"A Card for Pearl"

Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland.  
Thank you so much for calling in today.  
I am trying hard to get my "Bits to be worked on" corner cleared up.  It is on one end of the Dining Room table.  The John Jnr and the boys are coming for their tea (mummy is working)   We usually just eat in the kitchen but I thought I would set the Dining room table just for a change. Of course that was before  I realised how much stuff was there.
Just thought I would show you ..... !!!

The weather here is absolutely awful, the rain not taking time to come down.  We really should not complain we have had more of a summer so far than we have had in years......but I am sure we will.
Below is the card I made for Pearl to go with the tissue box I made for her Bathroom.  I made a box for her bedroom using some the wallpaper she used in it.  I still have paper from her Lounge and a couple of her other rooms.  I just hope she does not want them done as well.  The boxes are not that hard to make I have just made it very hard for myself for some reason.   The fist one I made a mistake with the lid, that did not fit, I had to make another .... no real problem just ever so frustrating. The one I did for her Bedroom was a total disaster had to the whole thing again.  I really do not know what I did, I had the measurements all there in front of me. 
I was to take them along last week.  When I phoned her husband said she had the offer of work at the Golf at Muirfield.  She took that and was away for the week.  She is back but her mother is not too well, she is at her house looking after her.  Poor Pearl she has had one thing after another in the past 8 months.

I am a wee bit behind with my Blog Commenting but I will catch up I promise.
Thank you for all your lovely comments I really do appreciate them
Till next time

  10. Hi Patricia,
    fabulous card to go with the tissue box. I do love her choice of wallpaper. I should imagine it looks very nice in a cottage, and doesn't it make super craft items.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  11. Excellent! That is a card looks like a painting you did. Nice to be hung up.

  12. Your card is gorgeous, I love the way you have used the wallpaper and lovely sentiment.
    I do all my crafting on the the dining table which means I have to clear away everyday before dinner!!

  17. Hi Patricia, Thank you so much for visiting me and your lovely encouraging comments :D Especially when you have been pretty busy yourself! What with your Grand Children visiting and having to remodel Pearl's boxes ( that was a real shame:{) I think your dining table looks fine, it would take a very long time to clear my crafty table, good job I don't use it for anything else or we'd never eat LOL
    The card you made from Pearl's wallpaper is stunning and I'm sure she will love it too, it will cheer her up!
    Hugs Gay x

  18. Hi Patricia
    stunning card. I love using wallpaper on cards (not sure the local DIY shops feel the same lol!)
    Hope your friend has some good times to come to balance out the rough patch.
    Night night.
