Good Morning Ladies,
I am so honoured that Myra has allowed me to show one of her gorgeous cards today, isn't it gorgeous! I love everything about it, colour and composition!
Here are Myra's instructions.......
I cut a piece of Soft Gold Card from the Foundation Cardstock from Creative Expressions. I taped the Gemini Lyra Die to the bottom and ran it through the GC. I mounted this using Cosmic Shimmer glue on a slightly larger piece of Soft Pink card from the same range. This shows off the beauty of the Lyra Die.
I cut out seven flowers from the Delicate Daisies Set from Sue Wilson. I cut these in differing sizes. Four in pink and three in gold. I layered these , alternating the colours and again using Cosmic Shimmer Glue. I topped them with a Frosted Peach Dazzler from CE. Strangely the pink Dazzlers I had were just the wrong colour for the soft pink. I cut one Grand Vinery Die also in soft pink.
I stamped my sentiment and then cut it out using the second smallest die from the California Collection. I used Tattered Rose Distress Ink to colour it to match.
I assembled all the components and mounted them on three further mats. I finished the bottom left hand corner with a pearly swirl!
I do hope this is clear. I have never done this before and would like to thank Sandra so much for encouraging me to do this. When I started it was going to be square but it finished up oblong.
Thank you Myra, I think that seems quite straight forward to follow.
What have you ladies all got planned for this weekend?
Sophie and Lucy have football today, I think that they could do with one of those Liberty Bodice things on days like today, but they have to make do with thermals! They are more dedicated than I would be. Unfortunately once again I can't go and watch them as the pitch they are playing on is the furthest from the club house and therefore I wouldn't see anything, the grass will be to muddy to try and push the wheelchair across too, never mind I will stay here, cosy and warm and may bake something nice for their return, as well as a hot chocolate with all the extras, whipped cream and marshmallows of course, should I put it on the coffee shop menu ? with a nice home made brownie or chocolate fudge cake!
Both Paul and I have had a dream to open a Craft Shop with Coffee shop/Tea room combined, as his love is 'proper' coffee and has been for many years before it was trendy! We are a great team and I would love working with him, we would make a great team.
Do you think it would work, my first love is card making but a close second is baking!
I want you all to know that you shouldn't feel the need to apologise for 'rambling' on or 'ranting',
I am the most happy when your posts are long and 'passionate', I also love the fact that you check back later on in the day and interact with each other, its amazing, I love it.
You ladies are just amazing, love you all loads.
Myra a HUGE thank you to you my lovely friend, I am so grateful to you allowed me to share your lovely card xxxx
