"More my Style again"

Hello Blog friends, has anyone else felt it a lot colder today??
Did the food shopping, fridge and cupboards full once again for a couple of days.  That should keep us going till we go off for our couple of days next week.
Spent most of the afternoon at John & Audrey`s the boys are off school till Tuesday.  Thomas "needed his Grandpa" he is sick.  School closed for a break and in bed sick .......what a bummer!!!   Just one of the many bugs going about I suppose.  Any time Thomas is ill he needs his Grandpa with him.  I think is comes from when he was born.  He was in an incubator for 48 hours, John spent so much time sitting with him holding his hand.  We were all there at some point but I feel a bond was created between those two that is there to this day.   Robert only ever wants his mum when he is ill.

Another card I made when I had "Play Time" yesterday.
I have used the same Die as I used on the card I did not like..................but I do like this one, more my style.
White base card approx 5 x 7
NitWits backing paper from a LOTV  Paper Pad
Frame cut using 1st and 2nd larger Dies from SB Opulent Ovals set
Heartfelt Lace Border Die
Heartfelt Classic Leaf Die
Cheery Lyn Chrysanthemum Strip Die 
Some swirls I received as a wee gift from my Blogging friend Rita some time ago.
Some other flowers punched out using a Martha Stewart Punch
Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts popped in the centre of the flowers

I remember seeing something similar to this design when Hazel and I were trawling Blogs while we were on holiday last year.  It stuck in my mind because it was so my style.  I think it could have been the HeartFelt Blog.  Who ever and where ever I thank them for the inspiration.

Thats it from me for today folks
Thank you so much for taking time to came calling.   I really appreciate that you take time out of your busy day to visit me.
Till next time

  8. Morning Patricia, Awwww that's such a lovely story of Thomas and Grandpa, I hope Thomas gets well soon, a definite 'bummer' when you are off school to end up being ill !!
    Your card is really pretty, loving all the flowers and foliage and the backing paper is really lovely.
    I was trying to make the origami boxes again yesterday afternoon, managed to get two 'bottoms' done, but decided to craft in my craft room rather than bring all the components downstairs, it was hard work trying to do the 'folding' in such a small space (my desk is cluttered haha).
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
