On the way home from swimming lessons yesterday we were still chatting about the special screening of “Despicable Me” we saw on Sunday. It was soooooooo funny that I have all my fingers and toes crossed that it’s out on DVD before Christmas so that Santa will be able to add it to one of the stockings.
This conversation then led onto various other movies we’d seen in the past that we thought were hilarious yet hadn’t seen for ages. The likes of “Mars Attack” is one of our favourites – totally ridiculous but a good hoot. Anyways, with all this talk of movies I said (my mother’s kiss of death) “oh, I really hope it’s a wet week-end so we can pile up all these movies to watch whilst filling up on snacks!”
I thought this a fabulous idea but the scream of horror from Master Nine suggested otherwise. Turns out if it’s raining he and his father can’t play footie in the park. I quickly changed my previous wish to that of lovely blue clear skies but listening to the weather reports on the way to school this afternoon, then watching them after the news this evening… it would appear I wasn’t quick enough with my retraction and that my wish could be coming true… rain all week-end… dang!
Which had me thinking just how I would be using my time this week-end (I really want to lock myself in the Studio as, I feel the need, the need for 6×6’s…) which had me thinking about one of the beautiful new stamp sets from the new catalogue… Sense of Time. I particularly like the two sayings with this set – so very versatile and useful. Plus for just $39.95 this set makes for fabulous value (sorry ROC it’s only comes in Wood Mount though!).
The cogs stamp I really like also as it makes a great background. After stamping the clock face in chocolate chip, I then clear embossed it all. The background was created by drops of ink refills onto a metho soaked piece of felt then splodged over the white gloss card-stock – Polished Stone I do believe they call this effect.
What I love about this technique of Polished Stone is that you just NEVER get two pieces the same no matter how much you try. The button is from my own stash which I’m attempting to “down size” so if you are interested in a bottle please let me know as can I do a deal for you!
Joke of the Day:
Sawyer lights on, so I thought I’d drop by…
