Metal Guru with a twist....

I know it looks like I only post when I've got a twisty sketch to show you but life's a bit hectic at the moment but there is some relaxation time ahead as I'm off quite a bit in the school holidays. I'm working 3 days a week for 4 of the weeks which might not sound like much but it's a lot for me. Juggling childcare over holidays when you both work full time is an expensive nightmare so I've saved a bit of holiday time from work to lessen the burden and get some time off with my girl too :)
This is a photo I've bandied about all over the place at the mo. I bought a lens (with some help from my friend Jeremy) for Raymond for his birthday present and have since used it more than he has (sorry Raymond my love). But it's great and so easy to take good photos with it too....



I took this one of Rosie and Raymond on his birthday. They are gamers now. I live in a world of my own with Rosie occasionally getting a bit bored and wanted to come and cut and stick with me....


Speaking of RosieToes she got a cracking school report for her first year and my two favourite lines from it were as follows....

'Rosie should be very proud of her academic achievements this year'

and.....

'Rosie likes most arts and crafts especially cutting and sticking'

That's my girl ;)

Anyway, I made a card didn't I.... The twist for this week's sketch was metal, so here's my interpretation with a metal charm watering can :) Thanks to the Twisted Team for another great sketch to work to xXx

Twisty with Gold for Sketch #014



Such a lovely sketch over at Twisted for this week and the twist was 'gold'. Not sure if you can see it that well but I've used gold Stickles on my card. I got to use my Papertrey embossing plate which is fab, that was definitely an investment not an expense ;) I also used a Verve and an old Autumn Leaves stamps, the Labels Number 8 Nesties, Bo Bunny patterned paper and a flower that Jo sent me which is a dismantled necklace.
