Hello there! I feel like it's been ages since I spent a good chunk of time in Blogland! The last couple of weeks have just flown by. I was busy in the Craft Cave with a special order for 75 cards so there wasn't much time for challenges. I also did some extra shifts at work and we all took part in a dental course yesterday. I confess that I was dreading it but it turned out to be pretty interesting thanks to an enthusiastic and inspired teacher.
Today I finally managed to play along with some challenges. I used the colours from The Colour Throwdown and the colour blocks required by CAS-ual Fridays to make a bright and fun Easter card. The bunnies are embossed in white and then outlined with the same colour as the cardstock to make them pop a bit. I'm hoping that this week will be a bit calmer and that I'll get back to catching up with everyone and making some more card of course!
Before I go I just had to share the other project I got up to this weekend. We've been having problems with our washing machine and after a bit of research I discovered it's a well known issue for the model and there's a recall on the computer board. Unfortunately, being in Bermuda, I can't just call up Whirlpool and have them send someone over to replace it for free like I could if I lived in the US. So I figured out what the replacement part was, had it shipped in and Luis and I replaced it ourselves. And guess what? It worked! Whoop whoop! I was so proud of us especially as it would have cost up a fortune to find someone to come and replace it for us. Maybe we ought to start a side business...
