"Who Stole my Week??"

Hello Blog friends, followers and passeres by.  Thank you so much for taking time to come visit me I love having you here. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my Daisy card.  I enjoyed making it, you all know I love making flowers, the more to cut and assemble the more fun.  
I am sorry if I have missed commenting on any of your Blogs, I will get there I promise.
Someone "stole" my week I really do not have a clue where it has gone.
I also got a rather big order for cards which I am slowly working my way through.   My only real problem with the amount of cards is, the customer wants a lot of them "flat" for posting.  "Flat" cards means NO dimensional flowers, I am not good at that.   Once they have been handed over to the customer I will manage to post some.
I have to get a move on today, the boys have asked if they can have a "sleepover" this evening.  Will have to go stock up especially on MILK!!!  No time for for serious crafting when they are here.  Robert and I do craft but that`s the fun stuff.   We are hoping it stays dry so that we can at least go out with them tomorrow.  They love out on their bikes with Grandpa, funnily enough Granny always has something to do in the house.....!!!!  You know the saying  ....  Golf spoils a good Walk ..... well that`s how it is for me.  Although I have my bike I would rather walk the amount of miles they bike.
OK here is a card that has been lying waiting to get on here:-

Base card 6 x 6
Kanban card in dark brown, same card in light brown.  Gone are the days when you could visit their factory and FILL boxes.  John worked for a company down that way.  When he was down for Sales Meetings I went with him and had great fun at Kanban.
I just mixed the browns  
Faux stitching, a little bit of distressing
A few Die cuts, a bit ribbon,  a hand written greeting and there you have it

That's it for today
Thank you very much for calling in I really appreciate it
Have a fantastic weekend and I will see you all soon

"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
