I have met myself coming back this week - can't believe it is almost a week since my last post and to all my blogging buddies I am really sorry for not getting round to visiting you - once the weekend is over I think things may become a little more calm.
Decided to finally blog a card which was made ages ago- the lunatic start to the summer bowling season has lessened a little bit , the 'madness of May' gets me every year! And we've been more so this year as we had the Bowls England Commonwealth Games Squad come for practice against us as part of their preparations for Glasgow and on Thursday the Bowls England President brought a different team to play too. Have some great pics - but here's one of the club side (I'm the first in white in the front row in the middle) and the Commonwealth squad -
I have made nothing at all this week and my stash is getting seriously low so I really do need to get stuck in- there's just not enough time!!
We had a County game yesterday and this weekend I am away supporting the other half whilst he plays for County (today) and Club (tomorrow) - but at least the sun is shining!
I printed it onto hammered cardstock for some texture, masked off the birdie and inked the background with distress inks, then painted the bird and added a coating of glossy accents.
Cream base card, and matted used some left over DP from the 'not big enough to cover an entire card' drawer, hiding the gap with some dark brown grossgrain ribbon!
Image matted onto same scrap card and fixed on with 3d foam pads
The ivy and bird house were also cut from the left over drawer and the two wooden buttons were from my stash.
Thanks for visiting and bearing with me whilst I chase my own tail -will try and visit you all very soon.
