Met Hazel this morning along with another two friends. We had coffee`s chatted, more coffee`s and more chat. Tried to put the world to rights but I am sure like many others who try to do the same we have failed miserably. However we had a good time catching up .
I have been busy getting things up to date in the house this evening. I am off out early with Audrey tomorrow morning. Audrey will drop the boys at school then come here to pick me up. We are off to Perth trying to sort out the continuing saga with her curtains. I love my DIL to bits, we get on so well in general. The one time we could fall out is over curtains. She is a very clever girl but just does not grasp the concept of measuring for curtains. I kept telling her she would be better buying the material and my friend would make them. I used to do all the curtain making. I stopped that when it became too much of a strain on my back, lifting the yards and yards of material we need to cover our windows. Convinced having them made would be too expensive she bought some. It has been a total disaster. Expensive curtains, poor quality material when they were hanging on the windows. They were changed for something totally different, these new ones the material is coming away from round the eyelets, they are not even hung up yet. Bearing in mind we live 22 miles from the the shop where she bought them. She has been back and forward so many times the price of petrol would have gone a fair way to the cost of them being made. Anyway enough said we will see how things go tomorrow.
I was asked by Hazel`s daughter Tammy to make a Gift Card Wallet. They wanted to give a gift but the couple seemed to have everything. The Gift Card would allow them to buy whatever they wanted.
I used one sheet of 300gsm white card stock
Scored the card in a Tri-fold using my trusty old MF scoring board that I have had for years. This was my first ever scoring board and wow! does it usage show!!!
Used a combination of SB Border Dies to cut the edge. Decorated it with flowers. They are made with bits from a Die. I pop them on my embossing mat and form them with an embossing tool. Easy Peasy!!
I cut a bit off the height of the inner layer of card and stuck it down along the outside edges to hold the Gift Card
Added Organza Ribbon to tie a bow to close.
I buy all my 25cm Organza Ribbon from Mieflower I just love their rolls of this ribbon it ties beautifully and is not expensive.
That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting I really appreciate it
Till next time
