10 days????

Cannot believe it is 10 days since I last posted! All of the days are now blurring together a little although we have been blessed with in the main good weather - just 2 days of drizzly rain - notably when the MEN arrived for the start of their 2 weeks! The ladies had great weather for their Championships!

So another full couple of weeks left for me - the rest of the National Championships (until Sunday) then off on another road trip for 2 more Celebration matches next week, a day at home then away to Yorkshire for the Northern Counties Championships. This will be followed by a trip to the Junior Mens' Internationals in Oxford AND THEN I SHALL BE HOME AND ABLE TO SLEEP IN MY OWN BED FOR MORE THAN ONE SINGLE NIGHT!!!!!! 

I had a bit of an inky session though on my day off but one is not finished so can't show it! This one was done also on Sunday - a CASE of one that I saw on Pinterest a long long time ago.
It is a mixture of a digital bird cage stamp printed in black onto white textured card  then over-stamped with a foliage stamp in Shabby Shutters DI. It is a tiny (old) stamp and I can't remember where it came from but know it was part of a set originally!
Used up some old striped cardstock (which I bought the last time I visited a craft show in 2013!) layered onto black, stamped the sentiment then die cut, added some black ribbon and a few black pearls.
Probably not everyone's fave colour combo but hey not bad effort considering it was just from a few bits I brought with me!

I am longing to get home properly as I have some new dies and stamps to play with.... roll on 17th September!

Not bad to be able to make a card while away on travel! And in my opinion it turned out beautiful too. Nice touch using two stamps, placing the birdcage over the foliage. Very elegant design and color combo.

A very clean crisp and elegant card Viv and love your choice of colours.

Decent start to the season, we even managed to watch the home game on the large screen over the pool - in evening temps of 28 deg !

I love this Viv, especially that lovely green colour.
You've been such a nomad this year, you will have nearly forgotten what you own bed feels like! :o)

Classy and elegant card Viv - I'm surprised you have time to craft at all, what with all the travelling and Bowling.
Good luck with the upcoming Championships

Hi Viv...brilliant card with restricted supplies! I can't find things that co-ordinate in a craft room full of stuff let alone a hotel room with a few choice bits! Your trips sound exhausting but i am sure they have their fun moments......but there is nothing like your own bed eh? Take care xx
