Thank You

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well and looking forward to another new week.
Oh! My! Goodness they are passing very quickly are they not??
Thank you for popping in to see me today, I love that you take time to do that .  I love when you leave comments it makes my day.

Well we got to Harrogate, through so many changes of weather.  Beautiful sunshine with the hills thick with snow when we left here.  We went though snow, rain, more sunshine, more snow till we eventually got there and guess what .........yep!!! raining.  Oh! Well! that`s what happens in this country I suppose we just have to accept it.
Went to the Show on Saturday morning,  not too impressed but I am so used to going to SECC Glasgow where it is so much bigger and a far more diverse selection of crafts.  I did not stay too long, bought a few things.....obviously!!!!
Did not spend a fraction of what I usually spend in Glasgow.  That`s more pennies in the pot for going to Birmingham in November.   Did have a look about to see if I recognised any of my Bog Buddies but nope!! sorry!!!   Met up with John after he had been to see his Model Railway shop, we went off and had lunch together.
Today`s card is one of a selection of Thank You cards I did for Hazel.

Base card done using SP Amazing Squares Die Set
I used the "WHOLE" 7 dies then removed the bits I did not want to use
I stamped a Stamping Up sentiment cut it out using one of the smaller Labels One dies
Bow of American Seam Binding
Pearl to finish off

The Idea for the card is a design on Amazing Paper Grace

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate it

  1. Hello Patricia. Nice to hear that you got back home safe and sound. You know sometimes we think the grass is greener on the other side. I love your Thank-you card and I think I need those dies. Hugs Rita xx

  2. Beautiful card Patricia love your gorgeous spellbinders dies and love your fabulous bow


  3. Gorgeous card Patricia, think I need that die too! Pleased you got home safe and sound, are you going to either of the Edinburgh shows over the next few months? Carol x

  4. Lovely delicate card Patricia. Beautiful dies! Glad you had a safe journey both there and back again. I have decided against going to the NEC this time. There is a smaller papercraft fair at the National Motor Cycle Museum (very close to the NEC) on May 4th so I decided that I would go there this time and not spend so much money. But I'll be seeing you in November!!!!! Christine xx

  5. Hello Patricia, welcome back and safely too. Lovely card, this die is spectacular to say the least, love the simple white colours. Kate x

  6. This is gorgeous Patricia. I love the elegant design and beautiful ribbon.

  8. Hi Patricia a lovely card the dies are just so pretty! Susan x

  9. Good Morning Patricia,
    Glad you got home safely, compared to the NEC, Harrogate is smaller but easier on the purse, lol.
    Thought I saw a touch of 'Becca' in one or two of your designs, lovely card.

  10. Morning Patricia, Gorgeous card, a fantastic 'Thank You'. Can I ask, please - how have you joined the die-cut front to the die-cut back ??
    I have just bought Becca's Bow Maker, so will hopefully be making lots of bows ha ha.
    Glad you had a good time at the Show, although it's a bit deflating when you expect more than what you get. I was like that last year when I visited the Leeds Show.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. The finished card is approx 4 x 4 I cut a piece of card approx 4 x 6
      Fold at 4 x 4 giving 2 inches of an overhang. I place the dies slightly "off" the fold and cut the double thickness giving you a hinge at the top of the card. I then add a 4 x 4 piece to the back and front of this trapping the 2 inch piece between. That then gives you the back of your card.
      I hope you understand, easy to do but explain that`s a whole different Ball Game.

  13. Beautiful card, Patricia! I love that of my favourites, and such a pretty central part, too, with your sentiment and bow.
    I completely forgot about Harrogate this year, I wanted to go. But with all that's been going on I simply forgot.

  14. SORRY Patricia...I pressed publish by mistake...I really am losing my marbles.
    I wanted to say...
    Thank you for your kind words on our loss of Cookie. We are all missing her so much. Hugs xx

  15. Gorgeous card Patricia, Love those die-cuts... Such an elegant card... Beautiful.. I'm not to sure were Harrogate is!!!it must be quite far from you? I am going to Alexander Palace to the Big stamp show in April.. whoop whoop so saving my pennies for that one!! & When I retire in 3 years I plan to go up to Birmingham for the NEC!!! Have a great week, Hugs May x x x

  16. Lovely, elegant card Patricia, sorry you weren't so impressed with Harrogate show. Have never been to that one.. too far! Have been to NEC several times, but my favourite is Ally Pally & we're off there in a few weeks time Carole Z xx

  18. Hi Patricia

    Stunning and very beautiful!

    Love this one very much.

    Love Jules xx

  19. Lovely card Patricia - know what you mean about the SECC - it certainly wasn't up to its usual standard this time and I spent much less than I expected too although did get a couple of things I was after so not all bad!

  20. This is Gorgeous Patricia, I have this Spellbinders and like you Visit Becca's blog she is amazing!
    You have created a beautiful card too.
    So sad we missed each other, I must have looked at every woman's chest at the show...funny woman I am!! I was looking for your
    The show was very lacking in stalls this time, I reckon about 20 were missing at least....Weather maybe! as lots come from down south. I still managed to spend £200...gulp!

    Huge Hugs Mau xx

  21. What a stunning Thank You card! I Love It!
