I have received the first set of ATCS for my Bluebird of Happiness swap over at milliande. And they are are from my dear friend Trine in Denmark who as I have said before has a unmistakable Scandinavian style which I love.
Trine has used stamps and ink? to create wonderful cards.
Yesterday my husband wanted to go and see a Man about a Boat six miles further up the River Severn ,but to reach the mooring we had to go through some very narrow country lanes and I saw something I had not seen for a long time.Cows coming in from the field to be milked.We were running a little late so we could have done without the delay but it was fascinating to watch them walking past,it was even more interesting watching the teenage girl who looked as if she wished she was somewhere else.
my husband was quite concerned she was only wearing flip flops.
every now and then she would go and push one in the right direction
This farm is very close to where my son’s attended senior school and watching this yesterday bought back memories of the Foot and Mouth outbreak of 2001.
Some days the school had to close because so many fires were burning the carcasses of slaughtered livestock the air was acrid,and at night the sky was glowing red.
I hope we never ever see those sights again.
He got to see the boat.
I made a start on my sketchbook project journal yesterday ,to be honest my heart is not in this and I am not really sure why I signed up again. You are allowed to alter the journal as long as the dimensions stay the same and it is not more than 1 inch thick. So I decided to make a completely new journal with a 1 inch spine and I hope that is O K.
This was my 2 prototype covers I was quite pleased with the colours but I wanted to strengthen it some how. I remembered I had a Xyron in the back of the cupboard which luckily had a laminating cartridge in it. These would not fit so I made another cover in 3 parts ,laminated each piece and then assembled with eyelets.
My first thought was to try and find a small ring binder fitting to fit but if not I will do an concertina fold or I may just start all over again.
Watch this space.
