Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant Hapus! Happy St David’s Day!
So, here are the finished cards using my Let’s Set Sail stamps:
I stamped 3 in Real Red and 3 in Starry Sky, and then punched them out using the Sailboat Builder punch. I used a template so I could stamp them out so they’d fit in the punch correctly and I didn’t waste any cardstock:
I punched a piece of cardstock and stamped onto my white card through the gaps. Am I making sense? I had to hold the card still with one hand whilst stamping with the other but, if I’d thought about it, I could probably have used my Stamperatus to do the same thing. I’ll try that next time.
Kevin & I spent last Saturday doing our Level 3 First Aid course. Golly, it’s hard work and my poor old arthritic hips and hands struggled a bit with the CPR, but we both passed. So that’s us qualified for another 3 years. Kevin volunteered to be ‘the body’ to show how to put someone in the recovery position. The instructor tried to move Kevin’s left arm up but, because of his metal pin, he couldn’t do it. But the instructor said that you might find this in real life and you shouldn’t try to force it.
I had a nice long soak in the bath that night and did something I don’t normally do; I read a book in the bath. I will sometimes listen to an audible book or watch a YouTube video on my phone perched on the bath rack, but rarely read an actual book in the bath. I think it’s the Librarian in me that stops me. (I was a Librarian in Weston-super-Mare, but I’ve been an ex-Librarian for longer than I actually was one!)
I’m a bit late with this today; we had a Church Council meeting after Tea & Toast so have only just got home. I thought you’d like to see what I’ve been wearing today to celebrate St David’s Day:
Hwyl am y tro! xx
