Well I am cross. I wrote half a page of stuff, previewed, tried to correct spellings and the whole lot disappeared, so this is the mark 2 version, which is never as good as the first version.
This won't be a picture of my worktop because it is still laden with the stuff we brought back from holiday, a pile of clothes to be ironed and not a lot else. 
It should however have had on it the card I am planning for my sister's 70th at the end of the month, but I wanted to do a collage of her interests, singing, her garden, caravanning, grandchildren etc, but I spent most of the morning trawling through pictures both electronic and paper and realised that I have very little that is suitable for the purpose. All I have achieved so far is a picture of their caravan and a disgruntled hubby asking 'What have you been doing all day?' 
I still have a week in which so have emailed my niece and hope she will come up trumps with some good pics and with luck I will have it all finished and on my worktop next Wednesday. Meantime I will put up a picture of the last 70th card I made.
This was an easy one to do because I only knew her as a ballroom dancer, but can't claim that much ignorance about my sister.
Well now I am doubly cross because having posted this, I found the original one in drafts, but I am not changing it now.

I love the glittery texture you added to the girls gown. Blessings! Number 146 visiting from WOYWW

Mrs.D said...

thanks Arnoldo. The glittery texture was very simply added using Stickles gold glitter glue spread around rather haphazardly with my finger. Real messy stuff, but it was very effective. It is a technique I have used with other gluey stuff before with fairly good effect. I'm not very good with pencils and pens and paintbrushes, but spreading stuff around with my fingers I am in my element.
