"Another Trio"

Hello and welcome to by Blog.
I think I have managed to catch up with all your Blogs.  Well I do hope so, if I missed anyone please let me know and I will get to you A.S.A.P.  
Up early this morning, beds stripped, washed and out.  Got the house done before John and I went off to Perth.  He was very badly needing a haircut, to the extent that when he came out of the barber shop he looked like a totally different person.........I kid you not!!!!  John wears his hair very short but Man! Oh! Man! he left it almost 10 days longer than normal.  I was a right proper mess. 
I need not talk I go to get mine cut on Thursday in preparation for going away next week, mine is also far too long.
I have had a rather quite day today for a change.  No rushing hither and tither, most unusual, actually took bad having a bit of time to think!!!   However Card Class tomorrow, Elaine is coming tonight to help finish off preparing the projects.  I have done most of the preparation for the cards I am doing.  The ladies wanted to do a "Diamond Top" card.   Elaine made 150 of this style for her daughters wedding invitations.  She reduced the size and made all the Name Cards for the over to Elaine on this one.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Trio of White Cards.

Here are another 3 cards that are in the Gift Box of Cards for my friend
I made the 2 brownish ones to be used as "man" cards but really think they could be used for both
The Lilac one is definitely for a lady.  They have been made with some "bits" as well as prepared pieces.  Fish tail banners I cut myself, Dies used are SB Classic Circles and Oval.  The Aster is cut from scraps, the SB Lattice was cut some time ago and never used
Pearls, gold Dots from Peel-offs and a button to finish off

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate you take time from your busy day to do that
Till next time

  3. Hi Patricia,
    another batch of super little cards. great design as usual. They are going to be a very handy present.
    Still trying to grow my hair into a bob, and I'm getting to the stage where I wish I wasn't growing it.
    The trouble with my hair when it's short is, I used to have long hair when I was younger, and wore it up a lot. So the bottom of my hairline at the back never falls right when it's short, and it annoys me so.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Beautiful cards Patricia, a lovely variety.
    I keep my hair short now, very short, number 5 on Johns hair trimmers!!!! xxxx

  5. Morning Patricia, So glad John and yourself are getting to grips with your hairdressing needs, you got a 'new' hubby and John will get a 'new' wife, when you get yours done. So glad you found someone to replace your last hairdresser, it's a minefield, I know. I keep mine really short now, I got it cut really short after I retired and can't believe how easy it is to deal with, I now wonder why I didn't do it years ago ha ha.
    Your three cards today ,for your friend's card box, are beautiful, she will absolutely adore your box of treasures.
    I hope your card class goes well today, your ladies will love it.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  6. Hi Patricia

    Off to the shop now so have a great day with your ladies.
