On the Tiles Again"

Hello and welcome, great to have you visit.
Before I continue I have to apologise to anyone I have missed out today.  I try to comment on as many of my followers Blogs as often as I can.   
I was working in the Tearoom with Eliane today and by great were we busy or what!!!  
I am sheduling this as I know I will fall asleep as soon as I sit down and get comfy.  My feet are sore not really from working but from dropping things on both my Big Toes....!!!  I dropped my iPad on my right Big Toe on Monday evening.   Then  I dropped the thick "base" plate from my Cuttlebug on my left Big Toe on Tuesday.  They are both very sore but getting better.  Thank goodness it is summer and I can have my toes out.   As you will be aware you are not allowed to have open toe shoes or open sandals on in the Tearoom   ... Health & Safety rules.  Well my poor big toes were aching by the time I got home.  I did take my open shoes with me and had to put them on in the afternoon luckily we did not get any visitations from an Inspector.
So this will be short so I can get my "feet" up, I am getting too old for this working lark.

Base card is 5x5 white scalloped card
I covered a piece of Lilac card with some very fine netting I found in a drawer the other day.   It was one of these circles of net for Wedding Favours.  You really do not see it but it is there
I then cut some 2inch squares of card.  Covered them with slightly smaller pieces of pretty backing paper.   I distressed the edges of these.
I did intend sewing these squares onto the Lilac Card   ...   the whole card was all put together before I remembered that I was going to do that....Duh!!!
Cut and embossed a SB Classic Circle and added that
Arranged some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, SB Foliage and a Memory Box Die Cut
Made a banner and stamped Happy Birthday
A great card for using up bits of left over card and paper

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really appreciate it.
I will get round you all I promise
Till next time

  5. Hi Patricia
    very pretty card. Wonderful colours.
    Isn't it bad when you probably would rather break your toe than your ipad lol! x

  6. Pretty pretty pretty card Patricia, and can definitely see the mesh, great idea that. Love the composition of it all.
    Poor toes - ouch!

  9. In answer to Ang and Heathers comments about a least it was your toe not your iPad. I wish my iPad had only hit my toe - no mine hit the ground and yes replacement screen required at the cost of £90. I can tell you I was so cross with myself as only an hour earlier I had told Beth to be careful with the iPad. The trouble was that I had bought a new case for the said iPad (not cheap) and it doesn't have a secure top bit, so iPad slipped out. And yes it is insured but excess and time away it's just as cheap to take it to the little repair place in St. Andrews . So be its back to the old cover for me.

    I now know why you told me not to ask on Wednesday why you kept taking your shoes off, yes I do think steel toe capped shoes are needed, then maybe no Gillian wouldn't tell you off.

    Be careful, Hazel xxxx

  10. Morning Patricia, Firstly thank you so much for your help with my query about card for the roses, I have emailed you a quickie Thank You.
    Oh poor you, your poor toes, there is nothing worse. I remember a few weeks ago I was using my ebosser and all the plates were balanced in front of the machine, and they all fell off the table straight onto my toes, and it was soooooooooooo painful, (I was wearing flip flops at the time), I thought I was going to lose the nails but thankfully didn't.
    Your card is so pretty, lovely colours, and ideal for using up scraps of pretty papers, it is gorgeous.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
