I have been rather busy doing not a lot these past few days. You know the kind of thing ... nothing desperate needing done but seems to take you ages to do it.
I do like to get all the usual "daily routine" things done as soon as possible that way I have time to "play".
The old lady in the village that I make cards for was needing a Birthday Card. Oh! she phones me early, maybe 10am. "to give me plenty time" to make these cards ...... she needs them for when Lawrence the Postman gets to her street .. approx 12.30. We are very Rural, the Postman comes in his little red van!!! Lawrence takes any mail we have ready and stamped which is great, he sorts it all when he gets back to the depot. We find that any mail he deals with arrives at its destination very quickly.
Anyway here is a very simple card I made yesterday:-
Nothing too fancy but can I have one of your flowers on it please, was the request.
Base card Pink PMD card stock
Piece of paper from a FreeBee Paper Pack
White PMD card Die cut with a Darice Die from http://www.hixxysoft.com/ my usual supplier did not have this Die when I wanted it.
I usually get all my Dies from http://www.iconuk.co.uk/ they are amazing. Order early in the morning and delivered here in Rural Perthshire next day if they have it in stock.
Ok! back to the card!!!
Rose made using Spellbiners "A Grand Life" Garden Blooms Die Set.
Leaves were a MB Die Cut that was in my Die Cut Bit Box. I just cut it apart to fit
Pearls from my stash
I sent along some Pink Tissue and a piece of ribbon. In the past I have shown Mrs McGowan how to wrap cards with the Tissue & Ribbon before she pops it in a Jiffy Bag for posting. That way who ever is getting it receives it like a little gift. If she was handing it over I would have made a box.
I have had this Die for a while, don`t use it a lot as it does not cut out the little bit between the "i" and the "r"in Birthday. I think it should but it does not anyway it makes a very quick card.
Right that`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for calling by, I really appreciate that
Till next time
