Good Morning Ladies,
My lovely friend Danielle also made a 'Wings' themed card last week that I didn't get to post in time for Sunday so I wanted to make sure it got it's day in the spotlight, it's a gorgeous card made using the Stampin'Up! 'Petal Palette' Suite, Danni has taken a piece of the background paper and coloured it with Real Red in different places but quite randomly. She has then taken a little topper with the pretty little bird on and punched out a circle so that the sentiment is central, backing this with a Mat of the Real red card to make it pop!
I will leave a link below to Danni's blog where you can see this 'Valentines' card in detail and also a day later the other card I have shared :
Thank you Danielle for allowing me to share your cards with everyone, Danni does card giveaways on her YouTube channel too so follow the link from her blog, all you have to do is comment on the post or video, Danielle's cards are always stunning and would be a lovely prize! XXX
Sue came over yesterday, which was a lovely treat, we decided that we get some of the pieces of my craft unit out to see if we could find instructions, we were soon knee deep in cardboard packaging and polystyrene sheets, Sue meticulously counted all the nuts, bolts, gizzits and gizmo's, (I've never seen so many odds and ends), brackets and hinges, you name it we had a bag of them!
Once we found the instructions we were flying along, until we had a piece that didn't look the same as the diagram and certainly had different fixings, well we twisted it, turned it, it just wasn't looking right, so I decided to call them, this piece of furniture was a LOT of money so I expected it to be properly packed. After 10 minutes he lovely girl at the office called me back and said she had spoken to the chap that builds them for customers for the princely sum of £150 ! and he explained that they have changed the part so the one we have (that looks different) us in fact right, but we only need to use short bolts (not the long ones the instructions tell you use) oh and you don't put it together as it tells you in the instructions either, she then reeled off the right way to do it!! Once we had the right instructions we were flying along, it was only when Sue's alarm went off that we realised it was 6 o'Clock but to be honest that's not unusual for Sue and I ! We managed to get the main carcass of the unit together (apart from the top) we were a little vertically Challenged for that though.
I was a little sad that we weren't going to finish it together, to be honest though I'm not sure Paul will have time to help in the next few days so it may well be still waiting next week, although I don't really have the patience to wait that long!
Thank you so much Sue (and your very organised tool box)! It is always so much fun tackling any project with you! I hope your hands aren't too sore today xxxxx
Another Uni trip today, this time it's to Staffordshire university, for Sophie again, this is one of her first choices so I hope it's all she wants it to be.
She had good news yesterday, Leicester University offered her a place on their Animation Course, which she is excited about, it's a nice confidence boost too after having interviews on Saturday.
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs
