Good Morning Ladies,
First up today I would like you to join me in wishing our lovely Cheryl a very Happy Birthday. XXX
Now I don't usually like to share similar cards on consecutive days but there is a point to on this occasion.
I made the top (new) card in exactly the same way as I made yesterdays card, except that I used a couple of different stamps on today's card giving a fuller border. I also stamped randomly around the border with Versamark and added Copper Embossing Powder, just subtle touched here and there, I think it really lifts the background, adding a touch of luxury. I have shared the photo of yesterdays card as a comparison, I think just adding those little touches of copper makes the border look richer and adds more shades of pink. I also added my sentiment on a topper, the bottom layer of which I also stamped with Versamark and added copper embossing powder.
You could add embossing powder to any Decorative Background paper, just add Versamark here ad there and heat set, you will be surprised at what a difference it makes.
They new Tree stamps are good for so much more than just their trees, lots of leaves and foliage in these sets too, dies to match too which is a huge bonus.
Well I was very surprised to hear Paul scraping Ice off of the windscreen of the card yesterday morning, quite thick Ice too, I really didn't think it would be dipping that low over night, the good thing is that it justifies having the heating on in the evenings!
The first thing that gets requested in our house as it turns cooler is Apple Crumble, luckily I bought some Bramleys at the weekend so were prepared. The next request will be Paul's sticky toffee pudding, they all love that, although If I ask them to eat dates they would sneer their noses up, they love them in that though.
Everyone was back home last night so we had the roast I had planned for Sunday, but refused to cook it for just three of us.
I could do with some nice Slow Cooker Recipes ladies, so If you have any good ones please let me know.
Exciting News: The lovely Anne at 'A crafty place' has given me a discount code for you lovely ladies, for your second and subsequent orders (as you get a discount on your first order)
If you are interested please let me know and I will gladly pass it on.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
