Good Morning Ladies,
I feel like I have to mention and send heartfelt condolences to all those affected by the unbelievable atrocity that happened in Manchester, how somebody could stoop so disgracefully low as to intend to kill and maim young children is beyond all comprehension. It was only a few weeks ago that we dropped our 3 girls off at a similar concert, I cannot imagine what the families of those involved must be going through. They are very much in our thoughts.
Today's card is a special, pretty birthday card, for a special someone!!!
I used my 'Detailed Floral Thinlits' dies to create this unusual card fold, it's kind of a fancy 'Easel' card, I used a pretty peach card and 'Peekaboo Peach' ink to create this card, if anyone is interested recreating the shape I am happy to share the dimensions etc. I was inspired by a card similar in design by a lady called Ann Melvin on Pinterest. I can see that this die set is going to be used a lot, it's very versatile and very pretty.
Sue came over yesterday too, she used the same design to create a wedding card in purple and white which looked stunning too. We were actually very productive, both getting a whole card made, which is surprising as we spent an hour or two watching the tragic events in Manchester unfold.
I'm looking forward to seeing Pat today, more crafting , YAY!!!
Brenda we have had a tortoise for years, my brother Michael's first job was in a Pet shop and somebody bought in a tortoise they could no longer care for, he had no idea of her age but ended up adopting her, she (Daisy) is still going strong 35 years later! What is your tortoise called?
How many of you have pets, I know Sue has Bearded Dragons, which are unusual pets, Val has her cute cats and darling doggy. Maybe we should have some photos, we did it a couple of years ago, be nice to update .
Lilian, love the idea of adding Star Anise, will give that one a try, thank you xx
Janet, how did your card go down at Knit and Natter ?? I'm sure they loved it, I hope that they were grateful that you stepped in at late notice! Xx
Well that's all for today my lovelies, I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs hugs to you all,
