Good morning peeps,
I can't believe I haven't posted on my blog for a whole week!
I wasn't able to join my lovely Simon Says Stamp or Paper Play girlie's this week as I've been in so much pain I have been unable to sit at my desk in my craft room and finish my DT projects.
I am getting really annoyed with myself now & how I am so limited in what I can do at the moment, so I'm a right grump lol. I had no idea how painful a slipped disc is, I haven't even hoovered or slept in my bed for 12 days now, the doctor said a memory foam mattress is a definite no no for sleeping on with a slipped disc so I did as she said and tried to sleep on the floor which was hell getting down on the floor and I must have looked like a beached whale trying to get up off the floor so haven't tried that again lol. I'm not missing hubby's snoring but I don't half miss my hoovering lol.
Whinging over lets get down to business.
Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnight the challenge is
DECORATE A CHIPBOARD ALBUM OR BEER MAT (DRINKS COASTER)
Thankfully Jodie nabbed me some beer mats for this challenge when she did some bar work in the holidays so I had everything planned & die cut, stamped & coloured, embellies sorted etc all ready in a tray waiting to be put together and all I had to do was cut my designer paper and assemble while propped up on my sofa. There was going to be a fourth little mat attached but these 3 took a ridiculous amount of days to make & I couldn't manage to do anymore so it's stayed as a 3 beer mat wall hanging which I'm quite pleased with despite not looking forward to this challenge I really enjoyed making them lol.
As always those fabulous Tilda girlie's have some gorgeous inspiration for you, pop over and take a peek.
All images have been coloured with Copics, the flowers are a mix of Prima, Kort & Godt & Wild Orchid, all the edges have been distressed with Vintage Photo distressed ink, and the sparkle is Platinum & Stardust Stickles. I've used a Cropodile to set the eyelets, all images are cut out with nesties & the ribbons are from my stash.
