- For Your Inspiration - FYI#22 - photo inspiration and I used the colours
- Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL174 - sketch layout
- Cooking It Up with Katie - CIU#88 - where they would like to see an embossed heart
I think the inspiration photo is just gorgeous and my initial thoughts included a tree with golden leaves, but it just wouldn't come together properly. And today, after I saw my friend's note about feeling poorly, I decided to make a card for her - not a specific get well card, but one to let her know that I'm sending hugs and good wishes. I was going to over stamp the long text panel with a message, but decided to keep things simple and put the sentiment in the heart. My heart has two forms of embossing - dry via the Spellbinder dies and heat on the sentiment. I'll be posting this to Kathy in the morning.

It's been a really good day. I set up the ironing board in front of the TV and got it all done while catching up with some episodes of Criminal Minds! It really does make things go much quicker. At lunch time I saw the last ¾ hour of the Murray v Djokovic semi-final at the Australian Open. From what I saw it was fantastic - at one point I thought it was all over for Andy, then he came back and almost made it. He really pushed Djokovic all the way. Jonathan is still feeling quite jet-lagged - it'll take a while before he's back on UK time. Now I'm going to try and find a channel showing the European Ice Skating championships - it's proving really difficult. The championships are being held in Sheffield!!! I would love to have been able to go. That's all for now. See you tomorrow.
