Hello Blog Fiends, my goodness can you believe it is the weekend AGAIN!! Last time I looked it was sure is was Monday...................... I am sure it was..............................!!!
Thank you for popping in I love having you here. Thank you for all your lovely comments I do like to read them all.
Elaine came last night, had floods of tears when she arrived. By the time she left we had sore sides and jaws with all the laughing. She made me feel good as she went out the door, she said being with me was the best thing she had done all week. I thought her dog was a lot older, he was only 21/2, he died from a digestive problem. They thought he might have chewed and swallowed some pieces of Logo, he was off his food for a couple of days. Vet said he had been born with this problem and it had taken that length of time to come to light. Elaine did say a while ago he was a very fussy eater, I joked with her and said he had gone to the right family as they are all VERY fussy eaters.
Today`s card is a bit different,. I was trawling on YouTube around New Year time and saw a Tutorial for a Gatefold card with this style of closure. Did try to find it again but no luck, hopeless I am on this blooming computer. I did see a few Christmas cards with a similar idea, so had to have a go.
Card ended up approx 6 x 6
Cream card for one side and White for the other.
Lilac for a contrast
I used Spellbinder Marvelous Squares for all the pieces on the front
The whole set was placed on each of the colours of card and I cut them.
I them took all the individual sections and played till I got a combination that worked
Even the corner bits came from doing this.
Matted the outer frames to the left side, inner frames to the right side so they link together.
Tiny little bit from the very centre is on the left side so it is 3 way link
Attached a swirl of pearls, also some pearls in the corners
Looking at it now I think I should have used better contrasts. Other than that I am happy with it.
I remember Sue Wilson saying that when you get new Die Sets to cut them all out and "Play" that`s what I did and it works.
Sue Wilson is to be back on our screens 4th 8th and 17th of March well that`s the plan at the moment. I love watching Sue demonstrate, for me she has some great idea
That`s it for today
Have a fantastic weekend
Thank you for calling by, I really appreciate it
