Good Morning Ladies,
A bit of a slow day here yesterday, but I was keen to get in the craft room to play, I always like
to open new ink pads and do a little colour swatch, it makes it easier to find matching ink for card stock if you have them ready stamped on a piece of white/black card. The colour on the label can be very deceiving at times! So I did that, used some of my new magnetic sheets to try and sort some
Today's card I made for Paul to send to his Aunt in Canada, sadly his uncle had just died of lung cancer, so sad, Aunty Rita didn't really want loads of sympathy cards but Paul felt that he wanted her to know that she was in our thoughts, so I used the Spellbinders Romantic Rose die cuts that I made when Pat was over a couple of weeks ago, I layered them with Spellbinders Matting dies , I stamped the Justrite sentiment in the centre of the smaller die and added a couple of tiny Camellia Flowers from Creative Expressions Open and Closed Camellia Petals, in black and white.
I took my usual 8 X 8 card and matted it with black card and them white that had been Embossed with the Creative Expressions Floral Brocade Folder, designed of course by Sue Wilson, I placed my focal element at the top centre of the card and run a piece of black satin ribbon across the lower
I hope you like the card, I am finding more and more of the new Spellbinders that I like and that would work very well with Sue's dies too.
Huge Shopping basket from Ally Pally, those die storage cases in the background were a proper bargain, I wish I had bought some now, as the came with 10 pockets in with a double magnetic sheet in each pocket, so twenty sets of dies atleast in each folder! She got loads of dies too and some masks by the look of it, Lynda please let me know how you get on with that Stamp Positioner thingy, Sue and I looked at them at Farnborough but weren't sure about it, great idea though, for people like me that aren't very confident with stamping!
Well that's al for today Ladies except to say that Sam I hope the Doctors Visit went well, I look forward to seeing you back at your number one slot in the morning, after feeding your boys their buttered toast, fingers crossed for you my lovely!
Love and Hugs
