"A Husbands Request"

Hello Blog friends and followers great to have you here once again.
Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to come visit me.  I love that you do that and leave all your lovely comments, I read every one.  Without your wonderful support this Blogging lark would be a total waste of time.  I am sure you all feel the same when you see and read all the comments you receive on your lovey Blogs.
If anyone has found my Wednesday and Thursday could you send them on to me please.   Usual jobs in the house have been done, meals cooked and eaten, washing done and ironed but goodness knows where the time went.  I really seem to have lost those two days somewhere along the line........LOL!!!  Here we go it is the weekend once again, loosing those days has brought that quicker than ever.  
Boys here tomorrow, Mum working, Dad has things to do in the house that will get done quicker if the boys are not there.  Hope it stays dry then we can all go for walks through the woods.  Seems ages since we have done that.  Only downside will be the mucky "wellies" when we get back.
My friend Wilma phoned the other day asking if I would make a card.  She had her friend Margaret`s  Hubby at the door asking "will that girl that makes the beautiful cards make me one for Margaret" ................. now with a request for the "girl" to make the card there was only one answer............Yes!  of course.   Feels great to be called a "girl" at this stage in the game.  So with an extra spring in my step here is what I made:-

Base card 8 x 8
Multiple layers of White and off White card
Signature Die from Joana Sheen to cut out the leaf shape backed with a piece of Tilda paper/card
Leaf  Die Cut used in the bottom right corner
SB Blossom Five Die and Tilda paper/card for the Roses
SB Matting Basics Die to create the frame
Sentiment done on the computer
I made and decorated the box with corners cut from the Tilda paper/card

Delivered this morning Margaret`s hubby delighted.  They don`t do Blogs or computers so I feel I can show it.

 I have entered this into the .......  Hand made flowers

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping by, I really appreciate it
Till next time
Have a great weekend

Patricia   xx

  24. Beautiful card, I love the negative, positive idea. Must try it sometime. I know how you feel about missing days, I can lose whole weeks. I once read that the first 21 years is the longest half of your life. Didn't make any sense at the time, but now....

  31. Hi Patricia,
    what a superb creation. I love every bit of it. No wonder he was delighted. That paper you have made the roses with is soooooooo! pretty, and the colour is fantastic. Superb designing too. Love that really great ivy cutout of the top with that fab paper again just peeking out.

    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
