Hello, and welcome!
I've been hiding in my craft room......so quiet and peaceful in there...........and spent a little time going through my "bits 'n' bobs" stash.........ooooooooh....so many pretties! Ha!
Why was I hiding? Well, I'll tell you........
Because hubby is at home.....still!
Now, please don't get me wrong.....I love him, dearly.....wouldn't still be here almost 43 years after the nuptials, if I didn't........but, there's a limit.........and we've passed it!
We always have a lean time, after Christmas, because he works with outside broadcast units, filming outdoor concerts, race meetings, etc., and his part of the job is very weather-dependant. He works freelance, which means he's self-employed, and the work always dries up at this time of year....it's just an occupational hazard, and we try to prepare for it, financially.
He has an allotment, where he keeps racing pigeons, rabbits and chickens.......also grows a few veggies.....and lots of weeds.....so he spends a few hours, each day, mucking and raking, feeding and watering, and whatever else fellas get up to on these little plots of our green and pleasant England
But he's had no work since Boxing Day, (day after Christmas), and he is really fed-up....bored....fretful.
He keeps asking me if there's anything I need him to do........I would have whooped with joy, a short time ago!.......but, we've exhausted everything I would trust him with, (another story, right there!), so he mooches about, follows me around.......and it's driving me doolally!
Anyone want to hire a strong, fit 62 year old? He's tall, dark (well, lightening slightly in places, ha!), and very handsome, and can bring his own mug and Labrador....apply in writing, no reasonable offer refused!
Anyway, 'cos I was in hiding, it had to be a fast and simple creation........
I have quite a stash of gorgeous free papers and elements, so decided to use a bit of it up.....it's so nice to get my magazine delivered, and find a stack of free papers included........I think these were from a Nitwits pack. I just cut everything out, used chalk ink to outline the edges, and stuck to the card blank....the flower and bow are up on pop-dots.....and I added some white Card Candi, which is from Craftwork Cards......
I actually went back, later, and added a Happy Birthday sentiment, but then forgot to take a piccie........should have given the job to Hubby....haaa!
