Maria's Stunning Pleated Card
Maria's Card for Christian
Good Morning Ladies,
Can you believe its November???
We had a busy start to the week, Sophie and Lucy decided they were desperate for some new clothes for 6th Form, so we set off for Swindon, I must have the only two teenagers that DO NOT like shopping, honestly its like a trip to the dentist for them, which makes it a challenge, bearing in mind that they asked to go, but they got a few outfits each, the good thing with my two is they don't need a mirror, if they like it on each other they know it will look ok on them! On the up side we did manage to squeeze in a trip to the Range, but nothing really 'jumped out at me', I got some Kraft card and foam tape, that was it!
Some other fantastic things about the start of this week .......
Janet was in yesterday and sounding so positive, my day was made right there! Xxx
Sonia loved her new job, I was so relieved to read your email Sonia, we were all waiting to hear how you got on, such fantastic news xxx
Karen got to spend a special day in London, going to see Motown The Musical xxx
So a fantastic day all round, let's hope the rest of the week is the same!
Now without further a do.......Today's cards......
Maria, I just love the colours that you have used for your Pleated Card, such a bright, cheerful colour, that works perfectly with the patterned paper on the bottom half of your card, the lace you have used adds a reach elegant touch to your card, the Bow Appliqué finished with those tiny Pearl drops is the perfect centrepiece for your border. The embellishments you have used finish your card perfectly Maria.
I think that your card for Christian was a genius idea Maria, cards like this cannot be bought, so much thought goes into a handmade card, this particular card will remind Christian of the amazing time he had while travelling Hong Kong, I love the addition of the boots and the sentiment at the bottom, I bet Christian loved it !
Thank you so much for allowing me to share your cards with everyone Maria xxx
I think that Sue and I are off to Pat's today, all being well .
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
