Hello and welcome, thank you for calling by today. I really appreciate that you take time to come see what I have been up to. If I can give someone somewhere a little inspiration I will be delighted.
Well, well, what a "scorcher" we have had today. A thin veil of cloud came over about 6.30pm what a relief, it was still very warm but the burning glare of the sun had gone. At one point in the afternoon I had to retreat to the cool of the house. I keep the blinds closed to keep the sun out, the house always remains nice and cool.
John, Audrey and the boys should have been home today. They are still in San Fransisco, they have had to stay another few days. The airport has been closed due to that terrible plane crash the other day. They are not in the least bothered, just another episode in their holiday. That`s one thing about them, they will see the positive of this rather than the negative. Having all the modern technology like "Smart Phones and iPads" they can get in touch with whoever they need to in order to re-organise everything.
Today`s card is yet another with my Roses, sorry about that. People want them, who I am I to argue, brings in the pennies to buy more crafty stuff!!!
Base card is 6 x 6 white card stock folded to make a "twisted easel"
I embossed some white card using the inking of the Folder technique with Squeezed Lemonade Ink
Cut panels to fit the front and base
SB Dies for the centre where I popped on a computer generated greeting
Roses made with SB Blossom Five Die very slightly inked with Squeezed Lemonade Ink
Leaves SB Foliage Die
I used a JustRite Stamp and Greeting for the focal point on the base which holds the card up. Tucked a couple of odd leaves that were left over in there as well.
That`s it for today,
I really appreciate you calling in and leaving your lovely comments.
I hope you have all been very careful in the sunshine and have applied plenty Factor 50 Suncream. Or better still sat in the shade.
Till next time
