Good Morning Ladies,
I have made today's card for a Stampin Up Team Challenge on Facebook, it is from a sketch that they featured on Monday, which was one we did a few months ago
I have made 3 Challenge cards this week, one for our Sketch on Monday, one for Janet's mini Challenge and today's card for Stampin Up.
Mind you I rather enjoyed playing with the "So Succulent " stamp set and their matching dies, with a little dab of ink on their tips they look quite realistic, I think I like them because they are a bit different.
Succulent Stamps & Dies
I used the papers from the same Collection at the bottom of the card, I made a border piece with Delicate Details lace stamps, then used the dies to create the flowers to embellish the card. I had great fun making those Flowers, I sat playing last night as Paul was at work at when I looked at time it was 00.56 am, Oops, still had to photograph card for blog and write this post.
Ladies I wanted to let you know that Janet emailed me yesterday to say how seeing all of the cards for her Tutorial really made her day, so thank you, from me too! X
Lynda I do hope Margaret was ok after her fall, you must have been so worried, send her our love, I was also pleased to read that your Exercise class was a little easier yesterday, I have visions of you in a Leotard with matching leg wamers! 😉
I hope it continues to get easier and that you will really start to see the benefits of having the surgery, you'll be running round Ally Pally this time xxxx
Pat, I hope you are having a good time at Bet's although I know you won't get much rest, I bet it's chilly on the coast right now, have you ventured into Clacton yet, I have such fond memories of going to Clacton with mum, dad & Nana as a child, it saddens me to go back and see what a state it's in these days, one image really stands out, it was a laughing policeman in a glass case outside the pier, funny how particular things stay in your mind, wrap up warm if you go xxxx
Maria, it sounds as though you and Rick are having fun, looking forward to photos, ask Rick to photograph you 'in action' on the slopes ! Xxx
Brenda we will be thinking of you today as you attend another funeral, I hope the weather stays bright, I'm sure you will be exhausted, please take if easy, hugs xxx
Val, I bet you can't wait to get back to a slightly warmer climate, going from Cape Verdi back to Spain would have been ok but to return to Wales is quite an extreme change of weather! I hope you feel more like getting out and about today, sending hugs xxx
Have we got any crafty shopping to share ladies??? Come on, confess!! If so send me the photos and I will feature them.
Right that's it from me, advice write this I am trying to keep the duvet over my shoulders, it's absolutely freezing in our room tonight, I don't like being in this big old bed on my own, I usually warm my feet up on Paul, but he's working until 7.30am, Milo is snuggled up by my feet at the moment so that's creating a little warmth.
Love and Hugs to all,
