"Happy Retirement"

Monday 20th August 2012
Happy Monday morning, I am so glad you have stopped by to visit
Weather today is very low cloud, dull, damp and rather miserable at the moment, I am sure it might clear later, Oh! do hope so

My card today is another order, had to be kept flat for posting.  Regular visitors will realise that I really do not do "flat" cards.  However I managed to get some movement on this one with my leaves. The couple the card is for are retiring together, are keen gardeners and he is a Bird Watcher

Base A4 soft white hammered card folded to A5
Leaf mask used to emboss white matt which I lightly distressed 
Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Die

Leaves Creallies die from Joanna Sheen
Sentiment done on computer

I love doing orders, I get the customers input as to what they want but the best bit I like to hear is they want it in a box..................... Wow! then I can go to town on embellishments

I use lots of Spellbinder Dies and Folders which I get from  great prices, excellent delivery and free P&P  They have all the new dies, some are on pre-order but delivery dates are within this week

That`s it for today, and thank you for looking in it is appreciated
