"My Card for Pearl"

Hello Blog friends, thank you for calling by today. 
A BIG Hello! to my new followers, you are so very welcome.   Thank you so much for joinging me on my Blogging journey.   I have more followers than I ever thought possible.  It is not easy to get round everyone all the time now.  I will try to pop into as many as I can each day. 
You are all so talented and inspirational.  Without you all visiting my Blog this would not be so much fun.  Thank you for all your comments it makes it all worth while.

I have mentioned recently about my friend Pearl being flooded out of her beautiful cottage.  This is a card I made for her this week.  I have decided that I will try and make a card for her every week till she gets back into her house.  Hopefully they will cheer her up just a little.

Base white card 6 x 6 approx
Pink Co-ordinations card
The papers used are My Minds Eye
Stamps are Just Rite,  
Rose coloured using Spectrum Noirs
Die is Spellbinders labels????................
American seam binding for my 4 loop bow
Button embellishment  and some pearls

Before I started Blogging I bought my Dies, took them out of the packets, popped them on Magnetic Sheets.  I stored them in a Plastic Box never thinking that one day I might need to know the name of each Die.
Now I carefully open the packets, pop them on a piece of the magnetic sheet and put it back in the packet.  I have a much bigger Plastic Box to hold them all but at least I know what is what when I make something

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in really do appreciate it

  3. hi Patricia, this is beautiful,sure it will cheer your friend up, must be terrible to be flooded out
    Where possible I write on the back of my dies with a permament marker pen, also on the magnetic sheet I use a sticky label with the name on.

  5. Hi Patricia,
    What a beautiful card. I adore the colour scheme and the layout is perfect; another winner for me!
    So sorry to hear about the tragedy Pearl has suffered, she must be absolutely devastated. Your idea to send a card every week is such a thoughtful and caring thing to do. You are a special lady.
    Best wished Linda xx

  7. A Gorgeous card Patricia, I'm sure your friend will appreciate it at this awful time for her. I did the exact same things with my dies!! Now I tend to keep the Spellbinders in their packets but I have a drawer full of those. My smaller dies I put in CD envelopes which I label and keep in a CD box - trying to be more organised!

  8. The colours on this are lovely Patricia, a very elegant card.

  9. Good Morning Patricia,
    JUST BEAUTIFUL. Love the whole concept of this card, so I know Pearl will just adore it. Your mojo has returned in full.
    Have a great day.
