Ice Blue Poinsettia

Evening peeps

That was a hard day at work.  Our busiest time is over the weekend, so it seems mad to leave the bakery with one colleague and a Section Leader in the afternoons.  The colleague has to get everything trayed up for the following day, so they have no time to do packing.  So it left me to try and pack, work brought in bread and serve customers, all in between phone calls and huddles,   I think that the contract base needs to be looked at.


Anyway, I have gone with a Christmas card tonight in the colour blue.  The digital stamp is called Christmas Poinsettia Girl from Lemon Shortbread and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Blue card stock
Digital patterned paper
Crealies Crea-Nest-Lies XXL No. 23 die set

Tattered Lace Christmas die
Red beads

Willow

Evening peeps

I have half my garden laid to lawn, it feels like I'm getting somewhere with it now.  Now all I need to do is keep my cat off of it and train him to use the patch that I have left as dirt.  I'm hoping that will sort out the issue of him messing, not only on my grass, but on the neighbours gardens as well.


Anyway, only a quick card tonight.  I have made a male card in shades of brown.  The stamp I have used is called Willow Tree from Inkylicious and I have used Adirondack Earthtones Espresso ink pad.

Spring Showers

Evening peeps

I have had a wobbly tooth for weeks now, it has really given me any pain, so I thought I would wait until my check appointment with the Dentist before getting it taken out.  Well there is no need to wait now, yesterday while on a break at work, it just came out, no pain or no blood, I have never had that happen before.  At least I haven't had to pay for it to be taken out.

When The Cows Come Home

Evening peeps

What a day.  It was the first day of being left on my own to run bakery, having not worked bakery for 7 years and with no up to date training, I was getting very stressed this morning.  It's a good job I know how to delegate.  I did, however, get some really good feedback this afternoon, which made me feel a little better.


Anyway, I haven't had a lot of time tonight, so I have gone with a very simple clean and simple birthday card.  The digital stamp is called Cow Trio from Bugaboo Stamps and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.

Life Is A Fairy Tale

Morning peeps

My son is a nightmare, every time he leaves to go back to uni, I tell him to ring when he gets there.  I said the same thing to him yesterday knowing that he would be back about 7.30.  I got a message from him at 11 last night, he had forgotten.  It's a good job I know what he's like or I would start to panic.


Anyway, I made this card late last night but didn't get the chance to post it.  The digital stamp is called Serenity Moondust from Polkadoodles and it has been coloured using Copics.
