"Thinking of You"

Good Morning Blog friends.
Thank you for popping by today, I love that you take time to come and visit my Blog.

I am sorry I have not been posting quite so much.   
Since Sue Wilson wore one of our Pendants and spoke about it on her 4 Day Deal Show, on Tuesday evening.  Hazel and I have been rather busy.  
We have had lots and lots of enquiries and a fair amount of orders, we are both delighted.  The only downside is that I do not have the same amount of free time to "puddle about" on the computer keeping my Blog up to date.
If I have not been in to visit you these past few days, you now know why.   I will catch up soon I promise.

We have managed to keep on top of the orders but we are running out of choices of beads.  John and are down in Harrogate next week from Thursday till Monday.   I am hoping to get to the Great Yorkshire Paper Show.   OK! OK! I know it`s the Paper Show, hopefully there will be some Beads on offer.  I have not been to this show for years but there are usually beads on offer at this type of show.  Lots of crafter`s use beads on their cards so I am sure someone will take the opportunity to sell them.  We do buy lots on the internet but it is nice to see and feel some now and againA
Thank You to everyone who has shown interest and bought our Pendants.  They are hand made to raise money for Cancer Charities/ Facilities in our area.  We keep the money local as Hazel had all her treatments and care where we give the money.

My card today is one Hazel ordered for a friend who is going through a bad spell.  Hazel just wants her to know that she is thinking about her.   It has to be posted so I kept it quite flat.

 Base card is slightly bigger than 4 x 6  white card stock
I cut a second front cut out an oval then embossed it using a dotty embossing folder
Attached this raising it slightly with foam pads, placed a smaller oval in with the greeting
Spellbinder Die-Lites Poppy Patch cut and gently coloured with Copics
Ribbon and bow to finish off.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate your comments they make my day

Off to be busy with only fear is "spilling" them..........LOL!!!

Oooppss!!  I almost forgot.
A couple of weeks ago I had lots of problems with the "New" top on the Cosmic Shimmer Glue.
I squeezed it too hard the whole top came off and covered my project with glue.  This happened twice and I was rather upset.
However I e-mailed Creative Expressions and the lovely Linda has sent me 2 bottles of glue with the old style top.  They have gone back to that, PLUS a copy of the new Project book.  So a BIG thumbs up for Creative Expressions.

  5. Hi Patricia, and apologies for not having kept on top of comments myself. Life/health can get in the way sometimes.
    I am thrilled for you both that your pendants are flying, and well they might. They are absolutely gorgeous - Sue Wilson has impeccable taste and wouldn't wear anything that wasn't utterly classy. Think you are going to have to come back from Harrogate with a wheelbarrow full of beads! Adore your card today too. How you find the time is beyond me. Just remember to sleep sometimes! Huge hugs to you and Hazel, Jenny xx
