"Daisy Daisy"

Hello Blog friends, followers, and passers by.  Thank you for taking time to call in, I hope you enjoy your visit and I see you again sometime soon.
I have to welcome my latest follower Viera is wonderful to have you join me on this amazing journey in Blogland.
Today has been a beautiful day, still rather chilly in this neck of the woods.  We can cope with that as long as the sun shines.
Question:- do you ever get a day where you can`t be bothered with "yourself" let alone anything else???   Well that`s the kind of day I have had today.  Lots needing done but just could not get myself moving to do it.  John took himself off to his "playground"  in in the attic where he has his model railway.  He even shut the door behind him .......... so I suspect he felt the vibes!!!!!
I had a couple of cards that were orders, they have been picked up so I can show you one of them today.

 I went looking for corner Dies that I had in mind to use for this ....... could I find them???
Lots of my followers know my sister Hazel (hazelsbasketsofjoy) and I share our Dies. Guess where they are Yep!! with Hazel.  I really should write down the ones I lend her.  We trust each other and know they are safe so I don`t bother.  Would help stop searches if I took note of what I had lent Hazel 

Base Card 6 x6
Corner made by cutting a Marianne Die in half diagonally
Flowers:- smaller ones Cheery Lynn Die -  Larger SB Delicate Aster
Pearls from my stash
Foliage a MB Die
Organza 25mm ribbon for triple bow from MeiFlower

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

  12. Hi Patricia
    Do I have days like that? Blimey, sometimes I have whole weeks like that hahaha!
    Beautiful here today so washing done and dried in the warm sun. . . In fact, I was in a T-shirt until about 7pm and we haven't had the heating on for days.
    Anyhoo, love your floral fabulousness. The aster die has had a hammering from me recently but its soooo pretty. Gorgeous organza too. Hope you feel in sorts again soon chuck.

    Wow! stunning card, flowers must have taken an age to cut, they are beautiful.

  19. Morning Patricia, A gorgeous card, beautiful aster flowers, I love it !!
    I get that 'syndrome' quite often, it might be a 'Patricia' thing haha !! but I think not.
    We had horrid weather all weekend here, but Graham went to the preserved railway he volunteers at yesterday, an hour away from where we live (in the car), and he came back with sunburn !!!!! the weather here was dark cloud and really, really cold, brrr, it is really strange, and I know that some places had 20 degrees yesterday, well done to those lucky peeps, but let's share the sun out, pleeeeease hahaha !!
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  20. A really beautiful card Patricia. Fabulous dies and gorgeous colours!! I'm sure we all have days like that! I certainly do, but they come and they go. Hugs Christine xx

  21. A gorgeous card Patricia, what a lovely blend of colours the Asters are...look life like!

    huge hugs
    Mau xx

  26. Very nice card, filled with beautiful flowers. Thank you for the welcome.

  27. I love this bouquet on your card Patricia it is so beautiful, such gorgeous colours. I had to giggle about the 'location' of your dies! You are such a kind sister but making a note would help you in the long run - lol! I am having one of those days today btw - I have been sitting looking at a digi I have to colour since 9.00am this morning (now 4.10pm) and I just started to do some return commenting - instead!!! Oh well, onwards and upwards!

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  28. Oh dear! Yes, I've had those days were you can't get going and can't stand your own company. This is a fabulous card and that ribbon is so lovely. How fun!

  29. The funny thing is that one of the first things that comes to mind whenever I think of you is flowers! You really are a flower girl Patricia, I'm extremely fond of them! This is such a fabulous card, flowers galore, a girl couldn't wish for more!! Hugs, Ira xox

  30. I love this bouquet of Asters Patricia, the color arrangement and background die cut are perfect.

    PS When I have one of those days usually my attempt at card making goes in the trash.

    Hugs Diane

  31. I love these asters too, and they look super on this card. I've had a day like yours too. Started several jobs, finished none, even wrote a list and didn't complete and only commenting at 11pm. Oh well, might be closer to human tomorrow.

  32. Each time I see one of your cards, I think it more beautiful than the last...this one's no exception. Love all these flowers. They are awesome and atop that lovely lacey background. Stunning. Laughed about your hunting dies. I don't have a "Hazel", and I STILL hunt for mine!!! At least you can think where it might be. I just know I can't find 'whatever' in the mess!! TFS & Hugs. Yep, I get those days too. Hubs usually knows to give me a wide berth then too. That's when it's nice to have a basement lair & stay away from each other for a bit of space.

  33. Hi Patricia, this is fabulous, love all the flowers and the pretty dies in the background look like trellis, beautiful.

    Love & hugs

  34. Hi Patricia

    A beautiful card. I bet your customer and the recipient were well happy!

    Gorgeous colours!

    I hope you feel happier with yourself today .. .. you have probably worn yourself out a little with all your hyper-activity.

    Have a lovely day!

    Love Jules xx

  35. Hi Patricia, this is a gorgeous card - I think it's probably my favourite of yours now. You have matched the colours of the flowers so beautifully. You must have crafted yourself out of your mood creating something like this! x

  36. Stunning and gorgeous card, love the asters and the colours scream out the it...thanks for your comment on my vintage card...why don't you make one and enter the challenge. Oh and BTW I am having one of your days today...xx

  37. Beautiful card - luv everything about it xx GailT xx

  38. Beautiful card Patricia, love your arrangement of flowers. I also have to make a list of anything that is elsewhere. I always have an alternative to use but once something sets in my mind, that's it. Hope you are enjoying your messy time. xx Flora

  39. Thanks for visiting my desk post today! I have such a big room for crafting because I'm in the living room, right inside the front door. I figure the living room is for *living* right?!?! What better way to live?! I do have to share with the cats and the couch. The cats take more room. Hubby has the master bedroom for a "man cave" and we sleep in the smaller bedroom. It all works out.

  40. wow, what a stunning card Patricia.
    i love the flower arrangement and the pretty design.
    great work my friend and hugs to you.

  41. Fab card Patricia. Love the flowers. x

  42. You really do make the most gorgeous flowers Patricia. Jenny x
