Tis the season......

For colds and flu. I have a streaming cold and everything in the studio that I start seems to go wrong. I think it is something to do with concentration. I must tell you about the double sided Andrex puppy tape! I have the Bethlehem stamp set and dies on my table, still at the playing stage with this set. I had cut 6 'streets' of houses' in the beautiful champagne foil. (That is certainly one to stroke!!!) I had them laid out on the desk infront of me. Now this was the third project.....
The first one was a decorated candle, I started it then found I hadn't any grease proof paper so I used a sheet of vellum.... don't it doesn't work, not only did I end up dripping wax on the carpet the vellum also lifted off a thick layer of candle! disaster 1.
Next I thought I would give the lantern I had found on Pintrest a go. Got everything out did a bit of stamping went in search of the die for the top and bottom ... couldn't find it. I think it may be one I have sold as its no longer in the catalogue, so 20 mins fruitless search nothing completed, disaster number 2.
So back to the lovely champagne foiled die cut streets. A new roll of double sided tape, I was struggling to find and lift the end of the tape suddenly there it was but the roll slipped dropped to my table rolled sticky side down.... HOW did it do that.....right across my die cuts it was like that old Andrex puppy moment with the toilet roll and no I didn't laugh the air was blue. Good job I am on my own in the studio!. Whats more I couldn't unstick it so 6 die cuts went in the bin with a mangled ball of double sided tape :( :( :(

Today I have actually managed to make 2 cards, it has taken 3 attempts but they are made thanks to an idea from Dawn I didn't use her measurements but it is her idea. One card two colour-ways and the ideas are now coming so there will be more of this set during this week.

Definitely a sense of achievement after three days of disasters. And I always enjoy a bit of daubing!
