Good Morning Ladies,
How are we all this chilly Thursday morning? We had a bright sunny day yesterday, it was chilly though, I saw a forecast that mentioned snow by the weekend, if we do get any I hope its only light as we are driving down to Devon for the weekend to visit Paul's parents, Paul's Dad has not had the best treatment in his Nursing home, he hasn't had an air mattress so has developed pressure sores, Paul's Mum has insisted on a meeting with his Consultant to lay out exactly what care he needs, on Sunday for tea he was given a bowl of Mashed Potato, nothing with it or on it, just dry mashed potato, which he quite rightly complained about, they said that he was down as only having 'soft diet' and that's all they had that was 'soft', he listed all the other things he had eaten in the few weeks he's been in there that wasn't 'soft'. Hopefully the zoom meeting with Consultant will sort everything out. So frustrating for everyone.
Today's card is a 'Throwback' card that is definitely a 'Clean & Simple ' card. Here is a description of how it was made......
Today's card is quite a simple design, I die cut a large snowflake ❄ out of a 5 inch square piece of card, I then die cut the same snowflake in Mint Macaron glitter card. The next step was to cut my mats and layers, I used Mint Macaron as the first layer cut to 5 1/4 X 5 1/4, then my card base was 5 1/2 X 5 1/2. I adhered the layers together and then sat and started the painstakingly long task of placing all of the tiny little elements of the glittered snowflake pieces back into the little apertures. I did consider just adding a piece of the glitter card behind the front piece but I don't think it would have looked as 'finished'. To finish he look of the Snowflake I added a clear diamante to the centre of the Snowflake. The sentiment I have used is from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, I think it worked quite well with the sparkly Snowflake.
I hope that you all have a lovely day, I have my Booster jab today, fingers crossed I don't get any side effects as we are going away on Saturday.
Sending love and huge hugs to all of you,
