"Happy Birthday"

 Here we are again Blog friends another day in Bologland.   I hope you are all dry, safe and well. 
 I say this almost every day but I really do appreciate you calling by and leaving such lovely comments on my work.  I love to "Play with paper" showing you what I create makes it fun.  I like to pop over to see what you guys are up to, it gives me inspirations in times of need.
Yesterday was an "Up and out Early day"  boys off to school, got home had some breakfast and promptly broke a front tooth..................!!!!  Phoned the Dentist, luckily she had just had a cancellation.  So tooth fixed and looking good again, that`s the tooth not me.......................
Today I am off to give a talk to a Ladies Club.  I have done this for a few years now always just about this time.  I have done the Fancy Parcel Wrapping, Card Making, etc:- this time they want to see how I make the Beaded Heart Pendants.  Everything ready to be lifted when I go, but bet your Bottom Dollar I will have forgotten something.

Today`s card is not for anyone in particular, I could even change the sentiment if necessary.

Base card Centura Pearl approx 5 x 7
Patterned paper/card from "Tilda" Paper Stack Autumn Lilac pierced round the edge
Reverse side of the previous paper/card
Doily using a Cheery Lynn Die
Labels Die, sentiment cut with a Deckle Edge Die
American Seam Binding died using Distress Inks
Under the Ribbon is a border cut using Edgeabillity Dies
Pearl from my stash
I might have to have a couple of days off to get all myself up to date 
This up and out in the morning before all my chores are done fairly interferes with my free time later in the day.
I also will have to start thinking about making some Homemade Sweets for Christmas.
 I do a mixture of things, pop then in cello bags then into either a Handmade Gift Bag or Box for some of my friend and neighbours.

That`s it for today
I thank you for stopping by I really love it when you do that and leave a message so I know you were here.

  1. Oh poor you, glad you managed to get to the dentist straight away! Great card today, nice gentle colours. I've been missing for a few days doing just what you intend to do. I'm so far behind with things that I felt I needed a few days to catch up with myself. Hope you manage to do what you need to do! Christine xx
