Good Morning Ladies,
Ooh I'm more than a little excited today as I get to see Pat and Sue on the same day, the three Graces are back together!!!
Today's card is a little more subtle than yesterday's card, I have been itching to play with this new stamp set for almost a week but just haven't had time. It's called 'Vertical Greetings' I bought it purely for the greetings as you don't often see the printed vertically but the trees that are in the set are fab too !!
I covered my base card with 'Tranquil Tide' designer paper, I then embossed a piece of white card with the 'Garden Trellis' Embossing Folder, then added the Ribbon Punched Border to the edge of my embossed piece, I Placed this on top of the base layer, I stamped the triple tree stamp with 'Tranquil Tide' ink and matted it into a piece of card the same colour, I then did the same with the sentiment.
I die cut a little flower to top my bow and added a 'Tranquil Tide' tassel for a little movement. I added tiny diamante to the centre of each tree to finish.
I hope you like today's card.
Brenda, I hope you enjoy your Holiday home for the next few days, you won't know what to do with yourself when they leave for their holiday. I will be putting in one last order before I go away, I need the punch for the Pansy stamp I bought and I am very close to acheiving the next level of promotion, I am so excited !!
Janet the weather doesn't look like it's going to improve anytime soon, it's so frustrating, I swear I read that this summer was going to be the hottest on record with wall to wall sunshine!!
But I think I read that every year, I'm sure it's the tourist board that writes these weather forecasts! Haha, I did say to Paul on Saturday while it was absolutely bucketing down "you have to feel sorry for anyone pitching a tent in this rain' it would be a miserable start to your holiday. We have done it so I know exactly how miserable it is, it also ends up being so expensive, we had 4 children to entertain and they didn't want to sit in a tent all day, so we ended up going to various tourist attractions, it cost us more in one week to entertain our children than it does to pitch our tent on the site in the beach in Spain for 3 weeks! I love our country, we have tried 4 times to holiday in Cornwall and Devon and every time it was a wash out! It it something I look forward to doing with Paul when it's just the two of us to please.
Tracy did you find your shoes and did Janice get her dress??? I look forward a photo of you in all your finery!!
You have my sympathy, heels and my legs don't mix, nothing more uncomfortable, intact I think we are in good company there aren't many of our blog family that totter around in heels.
I hope you have a lovely time XXX
Michele I was so pleased to read that your Dad has got his companion back, I bet he was pleased to see him, I know Mum's dog really keeps her going, she moans about him the whole time but I think she'd miss him if her wasn't there. XXX
Well I'm off back the the craft room, so many cards to make to cover the posts while I'm away, I wish I could churn out 10 a day, sadly I'm usually a one card a day kind of girl, two hours choosing what to use, another two on a layout and then one to make it up, add in to that the three hours you loose in Pinterest, before you know it craft day is over!!
Love and hugs to all of you,
