Hello and welcome to my little corner of Blogland. 
Thank you so much for all the visits and wonderful comments, I love reading them all.
Some of you have asked for a Tutorial for the Bags. There is one but you will have to scroll back for it.  I think it is the 4th November 2012.  It is just before the Roses one.  If I was clever on the computer I could get the Tutorials on my side bar.  I am not so I am afraid you will just have to scroll back......sorry about that!!!
This is a very quick Post today I really do not know where all my time has gone but it has certainly flown away.
Week past Monday Robert phoned to tell me I had to send a reply to the School for the invitation we had been given. We had not seen the R.S.V.P. on  the invitation.  It was to view their Project  "School in my Granny`s Day" at the school, which was last Friday.  He wanted me to make a card for the Acceptance it is:-

Base card 6 x 6
I embossed my card in a folder I had.   I think it was a Darice one from Crafters Companion although I am not 100% sure on that
I wanted something kind of school like and it was the only thing I had
I distressed it with a combination of Peacock Feather and Vintage Paper TH Distress Ink Pads
Matted the Acceptance onto brown card and popped that on the front

I thought this combination might be quite good as a quick "man card" for maybe a man whose job or hobby included measuring.  
Nothing exciting but that it for today
I am working tomorrow at the Tearoom.  The boys are coming for a sleepover so goodness knows when I will be back with a Post or find time to comment on your Blogs.  Please forgive me I will get round you all as soon as possible.
Thank you for calling by today I really appreciate it
Have a wonderful weekend

  2. Hi Patricia,

    What a lovely card for an acceptance, fits the bill perfectly.

    Hope you have a great time tomorrow. Don't worry about not replying to all the blogs, I am sure, like me, there are many of us who don't get enough time to check everyone's blog out (and I only have about 14! Lol!) We all know you will take a look when you get chance. Surprising how quick the time goes each day, only wish it went that quick when I'm working lol!

    Love & Hugs

  3. A lovely card which fits the bill, simple but lovely. I know the feeling not being able to comment as often as I would like but time just flies. Don't burn yourself out girl try and have some "me" time.

  4. Hi Patricia
    Clever card to send to the school. I bet it was the best one they had.
    I was going to suggest a link to your bag tutorial but I don't think you use them either but if you enter challenges you would link the same way you do to a challenge but to your tutorial instead. . . . . . .if that makes sense.
    Have a great day.

  18. Hi Patricia,
    lovely card. Great embossing folder too.
    You know your tutorials you can put them on a button on the top of your blog like mine.
    It;s quite easy. Go into design on the top of your page after signing in.
    This will take you to the page with your blog design, on the left hand side your will see pages click on that and start a new page just like your post you can then link your tutorials to that page.
    Have a go when you have time. If you get stuck let me know, but it's just like when you post. Hope you can manage it.
    Lots of love. Jenny L.

  19. Great card Patricia, I hope the boys didn't scare you too much last night?
    Hope you have a good weekend in the coffee shop. Hugs Erika.
