Oh boy……it’s been one of those weeks!
I’ve been rushing around like mad making sure I have everything ready for my holiday, as I fly to Florida early tomorrow morning. My main concern was making sure that dad will be ok and has enough food and meds to see him through until I get home but big brother will be with him so I'm sure all will be fine.
I’ve not had much time for crafting either, although I did do my
Daring Cardmakers card and one other special project that I managed to get finished which fits in with the Double Dutch challenge
Rein has set the dare this week and her theme is Fish and/or Frogs.
Considering I don’t have any Frog related stash you can guess what my choice had to be!
I stamped my fish twice onto Dark Blue Stardust card, embossed them in Silver and painted them with Twinkling H2’s. I then cut the fish from one of the images and mounted it on the other using 3d foam.
Next I made the three fish charms by stamping the same fish image onto Shrink Plastic using Black Staz On. They were then painted with H2O’s as well before being shrunk.
I run my card blank through an embossing folder before layering the card with the fish image and some printed vellum.

The other project that I mentioned was a Chipboard book I decorated for a friend's ‘Special’ son’s 21st birthday.
Well, that’s just about it from me……off to finish my packing now!
I’ll see you again round about the 8th March when I hope to be able to join in all the challenges again and tell you all about the new stash that just happens to fall into my case. Lol!
