Today we had a small family celebratory lunch for one of my husband’s brothers who recently turned 50.
He is a teacher so Papersmooches Smarty pants seemed the right choice. I coloured the pencils with alcohol markers after stamping with memento tuxedo black ink. Ms A (11) had a lot of fun directing me to which combinations I should use! The sentiments are from Papersmooches Digits and the numbers are die cut using Papersmooches Numbers die. The sentiment was originally to be one panel but you may have guessed I needed to seperate to fit on the card front. What was that my Dad use to say? “measure twice cut once!” Anyway I’m sure if I didn’t mention you would all think this is how I intended the card to be.

Last week I had 2 occasions for sympathy cards.
I used Inspired by stamping Big Notes III and SU Botanical Builder Framelits.
In my last post I mentioned a recent trip to Bendigo.
Here is a pic of my purchase at Bendigo Woollen Mills…
At some time in the future a jumper for me, a cardi for Ms E and 3 pairs of socks. The light grey is the new Savanna, the darker grey is Aurora and sock yarn (one undyed and 2 dyed). My current knitting project is a jumper for Ms A (11) in BWM Bold Bamboo Rouge.
Until next time
