Christmas in July, using Pop Of Petals stamp and Punch
Good Morning Ladies,
As promised I have made my Christmas version of this weeks challenge card, apart from the Christmas label all of the elements are 'non' Christmas. The embossing folder I used is called 'Petal Burst', the stamp set I used to stamp the background and the flowers is called 'Pop Of Petals', I stamped the flowers in versamark on Poppy Parade card and added clear embossing powder, I then punched them out with the matching punch, I did the same on 'Shaded Spruce' card and put them together to look like Poinsettia's. I added my red topper at an angle to follow the sketch, I stamped the tag with 'Labels to love' Stamp set. I added some narrow gold ribbon around the top of the topper and a stamped and die cut small flower to embellish the bow. To finish the card I added a few gold sequins. Finally I mounted it onto a white card base.
What do you think??.
Pat came over yesterday and YES she bought delicious Cream cakes, it won't sound as exotic as Janet's delightful desserts but I will describe as best I can, it was an eclair filled with fresh cream and some fresh raspberries, on top was Raspberry flavoured icing with pieces of freeze dried raspberry sprinkled over. It was yummy, such a treat !! Thank you Pat xx
After lunch we went into the craft room, Pat got straight down to creating another beautiful 'Groovi' masterpiece, the piece that she made had the most delicate pattern, I can't wait to see it finished.
I started by tidying my craft space, I then sat and made today's card.
Lilian I would be training Roger in the ironing department, I was lucky as Paul was taught how to iron when he did his training, my only frustration is that he is so meticulous it takes him forever!
I am with you as far as bedding goes though Lilian, I am like the 'Princess and the Pea' when I get in bed, I just can't sleep on wrinkled sheets, I have an 'OCD' habit, every night before I get into bed I have to pull the top sheet and duvet right back and smooth the bed down, pulling the bottom sheet tight and making sure there are no 'bits' of any kind in the bed. I also have to have a top sheet, I hate the feel of just having the duvet on me, a little strange I know, but I think it might come from childhood as we always had a top sheet, probably because we had blankets and a bed spread rather that a Duvet.
I hope you all have a lovely day ladies,
Love and Hugs
