No such luck ....there I was sitting in front of the screen at 11.55 praying it was something that I had no interest in ...wrong ....it was MS corner and edge punches ...the only thing that I think she does better than any one else. The set on offer was a great price and there was a choice of two. What a dilemma ..... I am terrible at making decisions ... so I bought both.
I keep looking at them and saying 'Was I mad?' ....yes ... but I think I will have loads of fun, which is the point ... and Jay and Vicki have already had ideas too. Please tell me some of you gave in and bought a set too ....maybe some of you even bought both as well lol.
Lastly, I though I would share how I saw a scene which I then committed to paper...well 'word' ... when the snow lay on the ground in early January .....
The stark silhouettes of the distant trees appear now to have had their leaves replenished, branches now filled with roosting black birds rather than the golden brown Autumn foliage, too far away to see whether they are actually Blackbirds or Starlings. I suspect they are the latter as it appears to be a large flock resting their wings while they scan the snow covered earth for an uncovered morsel that might be braving the Winter chill. Then as though the trees were hit by a gale force gust, the leaves soar high into the sky, leaving the branches bare once again.
The sky now begins to fill with a flock of passing seagulls, all with their own unique flight path …causing a kind of organized chaos over head. The under carriages of those that glide past have turned to silver … shimmering all the way up to the very tips of their wings. As they swoop down, one has to wonder why only the underside has been transformed … maybe it’s the erie light reflected from the snow-clad rooftops or is it just the low Winter sun that creates this magic....
Well I'm off now to play with my punches and some card scraps .... hope you liked my written observations.
Take Care xx
