Hello and welcome to my little corner of the wonderful world of Blogland.
I receive so many kind messages and comments thank you very much. I truly try to respond to every single one.
Nothing exciting here at all today. Boys back at school after great holiday with hardly any "indoor" days. I think they had one day where they went to the cinema with Mummy because it was horrible weather.
Well folks I have actually started .... making my Christmas Cards. I made very few last year, we decided to donate all the money we would have spent on materials and postage to a Cancer Charity after all the treatments that Hazel had. I had a few phone calls from people wondering if we were all OK. So from sending out over 100 Christmas Cards I have now decided that I will drastically cut back this year. The people who phoned are top of the list. They obviously noticed the did not get a card from us. Other than the ones who did get one last year that will be it for me. I tell you people get so many cards, they open them, look to see who it is from then forget all about it. They might notice that yours was missing if they look through them again before getting rid of them.
I made 6 very similar to the one below. I have kept all my card flattish so the will go standard Second class.
A few of you mentioned that yesterday`s Sympathy card design could be used for other occasions. I took that on board, and came up with this.
Base 5 x 5 white card
White card embossed with an embossing board I borrowed from Elaine.
I covered the join with Stamping Up Ribbon
Embossed a small SB Bauble and popped that on
Tied a triple bow with some Bakers Twine which I ran across a Victorian Velvet Ink Pad
A Memory Box Star. This set comes with two sizes this is the smaller one
Stamped sentiment using a Clairty Stamp I have had since the year dot!!!
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for popping by I really appreciate it
Till next time
