"Be Unique"

Hello and welcome to my Blog.  I hope you are all well, if any of you are feeling a bit poorly I send you a big HUG!!
 We have had a very nice day here after the terrible Thunder & Lightening last night.  Started very misty, that soon lifted to give a really warm sunny day.  The boys were here so it let them get out to run about.  They went off with Grandpa for a bike ride.  Robert 6 was with them so they did not go too far, a round trip of just about 5 miles.  They still needed supplies though.  Water, crisps and some chocolate, when they got back they still had most of the chocolate.  Thomas came in and said "Granny why did you give us chocolate it melted".  I never packed the bag it was Grandpa ....... when I  told him this, his answer was "It must have gotten hotter after Grandpa packet it"   Grandpa can do no wrong in that boys eyes!!!!
I was having a bit of a tidy up of some card and paper.  I found some 6 x 6 Co-ordinations card stock so decide to use some of the colours that normally do not appeal to me.  That`s probably why they were at the bottom of the box.  

Base card 6 x 6 white card
Piece of 6 x 6 dark beige card cut slightly smaller
Piece of brown card also cut smaller and run through a Crafters Companion embossing folder and sanded back
Corners cut using a SB Die I have no idea of the name, I got it before I started Blogging.  Took them from the package and stuck them on a piece of Magnetic Sheet and in a little wallet.  I have learnt to do things differently now!!!!
A piece of paper I found in my Bit Box and I know it is a Nit Wit paper but cant remember from which collection.  I really love some of the Nit Wit papers.  I have loads of the collection but sometimes I do forget about them
A mat using SB Scalloped Circle Die
Sentiment I found in my "Die cut Bit Box" the other evening.  It had been cut out in white and not used.  I inked it up to take the stark look away.  I thought it was quite a nice sentiment
I think I must buy some of these Gilding Waxes I feel the corners should be a bit brighter

That`s it for tonight
Thank you for popping in, I realy appreciate that.  
I receive so many kind messages and I truly try to respond to everyone.  Please know I am so thankful that you take time to comment
Till next time
