Good Morning Ladies,
It sounds like you all had a bit of an overcast breezy day yesterday, it was less humid which was a huge relief, I hate that feeling of constantly damp clammy skin, I showered twice and still felt horrible when I went to bed. It looks like the weather is going to be the same all week so Lilian you may well be right when you said about that Summer was over! I always feel terrible for people that have paid out enormous sums for holidays in the UK, weather can make a huge difference to your holiday, I think that most tourist areas charge extortionate fees for activities that are indoors, knowing that if you are on holiday with children you will pay it to entertain them.
Well Ladies I am pleased to report that I did manage two cards yesterday, almost three, I just need to decide on a sentiment for the third one. I have found it easier to pick our a particular stamp/die set and work with just that, otherwise I end up having about six out on my desk and then ending up on pinterest and 3 hours later no further forward, so for the first day I achieved my goal !!
Today's card was made using a New Stamp set called 'Wonderful World' I kept the design simple, using Blackberry Bliss as the Colour, I decided to go for a 'Z' fold card with a simple stamped panel on the front that showcases how lovely and detailed the stamp is, I used a couple pieces of background paper in the same colour from a 6x6 pack, one piece has a diamond pattern the other a lovely script. I added a plain white panel inside to write on, cutting the same size as the largest of the two panels on the fold, to place it so that the front panel covers it perfectly when closed, add your adhesive to the back and then line the front up with the panel on the front and close the card gently, that way you know that the white panel won't show when the card is closed, I added a couple of tiny leaves to the inside panel to tie everything together. I hope you like it.
My problem with this challenge is that I have SO many 'new things' (whether they are actually new or things that I have bought off of de-stash sites) that it's hard to decide where to start. Today I literally shut my eyes and picked one, I might write some of the names on pieces of paper and draw one out a a jar and then the decision is made!
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Special hugs on the way to Our Brenda, Lynda & Terry, Gina and anyone else feeling under the weather!!
Janet, I hope that you got all of your booking done yesterday xxx
Love and hugs to all of you,
