Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Yesterday was such a glorious day, so sunny and really warm, but boy didn't that temperature drop in the evening, I was shivering and even had to resort to a hot water bottle, maybe I should have had that Baileys to warm me up!
Todays card was made using the Santorini Die, from Sue Wilsons Greek island dies, now I searched high and low and could hardly find any cards made using these dies, I don't think that Sue has used them too much as I could find hardly any on her blog either, in face there are a few of the last die collection that I haven't seen too much of. Do you think this next launch will have Christmas s in, or will there be another launch in june/july ? I didn't read that there were any Christmas dies, I am
I used the Noble Classic Adorned Rectangles in Lilac and the Greek Island Santorini Die both from Creative Expressions, designed by Sue Wilson.
I stamped the Justrite Happy Birthday Sentiment onto the centre of the Santorini die, added some pearls and a bow tied with Lilac satin ribbon, topped with a resin flower that I got for a bargain price at the works, sadly they only had the lilac/purple ones, they have great 3metre crochet ribbon and other lace ribbon in some really lovely colours, some of wooden reels, all at £1 each!
I still need to add some flowers maybe in the bottom right corner, but I am not sure, what do you think?
Well much excitement, my Fiskars Stamp Press came yesterday, it wasn't due to be here until Monday! So I will be have a restful day doing a bit of crafting I think, I ordered some new Smoothies, they are little egg shaped latex sponges, they are like the best stress toy, I must have sat squishing it in my hand for ages, I watched Julia Watts demo them on Create and Craft and they look so easy to use as the have no edges so blend really smoothly, well we will see, I will update you later on today!
Well we are having a lazy morning, which is just as well after yesterdays allotment afternoon, it really frustrates me that I can do hardly nothing and still pay the price heavily, this time for sowing a few seeds, I wasn't hoeing and digging! I really did enjoy it though, I love spending time with Paul doing something that he really enjoys, he is so willing to do anything for me!
I hope you are all enjoying your Sunday morning........is that Bacon I smell?!
