Hope you are all well.
I am beginning to think hubby chose the right week to have off. We had beautiful sunshine whilst he was on holiday last week .. .. but this week we have had rain every day!! Not continuous rain but very heavy downpours in short spells .. .. must be late April showers!!!
A quick share of a card I am entering for the Penny Black Saturday challenge where the theme this week is "distressing".
This is something I am getting into more and more .. .. after being quite frightened by it at one stage.
Here is my creation
Image: Penny Black "4037K" Mixed Media
Backing Paper: Memory Stor
Woodware Punches: Flowers
Leone Em Pty Punch: Ash Branch
Distress Ink: Frayed Burlap
Vellum, brads, seam binding and embroidery silk from the stash box
I do love vellum but find it hard to attach sometimes. But because this creation had a nice "old" feel to it I decided to attach my patterned vellum with a few embroidered "french knots" .. .. .. how many years since I last did some of those? Phew ... too many .. .. must do more as these three whet my appetite. Makes a change from attaching it with brads I thought.
So that is it for my share of the day.
Another helping of The Apprentice tonight!! Woo hoo!! Two in one week!!
So now having seen my three chosen candidates in action I may have chosen a bit differently given the option again tee hee!! I have a sneeky feeling my candidate Tom isn't going to go too far .. .. I think he needs a good shave to start with!!!!
Anyway we will see how they do tonight .. .. but the right one went last night. I think we are going to see a few "strong and strange" personalities making an appearance over the next few weeks. LOL!!!
