Thanks for stopping by again today. I am hoping the wind has died down a little for everyone today
as it was just a little too much yesterday, I hope you all stayed home warm and safe.
Now todays card, was obviously influenced by Sue Wilson, the Lyra die by Creative Expressions was not originally on my wish list, but I had the pleasure of having a go with Pat's (witney) on Wednesday and I have to say I fell in love.
I am sure if I had more time to play with this die (please Santa if you are listening), I have tried to be a very good girl! I could come up with many more ways to use it, but putting it at an angle across a piece of Teal coloured card was my first thought, I stamped the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment on the bottom of a piece of coconut white card and then added the teal card on top and then matted this onto another teal and then a card. I was unsure as to what to put on the top, so I opted for a spray of white roses of varying sizes to try and follow the design of the die and then I added some CE pearl swirls coming from behind the roses. I finished with a bow of off white seam binding, topped with a pearl.
let me know what you think, because, well that's why I do it! hhaha xx
Steph, thanks for your message yesterday, you and my daughter seem to have the same issue although yours sounds more advanced, bless you It must be terrible, as I know how miserable Becca can be, I honestly wish I had it instead of her, I hate the fact that both of my older children are suffering, the both have Psoriatic Arthritis, so she has both to contend with, but fortunately they both get on with their lives as best they can, you hardly ever hear them complain, I bet you will be glad when this order is over, are you marketing on Sunday? xxx
Tandy I am so sorry you didn't get to see your grandchildren on Tuesday as I know how much you were looking forward to it, was it that you weren't well enough or they didn't make it?, I hope you get to see them over the next few days, sending you big cheery hugs xxxx
I got to go shopping with my son today, what a treat, we don't get to spend much time together, we had a good laugh and got some bargains, he takes after his dad for looking for deals!
Lucy had the doctors too, apparently she has a.......what do you think they said?????? what do they always say......yes you guest it, a virus, or a viral throat infection! hindered by playing 12 hours of clarinet in the past three days. but they finish at lunch time tomorrow so she can then have two weeks rest.
Well I must go now, shopping to do (online today) can't have too much excitement in one week!
huge hugs to all of you lovely ladies,
