"Smell the Roses"

Hello Blog friends, thank you for visiting today.  If you have popped by and have enjoyed looking please leave a comment so that I can visit you.  I love have a look at what you and others are doing.  There are so many talented crafter`s out there, they give so much inspiration.
Still have not had time to play with the goodies I bought on Saturday, I really do not know where the time is going  just now.
Hazel and I have a Craft Fair on Saturday.  Yesterday I spent ages out in the store where we keep a lot of our stock.  Sorted through things, have got them crated and ready.  Of course once out there I decided to have a bit of a tidy up.   I pop any boxes that I think I could re-cycle plus lots of other bits and pieces out there.  A case of out sight out of mind till the next tidy up!! .  I binned lots, the paper bin is almost full, the men don`t come till Friday.

Today`s card is one I made for a friend who has a birthday next month.  I might send it but you never know by the time her birthday comes I may have changed my mind.

Base card 8 x 8 from Joanna Sheen
Silver Mirri card
Paper and images from Joanna Sheen ATC Assistant CD
Each image is matted on to pink and Mirri
The flowers and leaves are made with Crealies Dies also from Joanna
Sick Pins and Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts

I do not use many CDs now but this image I really like and do use it quite often.   I have made lots of cards for customers using this image.

I am taking my car to Perth this morning for it`s Winter Service, I hate taking it for servicing.     Although I like shopping in Perth I don`t like the hanging on waiting for the phonecall to say my car is ready.  I suppose it is the feeling I am not in control and cant go home when ever I want.  Has to be done so better get on with it.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in I really do appreciate it
