Good Friday Morning Ladies,
How has your week been? Ours has whizzed by as usual, Paul has been going into the office every day lately and has been gradually working later and later, you can visibly see how tired he is, I am glad that this 'Plan B' has been bought in, mostly because it will encourage more people to wear masks 😷, mostly though it means that Paul can 'legitimately ' Work from home, apart from the fact that he gets more work done here anyway, because he works undisturbed and our Internet combined with his new work laptop are so much faster than his set up at work!
Other than those 2 things Plan B will make mo difference to our lives, I think it will affect those that aren't vaccinated and don't have a vaccination passport or those that just blatantly don't respect how their actions effect other people! (Rant over)😉
Today's card couldn't be any further than the 'Clean & Simple ' style of some of my recent cards, it certainly took a lot longer to make, but I absolutely loved 😍 making it!! This style of card, like some of the Tracy Evans cards are a bit more involved, a real labour of love. Every die I used to make this card *apart from Sue Wilson Holly * is from Anna Marie Designs, including the papers. I basically sat and spent about two hours die cutting, Poinsettias, foliage, circular sentiment, the Reindeer, I then added a Clear medium to the Poinsettias and covered them with crushed ice and set them on the Aga to try along with some of the white foliage and fronds that I spritzed with Pearlywinks Pearl spray so that they sparkled in the light. I then took different pieces of the paper pad and distressed the edges and tore some into strips and started building the card using one of Anna Maries cards as inspiration, I loved the effect of the pinecone in the centre of the Poinsettia, different yet fun finishing touch. I did add some paste to the distressed edges and added some crushed ice there too, just for texture and spatkle. I know its different but I hope you like it 😘
Love and HUGE hugs to you My very dear friends,
