Well folks I only managed a little "playtime" yesterday. My neighbour Isobel donned her "wellies" and made it across for the afternoon. Her son and his partner have split up, she just needed someone to chat to. So a few cups of tea, some tears, then a dose of good old laughter Isobel went home a whole lot happier than she was when she arrived.
I had started to get some bits from my Bit Box together to make a few cards before she phoned asking to come across. I pushed them to the side overnight and got on with putting them together this morning. I had cleared a lot out of the Bit Box (mainly Christmas stuff) and found some nice bits that I thought I could use.
Here are some I made:-
Base cards are bits of A3 sheets PMD Hammered card.
I use lots of this card, I had a fair amount of 3 maybe 4 inch strips which I usually cut & fold to make cards for the boys to use. I actually do like making little cards myself.
Last week I was showing Robert how to use the Distress Inks. I had a few bits coloured during the teaching process. Mine of course were pinks, purples and Blues. I have used these to make some cards.
Sympathy Card I stamped a Die Cut square with a very old Memory Box Drift Flowers Stamp.
Card on the Pink Spot Envelope I used a Memory Box Die (Stuck on a magnetic sheet no Idea what it is called)
Other pink card is a Marianne Die (nameless again) I cut it twice put them together lifted apart with a tiny Foam Pad, coloured plus a sprinkle of glitter.
Sympathy Card fits a standard A6 envelope. I made the other ones using my Memory Keeper Envelope Board and some freebe papers.
