"Friendship card for Pearl"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and coping with the weather.
I say this almost every day but I really do love to have you here, I am so glad you have popped in.

Nothing exciting happening here at the moment so it gives me time to "Play"  I have made a few cards today, I am actually quite happy with my wee self!!!  
BUT! Oh! man! what a mess I make, all those bits out of the dies, they go everywhere.  
The table we have in the kitchen is circular it opens out in the middle, we don`t use it open a lot.  I do have to keep opening it to clear out all the bits that manage to find there way in there.  It is mostly the bits from Spellbinder Lattice Dies, also the Lacy Square Die I like to use.

My card today is one I have made for my friend Pearl.
I decided to make and send her a card as often as I can just to let her know I am thinking of her.  I do text everyday and see her at least twice a week.  I feel it is nice to get something to pop on the sideboard even if it is not in your own house, helps a little I think.  The assessor has told them it will probably be the end of June beginning of July before they get back into their house.   It is still drying out, they test the walls twice a week to see how they progressing.

Base card  approx 4 x 6 Centura Pearl Card pierced round the edge
Pink card from stash cut with Spellbinder Labels Twenty Die
Pink patterned card from Tilda Flowergarden Paper Stack
Stamp from LOTV 
Butterflies Spellbinder Dies

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

  14. Hi Patricia - I'm loving your work. When I looked at the photographs of where you live on your profile, I thought we lived in the same village.
