Sarcastic block. *

Now for a really simple easy peasy lemon squeezy project for today.

I have off from work for past 5 weeks and am due to go back in 2 weeks and the way I feel about a lot of people there provokes many statements within me but would get into trouble for saying out loud.  So to solve my dilemma I have come up with a sarcastic block to place on my desk.  Others will think it is an amusing novelty whereas I know the truth behind it lol

I started out with a plain pine block that should have been destined for something real pretty but unfortunately it fell into my hands and wasn't to be.  I didn't want a busy background behind the sarcasm so thinking cap on and I soon remembered I bought loads of cordination card about 3 years ago when one of my obsessions to won it all took hold.  I soon forgot I had it lurking in one of my drawers and decided to break it out of its murky surroundings lol.

I cut it to size, stamped the statements by Dylusions onto the smooth side of the cardstock,  distressed it using a craft knife, wiped black soot around the edges and randomly over the top lightly, screwed them up a little (bit like what my head feels like alot of the time lol) and finally spritzed them with water.  I wiped black soot round the edges of the block, stuck on the statements and sealed it all with modpodge.

That is it all done and how easy was that -and as the meerkhat says SIMPLES!

Now for the pics

Thank you for dropping by
