41 crafty projects!
I've lots planned for my week off - I want to get my driveway power hosed and weeded (it's turned into a bit of a jungle!), paint my fence (weather permitting), a big flower show to go to, and the Giro d'Italia passes the end of my road on Saturday so I'm looking forward to that too! The whole country has gone pink in honour of it (I've never seen so many pink bicycles in shop windows!!) - I'll hopefully share some pics after the big event.
I had a busy week crafting this week. My boss asked me on Tuesday for 40 birthday invites which she needed by the end of the week. So Tuesday night was spent making a couple of samples and then Wed and Thurs evenings to make them. I kept them reasonably simple - just a DL size card with the party info printed on the back, clouds chalked on, grass border punch and an old Sizzix balloon die that I don't think I've ever actually used. Ah well, thank goodness they're done now. Never again! I'd like to add these in to the Top Tip Tuesday challenge - numbers
I liked the layout from Sketch Saturday as it gave me a chance to show off this beautiful DP. Memory Box corner die; woodware corner punch.
