"Free day at last!!"

Hello and welcome to my Blog.
Hope you are all safe and well during these terrible storms.  We have been lucky so far here in the N.E. of Scotland.
Grandpa won the Paper Aeroplane game on Sunday.  Thomas was second, Robert 3rd and Granny last.  i used all my energy making the blooming things!!!!!
Thank you so much for calling by and leaving me so many nice comments today, I love that you do that.  I have had a few new callers who have left me lovey messages.  I will check them out soon, hopefully they have active Blogs so I can return the favour.  Have you seen the beautiful tribute to me has done.  Pop over and have a look he has some fantastic work and wonderful Tutorials on his Blog.
I actually have a "whole day FREE",  not had that for so long.  When I say free I did do the Monday cleaning, washing, ironing and cooking here at the Homestead.  What I mean by free is no appointments, no classes to do (projects done for that tomorrow) no working, no boys, (not that they are any bother), no shopping.  So all in all I had some time for "little old me"
I am in the process of making lots and lots of Roses for Gift Boxes I have been making for a Craft Fair at the Tearoom next month.  Hazel and I had decided not to do any Craft Fairs this year however we could not refuse to do this one.  I really enjoyed just leisurely playing away this afternoon.  I also made this card.  Not for any reason just felt like making it.

White base card approx 5 x 7
Pink card embossed with Sue Wilson`s Lattice Heart Embossing Folder
Strips of white card from the Bit Box with ribbon round them
White card cut using SB  Opulent Oval Die.  Smaller Die from the same set to cut the sentiment which is computer generated.  I drew round the small Die to place behind the sentiment 
Roses made using SB Blossom Five Die.  Foliage SB Foliage Die
Roses and leaves are lightly inked with TH Seedless Preserve

 That`s it for today

Thank you so much for taking time to visit I really appreciate that
Till next time

  1. Hi Patricia I did mention on your blog comments that I too was going to the SECC on the Thursday. It was a mad day mind as hubby and the boys turned up to go home before I'd gone all around both halls. Gutted! I have decided next year I am either meeting my mum or taking a mate then we can have all day to play.
    I hope you had fun.
    Super card, enjoy making flowers, I am too but of the crochet variety.
    Happy crafting, hugs Erika.

  2. Hi Patricia

    That doesn't sound much like a free day with all that housework going on!! LOL!!!

    A gorgeous card here. I really love your flowers .. .. they are always so beautiful.

    I have been back tracking and looking at what I have missed and just have to comment on your Grandson's writing about you. How lovely was that!! I just love the last line. "Granny makes me feel happy". What more could you want?

    I hope you have a good week and thank you for all your lovely visits to my blog. Sorry I don't always make it straight back.

    Love Jules xx

  9. Hi Patricia
    wonderfully pretty card. Love the composition.
    No wind damage that I know of round these parts but there were flood issues.A usual round trip of 15 mins to take Mr Duck to work took an hour due to traffic jams in several areas. Could have been worse though.
    Good luck with the challenge.
