My desk is a little different today...We are up at the lake and it is a scorcher! I spent the day with the quilters crafting group in the coolness of the Adult Clubhouse. We bring a packed lunch and each week someone brings cream for the coffee and something to share. Although the group meets from 9 am till 4 pm, I head over after aquafit, around 11 am.
I headed over with a tote bag of some bits and bobs...just enough items to make a few cards and a big bag of cherries, some cookies and the proverbial cream!
My worktop is not too exciting...I can only carry so much and still manage walking with my poles. So I only brought the bare essentials I needed to make some sort of inspirational cards. I managed to make 6 cards...but had a wonderful afternoon of chatting, a wee bit of catching up on the latest going-ons within the resort and lots of smiles and laughter.
Here is a little closeup of my production line for my next 6 cards. At the front left, you can see where I have just finished painting the edges of the diecuts I brought with me, and rubbing the paint across the top of the embossed chipboard shapes.You can see the bottle of paint in the middle. Back right has little golf ball boxes with some extra diecuts (unpainted) and odds and ends of embellishments I thought might work out.
Having a golf loving husband does come in handy at times...He always brings his golf ball boxes downstairs and hands them over like they are gold....lol They are great for dividing up and setting out various groups of embellies.
Here is the close up of the other side...I really meant it when I said I just brought a few things; 3 sentiments stamps for the inside of the cards, a wee acrylic box of bling, tape, pop dots, scissors
and a mini cutter...that is about it. Almost forgot...the el cheapo dollar store photo albums at the far right back, are full of pre-cut kraft card stock die cuts. I roll them off the Big Shot when I am bored and find them so handy to grab for a crop.
in the clubhouse...some of the husbands have offered to bar-b-que some suppers! What a bargain!
Others were busy making costumes for a 50s style do that is coming up next month. One was happy to model her poodle skirt...
Others were busy working on placemats...
And others were working on quilts of various sizes.
