Why are they so difficult? other than football or drinking images I really struggle with these. However, Polka Doodles to the rescue once again. I used my lovely Sugar Birdies CD rom for this one, for my stepson.
This week I bought some American Crafts sentiment stamps. They've got lovely little flourishes and labels with them. I also got the Martha Stewart stamp set where you just have loads of alphabets to use in circles/lines. Can't wait to have a go with these.
Busy thinking about a card for a colleague about to become a grandma for the first time, so that's my goal this weekend.
I'm off for some tea and reading now. Haven't bothered with a book for ages but have just finished the Winter Ghosts by Kate Mosse which is so beautifully emotional, about grief and coming to terms with the past, which can so affect the present. Am now reading The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver which is set in Mexico and is about a guy who works for Frida Kahlo and her husband. If you don't know who Frida Kahlo is, google her and get a real look at her artwork. She's a fascinating artist. I do have to remind myself sometimes about my love of literature and make some time for it in between making cards!
