Good Morning Ladies,
Today's amazing cards have all been designed by Pat, all three are absolutely stunning, so much work going into each design. My favourite is definitely the first one, although I love the Boat scene very much too, especially having the extra detail of the compass, so much intricate detail to.
I think it's a combination of the pretty, delicate frame around the lily in the first card and the lovely colour and shading that you have achieved on the petals, the ribbon matches perfectly and I love that Linen look card that you have used.
Thank you so much for sharing your cards with us Pat, I can't wait to see the ones you were making today made up into finished cards. XXX
I'm afraid I sat all afternoon at my craft desk and acheived nothing, I just couldn't get motivated, my son was in a particularly bad mood as he was desperate to find a car and anything I suggested was wrong, I think that the stress he was causing just clouded my head, I had a stinking headache too, that was probably down to the fact that Matt's dog was restless all night (maybe because he'd eaten the frozen chicken I had defrosting on a plate on the draining board)!, He disturbed Milo (cat), who decided that as he was up he might as well have his breakfast, now I wouldn't usually give in to his demands but I didn't want him to wake Paul who has to be up at 5:45am. So at 4:10am, I was sharing a sachet of Salmon &Trout terrine between the two cats!! I went bathroom, had a glass of water and slipped back into bed as quietly as I could manage! I try to not make the involuntary ''ooh's and aah's" that seem to be coming more frequent as I get older, mixed with the cracking and clunking joints I sound like a one man band!!! It doesn't seem to disturb Paul, thankfully. Once in bed I played a quick round of solitaire, while my pain meds took effect and by about 5:20 am I am just about nodding off. I was woken woken abruptly at 6:20 am by Sophie who needed me to get up NOW and Dutch Braid her hair as she couldn't possibly leave the house without! So I was up again, with all the hustle and bustle of them all getting ready to leave the house there was no chance of getting back to sleep!
Fingers crossed for a quieter Thursday !!
I hope you all had a better day than I did, although I will add it was nice to have Pat here to distract me! X
Love and hugs
