"Congratulations Andy & a Tag Card"

Hello and welcome to my little space in the wonderful  land of Blogging.
Thank you so much for taking time off from basking in the sunshine to come and see what I have been up to.
Andy DID IT this time, Congratulations , well done.
I would like thank all who contacted me when my Blog was closed down by Google.   They closed it and e-mailed me that someone in Afghanistan was trying to access my account.  I was very suspicious, and panicked a little at first.  I did not click on the link they gave me.  I went directly to Google and their "Help" where I only had to change my Password.  Thankfully that was that and I was up and running again.  I really thought that I was going to have to set up another Blog.  Now that for me would have been a total nightmare......probably would not have even bothered. 
Hazel and I are disappointed that we did not manage up to Aberdeen on Saturday to See Sue Wilson.  There you go that`s life.  "the best laid plans".    She was wearing one of our Pendants which was nice.   Hazel and I raised over £300 for Charity from the sale of our Pendants after Sue wore one and mentioned them on C&C when she was doing a show with Dawn Bibby.

Today`s card is a "tag" card.   I bought some of these Tags and Boxes from Stella Crafts.  They are by Kathy from the Glitter Girls.  I noticed them when I was recently placing an order for some boxes .  They are not expensive, I thought it was nice to have the tag and box with the acetate front.

Found a piece of pink card I had run through an embossing folder in my box
I ran an embossing pad round the edges added Silver Embossing Powder and heat embossed
Flowers are SB Rose Creation Die.  I did not make them into actual roses like I normally do
Leaves a Memory Box Die I cut them up to fit the design
Some American Seam Binding and a few pearls from my stash
Now!! the sentiment I think was on a card that Heather showed on her Blog last week, possibly the week before.  Time goes past so fast these days.  Anyway I thought it was a really nice sentiment and have used it for my tag.   If it was not Heather, thank you to who ever it was.

That`s it for today
Hope you have all enjoyed the sunshine and have not sat out too long.  I love to see and feel the heat from the sun but do not lie in it.  It is so bad for the skin, when you live in a hot county and see what it does to the poeple it makes you want to stay out of the direct sunshine.
Thank you so much for dropping by, I really appreciate it
Till next time

  9. Morning Patricia, So glad you managed to get your Blog sorted, that would have been a nightmare if you had to start all over again with it.
    Andy, Andy, Andy, (I was shouting that ha ha), I am over the moon that he has won it, absolutely brilliant, although I was having to watch with hands over my eyes at times, it was so nail-biting at the end. I really have to commend Djokovic on his speech, what a really lovely man he is. Now it could be 'Sir' Andy !!!!!
    Your tag is gorgeous, the sentiment is truly beautiful.
    I'm off to Inspirations at Preston this morning to see Hels Sheridan demo the melt pot, can't wait ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  14. Morning Patricia,
    Such a beautiful tag, love the colours you have used. Are the flowers from a die?
    And so pleased for Andy, good job. A great match.

  15. Good morning Patricia and everyone.
    Your tag is sooo pretty and I too made a note of that lovely sentiment.
    I had a smile at your comment on my blog about the peach schnapps as it was one of my dear late Mum's favourites. She used to have it with orange juice and called it a Fuzzy Navel!
    Didn't realise it was a necklace you had made that Sue showed on that programme. I do jewellery too (haven't shown any on the blog yet)
    Have a great day. x

  16. Sorry you didn't manage to get to see Sue Wilson, Love the tag, its so very pretty.
