Good Morning my lovely friends,
How are you all ? It was a much better temperature yesterday, we didn't see the sun all day, we had rain in the afternoon, I actually went and stood out in the rain, it was quite refreshing.
It was so upsetting seeing those devastating fires around London & Essex yesterday, it's so frightening to watch it spread so quickly too, It just must be the most devastating thing, I know that material things can be replaced but there are always things that are sentimental, our wedding, early family photos etc aren't digital, there is no record of them online so they would be gone forever, I mean if someone knocked your door and said 'you need to leave straight away, what would you grab, ours would be Milo & Bella to start with (obviously) but other than that I would be panicking too much to think straight.
Actually this has made me think about getting our wedding and family photos scanned in to computer and saved for safety. We do have a document box that has Important certificates etc in, although I'm not sure its fireproof, something else to sort out. My heart goes out to all of those poor families that have lost everything .
Today's card was made yesterday using the Happiness Abounds stamp and die set, I used Highland Heather ink to give a wash across the card front, I then stamped the flowers in Versamark ink onto vellum, I added Detail White Embossing powder and heat set, I did same for leaves and then added some colour to the reverse of the flowers (for a more subtle look) then die cut them. I arranged them over the bottom half of the card over the coloured area. Finally I stamped the sentiment under the flowers and added some glitter gems for a bit of Sparkle.
I hope that you all have a good Thursday,
Love and hugs to all of you,
