"How simple is this"

Hello Blog friends, thank you for all your lovely comments on my last card.  I really appreciate that you take time to do that.

Well today has been "WILD" Oh! My! Word! that wind was and still is fierce.  There are big tress down one side of the garden where I park my car.  I moved it to the other side of the house, John just laughed.  He said would not not be better putting it in the garage.    Now! I am daft but not stupid .......what if one of the trees came down on the garage, my car would be trapped!!!!!   "I" would be trapped as well no buses anywhere near here and sure as anything John would need his car when I would want a car.

I forgot about my neighbours birthday, I don`t give a gift but I like to pop a card in the door.
I remembered just after we had dinner, her Birthday is tomorrow.  John puts the card though the door when he walks along to pick up the papers in the morning.
I have cards made but I wanted to use this Embossing Folder I have had for a while but have not had time to play with.

Base card approx 5 x 7 Centura Pearl
Centura Pearl embossed using a Crafters Companion 8 x 8 embossing folder
There is a defined plain band dividing the patterns, that`s where I have placed the ribbon and bow
I added a pearl in the centre of the bow and 3 small Pink Pearls at the side.
Just realised I have not attached the Happy Birthday which will go just above and to the left of the 3 small pearls.

That`s it for today thank you so much for dropping in to see what I have been up to

  9. Beautiful CAS card Patricia. We too have the high winds - and I really hate wind! We are surrounded by trees and have been trapped by fallen trees in the past. Not a nice situation to be in, so I fully sympathise with your feelings. Christine xx
