Pretty Silouhette card from Jess

Good Morning ladies,
Today we have a beautiful card so elegant and pretty!
Jess has used a Cd Rom called Siloupage (sp), I would actually love to own this CD as it has some very elegant images on if this one is anything to go by.
I love how Jess has built up the image so that the hat stands proud of the head, the feathers finish the hat so perfectly, it looks amazing.
Now just look at the detail that Jess has put into the image, the pearl earrings and necklace, those three black pearls on the edge of the of the frame, it just all adds to the overall beauty of the card.
The five little white roses and two pearl stick pins add the perfect frame to the sentiment that has been matt and layered onto black and white card to match the monochromatic colour theme of the card.
Thank you so much Jess for sharing this gorgeous card with all of us, I for one am Hugely inspired,
I am going to go and look for this Cd rom straight away, so much easier than stamping, particularly with it being a large black area, which can be tricky at the best of times.
I hope you all have a lovely day,
love and hugs
Sandra

  1. Well this is unusual! Me In first, coffee beans ground, fresh croissants just out of oven, some homemade strawberry jam in the chiller, help yourself!
    I hope you love today's card as much as I do, it's one of those 'oh yes' cards, the whole thing really works, thanks again Jess xxx
    More holiday organising today, so much to think about, my head is buzzing!
    Have a lovely day everyone, be back later,
    Love and hugs

  2. Good morning Sandra and ladies.
    Jess, what a wonderful elegant card, a beautiful image and your attention to detail is fantastic.
    Just read back on last nights comments, you were all well behaved, what's happened? I popped in but everything was quiet, then this morning I saw it had livened up later on. Today is going to be a quiet one here, Roberta wants to rest her leg, it's a bit sore, and she has got a long journey home, Charlie and her will have to be up around 5 ( I will be up too) and leave just before 6. To make sure they get through Glasgow, park the car and get her checked in, then they will go get breakfast, she flies at 11 but by the time she gets through security and to her gate will take a while. There will be tears, but we are planing going next year and Tammy told her to plan a return trip for May 2017 to celebrate her 40. She has lots to talk about when she goes home, the photos she has taken of all the places she has been can tell lots of stories. Plus the wedding.
    We will miss her too, and it will be back to just us. The house will be full this evening as Christopher,Angela and the girls are coming also Gillian and Andrew. Tammy spent the day with us yesterday so she said her goodbyes then.
    Everything looking good in here, I see Sandra has rearranged things, do you think she has been in those cupboards looking for that porta loo?? I hope she fines it. It's one of those must have things! I think I read that Sue has a spare one? Sandra, remember you only need the basic amount of things, no saying " well just incase" if you don't have you can either buy or do without. Off to have my tea and I see we have crumpets so I will enjoy one of them, and see who comes in. xxx

    1. Hi Hazel,
      After several more hours that Paul spent searching in the loft last night, I told him to give up and I ordered a portable thingy, not a she-wee as that looked a bit like it could get messy, I saw a thing that has a lid that screws/unscrews and has a lady adaption on the end, quite small and discreet to go and empty too! So if he doesn't find we are covered, it had Sophie & Lucy raising their eyebrows but they are fit enough to trot off to the loo at anytime!
      I am glad that Roberta is having a lazy say today as that means you will too, she has made some amazing, lifetime memories during her visit, so she will have lots to talk about.
      Paul asked me to thank you and Vince, he said that sounded a perfect solution!
      Catch up with you later,
      Love and hugs
      Sandra xxxxx

    2. Hi Sandra I'm glad you got sorted- you wait, middle of the night, raining, huge spider in the loo the girls will be wanting to make use of your equipment! Try not to rush around too much today, it will all sort itself out eventually oh and of course you will now find porta loo now you are no longer looking for it! Xxx

    3. Hello Hazel, I can't believe the time has come for Roberta to return home. Hasn't the time gone quickly. She will certainly be taking some lovely memories of all the hospitality you and your family have extended to her, and being part of all the wonderful celebrations for Julian and Andrew's wedding .
      Roberta wishing you a safe journey home. xx

    Jess-wow, that is one stunning, classy, elegant card. Just beautiful.

    Sandra-no offence but I was shocked to see you being the first to comment. I'm guessing the holiday is very soon by the panic in your recent messages?!

    Yesterday at work was quite dull-no dramas! The individual who is upset with the changes still won't speak to me, luckily my boss has gone on holiday so she might come back on a nicer frame of mind!! At least I only have 6 weeks til our holiday-its a nice thought to be getting away from everything + everyone!

    1. Morning Michele,
      If feel for you sweetheart, there is nothing worse than a bad atmosphere at work, it's not like these changes are your fault, just keep counting down those days to your holiday, we have 5 days after today! Not panicking yet but getting a wee bit stressed, which us nothing unusual for me!
      Sending you a huge hug,
      Sandra xxxx

  4. Good morning Sandra and the Coffee Shop Gang. Hope you are all feeling good!! Today it's pouring rain here, it looks like it could be a "play day" . I really don't have much to day, nothing on the calendar that's a first for ages. Oh! just remembered Audrey is night shift tonight, John will pop along after lunch, bring the boys here to let her get a few hours sleep. Dad will bring them back along tomorrow morning, Audrey will then get a few hours sleep after she has her Breakfast. Guess what I can hear from little voices later .... Granny!! can we just stay??
    JESS:- that is one stunning card, love everything about its elegant beauty.
    Jess makes brilliant cards. I have one on display here to confirm that.
    SANDRA:- did you actually go to bed last night??? You got a few suggestions yesterday re:- the Porta Loo. I just hope one of them brings an answer to your "wee" problem!!!!
    I am over at my usual table with my Tea & Toast. Off to see who's milling about round the Cafe, deciding if they should come in or not. That person who kept walking back and forward thinking (will I, won't I ) must have gone on a trip. Have not seen her this week!!!
    (((((Hugs))))) in the basket by the door as usual. Will be back later to see what going on.
    SANDRA:- you made a super job of the place today, lots of changes. Gives us room for another table for any new customers.
    See you all later. xxx

  5. Good morning Sandra and everyone,
    I'm getting in quick today before the mayhem starts, children awake but quiet, so I'm trying to leave a comment now before we get caught up with whatever we decide to do.
    JESS I love your monochrome card this lady is gorgeous. Thank you for sharing her.
    Sandra, I think I have this CD at home, will check when we return (Thursday )
    If I have your more than welcome to borrow it for as long as you like.
    Pat I have located the stamp you used for yesterday's trainer card, it was littlelamb who gave me a clue when she mentioned Jayne. It's on Stamposaurus web site. Sold in a pack of two 1 Large, 1 Small stamp £6.
    The stamp is designed by Andrea Neville. She has some nice stamps on Jayne's website.
    Well children now up ready to face the day. I hope I will pop back at some point. Whatever you are doing you have a good day.
    Love and hugs to everyone, Brenda XXX

    1. Good Morning Brenda,
      Firstly thanks for the Stamp information, I may have to purchase that one, as it will be a handy teen card stamp!
      I would also very much like to borrow your silouhette Cd, I could just print out a load of images and return it to you, (this next sentence is said in my best super whiney child voice) ..... "You could , if you wanted to make a girl very happy, bring it with you when you come along to the retreat, after all a girl needs her mumma along to take care of her"
      But no pressure, I know you're needed at home too!
      Have a lovely day with the children, don't overdo things though !
      I also need your birthday please Brenda.

  6. Good morning Sandra and all the lovely cafe ladies
    Jess wow what a stunning card to greet us this morning, love the way you have done the hat and the whole monochrome ensemble. What a beautiful card. It has reminded me that I think I have that cd! Bought it many moons ago and made a golf silhouette for my brother in law. I must admit I haven't used CDs for ages and I've got loads of them! Must blow the dust off and revisit I think. Thank you so much for sharing Jess xxx
    Well the weather isn't sure what to do today by the looks of it - sun and cloud at the front of the house, black cloud at the back so I think forecast is wrong and rain is on the cards! I should be going food shopping today but might just pop to the local co op to get something instead as I'm not sure yet what this week has in store! Emma is going to donate blood for the first time this afternoon so I can sit and read my book while I wait for her - would like to donate too but I had a blood transfusion when she was born so I'm not in the right category. I'm proud of Emma choosing to do it though - I think it's her scientific research that has shown her what a good thing it is. Right I must get on and decide whether to put washing on or not! Hazel I hope Roberta has a good flight home, that time has really flown by hasn't it, but it's good you are making plans to see her soon.
    Enjoy your day ladies and see you all later xxxx

    3. I am proud if Emma too My son needed "fresh" donated blood when he had his operations and ai am truly grateful to those that donated I wish I could be a donor but as a Diabetic they won't take it OH does give blood and so proud that he dies especially as he is very squeamish

  7. Morning Sandra and ladies, thank for your comments about my card, it is one of my favourites to do. As Sandra said it is off a cd I bought at SECC years ago from Nigel and Christine's stand. It has lots of silhouette designs and backing papers on it. The semtiment is from Phil Martin.
    The cafe is looking great, a coffee would go down nicely I think. I suppose I better get my a..e in gear as the ironing in beckoning.

    Jess, Love the card ! She is so stylish and with her pearl necklace ,earrings and feathers in her hat you have made it so much more, also love the flowers and the stick pins.
    Sorry but I spitting feathers this morning after someone driven or back in to my son's car and of course left without leaving a note grrr. I'm sad because we live in a cul-de-sac and we all know eachother so would hope if someone know anything they would come forward. I want rest.....
    I hope Saba is ok, she must have a very sore finger after biting it all day and you others are quite nutty too ,I love you guy's hihi
    Lovely Pat, Pete can get he's whole week's Coronation Street on ITV 2 on Sunday Morning around 9.30 am or if you got sky on Catch-up for the episode 'you' missed recording.
    Sunny but very windy day so perfect drying weather but no washing to do tihi so something else will happening after breakfast of bacon and eggs, the smell from the kitchen make me drool ,oooh not a lady like thing to do but I'm not a lady . before anyone ask not a man either last time I checked .Got the hot flushes and everything to show for that.

    4. Did that even before some of them were dressed this morning but sadly no one have heard or seen anything. We got one new neighbour and they live opposite where Christian parked last night and the story is that the "lady" of the house week after they moved in put her foot down, went backford instead for forward and rammed the wall to their next door neighbours downstairs toilet ! Hmmm They have gone to work so will ask around again tonight, very nicely

    5. Maria, go check the neighbours car, some one might have the damage that matches your sons plus see if they have left the colour of they car on his??? Any neighbours got cctv!!! I hate when folk do that, I always told our three if they by any chance dumped a car with their bikes to let me know then I could sort it out, in Germany you have to have insurance for these things with your children and I think it should be here, but an adult to not report it is so bad!!,

  9. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. It is good to see that you were in the cafe early today my lovely but I do know that it means you are stressing about the holiday! Glad that you have given up with the porta loo. The She wee is great when you are out in the open or in woodland etc but I need to find something quieter for our Scout Group Family camp in Sept. I will have to have a look at the thing you have ordered, sounds good. And hopefully it is soundproof! : ) See you in the morning, try not to stress too much today my lovely.
    Jess, your card is gorgeous, and I love how you have decoupaged her hat and added the lovely feather : )
    Diane, I hope that Emma's first donation goes well. Gem has been donating since she was old enough to, she has also carried a Donor card and been on the donor register since she was 9 after seeing my card and hearing what it was for! She, like me, feels very strongly that everyone should have to donate blood unless there is a medical reason not to (I can't because of all of the drugs that I take) Anyway, good for Emma, hopefully she will encourage her friends to join her next time. Tell her to make sure she has plenty of (non alcholic, sorry ladies : )) drink before hand to ease them finding a vein.
    Hazel, enjoy your time with Roberta, I hope her leg feels better for some rest, and that she has a safe and trouble free journey home.
    Patricia and Brenda Lello, have fun with the children today. Patricia, you know that you are going to end up having the boys overnight don't you. If you are anything like me you can't refuse them when you get " Please Gran can we ......" : )
    We have got Phoebe on her own so we are going to be making an owl picture for her bedroom.
    I hope the wind dies down a bit as it is very strong again here. Good drying weather! Have a good day everyone. Take care xx

    2. Now this will probably make you laugh but if you made a padded cozy for the she wee would that muffle the sound? I don't know the shape but perhaps a cafeteria cozy would work? Or pop a sanitary towel in the bottom of it or some loo roll so it has a soft landing!!! Oh what a thought!

    Lovely card today Jess. Love how you've added pearls and deco paged the hat. I to have a silhouette CD but not that one. I've pulled it out to have a play at sometime.
    Thanks Brenda for the info re the stamp. I'm glad Littlelamb gave you a clue. I met her making hers on the make and take stand at Newbury. I'll go and have a look later today. My word Sandra you are up early this morning, mind you your normally up early anyway. But your getting stressed about finding and packing everything up for your holiday. At least you'll ge able to relax after you get through Paris.
    Patricia and Hazel. Before I forget I hope that Roberta has a good flight home and give her a hug and wish her Bon voyage from me. Before I forget, can I be the first to book a space in your suitcases.

  11. Morning one and all
    It's now just the two of us again since 10.00 this morning. We can actually hear the silence in the house!!
    We forget jut how noisy two children can be. They are both good children and very rarely cannot find something to do and so are not so bad it's just the noise that hits you on arrival; stays with you for the vacation; and then silence falls when they depart. We shall now see them now until just before Xmas when they will visit the UK and then we will have to go to the Netherlands in the Spring to their home for a short visit.

    I have not yet caught up on everything that's been happening but will do so over the next few days.

    Jess your card today is just beautiful - I have that CD set and before I started to use dies it was one of my favourites. You have woken memories and so when I return to the UK I shall have to get it out and have a play and see what I can do with a mixture of dies and that CD.

    Hazel I hope you are recovering from your very busy week last week and that after tomorrow your days will return to 'normal'. I'm sure that you and Patricia, and all your family and friends made the most wonderful memories.
    Sheila - I hope your crossing wasn't too bad and that you're enjoying yourself.
    Saba - have you stopped shopping yet?

    Sandra - calm is the order of the day - don't forget all you need is your passports, money and booking confirmation and anything else can be bought over here.

    OK off now to turn the washer on as it's just striking 12.00 so the 'cheap rate' electricity has just kicked in.
    Have a good afternoon everyone.
    Hugs are on their way. Will try and pop in later.

    1. Good morning Janet,
      I was just sat thinking about you when up popped your comment, I was thinking about our journey on a Monday and trying to work out in my head how far you would be from our route, i would so love to call in for coffee, but I think you will too far off the route, we travel from Calais , through Paris and then on the most direct route to Clermont Ferrand which Is the A75 I believe! How much more amazing it would be calling into Marigny than at a service station, plus I could actually collect a real life Janet hug!!!
      Did you get any good bargains at your Brocantes at the weekend?
      I am sure you enjoyed your company very much, but oh the peace when your house is once more your own and you can relax from playing host!
      Sending you huge hugs

    2. Hi Sandra
      It would be fantastic if you could come our way for a cuppa or even a break overnight where you could sleep in a proper bed and have a good rest before continuing onto Spain.
      You could come your normal way round Paris join the A6 and then the A77 to Nevers and then rejoin the A77 down to Moulins and Clemont Ferrand that way. If you didn't want an overnighter then any length of time would be wonderful so that I can just meet you and yes give each other the most wonderful hug that's been waiting for quite some time.

      Nothing was bought at the brocante at the weekend as it was so so hot and far too many people around.

      Try and work on Paul in the nicest possible way of course.
      Special hugs to you.

  12. Good morning Sandra and all your lovely ladies,
    Glad you have found a solution, a friend of mine was once stuck in traffic and so desperate she used the ash tray!! I hope the girls, and Matt if he is going too, are helping you with the preparations.
    Jess, your card is brilliant, love her hat, the image reminds me of Audrey Hepburn and she was gorgeous too.
    Patricia, Brenda and Sue enjoy your grandchildren. I'll be seeing mine soon and my tummy does a little flip when I think of holding them close.
    I am playing today. House is a tip, cooker needs cleaning and I don't care. I am making the lantern to Patricia's instructions (thank you Patricia) and I just have the base and lit to finish and then decide how to decorate it. I've used the mini snowflake striplet and for the acetate I cut up the packaging it came in, I'm a cheapskate. Unusually I have a good satellite signal at the moment, still not strong enough for C&C so I am watching ITV. Hope Peter doesn't pop home and catch me being so lazy!!!
    Oh I have made a batch of tomato and basil soup for anyone popping in for lunch, wonder if Anne will bring us some of her lovely scones to finish off with.
    Love and hugs

    1. Saba it was you struggling to cut the striplet! I couldn't remember who it was and suddenly had a light bulb moment the I forgot to add last night whilst I was watching Sue on the big TV this morning ( fab isn't it this technology lark!). I was cutting some striplets last week and kept getting bits that didn't want to cut all the way through and I couldn't get them any nearer the edge of my plates. I put a single sheet of copy paper on top of the die and it worked a treat, just the fraction more it needed. I was cutting foundation card at the time. The lantern sounds lovely, I must go and have a look.
      Maria Emma got a text from blood people this morning reminding her to drink lots of water so I was really impressed by how organised they are. I've made sure she has eaten breakfast and has taken a glass of water upstairs yo drink whilst she plays her mandolin ( I can hear a tin whistle though so she way be swapping instruments around!). Right I must get on! Xxxx

      John has just left to go pick the boys up. Bucketing rain so don't know what they will be doing. Robert likes to craft, might get him helping me. Thomas will be happy trawling over maps or an Atlas with John. The other thing could be watching episodes of Dads Army.....yes! Dads Army he loves watching them.

    3. Saba, Rachel and Peter are away in Devon with the girls. They have very poor internet connections but the girls have discovered that they can ring me on Eleanor's new i-phone. Typical conversation with Zoe "Grandma, they wouldn't let me sing at the Karaoke", me "Why not", Zoe "The comedian wants to come on", me "never mind, you can sing tomorrow" Zoe "Oh, o.k. I love you". Phone put down, phone rings, I answer it - Zoe "Grandma, can I speak to Grandad - Grandad, they would let me sing" ...... and so the conversation was repeated!!! Don't you just love them xxx

    4. Diane, yes I did struggle cutting the striplet even though I used a shim. I think it could be the cardstock, it's black and I know it sounds daft but I am sure I read somewhere that black was harder to cut through. any way it's done now.
      Maureen I spent half an hour yesterday face timing with Max and Abi, half the time I was looking at minecraft and the other half a butterfly of Abi's which flaps its wings. Xxxx

  13. Good morning Sandra and Friends,
    Well Maureen and I had an IT lesson from Saba last night! I have to say Saba is an excellent teacher although can be a little short on patience with her slower pupils, ha ha. It's true what they say - learning can be fun! Mind you I don't think they had that much fun in mind!!
    The things you learn on this blog!
    Jess - your card today is so stylish! I love it . I've never used CD's in crafting - after last night you can probably guess why. I love the back and white and your attention to detail. Thank you!
    Well, today I have to finish gluing clothes pegs( wooden) on to the back of MDF birds! Clothes pegs are hidden but the birds once decorated should make pretty magnetic photo or message holders. I have 20 to make , plus my examples. Isn't life exciting?
    It's rather dull here today but dry so far .
    Sandra - I do hope you get all your packing sorted out and that the loo problem has been solved. If anyone deserves a lovely holiday - you do and Paul who looks after you so well. I hope you have a lovely family holiday and no problems en route!
    Well I'll now go and read what everyone has been up to and I know a quick way to do that now! Yeah!
    Lots of love,
    Myra xxx

  16. Thank you ladies you are all so kind wishing Roberta a safe jounery, she doesn't think it will be a quiet one, but you never know. She gone off to have a lie down, I think it's that feeling off going home that's the problem, she has loved every minute off being with our friends and family, taken aback by the hospitality.
    Our sister Fiona is coming down with her children, but Roberta asked if I minded her just going to her bed, told her it was fine. I think it would be to much, my lot are here tonight too so it's a lot going on. Fiona will understand. We are all on a bit of a downer today. I think between Roberta going and just the aftermath of the wedding. Our Gillian is trying to get the house back to some sort of normality today, as she is back to work tomorrow. They are having their honeymoon later. They are away for a weekend not this one but the next. Didn't want everything at once. Right I am going to have a nice cup of tea, and see what goodies there is today. Xxx

  23. Poured rain here all afternoon. Dad came for the boys who left under protest. Roberts parting words were "bye Granny see you in the morning.
    Thomas came with BIG tub of "stuff" 75% of the contents he been his dad's. He set out all the soldiers, tanks etc:- played for quite a while. He then rummaged and found a DVD ... The Wild Geese .... a real oldie of Grandpas. They sat and watched the whole movie wth snacks of course. Robert played away on his own quite happily. Then he came to see if he could help me. I was making a Thank You card, he cut out 3 Happy Birthdays for me. Then he cut out the pieces for a flower I was adding, all this on the CuttleBug. I am having problems with my wrists. Holding the machine and turning the handle, on any machine ... It hurts!! I have had 3 Cut n Boss machines and none of them have worked. They have all had to be uplifted, still waiting for the refund to appear on my Credit Card.
    Had something to eat, off to sit with my feet up. I will look back see what you have all been doing this afternoon.

  27. I love your card Jess I use a few cd's to craft and your card has given me an idea (don't know if it'll work) but in Serif you can turn images into silhouettes So out will come the MCS Art Deco ladies cd I can have two images,one as a silhouette and one as a "proper' image and decoupage it! Well that's the theory
    I love SABA's idea (was it Saba?) about plugging the bottom of the she-pee to deafen the noise and I can guarantee that the girls will use it at night The dark, the spiders - yeuck

  29. Built in ovens tonight? Every day / night is a new product discussion on here, I have a double built in oven, up at a level I can manage, top oven has the grill, also use my George Foreman, I want one that you can remove the plates to put in the dishwasher. Roberta couldn't get over how everything is built in and unseen in my kitchen. Roberta is off to bed I gave her a Margaret rice bag to put on her knee, so hope it helps with the pain. I am just enjoying the quiet, as the house has been busy all afternoon and evening, lots of hugs and goodbyes, not looking forward to the morning and having to say goodbye. It's been lovely having her, if she had her three puppies here she wouldn't leave. Tomorrow I have to get Anna's birthday card made and sent, so after I walk Harris I will set to and get it made. xxx
