"Positive & Negative"

Hello Blog friends, I think "spring" has come to this part of the country at long last.  We have had a wonderful day, the sun shone, the air was warm, the washing was hung outside and it dried completely.
A very quick post the boys have been here for tea, Grandpa picked them up from school, they love that.  John has taken them back home, they wanted to stay but I am up early and off to Inverness in the morning.  Goodness knows when John will be back when John Jnr and him get together they can chat all evening.
Hazel, my friend Elaine and myself are going up to Inverness to meet Kate (Cullisocks).  We are all going to NEC in Birmingham in November.   We hope to get a few meet ups in before then but this is our very first, face to face meeting, all very exciting.  We had this planned a few weeks past but had to call off because the road was blocked with snow.   If we get a day like today it will be a stunning journey up to Inverness.

Today`s card is made from the waste after Die cutting the foliage image.
I used other bits from my "bundle" for the rest of the card
I think the Die is a Cheery Lynn Die it is a purple Die 
Base card approx 31/2 x 5 perfect to pop in with a gift
Piece of Black card
Cream card I Die cut another piece of foliage from, then cut the foliage to fit how I wanted it.
A rose made from another scrap of the cream card, lightly brushed over with some Distress ink just to highlight the tips of the leaves.   I made the rose using SB Blossom Five

That`s it for today off to get my bits and pieces ready for an early start tomorrow.  I will pick up Elaine then meet Hazel.   All aboard the bus for a good old chat on the 2 hour journey up to Inverness.

Thank you calling by my little corner of Blogland I really appreciate that you take the time to visit.

  16. Hi Patricia,
    stunning card. Love the idea, and that lovely die.
    I hope you are enjoying your day out. I really loved Inverness shopping center, when we went quite a few years ago, and the journey there is so beautiful. It will be stunning on a bus as you are up higher and can see more.
    I have just made a wedding card using the lattice die cut you did for me. Thank you so much as I think the card has come out very beautiful with it.
    Have a wonderful day out.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
