Beaded Face!!!

Still playing with the Triple Embossing. This card was for a lady's workshop on Monday........she has fallen in love with this Hampton Art face stamp so I promised we would use it.
I have stamped the face onto mountboard and then extended the bottom edge, finishing it off with a curve.
Colouring is done with chalks and the Accent Beads have been attached using the heated UTEE as a glue then more added over the top to hold them in place.

Well yesterday's class was an absolute riot. We had a fabulous time. Lesley and Jo are such lovely ladies. They both sent me the nicest messages when they got home. I don't know why I was so nervous.
Looking forward to the next time girls.

It's been very quiet at the shop today but it has been such a beautiful day outside that I expect everyone was out in their gardens. If I had been at home I think I would have been out in mine getting some tidying done.

After tomorrow I have four days off with Monday being Bank Holiday.....three guesses what I will be doing. Yes's still there waiting to be done and there was me hoping it would either go away or that I'd get some nocturnal visits from the elves. such luck.

Anyhoo I am off for a bath and a read then I might have an early night for a change.
Bye for now
