Another day, Another dollar

"One worthwhile task carried to a successful conclusion
is worth a hundred half-finished tasks"

Hi peeps

What a week it's been. Having decided to take myself in hand, (no not the diet yet), and "Seize the Day", the week has disappeared over the hill with it's a*** on fire. Not a great deal of time for crafting but I have, with little assistance, removed 12 doors, dismantled, sanded and repainted the garden bench, cut grass, planted planters, done the weekly shop, washed / ironed enough clothes for a battalion, baked muffins and tried to keep the sproglets from each others throats.
My holiday is now a dim and distant memory
Still have a house to decorate and a plumber, joiner, builder, tiler and carpet fitter to organise. Still there's always tomorrow.

Did manage to finish my neighbours 70th birthday card. The finished card is 30x11cms. I used my Gypsy (spent a day just looking for the charger and cables) and Cricut to cut the letters for the card (290gsm white). The cartridge is Plantin SchoolBook.

Unfortunately I can't remember who makes the golf ball paper. All other papers and dies are at least a couple of years old. As the box is quite large, I had to strengthen the edges and the base with strips of white card. I find using Glossy Accents as the glue helps to make it even firmer when it dries.

Well that's it for today as I've just realised I also need to make appointments with the dentist, doctor and optician. 

Big hugs
