Recycled Packaging ....
I am still struggling to get back into the swing of things - it is amazing how you simply forget so many techniques that before the holiday were just second nature! So I thought I would try and catch up with the Card Challenges on Swirlydoos and this week's challenge is to use a piece of Prima packaging and some lace. I "loosely" followed the sketch!
I've been wanting to use some of this packaging for a while as it is so pretty. Everything else was in my scrap box, including all the flower petals and leaves - made or cut out for other projects but not used - so very quick to put together.
I woke at 6am this morning to the sound of torrential rain, but it really didn't sound like anything I had heard before. Once the fog (and it was thick!) lifted, we noticed that there had been a massive peat slide to the south of our house, down the hill and into the Loch. The "rainburst" has left a huge swathe of Shetland flooded, with more peat slides and a number of houses having to be pumped out. Our weather is certainly unpredictable these days!
