2 Sketches 4 You: 16 Laura's sketch + Created by hand: pattern paper + Our Creative Corner: clear thinking

Our central heating failed to come on yesterday morning - the engineer came today, but a part is needed and won't be available till next Monday at the earliest. I spent most of today waiting around for him to come, wearing lots of layers and not really being able to settle to do anything. We're now beginning to warm up - the engineer lent us a fan heater and then a friend happened to ring and, as a result of John telling him about the problem, he turned up later on our doorstep with two sizeable convector heaters, so we can now warm more than one room.

That means that I've been able to do a little crafting.

I decided to make a card using Laura's sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You:

I used alcohol inks on the back of a Ranger memory glass, ran it through my little xyron adhesive (took the little cartridge out so I could put the glass through straight) and stuck this on some patterned oil on water paper. The papers, including the flowers, are DCWV pocket full of posies.

This card is also for the challenge on Created by hand - using pattern paper.

I've just discovered that the current challenge on Our Creative Corner is 'clear thinking' - add something clear to your project - so the memory glass is perfect for this.
