Pretty Aperture card
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, I can hardly believe it's almost the weekend again, this week has whizzed by so fast.
It will be so nice not having to spend the weekend cleaning the bungalow. We can have a nice restful weekend, I hadn't realised the date, luckily Margaret reminded me that we have tickets to a Craft Demo Day at Bracknell in Saturday, Pat found the event after Farnborough was cancelled, I'm not sure what there will be there, hopefully some of the popular stands. I don't really enjoy doing 'Make & Takes', I prefer crafting at my own pace, so I'm not to fussed about taking part in those, we will find out when we get there I guess! I'm sure we'll have fun whatever it is.
Today's stunning Aperture card has been designed and created by our Lovely Janet, she has embossed the front of the card with the Sue Wilson 'Beaded Swirls' embossing folder, before it was embossed Janet die cut an oval aperture out of the card front, then another slightly larger oval was cut in lilac card to frame the aperture. Janet has then stamped that lovely sentiment on another piece of lilac card and centred it in the oval aperture.
A string of tiny pearls add a pretty finishing touch to the oval.
Janet has then created a gorgeous floral spray to add embellishment to the card, picking colours that match perfectly with the accent colours. I love the addition of the beaded hat pins in the floral spray the give a real touch of luxury to the card as do the die cut swirls behind the flowers, they help draw your eye into that sentiment.
A truly stunning card Janet, thank you so much for allowing me to share it with everyone. XXX
Pat is coming over today, I'm not sure what we are going to do, there is the local village coffee morning on a Thursday, it opens to coincide with the opening time if the local post office (once a week on a Thursday morning). I think it finishes at 11am though. Which would be a little bit of a rush. I would like to go to one though to meet the local people. It will be nice to see Pat though whatever we decide to do.
I hope that you all have a lovely day too,
Love and hugs,
