I see someone else has joined us over the weekend .... Hello and Welcome to my latest Follower, it's always nice to see a new face. Thank you for taking the time to visit.
The Giveaway prize has also been claimed ..... and the goodies will be on their way to the winner later this week.
Well, we have the keys to the new place ........ the move begins now! We picked them up on Saturday morning and everything's fine ....... the house is just as we remembered it ..... BIG!!!
We spent most of the weekend shopping for more furniture to fill the place, in between packing and moving boxes that is. Boy do we have some stuff ..... it took all day yesterday just to empty the loft!!
We finally have a sea view too ...... you have to go up to the roof terrace to see it mind, but ..... what a view! It'll be a great spot for watching the Red Arrows when they come over, which is usually during the TT. And of course we'll be able to watch the firework displays from up there too.
This was Saturday afternoon's view ........
There's power up there as well so ..... I can see quite a few relaxing evenings spent up there, and I can grab a glass of something chilled, plug in the old laptop and blog away in the sunshine! You'll probably get sick of seeing this view ...... sorry!!!
Anyway, before I get on with more packing this morning I have a little something to share with you for the current Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge.
This is my second entry in the challenge, and my first attempt at creating the Bokeh effect, which seems to be very on trend at the moment .... see what you think
I randomly coloured a piece of white cardstock using Distress inks ..... I think the colours were Cracked Pistachio (my new favourite colour!), Shaded Lilac, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry. Once the inks were dry, I cut myself some acetate stencils using various sizes of circle punches, and applied white pigment ink through them over the top of the Distress
I let each layer dry before going over the top with the different sizes of circles and I love the result.
I finished off with my sentiment (Kaiserkraft) and added a few dots of crystal glitter for the touch of sparkle!
Well that's it from me I'm afraid ...... possibly for the rest of the week!
I don't think I'll have much time to spend in the old craft room this week, plus it's looking a bit like a disaster area at the moment, there's stuff everywhere ....... more than usual ..... finding a place to work isn't easy! So unfortunately no playing along with this week's blog challenges for me (sigh!). I do still have my tag to do for Tim's 12 Tags so you never know, if I can manage to squeeze in some time to play, you may just hear from me.
Thanks for popping by ..... have a great week whatever you're up to.
Cheerio until next time
