Cruel weather

We shouldnt let the weather get us down.
Really we shouldnt.
But it does.
Bwah :(
When its wet and pouring with rain in JULY you kind of think we are destined for an eternity of the wet stuff. Infact Im going to build an ark. Whose aboard with me?
The back garden is flooded because the land our estate was built on used to be marshland of which was reclaimed in the 60's. The rain wont drain as fast as your average garden and its all overgrown. Bwah.
Belle and I are nursing cartoon network hangovers again. Ive let her stay up real late because, for some reason, cartoon network are running oldies like Johnny Bravo, The Power Puff Girls, Cow and Chicken and I am Weasel. Belle is delighted with these re-runs from her earlier memories. So we snuggle up on the sofa, I work on the lippy lappy and she giggles her head off. Cue Choc hotlate, snacks and cuddles and we are having the perfect hangovers from sleep deprivation the next day! But not tonight. We are up early in the morning.
Anyway, today I made cards to stave off the boredom of being restricted to indoor activities
but come the evening and the sun rears its familiar head - I felt a celebration coming on. I really did. My eyes light up and suddenly we feel perky. Hurrah - vitamin C is back. So we venture out for tea at our loacl pub where Belle gorges on lard and I eat curry. Here she is in the overgrowth that used to be the pub's garden. Whilst the weather has been cacka poo poo I have been teaching mysekf new tricks on photoshop. Im not as massive fan of cross processing actions but to save time, I like to make my editing more fluid. This is a new technique I have amassed so I will show you the before (taken in the shade so light was ploppy) and a quick fix booster to make it look a little more edgy.
Before.............
After...............
And needless to say those three dandelion clocks took a hammering too!
Tomorrow see's Belle being fitted for her secondary school uniform. She has to wear a blazer and they dont do her size so this is going to be fun... pray she grows 5 inches between now and september, will ya?

Kirsty those cards are fabulous!

Sandie said...

Those cards are fantastic, I used to make cards before I started scrapbooking, and now I can't make a half decent one for toffee LOL

Kae said...

My next door neighbour is a step ahead of you - he's been hammering and dyi-ing for ages now and I am sure he's secretly building an ark!! Just waiting for the animals to arrive two by two... Lol.

Love your cards :) x

Kirsty I would give anything to be someplace in the rain pouring down...but that is just because it is hot, humid, sticky and miserable here in Kansas in the US. But I love your cards and since I will make cards with child in house alone for maybe three more years? I enjoy looking at the work vicariously.

The Art Ark sounds the perfect solution.

Not too far away from you and today like yesterday is fabulous sunshine. Sorry don't mean to rub it in but Manchester and the surrounding area is renowned for rain especially when elsewhere is sunny so this is a first.

Love the cards. I am mising crafting and the thrill of it:(

Is the blazer wool? Will it wash? Would you like me to shrink it for you?

Brook said...

The cards and Belle are beautiful! I know how you feel about the weather. In Texas if rained almost every single day in June. My garage was flooded! This week has been so lovely. We have been out playing.

Sharp said...

That photo of Belle is just amazing! The colors just jump out at you - it's absolutely wonderful!

Cheryl said...

Okay so can I get real personal and ask which action/who makes it/where can I buy/beg for it?

Not a great fan of cross processing actions either but I seriously need to do something about my editing time too! any help would be so gratefully appreciated.

you can email me at cheryl (dot) peacock (at) iconz (dot) co (dot) nz
