"Bits & Buttons"

Welcome Blog friends, followers, and casual passers by.  
Thank you for calling in I love having you here.
Well folks don`t know about you guys, I went to bed on Monday night and woke up this morning .... it`s Friday!!!!  I know with the longer evenings and the past few brighter days means more is getting done round the house.   Come on!! who took Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday away???? or was it them that passed in that flash I saw??
Met Hazel this morning, we caught up on all the chat we missed out on with not meeting up on Wednesday.  
Had my friend/neighbour Isobel over last night asking me to show her how to use her new Grand Calibur.  I am sure she could have worked it all out for herself but we had good fun playing.  She went home with loads of Die Cuts she cut from some of my dies, she only has a few of her own at the moment.
Elaine comes this evening, she usually comes Thursday but was Baby Sitting last night.  It has all worked out fine.  Good job John is so easy going and always finds plenty to do in the evening even if it is reading or watching television.
Nothing exciting planned for the weekend as yet!!  in this house one phone call can lead to lots of things!!!!
Was tidying away bits and pieces from playing with Isobel, plus bits of card & paper used at the classes on Tuesday.  I managed to make a card with some of it.

Base card 6 x 6
Pink card stock ...  bits
Papers printed from a CD
SB Blossom Five for the Roses
SB Foliage for the leaves
Buttons from my button jar and some pearls

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in I really appreciate it
Till next time

I have added this to a button

  20. Morning Patricia,
    A bit box card that's beautiful. The flowers as always are so pretty.
    Know what you mean about the days flying by, I thought I would have lots of time when I retired but sadly it's not the case, no sooner am I getting up it seems to be time to go to bed again.
    Mind you I don't do much housework now as hubby took over when he retired.
    Anyway have a good weekend whatever you do.

  26. Your bits made up into some of my favorite things. The rose dp reminds me of old time wallpaper, seen in a lot of the restored houses. They don't seem to make such pretty designs now (at least I can't find them!) It made such a delicate background for your gorgeous roses. Liked the dotted dp behind the pretty vintage rose paper too. Glad you had a chance to have such fun with your friends. Always good to have that & help someone learn the tricks to a new tool. TFS & Hugs. Happy wkend.

  27. This is amazing!!! LOVE those gorgeous flowers and I adore the beautiful colors and patterns! Thanks for joining us at House of Cards! :) HUGS and happy weekend! Mynn xx
