"Scalloped Edge Card"

Hello Blog friends, well today has been such a contrast to what we had yesterday.  Sun has shone all day, the deep snow has almost gone.

Thank you for popping into my little corner of Blogland to see what I have been up to.

I started this morning with some Scalloped circle Dies cut out along with other bits to make today`s project.  That went out the window when Audrey phoned to say Robert was not very well.  He had the cold but it has now affected his ears, we all know that can be rather painful.  They are off school for Half Term so not loosing any learning time which is good.   Anyway their only request when they are not too good is "can you phone and ask Grandpa to come along".  Always Grandpa till it comes to feeding time in this house, then they come looking for me.    So guess where we spent most of the day!!!   John and I left there and headed further along into Forfar to do some food shopping.  Shopping all done, fruit bowls filled again, Veg Rack full and other things in the cupboard.  Not that we want any more snow but we are stocked up anyway.

Robert is fine looks awful, wee white face, they both are very slim (not for the lack of eating and drinking gallons of milk) when the are ill they can look like wee waifs......................LOL, thank goodness they are very rarely ill.    Tomorrow is another day, Robert was just beginning to wilt again as we left.   I am sure he will have been asleep by the time we go to Forfar.

Back home for tea then a quick put together of my card, so here we are:-

Base card was an 8 x 8 white card I cut with a Spellbinder Grand Circle Die. 
I then ran the front of the card though an Embossing Folder
Green floral card from my Tilda Paper Stack "Kitchen Garden" cut with the next size down
I cut the same floral card with Spellbinder Fancy Lattice Die 
White card cut using Spellbinder largest Stately Circles with a plain circle Die to cut a frame which I placed over the Lattice 
Spellbinder Blossom Five for the flower which is cut using the reverse side of the Floral card
Some die cut leaves from my Die Cut Bit Box
White American Seam Binding for my bow

That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting I really appreciate it

  6. Hi Patricia

    Here at last!!

    I am just having a quick look around blogland and trying to catch up with a few blogs. All my time seems to be going on orders and wedding work at the moment .. .. but it keeps me out of mischief !! LOL!!!

    You have been working very hard and have posted some lovely makes since my last visit.

    This one is a great shape. I love how the edges are squared off so it will stand up properly. I tried doing one that was just circular with the fold at the top and it was a real balancing act to keep it upright!

    It sounds like your weather has been much the same as ours and we have been promised a lovely weekend .. .. so we shall see!

    I hope Robert feels much better today. How lovely to be wanted by them.

    Have a good day today.

    Love Jules xx

  18. Hi Patricia,
    superb card. Love the shape and snap about the lattice design. You know what they say about great minds. Mind you I wish I had yours sometimes with the great things you produce. I have dubbed Wilma second queen of the roses as hers, with your input are nearly as outstanding as yours.
    I hope Robert gets better soon, I have had this darn cold thing for a week now and it's causing me the probs I told you about in my email, and making me very tired.
    Have a wonderful crafty evening and weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
