A collection of Anne's Fantastic cards
Good Morning Ladies,
I am excited to share with you today a selection of Anne's fantastic cards, I don't think that these amazing hand made cards will be on your local Garden Centre's shelves for very long Anne, you have some fantastic 'male' cards Anne. What man wouldn't love the 'man shed' card, although we will never truly know what their fascination is! The Gnome card too, curious things aren't they? I find them a little bit scary ;o !
The card with the beautfiul Ivy die cut would be perfect for the 'Lady Gardener' those wellies are very posh, I love the Kingfishers too, the sentiment on the Plant Label is an inspired touch Anne.
The Cute frogs could be a birthday for a best friend card, an anniversary card, or even a 'thanks for being there' card, leaving it blank covers all of those events, genius! Thank you so very much for sending me your cards to share with everyone Anne xxx
Lynda, I do hope your hospital appointment went ok yesterday, You really have been through the mill lately. My daughter Becca has to take Methotrexate, along with Folic acid, the only negative is that it quite commonly cause nausea, which Becca suffered with and in now on Methotrexate administrated via an 'Epi-pen' style injection, which hopefully will work better for her. Matt had it too for a few years but has had to move on to a different drug for past couple of years, I can tell you that both of them saw a quick change after starting the methotrexate and apart from not being able to drink much alcohol both of them were able to live a pretty normal life thanks to the drug! I am sure you will have the same results, sending huge hugs your way my lovely xxx
Maria you could use pearls to create the curve across your card or just do some 'inked hills' like Barbara Grey, or the 'inkyliscious lady' to create a scene on the card, just a torn paper border would work too, you know me, anything goes!! xxx
Brenda, Paul got some new tyres for the car today (ouch) and sorted a few other bits and pieces, we do take a few basics with us on holiday, tea bags, coffee, etc, we have a electric cool box so we can take meat etc too, more importantly this year with the £/euro being so much less than last year.
we cook most days to be honest and go out for treat days maybe 5/6 days our of the 3 weeks we are away, but the seafood is so fresh and affordable where we stay paella with loads of seafood is a homemade treat that we all love! Our main rule on holiday is no timetables, we eat when we are hungry, so no rushing back to cook tea or to get ready for a particular time, which makes it a super relaxed holiday especially for Paul. xxx
Pat, you will probably be a little bit sore today as it sounded like you did an awful lot yesterday, I hope you don't suffer too much my lovely. I hope you got all your holiday bits sorted.
Feet up today, no arguments, (my turn to be mummy) xxx
Sonia, I have seen Anna Marie's new paper pads and I love, love, love them, although they do seem a little bit expensive at first glance, I'll race you!!! xxx
Lorraine my email is: firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to seeing your cards, I hope today is a good day for you xxx
Karen, you are so right, I absolutely love the new die set, I couldn't wait to use them, funny think is that they aren't new out, they are quite old i think, but I did what we all do, saw a card made with them on Pinterest and that was it, I can see me reaching for them quite alot, so apologies in advance!
Enjoy your few days off together, I wonder how many things you will find that you had forgotten about?? xxx
Janet, omg Christina's house sounds divine, a real home, warm and welcoming! I cannot wait to see 'Hearn the Hunter', if the Winter Goddess and 'Mr Peacock' are anything to go by! A very gifted Crafter just like her Mummy xxx
Val, I hope you got to the bottom of that Ironing Pile whilst watching the Olympics, what's your favourite sport to watch??
Lilian, I hope your day working was the rest that you required after being busy in the garden over the weekend. Maybe today you will get to relax properly in your craft room xxx
Anne, like you I absolutely love the organising part of the holiday preparations, I am a 'list maker' and therefore have so many lists on the go at the moment, I need a list to organise my lists!!
The unpacking is so much of an anti climax isn't it, your holiday that you have been looking forward to all year is over and you have about 10 loads of washing to get washed, dried and put away! Although I have promised to cut down the amount of clothes I pack this year, as I get reminded every year ''i bring most of it back untouched''! (I like to pack for every eventuality)!
Becaused we are camping we have to try and remember everything from tin openers to clothes pegs, jugs bowls and tin foil, my lists go on and on and on..... hahaha, looking forward to seeing your latest cards xxx
Sue, Well.......did you get it done?? your challenge card? I am just pulling your leg, when I look back at the challenges you have had a card featured in most of them! By the way I do have a list that says
''Wednesday .....Sue '' so you are in my schedule, I hope you can make it xxx
Michele, I hope your day wasn't as hectic as you were anticipating, I hope it didn't take too long to bring your boss up to date and get things sorted for your move etc, you have had a lot of upheaval at work this year with one thing and another, does that mean you will be bored when things go back to normal after you get sorted and moved back in?! Did your ideas stay in your mind long enough for your to get back into your craft room...? I do hope so xxx
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and huge huggles to all,
