Chickensoup Recipe 12

Gosh, Friday has come and gone and with it another chickensoup inspiration. This time a poster inspiration by Clare

The picture of Audrey Hepburn made me think of some very cute clipart images I have from Lettering Delights and this is what I made. So quick and simple it is almost wrong to call it crafting.

The graphic and sentiment is simply printed out, the only little bit of actual crafting I did was to ink the floor and stamp it with my PTI damask stamp (another one of my faves!)

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy. A great card to make when time is tight, not to mention you can customise the message to suit just about anyone.

Come play along with your take on this recipe and to be in for a chance to win a prize.

A bit quiet

Yes, it's been a bit quiet here on the craft front, quiet even after I received some dies recently purchased from the States. They are still in their packaging lying on my craft table which is looking sad and forlorn.

The reason is this:

I have just bought myself a pair of these - seriously. At 41 I am taking up inline skating. Talk about your midlife crisis.

I have now spent two weeks investigating skates, investigating lessons, booking lessons, getting deliriously happy at the prospect of skating, getting seriously worried at the prospect of skating (and falling), scouting out where to skate, trying on rollerblades, buying rollerblades, taking rollerblades back because one foot felt "weird", getting replacement skate for weird foot ....

It is hard, time consuming work having a midlife crisis, really it is.

Who knows if I will ever craft again?
