My Beautiful Card in its box
And out of the box
Good Morning Ladies,
We are set for quite a warm day today, maybe 29°, well down here anyway, warm, sticky nights too, which I'm not too keen on, I like a cool bedroom , both at night and even more so in the morning, I can't stand waking up with the heating cranked up, it makes it so stuffy! Anybody else feel the same? I have to have a window open all the time too. Maybe it goes back to when I lived at home, we never had heating upstairs at all then, you didn't hang about after getting out of the bath! I don't ever remember being too cold to sleep though, we didn't have double glazed windows either, they got frosty inside and out ! Hahaha
Now speaking of windows.....just look at this amazing gift that I received from our Brenda, I have been wanting a window die for months and this card made get straight on to order one! Just look at the detail, the lace curtains at the window, tied back too, the beautiful foliage trailing around the window with those gorgeous hand sewn roses, I believe Brenda has made them using seam binding ribbon! Inspired by you yet again Brenda I went out and bought some florists tape so I can have a go at making those roses.
This is one of those cards that you can't stop looking at, what did you use to make the texture around the window Brenda? Its just delicately textured here and there so that it looks like an outside wall. So clever!
Brenda, thank you so very much for such a beautiful gift, that I will treasure xxxx
Now for those of you that use pearl string, they are selling 100ft in hobbycraft for £3 !
What a bargain, I think its 4mm pearls, they also had some of Tim Holtz 'Big' dies for £10, so I had to buy the Tattered Florals ! Worth a look ladies.
Pat, we have laid on the warm weather so that you can acclimatise gradually, safe journey home xxx
