Something a little bit different for me....
Are you all prepared for the cold snap? Paul told me the forecast they were given at work (supposedly accurate), it said that we will have rain to start, turning to sleet then snow (about 3cm), should stop at about 6pm then it will freeze overnight, so it looks like the roads will be treacherous, do please go careful ladies. I wonder how we will cope with the snow, no doubt their will be no bread or milk in shops, I wonder why it's always bread and milk?!
Val, have you got room for a few of us to come for a visit, our achy bones could do with the warmth, we could craft together while absorbing some sun, we could pop and pick Janet up on the way down, J while have to manage to keep the log burner going for a few days! Haha. I joke but there's nothing I would like more!
On that note can I ask all of you that are interested in meeting up to email me with dates that are good for you and your travel limitations, we ARE going to meet up this year, I want to make it accessible to as many of you as possible.
I will look at different hotels, I want to keep the cost as low as possible, I think a weekend would be better, but we can be flexible. If any of you have any suggestions or ideas please let me know, the more input the better. I just can't wait to meet you all xx
Now today's card is something completely different for me, I have always struggled with stamping, so to suggest that I create me own background paper would have made me laugh, with the combination of my new stamping tool and Stampin Up stamps I have become a little more confident.
I used a stamp set called 'Touches of Texture" from Stampin Up and the flower is Botanical Builder. I used Victorian Velvet and Bundled Sage Distress Ink to randomly stamp the background using a combination of 3 different stamps.
The sentiment is applicable to all of you, it is a Creative Expressions clear stamp set "Elegant Sentiments", they are such a lovely font.
The flowers are cut from Victorian Velvet card and white for centres and leaves.
I hope you like it.
Keep wrapped up warm my lovelies,
Love and hugs
