Hello Blog friends, thank you for visiting me and for all your lovely comments.
Today for the first time in ages I have had some "me" time. That sounds rather selfish but I have really missed just being able to shut myself in the kitchen, make a mess, play with bits of paper and card
John, Audrey and the boys are almost a week into their Adventure trip in America, we are missing them and they still have two more weeks away.
My friend Pearl is at long last getting somewhere with her house and is busy seeing all the carpets being laid today. Next week she starts getting her furniture out of storage. I do hope it has survived, she managed to get some things out before the water got at them. Others things did get damp, hopefully they will be OK . Lots of her treasured possessions were destroyed and had to be dumped. Her cottage is looking good having been stripped right back to the bare brick work and put together again. Although I love it poor Pearl is so sad that the "old cottage" feel has been ripped out of the place. I tried to reassure her that yes it now looks rather modern but once she gets her traditional bits and pieces of furniture back in that will help. Pearl has lots of little antique bits and pieces mixed with more modern things and it all worked before I am sure it will all work once again.
Today`s card is one I did for my "lady" in the village. She is almost 90 and still does most of her "BIG" garden by herself. You should see it, it is absolutely beautiful. She has won so many prizes for "Best Garden in Show" at the local Agricultural Show in Newtyle each year. I noticed the judges walking round it the other day when I was along delivering this card. We will see what she wins this year.
Base card 6 x 6 white card
Piece of white card, I inked the Embossing folder with Fired Brick ink using my Brayer and embossed the card. I think this was the second piece of card I ran through it is very delicate. I had this piece in my box from when I was on the Inking/Embossing Day I had a few weeks ago
Computer generated greeting cut out with a SB Die (don`t know the name) I have had that Die a long time. I dusted the edges with Fired Brick while the greeting was sill in the Die
Roses cut using SB Blossom Five Die and SB Foliage Die for the leaves
Lightly dusted the leaves while they were still in the Die plus just the very small bits I used to create the centres of the roses
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for popping in today I really appreciate your visit
Bye for now
Till next time
