Busy Busy Busy

We are in the process of redecorating our living room, I can say 'we' this time as I have really been pulling my weight, this weekend we managed to finish the lining paper we started previously and paint 2 coats of colour. Very frustrated with paint, choose a lovely light delicate shade of china blue and it painted on much darker, so I choose a lighter shade of grey for the other wall knowing what happened with the blue and that painted much lighter than the tin! Cannot win! However the blue has grown on me and with another coat of a darker grey I think we will be there.

Jason helpfully sprained his ankle on paint day, so all he could do was the cutting in on the skirting boards where he could sit on his bum, which meant I spent all day up and down on the chair painting anything that stayed still!

Also busy with scrapping and another large commission to do for The Scrapbook Magazine, but I do have a Twisted Sketches layout to share, the twist this week was sparkle (I forgot the twist, D'oh, so had to go back and add some stickles to my leaves, which you can't really see in this photo but it is sparkly sparkly!)

Mens Cards

Ummm well I would like to say that I have been rushed off my feet, but in truth I haven't, just taken one of those natural crafting/blogging breaks that we all seem to need from time to time and only crafted when I have had to for an assignment.

We are in the process at the moment of redecorating our living room, we are now in that awful stage where the room is all stripped, prepared and woodwork painted but we are having to live with awful blotchy terracotta paint that was under our wall paper. I have ordered new sofas that were so comfortable and squidgy in the shop that I may never get off them once they arrive! Can't wait!

Today I realised that it is less than a month til Jason's birthday and as I didn't want to be caught unawares I made him a little card - I hate making mens cards, just what do you do as the focal point? I choose a football and this card is made entirely on the Cameo, even the card blank. The white circle is embossed with one of my homemade embossing folders (chicken wire) and even the lettering was cut using the 'Aharoni' font on the cameo.

Well thats all from me today, see you soon!
