I used one of the basic shapes, and folded over the point to make it look like a pocket, I added some black card behind the glasses and covered that with glossy accents - they look a bit smudged in the photo, it must be the light because they are lovely and glossy in real life. A bit of stitching, and a couple of the wavy borders from the machine and I was done. Papers are from a very old stack by Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is also an old one from Stampin Up
It's been a work in progress kind of day for me, I have stuff that I need to get done and dusted before my next little jolly outing on the 5th May - a trip to France and Belgium to visit the world war one battlefields, well, it won't be so jolly, I shall probably spend four days in floods of tears at the total waste of so many young lives.
Now I don't speak French, I regret not paying more attention in school, but I didn't. So I found this iPad app called Duolingo, and decided that by the time I went on this trip I would be at least able to say with some authority 'another gin and tonic please' or understand what I was about to eat. I was very enthusiastic for about two weeks, and kept coming out with bizarre statements to a bemused husband 'this apple is red' I would announce in French, with all the gravitas of the Prime Minister announcing a reduction in income tax. I can also tell you that the elephant is grey, and that the boy likes cake. All of this will, I'm sure come in very very useful around the battlefields of the Somme. I sort of lost interest after a couple of weeks, I wasn't sure how many grey elephants and red apples I would come across, so
the impetus vanished, and I shall just have to fall back on the time-honoured British way of speaking English very very slowly in a loud voice.....I'll let you know if that works, and if I see any elephants
See you tomorrow
