Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well, I hardly seems possible that a week as passed since I was preparing to go to Birmingham, I'm in two minds as to whether I'd go again to be honest, I enjoyed it, although pain did overshadow the fun at times, it's the days that it takes to recover to a bearable level of pain that is frustrating, the other huge thing for me is being reliant on others, I couldn't go and get my own lunch and drinks myself so always had to ask for help, don't get me wrong Danielle was hugely supportive, fetching my food and craft packs etc, but I felt conscious that I was affecting her weekend. The hotel had thick carpets everywhere which made it impossible to propel myself in my wheelchair. Anyway it's over now and it was worth it if only to have met Amanda and made a lovely new friend too, so every cloud does have a silver lining!
Tracy has shared the two A4 cards that she was asked to make by a friend, one from a Grandmother and one from an Aunt for a 40th Birthday. Tracy you have done an amazing job, creating two absolutely stunning cards, the first card is super 'girly' with those 'Cheery Lynn' Flourishes and the gorgeous flowers. The second card has a totally different feel, I absolutely love that script background you have used, the lace really softens the feel of the card and ties in beautifully with the Heart lace doily you have used. Every element has been carefully thought out and placed perfectly.
I know you said that you were out of your comfort zone with these large cards Tracy but my goodness you did an amazing job, they are both stunning, I feel that you will be getting many more orders for these cards.
Thank you so very much for sharing them today XXX
