TLC Class - Faux Wood Grain

I'll be floored! Ha! Okay it's late, and that is as good as I could do.  Today was a lazy kinda day, I slept in a little, and was actually still in my nightie (note to self: buy a new nightie) when Betty (hey Betty!!!) came by.  I did venture out and get groceries (note to self: you are your own boss Di, don't shop on Sunday) it was busy.  I got my swaps all sorted and packaged up and I will head to the PO in the morning and get everything, including the brand new catalogs mailed. I wanted to get them out on Friday, but I was stuck at home with no vehicle since Jeff's truck was in the shop. 

They say the monsoons should be starting this week, we really need the rain, so hopefully we will get some, it seems like all the people in town get the rain, us country folk with all the dirt just get our dirt blown all over the place.  Jeff needs to replace the vent cover on the top of the camper trailer so I am hoping the rain holds off a day or two till he gets that done. (note to Jeff: hint! hint!) Gotta love me! Well he does...right?

Well just a quick card to show you all tonight, this is the second technique everyone will be learning at my TLC class in July. I love this technique and it can be done in any color really, I am just going for the standard wood grain, but imagine it in blues and stuff...yum.

DSCN8400 copy I popped the saw up a couple times on glue dots. Cool eh? My Poppa ( I love you Poppa, and miss you) was a carpenter and an electrician, and oh my gosh he could play music by ear, I would come home with my violin and practice and he would listen to me and figure it out on his own violin.  When Poppa died, he left me his violin, I treasure it, and want to take lessons again one day.  I don't know if I would remember how to even read music, and I know the violin needs tuning, but I can't part with it long enough to leave it anywhere for someone to do it...weird I know....anyway,  when we grew up, my Mum, and my sister Jax and I lived with my Poppa and Granny (hey Mum, tell Granny I got some light green TicTacs for her), and Poppa always said it was better to learn to do things on your own, we weren't rich so that is how it was.  Poppa taught Jeff how to do electric stuff when we lived in our old house, so I like this set, cause I know Poppa would love these cards, and I love the greetings that go with them.

Well I am gonna clean up my studio so I can start fresh in the make a mess again!

Have a great Monday, and thanks so much for stopping in, I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate it!
