I'm not long back from a visit to the new Hobby Craft shop that's opened in Truro this week, with lunch at a very nice pub thrown in after - thank you DH! The shop was busy, very busy, and although there were some nice bits and pieces, especially in the scrapbooking area, I didn't come away with much new stash. I was treated to a mini hot glue gun which has been on my wish list since using one at the Kernow Stamper's fair in the summer, but apart from that, a few packets of gems, some squares of felt and a magazine, that was it. The prices were a little steep, there were quite a few Marianne dies on the shelves but you can certainly find them cheaper on line and the same went for most of the named brand items.
I forgot to schedule a post for today, to be honest I'm feeling rather tired again at the moment and even crafting is beyond me. Fortunately, this little robin is one I'd coloured earlier in the week and he simply went together with Marianne diecut LRO234 called Petra's square frames. I've layered the two white squares onto silver mirri card then 3d mounted them to the base card. Three plain snowflakes cut from silver using one of the dies in set LRO124 finished things off.
Charisma Cardz have a CAS theme challenge so I can enter my card, I think it's clean and simple enough. And, if you remember my rather plain CAS one layer card for last week's LIM challenge, well, I just had to tart it up a little bit:
I am going for a bit of a rest now, browse my magazine and decide what I'd like to make next, but the actual doing might have to wait for another day. Whatever you are doing, enjoy! and I look forward to catching up with you again very soon.
