"On Your Special Day"

Hello and welcome to my Blog.
Thank you for visiting me and leaving all your lovely messages regarding Robert`s writting about his granny  -  ME!!    It did bring a big lump to my throat and I had a tear in my eye when I read it at the school.   I do try to return the favour of commenting on the Blogs of all who come visit me.   If I have missed anyone over the past few days I do apologise.  It`s life in the Fast Lane here at the moment.
When John Jnr got the Job he has we knew there would be times when we would be called on to keep the boys.  Today was one of these occasions.  Mum a Midwife was working. John should have been off but was called away to a meeting. He dropped the boys off at 11am  picked them up at 4pm.  No problem we love having them.  Thomas is a great one for making up games.  Today I got the request to make "paper aeroplanes"   Now that`s one thing I have never been good at niether has their Grandpa.  However between us we got them made.  We then had a competition to see who's plane would fly the furthest down the hall.  Thomas laid out markers, we got points for distance.......Oh! its all fun and games in this house.
Today`s card is one I made in a hurry on Friday.   Got a phone call needing a quick card, how quick?  Well its for a wedding we are going to tomorrow!!!!  People amaze me they have all that time from the when the invitation comes in and they leave things to the last minute. So very plain and simple, customer delighted, that`s the main thing.

White base card 5 x 5
White card embossed with Sue Wilson`s Lattice Hearts Folder
I stamped the JustRite Sentiment before cutting with SB Lacy Squares Die
White Organza ribbon from Mieflower for a triple bow.  Their ribbon ties the best bows IMO

That`s it for today catching up with some orders that have to be in the post for Tuesday morning.  Plus I have to finish off putting together Tuesday`s class projects.
Thank you for popping in today I really appreciate it
Till next time, stay safe from these storms that have been predicted

  7. oh, liebe patricia....ich kann einfach nur schwärmen...zauberhaft gelungen...
    liebe grüsse für die neue woche....

  8. Morning Patricia, So glad you had a good day with the boys, I must admit I don't think I could remember how to fold a paper plane now, it's been ages since I last made one ha ha. Who won the contest ??
    Your card is really gorgeous and so elegant. It is so extraordinary how some people leave everything until the last minute, talk about pressure on you when you got the phonecall, but you certainly produced a 'work of Art'.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  9. Love that you felt your card was 'plane' and simple!! They're on the brain now :) You might be interested in this for when the boys come to visit again;
    They could also possibly have a bash at a spot of origami? LOADS of fun tutorials on line for this. You never know, they could be creating potential card toppers for more of those last minute requests!! Have a great day Patricia. Jenny xxx

  18. Very elegant card Patricia. I love this die because you don't actually need to use lots of embellishments as it can stand on it's own. Christine xx

But this card is simply elegant and the sentiment says it all xx luv it xx GailT xx
