When will common sense prevail and they'll stop building on flood plains and they'll realise that there was a good reason that rivers and streams were regularly dredged in the past? That old saying "A stitch in time saves nine" springs to mind, eh?
It might not solve the problem entirely, but surely it would help. We seem to lurch between deluges like this and water shortages like a couple of years back atm
Kathy climbs off her soapbox.
Over on The Daring Cardmakers today Leo has chosen the February colour combo - and it's a bit like when the rain stops and the sun comes out with a grey, yellow and orange palette that we've all enjoyed using this week. The blog looks gorgeous and definitely worth a look.
|The Sketch File|
I've used the February LO from The Sketch File for my card, I've just moved the feature area down to the bottom corner.
I couldn't decide on the "where to put the sentiment?" question - so I left it off.
Still not sure that it doesn't need something else though...
Materials and Tools
2 x Grey-green papers from MME "Miss Caroline
Ribbon and Twill tape
Lokta paper for flower
Grey flat backed pearls
SU Blossom punch
2 x plain circle Nesties
I love using the handmade Lokta paper for flowers, this peachy-orange stuff I bought in France a few years ago and is a bit tricky to cut because the thickness varies so much between tissue-thin and bulky bumpy bits but I think it's worth preserving as the end result is so soft and pretty
