I had an order from a friend for some of my polymer clay earrings so I finished off her order and made some quick & easy boxes to put them in, using an SU die, which I stamped (SU stamps & ink):
I then made a birthday card for a (male) friend as I was seeing him that evening, I belong to an Amateur Dramatic Group & we had a get together at Jenko's Mongolian BBQ, which is very yummy and a good night out was had by all. I always find male cards hard to do, even though I do fairly clean & simple cards, and am not one for lots of embellishments I still find cards for men challenging, so dug out one of my favourite SU punches, the owl punch and made a card with him:
Once I'd done the owl, the rest came together quite easily (all SU except the papers - the name of which escapes me at the moment, but was some scraps I had left) and I added a couple of googly eyes. I'm entering this card into the challenge over at Addicted to Stamps & More, which is a Clean & Simple challenge.
So yesterday was tattoo day, I've been wanting another tattoo for ages, had one done on my hip about 8 years ago and have always said I'd get another but never seemed to get around to it. I started on a weight loss journey in August and am a firm believer in rewards for effort (of course LOL) so had promised myself that for my second stone lost I'd get a tattoo done on my foot, and here's a pic taken yesterday evening:
My foot is still a bit swollen in the pic so please do ignore the puffyness, but I'm really pleased with the result. I have to say though it hurt so, so much, I'd forgotten how much it hurt having a tattoo and I'm sure this was worse than the small one on my hip. It took longer, well over an hour and was really painful! I drove home, put my foot up, took some painkillers and pretty much stayed put for the rest of the day. It's still sore today, and I suspect will be for another day or two but it's not as bad as yesterday, thank gawd! I had to go out this morning to take the dog to the vet and it does hurt more when I'm wearing shoes, so I just hope it's a lot better by Sunday as I'm working and will be in shoes all day - ouch! But I am pleased I had it done - good job really as it's now a permanent part of me lol.
Thanks for popping in
