Good Morning Ladies,
Well as I am writing today's post I still haven't heard from GP, so I will have to update you later, annoyingly I won't be getting any antibiotics tonight if I need them!
It was another chilly day here yesterday, temperature didn't get into the + numbers! It looked like there was a white layer on the ice too so not sure if we had a tiny dusting of snow, it was -5 when I went to loo at 4am! As it got later in afternoon it became very foggy, so maybe that will make a difference to temperature. I tell you one thing this house is an absolute nightmare to keep warm!
Today's card was inspired by a card on Pinterest, the name was Lollipop crafts. I loved the colours as soon as I saw it and had the papers but like a lot of things I hadn't used them yet. I must admit I don't generally go for browns, although I adore Kraft card, hessian , twine etc. My base card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2, I then added a Brown mat and then added two pieces of Abigail Rose Dsp to the brown mat, adding a piece of 1 inch hessian and topped that with a piece of Crocheted Lace, instead of stamping a sentiment on a piece of card, I used a piece of that wide hessian and placed it in my stamp tool, as I knew it was going to need more than one inking, as the ink would be absorbed by the ribbon. I ended up inking about 4 times to get even coverage. I like how it looks though. I didn't have any brown gems so I got creative with some cream ones, I pushed them into the brown ink pad and then added clear embossing powder and heat set, trapping the colour that would otherwise wipe off under the embossing!
I hope that you all have a fun Thursday,
Love and hugs to all,
