Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, those of you that have been under the weather I hope that you are on the mend.
Janet it sounds like you are properly settled in at Marigny, your undisturbed crafting afternoon sounded perfect. It looks like the location of your house means you have nothing to listen to but the sounds of nature, no traffic noise etc. So relaxing, just what the two of you need after all of the decorating you have been doing and J's hospital duties. Enjoy every moment my lovely friend xxx
Now onto today's lovely cards.....
The first card is from Cheryl, its a stunning Art Deco card, the lady is a vision of elegance in her beautiful green dress, Cheryl has matched the colour of backing papers with the dress, so much attention to detail, down to the Art Deco Font Peel offs that Cheryl has used to personalise my card.
Art Deco cards have remained so popular in card shops, it's one of the few trends that hasn't changed over the years, it's easy to see why when you receive stunning cards like this.
Thank you so much Cheryl for such a beautiful Birthday card. xxx
The second card today was made by the lovely Lorraine, she set herself a challenge at the beginning of the year to send out as many Birthday cards as possible, she asked if she could send me a card and of course I agreed, I felt honoured. When I opened the card I had a huge smile on my face, what a fantastic card, the whole thing is shimmery, everything you would expect from a Mermaid !!
Lorraine has used beautiful shades of blue for the under water scene, the Mermaid is so beautiful, coloured perfectly too, her hair really looks as though it has movement. The stamp set that Lorraine has used is Stampin Up! 'Magical Mermaid' and includes the seaweed etc.
Lorraine I absolutely love my Birthday card, thank you so much my lovely xxx
Paul and I went to the Cinema on Monday Evening, it was a last minute decision ad we were going to go tonight but the showing we were going to was really busy and I am obviously restricted to certain seats, there were only 5 people booked into the 21.20 showing on Monday evening so we went for it.
The film we went to see was ''A Star Is Born'' which originally starred Barbara Streisand and Kris Kristopherson. The new version stars Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, well, all it was the most amazing film, I was so drawn in from the first moment that I didn't eat one of my sweets!!! I loved every single moment, I bawled through most of the second half, it started as silent tears, trying my hardest to not let anyone know I was such a softie, there was no holding it back though, I was all but sobbing as the film came to an end. I was sceptical about Lady Gaga's acting but I shouldn't have been, she was incredible, her voice, well when she belted out the first 'big note' I hade shivers, that's how good it was.
I will tell you all about Tuesday's 'fun' in tomorrow's blog !!
Sending huge warm hugs
