I nearly decided to skip the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, but I didn't want to be beaten by something as simple as glue dots!! The first objective was to get some glue dots as I don't use them at all. The next was to come up with a half way decent design idea - and I'm not at all sure that I've done that!! I've gone for a very simple random dot scheme using different size glue dots. My main issue with the dots is that they aren't circular and when you press them onto the card they tend to lose their shape even more. They are very sticky and the glitter stuck really well. I added a simple transfer sentiment which goes with the twinkling glitter!
Accessories: Glue Dots - 12mm, 6mm, 3mm; Martha Stewart Glitter - Cinnabar, Golden Beryl, Carnelian; Hot off the Press transfer; Card - 3" × 3"
As I had the glitter out, I decided to make another card for the Play Date Challenge - the colours are just so lush!! I decided to use some lovely star stamps and use glitter to colour them in - but I've still kept to a fairly clean and simple design.
Stamps: See-D's - You're the Star
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Martha Stewart Glitter - Cinnabar, Golden Beryl, Carnelian; Card from stash
As we are childless this week, Jonathan and I were able to go out last night to the weekly Camera Club meeting which, in the summer, are held in a local pub. Jonathan had a great time catching up with friends he hasn't seen for ages and they always make me very welcome too. I've decided it's time to try and improve my photographic skills, so I'm going to join the club this September when the club restarts its normal meetings. I'll have to organise a babysitter for Kathryn - but it should be fun!!
Today we're going to explore along the coast, stopping to take photos along the way and also visiting some of the local towns - I might even find a craft shop or two!! Keep your fingers crossed for good weather. See you later.
