My blog has been a whinge free zone of late ! I was known for it ! ( Whingeing I mean ) Not a thing to be proud of maybe but it was always with a bit of added humour or at least I thought so ! Well enough is enough I have been quiet for too long ! So cover your ears or your eyes or whatever you need to cover but be prepared !!!!!!
Last night as I was crafting past my bed time as you do (my bedtime is now officially 3.00 am ) I was working on a little project getting really inky and messy which I haven’t done for a long time ,when all of a sudden and I kid you not I got the urge to do something with circles !!!. I abandoned my inky mess and started creating , I couldn’t stop I was having so much fun ! there was this little voice in my head urging me on chanting circle, circles , circles, anyway at 4.00 am I finally called it a night or rather morning . To be honest I was a bit dizzy from all those circles and the little voice had packed in , it was most probably dizzy too !
Anyway you all know what is coming next……woke up late and grumpy and checked in to see what Chrissie and Mandi the BIG BOSSES at Less is More had in store for us this week. CIRCLES !!!
I did a lap of victory around my living room whooping and hollering like a five year old two dogs in hot pursuit barking and panting ! Husband who was enjoying a peaceful coffee on the balcony thought we had won the lottery! Didn’t even try to explain, just started snapping photo’s writing my blog I was on cloud nine , ten minutes it was done or so I thought…………Always read the small print ! Mandie and Chrissie want circles not circle ! plural it was even highlighted !
That my friends took place 8 hours ago and since then I have been trying to communicate with ” The Voice ” to no avail it’s most probably in hiding ! Of course by the time I had finished my new circles I discovered I had a light problem……too much of it ! I used acetate and of course the two do not mix , twenty photo’s later of me and my I Pad reflected in the images !!!! It’s taken me all day to re do them I’ve got bloggers bum ,bloggers blindness, bloggers neck and all manner of blogger ailments and if I get told off by M & C there’s gonna be an awful lot of blogger crying going on I can tell you !
It is not obvious from the photo so let me explain , I cut a circle from my card , printed on to acetate a lovely circle within circle image and then matted it on to a beautiful piece of photo paper that I had printed an under water coral image. ( told you it wasn’t obvious ) I added the circles at the side cos I thought I might get disqualified for lack of the circly things . Below is the card before I added the side panel .
Again more acetate ( anyone know of any acetate challenges this weekend lol ?) more die cutting and lots of circly circles and what not .
Variations on a theme , by this time I was losing the will and my vision ! I actually did some stamping on the acetate !
Now this has nothing to do with this weeks challenge although it is circles but maybe not very CAS I just needed cheering up and something WITHOUT ACETATE . This happens to be an invite that I made for a childrens party the party details are written inside on the leaf.
For those of you who stayed awake or even read the whole post thank you you are too kind and for those of you who left I don’t blame you ! Phew do I feel better after all that……….of course not ! but there is a big G & T with my name on it so am off to drown my sorrows.
