Oh! Wow! I have another follower, I checked out her Blog and there are some stunning photographs on it. The only this is, I really did look, unfortunately I could not find her actual name. So welcome anyway, thank you for joining me in my little corner of Blogland.
Nothing exciting here today, John`s car had to go to the garage in Broughty Ferry for its MOT. It is a fair few miles from here. They always offer us a car, but it depends on what they have to offer on the day. It is good of them BUT!! John has a 4x4 because of his back and knees. He finds getting in and out of a low car rather difficult, so a "sporty" type job is no darned use........ Last time that`s what they gave us......we did manage I drove, helped John out when we stopped, not a pretty sight!!!! what a laugh we had. However rather than chance getting similar, I followed him in my car. We then drove into Dundee, had a look round the shops and made a few purchases. Well!! you have to take the opportunity to spend when its there don`t you!!! When we got back to the garage they apologised saying the car would not be ready till about 5pm.but they had a nice new 4x4 ready for us to use till tomorrow. I just hope John does not get any fancy ideas!!!!! Typical the day I take my car he gets to drive the nice new one home.
When I saw the card Mrs Duck http://theducksdoodahs.blogspot.co.uk had up the other day it reminded me of one I made on the very same theme. I know one of the rules in Blogging is to give credit to a person, company, or contact if you have used their idea or products. That`s all very well and good but how many times have we made and posted a card when someone on that very same day has posted similar.?? My opinion is that we all use very similar things, get ideas when we go "Blog Hopping" these similarities are bound to happen.
My card base is approx 5 x 7 white card
I used a SB scallop Border Die to cut the edge
The tag style pieces are cut from white card embossed using SB Paisley embossing folder
Piece of lace from my Lace Box
American Seam binding to cover the join between the lace and card. A four loop bow of the same and a pearl
Roses were bought from Wild Orchid Crafts, actually that`s also where I got the pearl embellishment from
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for stopping to have a look. I really appreciate that you do that and leave all your lovely comments
Till next time
