Another shocking day of weather here. This is the morning I normally meet Hazel, it was so bad we decided to call off. I know we are not nearly as badly effected as some people. There is really no point risking anything by going out in the howling wind and lashing rain if it is not absolutely necessary. Hazel if off work this week, her family are off on their Skiing Holiday. Hopefully we can meet up before her break finishes!!!! The weeks go so quickly these days.
Thank you for all your lovely messages yesterday. I told Wilma what I had done and about all your beautiful comments. She says "Thank you very much, your thoughts and prayers are very welcome and comforting"
Yesterday I had to keep myself busy, I kept thinking about Jackson. The fact that Robert was born the very same day makes us so grateful for what we have. Robert is a wee devil at times, other times he is such a little Angel................he is just a typical BOY!!!
Keeping busy meant "Crafting". I sorted out my card and paper. I had some sheets I had taken out and not used. They are all back in the appropriate boxes, apart from a few that had curled up corners or a bit cut off them, decided to use them up.
Here is one of the cards I made, I will show some of the others later. That means I have things to show you for a few days.
Base card is an odd size approx 41/2 x 8 I did not want to cut the piece of printed paper so I worked round that
Various colours of card stock, I distressed the pink card for a slightly shabby effect
Paper printed from Florigorphy CD 2 from Create & Craft
Corners cut from a Die I got in a kit I got some time ago. It was a Becca Feeken Kit
I embossed the corners with gold embossing powder, sanded them back a little, again for a slightly shappy effect
Piece of lace from my box threaded with Organza ribbon
Bow from the same ribbon
SB Blossom Five Die for the rose
SB Foliage Die for the leaves
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by. Hope to see you again soon.
Till next time
