"Birthday Tag"

Hello Blog friend, Followers and poppers by.  Great to have you here, I hope you like what you see and call again soon.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Oldie For Friday.  I have only been Blogging for 2 years, lots I offer for this will have been seen by my long standing followers.  I feel rather guilty subjecting you to these again and expecting comments.  I thank you all anyway.  I am still not crafting much with being out and about a fair bit.  Yesterday was a "rest day" ....... so called, we just were not away on any adventures.  House cleaned, washing done, ironed and away.  
We had the boys overnight.  After a cycle run with their Grandpa they were bathed and ready for bed.  Robert was in bed and sleeping by 9.30pm no second telling him. Football Kit all ready and waiting for morning.  He was ready for putting it on before breakfast till I mentioned he really would not want Chocolate Spread all over his shirt!!!!  Thomas he slept on while I took Robert to his Football Match.  Daddy was there waiting for him, he is the coach so I was able just to drop Robert off.
I did get some time to play yesterday, here is what I made.  

The Rose was made some time ago, I was not happy with it.  It has been shifted from place to place till I finally decided to use it.  
TH Key and Honeycomb Dies
Sizzix Susan`s Garden Rose Die
SB Foliage Die
Ribbon from my stash

That`s it for today folks
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Have a fantastic weekend, I will try to get round you all A.S.A.P

  22. Hi Patricia
    Lovely tag. The rose is lovely but I know it takes a lot of cutting to make it. You have a lot of patience and skill my friend.
    Enjoy any upcoming adventures!

  25. Hi Patricia
    I have just discovered your blog and you have some really lovely work displayed I love your beautiful roses.
    I don't want to be a clever so and so but \I noticed your comment on Tina Eldridge's blog, I have the same range of machines and had the same problem with embossing but thanks to Christina Griffiths (her blog is she suggested to very lightly spray your card with water before embossing and you get super results. I hope this may be useful to you, she has lots of excellent little videos covering lots of useful things. Christina now works for Spellbinders and is on C & C this Monday 8am and 10am.
    I do hope you don't mind me leaving you a comment.
