"Just A Note"

Good morning Blog friends, here we are at the weekend once again.  Case of, seemed like I went to bed on Monday night, woke up and it is Saturday.  
Thank you very much for dropping by, great to have you visit.  If you have time please leave a message so I know you called, I read them all.
Busy this morning, I am not clever enough to work out how to get the Blogger to post automatically.  I did try it the other day but it did not work, will try again sometime.  
I am off this morning to the Hobbycraft Show in Glasgow.  Tell you something folks!!! with the weather yesterday, I have not slept good.  Was beginning to think we might not even get out of the village this morning.   We had flurries of snow all afternoon and evening, John Jnr was in Aberdeen and had a bit of bother getting back down the road last night.  Thankfully it has not come to anything, just thick, thick frost and freezing.   I am going with my neighbour across the road who I have encouraged in Card Making over the years.   I usually drive but she has just bought a brand new car and she said she would drive this time.. Think she just wants to show off her beautiful new car, fair enough I don`t mind being driven for a change.   If it was me, I would not be taking my nice new car, someone might bump it in the Car Park..................

Today`s card I made yesterday afternoon.  Got the Friday cleaning done, did the food shopping, the boys are here all day Sunday so had to get in plenty.  The one thing I always need is loads of Milk!! a milk cow rather than sheep in the field out the back would be much better.

Base card was a Scalloped  8 x 8 from Joanna Sheen till I cut the scallops off.  I felt it made the card look too fussy
White card which I pierced round the edge
White card embossed
I punched a border both sides of a piece of white card and lightly distressed
Piece of patterned paper from my Bit Box
Bit of lace from the Lace Box
I made a Fish Tail which I tucked under the lace
Sentiment done on the computer, cut out using a Spellbinder Die
I cut the same out in Pink card split it to give the white an edge
Pearls were white, I coloured them with a Promarker
The Rose I made as usual with Spellbinder Blossom Five Die
I added a few little flowers, leaves and a heart charm from my stash

That`s it for today
Off to get my things together for going
Tickets... Check!  Money ...Check! well I am sure you all know the scene.
They are the two most important oh! and Glasses to see what I am buying
Thank you for calling in I really do appreciate it
