamagic and the sentiment is a stamp by Stampin' Up
These next couple of photos are of some of the new shelves housing some of the new cardstock we have introduced to the shop during the refurbishment, these are mainly for you Chanelle, there will be more to follow next week.
Today was spent completing the usual weekend tasks, washing ironing housework etc, I also enjoyed a few hours weeding and tidying the garden, the lawn needed mowing and there was a few areas in dire need of a little attention. After which I managed to squeeze in a little baking before the sunday roast needed seeing to.
I was delighted with how the brownies turned out. It is at this point I have a secret to reveal - shhhhhhhhhhhhhh don't tell anyone, but I have magic powers. You see the photos, they are evidence that I did indeed bake a large batch of brownies, but they vanished - into thin air - never to be seen again !!! See, told you I was magic, there is not even a crumb left now to suggest they ever existed !
Finally ( if you are still here with me lol). My last few photos are from my newly tidy garden. Neil has bought me a fab new camera so all the photos on this blog post were experiments with my new toy. I am now the proud owner of a Leica D Lux 3. I am still trying to figure most of it out and to be honest all these photos were taken in auto mode but I am determined to learn a lot more about aperture and shutter speed etc, so if any of you have some tips I would be really grateful.
Hope you have all had a happy and restful weekend xxx
