Hello and welcome to my Blog where I hope that sometimes you can get a little inspiration. I know when I go Blog Hopping I discover that there is so much talent out there it is "mind blowing"
Today our weather was dramatically cooler, such a relief, I was up early baking and cooking for the boys coming back.
It was John Jr's birthday yesterday, he should have been here but they all spent the day in Philadelphia, a much better option I would have thought. We had a "Party Breakfast" Bacon Butties and Birthday Cake, now how "Posh" was that???
They arrived much earlier than I expected but I was ready!!! They landed right on time 6.50am. got through customs quick smart, "all" their bags were going round on the carousel as they approached. They had arranged for their car to be brought to the door of the Airport (or as near to the door as you get these days) they were off. Through Glasgow no problems, they phoned when they were on the far side of Perth so I had 30 mins to get everything ready. I was up from the crack of dawn so was well organised.
Poor Thomas who is 8 almost 9 got so excited at getting to our house to see his Grandpa he made himself sick. He ended up having to lie down. He fell asleep, slept here at our house from 10am till 6.30pm. Mum, Dad and Robert left Thomas here went home and fell asleep as well.
Now! it is not me that is "Frayed round the Edges" just my card................................!!!
Base card 6x6 White card
Lilac paper with stars on it, a Freebe from a Magazine
Piece of card I had done the Inked Folder technique on and was not that good (a bit blotchy) put to good use where you don`t see the damage!!!
Some pink/lilac card which I stitched round. The small cheap Sewing Machine is hopeless. As this card was a bit "shabby" I decided to keep going with the wonky stitching.
The circle Die Cuts I got on eBay. I found a site that was selling lots of the Memory Box Dies all cut 10 for £1.99. Thought I would send for a selection of ones I quite liked. If I really, really liked them I could buy the Die. Happy to use what I bought, only buying one of the Dies.
Flowers SB Blossom Five plus some other flowers using a Britannia Flower Die I bought at the Great North Papercraft Show in Harrogate earlier this year.
Leaves SB Foliage Die
With love stamped on a pre-cut tag I found while rummaging the other day.
A few pearls from my stash to finish off
That`s it for today
