Worrying about her and being a bit distracted, I tripped on my landing, after having a wash ready to go visit her, and hurt me a very lot!!! So that's what it looks like tonight!! PS Miranda finally came out of hospital on Sunday afternoon, and has to lay up for a fortnight, then we'll go from there!!
And after the fall?? Well some art and a desk - courtesy of the wondrous Julia at Stamping Ground headquarers... because that's really what you came for eh??!!
Laura Denison, of The Paper Trail. I have the chipboard all cut here - took AGES with my gammy hands, especially after I fell!! - for the base of the suitcase. Below and right, is a view of the lid all done. My distress ink browns-drawer is sporting some of my new markers!!!! YEY!!!
duh!!! obviously!! - then ...
Along the lid aperture, I set a row of ball chain, dipped in alcohol inks to age and colourise it, and I shall do the rest of the outside bits tomorrow - when I have finished my grandson's card for his birthday on Saturday... he will be 8 and I can't believe it...
He LOVED the black border with all the holes - an afterthought on my part, when his mommy said the holes in his one were "on purpose and part of the design" !!?? Good ole distress inks and smooshing made the multicoloured background simples, compared to his colouring in with crayons!!
not sure of the spellings!!! he is the former and Matthew is the latter - and it suits them!!!! tee hee... I will blog the finished card after he gets it... Saturday will be hilarious - we are supposed to be Laser Questing and Bowling with his little mates with a mommy who can't walk very much and my demented mother!!! Whoopy doo, that WILL be fun... Anyway, let's hope this next week will be a little less eventful for me and very lovely for you... Thanks for coming and commenting an keeping me sane - well, relatively!!!
Love and light
