"Have I shown you this"

Hello and welcome to the "mad house".  I am sure I am going off my "trolley"  
Nothing new there that`s for sure.   
A couple of weeks ago we had the Painter in giving the place a freshen up, all except the Lounge.  That had been done a few months ago.   I had taken down all the pictures, as you do.   I had decided I was not putting a lot of  them up again.  However there are two that have always hung in the outer porch and they were to go up again .... well we had lost one.   I asked John if he had put it away by mistake.  Off he went to check  ..  nope!!   How on earth can you possibly loose a blooming big picture????
I came home this afternoon from my morning coffee with Hazel and some friends to be escorted into the lounge by John.  There was the picture, hanging in an alcove at the far side of the chimney breast.  It has been there for a couple of months.  Both of us had forgotten we had a change about when we painted the lounge.   So not only I am I going off my trolley John is joining me as well. .........................   need be locked up us two, so we do!!!
I am sure I have shown you this card before but can I find the Post........ no!   If you have seen it I am really sorry.  See!!! more evidence that I am loosing the Plot.

White Centura Pearl Base card cut using SB Grand Decorative Circles One
I know a few of you cut through two layers of card to create this style of card.  I am always frightened I break my GC doing that.  
I cut out two separately score the back one down about 1 inch from the top then glue the folded bit to the front Die Cut
Cut a lilac embossed piece of card using SB Grand Circle Die
White card embossed with Swiss Dot Embossing folder, cut using SB Die
The leaf swirls a Cheery Lynn Die, Basket a Marianne Die, Leaves Crealies Die.   Flowers are waste from a Die I have not a clue what it is, plus some punched out leaves.
Stamped Greeting

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in and putting up with my ramblings I really appreciate that.  Also the fact you still come back.........................!!!
Till next time

  4. Beautiful card Patricia. I have to admit I cut my shaped cards that way also. I think it gives a nicer finish than cutting with the die over the edge.

  19. Hello there lovely lady. It was so nice to read your message, life tends to get in the way a little bit and I've been working on other crafty things than cards so haven't been posting much.

    I'm glad you are using and enjoying your copic holder. It's lovely that you think of me now and then when you use it.

    This is gorgeous little card, I love purple and white!
