"My first from the Project Book"

Good Sunday Morning Blog Friends, thank you for calling by today.  If you get time please leave a message so I know you were here.  That way I can have a look at what you have been doing.........nosey or what!!!!  I find you can learn so much by looking what other Bloggers have done or are doing.  
I have mentioned that Thomas and Robert go to a tiny village school, only 20 pupils.  Their Head Teacher Carol is Retiring at Christmas.  She is on fase down so is only in school 3 days a week at the moment.  They are to share a Head Teach with another village school a few miles along the road.  She is doing the other 2 days at the school to get to know the children.  The community put on a party for her last night.  The boys are here with us till later this morning, no children at the party.   The children are having a party for her nearer Christmas, that will be just the school children and parents.

Today`s card I made for Carol, John and Audrey took it along to the party to give to her.  
 I have taken the inspiration for the card from the very first project in the Project Book from Creative Expressions.  Sue Wilson has a few cards in the book and as you can see this is a take on one of mistaking that!!!
I have had to do my "Own Thing" for bits.  I did not have the "NestaBling" she used I just did some Cosmic Shimmer Pearls, would you believe I had no White Embossing Powder so I used Silver.  I also edged the flowers as I felt it all just too white for me.  So it is not a "Copy" it is my version of the card.

That`s it for today, I have two boys to get breakfast for.
Thank you for visiting me I really appreciate it.

  1. Patricia, Carol will love this who wouldn't??? Just as well the boys are with till
    later on. You would be on your second project out of your new book other wise.
    Then again there are still a few hours crafting time left after they go home.
    Have fun with the boys. Hazel

  2. Hi Patricia, a stunning card, I just love a white card and your hint of a tint is just beautiful. If this is an example of projects in the book I am really eager for my copy to arrive. Enjoy cooking for "your boys".

  3. Lovely card Patricia. Yes, the Sue Wilson influence is obvious, as you say. I'm sure Carol loved it! By the way, I have made a gift bag and am in the process of making THOSE ROSES - some okay, some not okay. But I'll persevere, and will pop it on the blog in a couple of days so you can see the results of your tutorials. Have a good day. Christine x.

  4. Good Morning Patricia,
    Simply beautiful, my favourite label die, with the stamps. Love all white cards, the hint of a tint on the roses just give it that 'real' touch. LOVE it.
    Will check in later tonight, to see project two, hee hee. You are such a star.
    Have a great day today.

  5. Patricia, you NEED to send a picture of this to Sue Wilson - she will be thrilled to see what you've been up to. It is an absolute stunner of a card and shows how much you think of this headteacher. Can't wait to see what else you come up with by following this book. Hugs, Buttons x

  11. Morning Patricia, My you are quick off the mark, don't know how you got your Project Book so quickly, and to actually have already made your first card, absolutely superb. I love the silver embossing it looks really classy, and the flower is just stunning.
    Have fun with the boys. I am stilll suffering with this cold/flu thing and the racking cough, then last night got really awful pains all across my lower back, so hubby got the 'Deep Heat' out this morning, I smell really good ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  16. Hi Patricia - thank you so much for your note. I'm afraid I have not been well for the last number of weeks and have not been able to make any cards at all. I also have a lot on my hands at home but hopefully I will get back into shape very soon. Loved your card today (as every day) - you always make the style of card that I like. Thanks again.
