Where Did the Weekend Go?

Beer21a

Ok! Where is he? The culprit responsible for stealing my weekend?

One minute is was Friday and then Saturday I was in Olney doing a dimensional Grunge card class ... where I had an absolutely fabulous time I might add! Thank you ladies! Then it was Sunday ... dinner with my babies ... the next thing I knew ... the alarm was going off, ringing in a new week! How time flies!

I bet this week flies too ... I have the lovely Dan coming to stay ... lots of Crafting going on there and a possible trip to Ikea ...  have n't been for ages ... can't wait to get in the markets place and see what I can buy to alter :0) Saturday in Olney and Sunday my Crafting birthday party! I shall be 28 :0) OK ... Who laughed? ... Out loud too! ... How rude :0)

I keep getting emails about my creations ... I am getting really bad at putting any details in my posts at all regarding the crafting ... so today ... the start of a whole new week ... and I am going to do my best to be as clear as possible :0)Beer21

Beer mat ... yes it's definitely a beer mat ... of the IPA variety ... covered in grey card and stamped with the lovely Wendy Vecchi plaid stamp ... then coloured in Rusty Hinge! The large flower head is Grunge paper covered with a text paper ... cut with a Sizzix die and coloured using Rusty Hinge. The bottle cap ... which I adore is Dijon metal ... stamped with one of Wendy Vecchi's bottle cap stamps and cut with a nestabilitie ... then shaped with a paper stamp. Between you and me ... the bottle caps are my absolute favourite ever Wendy Vecchi Stamps ... LOVE LOVE LOVE them! The bottle ... another Wendy Vecchi stamp ... this time stamped on white card and coloured using ... tumbled glass distress ink. The leaves are WV stamps ... can you see a theme going on here ... stamped in Olive archival onto Grunge paper, cut out and coloured with Forest Moss Distress Ink. And finally ... if you are still awake ... the pin clip and the ticket are both Idea-ology from Lord Tim of Holtz. You know Tim ... the man that could heal David Beckhams Achilles tendon in time for the world cup with just a smidgeon of Glossy Accents and small sprinkling of perfect pearls!

Blimey ... no wonder I stopped telling you how I make these things ... this post reads a bit like War and Peace :0)

Have a good week y'all!

LOL - you have me in hysterics - thanks for the distructions on how to make this.

I can just see Tim on the sidelines of a footie match, with his case of goodies, getting out the Glossy accents, etc - hysterical!

Helen said...

Oh, you make me laugh so much! I love your beer mat today, it's amazing.
I reckon Lord Tim has been working his magic on Liverpool tonight as we've just scored 3 goals in 10 minutes. Yippeeeee.

Great piece Linda, and thanks for sharing the details. It wasn't a long post, a'tall, I read it straight thru. This would be just a comment on my post, lol!

Shazza said...

Angelnorth said...

How come pubs round here only have boring square beer mats, that's what I want to know and despite your little epic there, you haven't answered that one have you? Huh? Fab piece, love all your dimensional detail as usual. Have fun with Dan!

LynneForsythe said...

FABULOSO girlio!!! another AMAZING creation by the ULTIMATELY CREATIVE Linda!!!

Paula Gale said...

oh you do make me smile - you could put a can of beans on your post and i'd still come to have a look just for your words - although the added bonus is always the great things you create.

Do you think I should suggest to my surgeon next week that he should have some glossy accents on standby?? tee hee!!

Paula x x x

Debi said...

Awesome piece. Love it!!!

voodoo vixen said...

Love your stuff... as always! And I just figured out why... its the colours you use and the fact that everything is 3D!!
Hope you have a fab time with Dan the Man and don't spend too much at IKEA!!
