...with all the usual challenges and parties this week. Its been a busy time, getting ready for our trip to the cottage next week. But I got told of a couple of days ago for not posting my inchie or tag, or taking part in White Wednesday, Treasure Hunt Thursday etc. Well, it wasn't so much a telling off, as a concerned enquiry about my wellbeing. Bless.
I had a bit of time this afternoon, so I made this week's inchie and the Tag Tuesday challenge tag as well. The inchie prompt was SWEET. I think my muse has already gone off to France, lol, because it took me ages to come up with something. Whilst I was making my cup of tea, stirring in a spoonful of sugar, I had my little lightbulb moment - Sugar, thats sweet! I used a sweet little vintage image of a sugar ad, coloured it in a little and used white German glass glitter for the spilled sugar -
Once the inchie was done, I started on the Tag Tuesday challenge. Now this one really was difficult, because the word for this one was SUMMER and, oh, there were just about a million things that immediately sprang to mind. I didn't want to go with the summer on the beach theme, nor could I really go with the summer in the French cottage theme, so in the end I decided to use the one thing which always means summer to me - a garden filled with roses in full bloom. I printed out some rose images, cut them out carefully, and arranged them on a tag covered with music paper. Made a little banner, and that was about it, quite simple, but you can almost smell the beautiful scent of the old fashioned roses -
At least I have managed to catch up with a couple of things, wish I had the time to photograph things for White Wednesday and Pink Saturday, but alas, I have way too many things still to do. Also, I am really missing my Nikon camera, this little point and shoot one just isn't up to it, sigh. And I won't get it back before we go to France, which means I will have to manage without it for TWO whole months! 4 -5 weeks for a repair, I think thats quite disgraceful especially as it is the 4th time the darned thing has gone wrong. Ooops, I am ranting, lol.
I am linking the post to Every Inchie Monday HERE
and to Tag Tuesday on Blog Challenge Garden HERE
I am toddling off again now. I'll try and get a couple of posts in before we go, but can't promise.
Have a great weekend, toodlepip xxx
