I cannot return the favour however I do love that you keep me company.
Usual Monday here, house cleaning day. Got all the washing done and out, the weather was great till midway through the afternoon. I was on the phone to Hazel telling her I had got all the bedding dry. The sun was shining when we started chatting ........ I just happened to look out and it was starting to rain. End of conversation, I ran out to get the washing and in the process got absolutely soaked. I had to change, however I got the washing. Shower only lasted 3 or 4 minutes but My! Goodness! it was like monsoon rain for that time.
Hazel ordered some cards for her daughter to be ready for Wednesday morning when we meet.
Had to go hunting for that "Magic Wand" again!!!! Baby cards, I really do not know how many I have made for Tammy over the last couple of months, all these new babies.
Audrey (a midwife) is really, really busy just now. All the Christmas and New Year made babies..........!!!!
My card today is one for my Stock Box here at the house. I often have ideas, make a card for no reason, they usually go in my box. This one was one of those cards that every thing seemed to go wrong. I knew exactly what I wanted to do, but made so many silly mistakes along the way. I wanted to cut the circle out to put the piece of Die cut Lattice work behind. I forgot to cut the circle and was almost sticking it to a piece of card. I was going to stitch round it with "pink" thread. Got the machine out, happily stitching to discover the thread had broken and all I had was holes...........................!!! However the end result is not too bad.
Base card 6 x 6 white card
I have popped in a bit of Netting I found but you really do not see it
Printed off a sheet of My Craft Studio Backing Paper . Looking at it I think it is one from a painting of Stehphanie`s Roses. I have another card I will show tomorrow using the other half. Same sheet of paper but Oh! So! Different from top to bottom
Popped a SB Lattice Die Cut from my Die Cut Box behind the circle cut using a SB Classic Circle Die
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Leaf scroll a Marriane Die, leaves SB Foliage Die
Pearls are done using Cosmic Shimmer Pearl Glue
The card is a little bit Shabby Chic .... just a little
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time,
P.S. the ornaments I have been using are all made by me when I did Ceramics a few years ago.
Trying to be "artistic" with my photography ........................ I did say "Trying" Don`t think it works for me as well as it does for some others.
