Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and have been enjoying the fairer weather, I managed to get two loads of washing done and dried which is a bonus, although it's getting frustrating looking out at the lawn as the grass has gotten so long, Paul tried to mow it last week but apparently as fast as he put petrol in it leaked out, so I have ordered a new part, in the mean time, the bees are enjoying the clover that has taken over the lawn!
Yesterday I got to spend the afternoon with Lucy, we went shopping and bought and ice cream and enjoyed the sunshine, we were surprised at how many people still didn't wear masks, like they are only effective after friday when they become compulsory! We have worn them since we received them because despite making it harder to breathe I would prefer to take every possible precaution to stay safe and keep others safe, rant over, Soap Box returned to its cupboard.
Now on today's card, I know it's completely different to anything I have made recently but quite like the style of the cards in the 'Die Cut Book' that I bought in The Works' for £3, there are enough die cuts to make around 12 to 14 cards, which isn't bad for the money.
I took the basic pieces for the card from the sheet and after using a sanding block to remove the 'pips' that hold the pieces into the sheet, I then inked around the edges of all of the pieces I built the 'decoupaged' areas up and then placed the card front onto a mat of black card (to pick out the black in the card front) and then onto a piece of 'Crumb cake' lastly I used a piece of Petal Pink to pick up the peach tones in the card, I used this as the base card.
I added some sparkle by way of a glitter pen, which gave a lovely highlight to the berries on the card, I traced the letters with the pen too, although it doesn't really show up on the camera.
I was pleasantly surprised about the quality of the paper in this book and I'm looking forward to making the rest of the cards up.
I am waiting for an appointment with the GP today as my anxiety is really getting the better of me and I am in a fair amount of discomfort, they were supposed to get back to me yesterday but didn't, so hopefully I will hear from them this morning.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you, especially our Margaret and Lynda,
