I think I have mentioned before how, in the UK, all the monthly crafting magazines come with a free gift taped to the front, often papers. I must admit, that my freebies usually go straight in the wastebin, they are never quite my style. Paper is my weakness and I can't resist buying loads whenever I am in a craft store. So, it was another rainy summers day here in the UK, and I challenged myself to do something with these papers, that were free with this month's PapercraftEssentials. These two cards are the result. What do you think? I feel that I must stop being wasteful and start using them in the future.
Spain is just as I hoped, sunny and relaxing. We are avoiding the beaches, you have never seen so many human bodies crammed so close together. We have a hire car that has an electronic dashboard which gives instructions in Spanish. Now we are typical British tourists who enter a country without even a rudimentary knowledge of a language, and expect everyone to understand us. Anyway, the lack of a phrase book is a problem, we were stuck for an hour last night trying to work out what the dashboard was telling us, before we could start the car. What was it saying? Something like ´take the handbrake off you arrogant Brits!!´
I had a great email the other day, from Cropstop asking me to be a guest designer for the month of October. It´s a great site, everything they show is in stock, and they ship really quickly, so I am very, very happy to be a part of the team. They have a new forum starting up in September too, that will be a fun place to go and hang out with like-minded friends.
