Here are another couple of birdie cards that I made yesterday. Is it only me or do you all feel the need to make at least two cards when you find a design that you are happy with? (I realise that it could be just me!) I am also trying to use up colours that I might not normally - I'm loving my Core'dinations card pack in Nostalgia for example but there are colours in there that I'm not so keen on - like the orange and the purples/lilacs (hence the colour of the bird cage yesterday). Maybe I need to find some papers that I like that feature those colours to coordinate with the colours I'm not so keen on - hmmmm.
A couple of you have also asked about the new cross stitch project that I have now started, so here it is so far:
[in best Rolf Harris voice] Can you tell what it is yet?!!! It is going to be a lot harder than my Dog Lessons due to the subtle colour variations, and I think that I might change the pattern a bit, but hopefully it will turn out OK.
Alex finished her GCSEs this morning, so has now officially finished school (scary thought - my baby is growing up!) and she has eleven weeks before starting her new sixth form. Tomorrow she has to go into the new school for a Sixth Form Induction day, and she is waiting to hear from our local Forestry Commission Country Park where she has applied for a part time job, so fingers crossed for both of these please!
Hi friends and family! I'm Carole, married to Phil since 1991 with two children, one dog and one cat. We live in a lovely part of the world, on the south coast of England.
