"Just for You"

Wednesday 29th August 2012
Good Morning Blog friends, thank you so much for calling by if you have time please let me know you visited by leaving a little message.  I love to read them all.

I have had terrible trouble getting on to my Blog this morning, however we are here at last, I hope.  Might just all disappear when I press the wrong button.  I am talking from experience here!!!!

My card for today is very plain but I like it, did this a few days ago only finished it off yesterday.  I have decided to get all my half done projects finished before Hazel and I go off on our annual holiday on Sunday.  Did you know I have a first class Projects Half Done that is................!!

Base card approx 8 x 8 Lilac
White card pierced edges, I quite like to doing this and have almost mastered getting it in line
White card embossed using Spellbinders M-Bossibilty Folder "Paisley"
Die cut using a Heartfelt Die from Crafter`s Companion
Threaded Lilac American seam binding through top of the die
A four loop bow done on my Bowmaker
Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment done on computer matted on a little piece of Lilac card

I love using American seam binding for trying multi loop bows it works so well.

That`s it for today off to have a lie down after the struggle getting this on.
Thank you for calling by it is much appreciated.



  1. Hi Patricia,
    I wouldn't call your card today plain far from it.
    It's very beautiful. What I would call a classical card. Love the colours you have used. You should enter this one into Lindyloo's almost white challenge. Have a great crafty day everyone.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  2. Hi Patricia, that is definitely not a plain card, the monochromatic colour scheme might lull you into believing it is, but wow what a fabulous amount of detail you've got going on. Totally Gorgeous!

  3. Beautiful card. I do love the effect you get with your piercing, it is very well done. I am taking the lazy way out and picking up the occasional die with piercing on it as I like the effect but couldn't achieve it in a month of Sundays. Happy crafting. Flora

  4. Stunning card Patricia. Love the white background with just pops of lilac - very elegant. The embossing and the dies you've used are stunning. Definately not plain. Enjoy your day
