Getting better

Not so long between my posts now that the weather has gone down hill.  More time for crafting
And boy have I been busy this week, 4 commissions and a wee project.

One of the commissions was for a wedding card, remit purple and white, to fit in an envelope and personalised.  I used a LOTV image and a card from my stash, spellbinder die, cannot find the packaging at the moment, printed sentiments on PC a few pearls and wallah a wedding card.

My neighbour Leigh is a pure nutter and any excuse for a "Girls Night" and she is there planning the event.  She came up with "P in the Dark" instead of "T in the Park" (Music festival held each year not far from us) and she enrolled everyone in to doing their bit, food, posters, security passes etc.  The event was to be held in our other neighbour's garden, gazebos were put up, a shed was utilised as a chill out zone, a photo booth and guess what, typical festival weather, it poured down.  Our spirits were not daunted and everyone turned up in festival garb and wellies, and a great night was had by all.  Ages ranged from kids to 66 year old (me).  I was tasked to come up with something different and also to produce moustaches and glasses for the photo booth cut from files on the Silhouette Cameo.  I racked my brains and came up with a memento of a wine  glass with P in the Dark for every one who attended, around 16 braved the weather.

Just wish I could convey the atmosphere at the event we all have a fab time and it may be repeated next year.

Hope I have not bored you all but it's these girls who keep me young and on my toes.

Take care.

    1. They are not painted Ang but vinyl cut out with Silhouette Cameo, a bit tedious weeding out the little bits after cutting but nice when stuck on to glasses. First time I tried using vinyl but I can see me trying some wall art next or adding phrases to wooden plaques. Watch this space.
