WOYWW 71 a day late

We came back from Maidstone on Tuesday and yesterday seemed to go by in a flash, so I didn't get round to WOYWW 71. So this is a day late - should now be called WOYWT instead.

Having taken on a commission to do 300 Christmas cards - designed on computer and printed - before we went away I printed some and didn't realise until I went to print on the other side that ink had smudged from each one on to the back of the next.

So now I'm printing them off and putting them around the room - will be starting on the bedroom next - and hoping they will dry. The card has a sheen to it, which is why they are not drying - they're not actually wet or even damp, but cause a bit of a smudge if they are piled together. I think I might have to give each one a blast with the heat gun.

So this is my workspace today - notice that I've left a bit of a space so I can still use the computer and perhaps do a bit of crafting at some point - although I need to take each card off the printer individually, so I can't just leave them.

Back to the printing!

A little bit of holiday shopping

While in Maidstone I managed to find one or two (or three) craft shops and it would have been rude not to have bought something, so this is what I managed to get:

and, yes, there are some promarkers there. I'm really a copics girl, but I couldn't resist! I think my favourite purchase is the large postcard stamp.

Salt: God's righteousness

Kim chose the topic for today's Salt challenge - you can read what she said here and also see the lovely crafting of others in the team.

Having just returned from a week in Maidstone, I reflected a bit on our visit to All Saints church - such a walk down memory lane for John (you can read more about it here). This seemed to tie in very well with the verse I chose for the theme:

'I will give thanks to the Lord because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord most high.' Psalm 7:17

As usual, if you click on the picture it will enlarge and you will be able to see what I've written - you can also click again to see it even more clearly.

The paper is making memories 'music edges findings' and the lettering and scallops etc are PM Hampstead. The text from Psalm 7:17 was printed on my dymo letratag.

We would love to see what you are prompted to create for this theme - please leave us a comment on Salt with a link to your project and we will come and look.
