Lastly My Favourite Green & White


Good Thursday Morning Ladies, 

How are we all doing? No wind here yesterday,  we started day with a sharp frost but that was soon melted away with some warm sunshine!  Do you ever have those 'hmmm' days, not a bad day as such but not a good day either, if you know what I mean, my poor sleep pattern doesn't help, Paul is always sound as asleep within 5 minutes of closing his eyes,  I think I must have tried everything to get to sleep over the last 5 years and nothing seems to work.  I found myself almost daydreaming half the day, I had laptop on in my craft room, very quietly as Paul had 3 meetings on zoom!  They have said today that it could take up to 2 or 3 months to get his building safe enough to use, so they are organising parties of people to go in and collect necessary paperwork etc.  Luckiky a lot of them can work from home.

Today's card is a very simple design using my shades of my favourite colour and a beautiful stamp set called Calming Camellia. These photo real stamps give such a detailed image, I stamped the image onto 'Soft Succulent' card using Evening Evergreen Ink, I stamped randomly around 4 inch × 8 inch piece of card, I mounted that onto a mat of Evening Evergreen card and then onto a white DL card base. I wanted to keep the design of the card simple as the stamp is quite detailed.  I added a piece of frayed Evening Evergreen ribbon across the card ans stamped a simple sentiment onto white card and die cut with a label die and matted it onto Evening Evergreen label die cut for continuity.   

Hoping to see Sue today, looking forward to a catch up.

I hope that you all have a lovely day 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Everyone
    What a gorgeous card SANDRA. I love your colours and the size of the card.

    Well AT LAST we have a roof.Thank goodness. The Scaffolding came down yesterday so of course everything was tested last night as it rained.
    All we have to do now is get the paths etc cleaned and sorted. That will be a week-end job as of course it's raining this morning.

    Mr Tesco is deliverying today instead of tomorrow and this afternoon my 'foot' lady is coming.
    I shall be so so pleased to see the end of this month.

    HUGS are on their way to you all.PLEASE TAKE EXTRA CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  2. Beautiful card SANDRA Classic and timeless
    Like you I really struggle to get to sleep AND stay asleep Most nights I think about the challenge for the week and think about how I’m going to do it Just gentle ideas or really concentrate on counting backwards from 500 Make sure you’ve put your blue screens away for at least 30 minutes before bedtime
    You’ve probably tried all this though
    I had a great time at CVC yesterday afternoon I spent the rest of my voucher and a bit more - ahem!
    I hope Sue makes it today
    And that you are feeling better today Brenda There’s nothilike sleeping in your own bed Take care
    Take care everyone xxx

  3. Hello All, hail showers today, and really cold.

    Sandra lovely card, I love that flower stamp, very classic looking.

    Well I have been taking my antibiotics, two one and three of another one. It’s a job fitting them all in with my other tablets, back is worse this morning, still I suppose I need to give them time to work.

    Janet, glad to hear you are water tight now, such a relief I’m sure.

    Going to do some ironing , and then some crafting hopefully. Have a good day all Lilian

  4. Hi ladies..
    Beautiful card Sandra, I love the flower you have used ,really lovely and big.
    Glad you got the roof back Janet. If the weather reports are right we will have a lot more of the wet coming.
    The temp. showing +6 but with the wind chill it's more like -1 brrrr!
    Nice being back inside after visiting the doctors and then in to town.
    Lilian, so sorry to hear that your back is so painful. Hope that you feel better soon.
    Brenda, hoping you are alright and managed to get any sleep back in your own bed.
    I did get about four hours last night, well anything is better than nothing 😊
    Have a good day as possible and maybe do some crafting today.
    Many hugs to you all, Maria xx

  5. Hi everyone
    Love your beautiful card today. The flower stamp is gorgeous 😊
    Hope Sue came today and you’ve both enjoyed catching up and crafting.
    Happy to hear the roof is fixed Janet, such a relief for you.
    Lilian, hope you’re ok and your tablets start working soon - there’s nothing worse than a bad back.
    Brenda, hope you’re ok and you had a good night back in your own bed.
