Good Friday Morning Lovely Ladies,
Pat sent me some of her 'Groovi' cards to share with you while I am on holiday, I have to be honest, I just couldn't wait to share them, so I thought I would give you a little sneak peek today.
I particularly love the beautiful, bright cheerful colours that Pat has used on this card, the Distress Oxide background virtually glows through the parchment, it looks amazing. at first glance it looks as though the blue around the outside is ribbon, but oh no, that is a border that Pat has coloured Blue and pricked a pattern into, and the little brads match perfectly. You really have found your 'niche' Pat and it shows, your cards are now 'works of art' gone are the days of getting the lettering back to front.
It's so nice to see you enjoying creating your pieces each week, there are so many different styles too.
The pieces have really come to life since you have bought your Derwent Coloursoft Pencils, they work so well, the colours are so vibrant even through the parchment. I knew they were good pencils as Sophie has pretty much worn most of mine down by half on her Exam pieces, she loved how well they blended together so smooth and seamlessly. I have noticed that you really relax, something that you really need right now, just a little bit of an escape.
I can't wait to share more of your work Pat, there are some stunning pieces to come.
Thank you so much for allowing me to share your work. xxx
Sue came over super early (well for me and Sue it was early) to take me to the local Post Office Coffee Morning, I was going to pull out but these things don't get easier the longer you put them off.
We arrived and I posted a parcel and then we went in for a cuppa, but although it was more than 45 minutes before they finished they were making moves to pack up, we had a cup of tea and sat down regardless, I took a big selection of my cards and gave them to Sue to ''look through'' but nobody was really interested. I think we are still at the stage of awkward looks, we are still strangers in the grand scheme of things, ''Cribbage & Canape Jan'' was there and very much likes the sound of her own voice and it's quite a loud one, we were polite, tried to join in the conversation, after about five minutes they started packing up around us, in fact another couple came in and asked for a coffee only to be told that they were too late, the chap said ''but its only 10 past 11'' but nobody paid any attention. It's a shame as it could be quite a nice meeting place. Not sure how I feel about it to be honest, do I persevere and hope to make my mark or just not bother. I certainly wouldn't be able to go on my own, I was having a panicking before we left and my heart was beating a fair rhythm while we were there.
Thank you so much Sue, for turning out so early to help me out, what do you think that we should do? (I value your opinion) xx
We have a weekend of organising and sorting things for our holiday, I can hardly believe its, next weekend, this year has gone so fast,
I am grateful of the cooler weather, there is no way I could have physically managed that trip out yesterday, in the recent temperatures.
Sending love and hugs to all of you,
Please could you have a poke about in your craft room for anything for Mixed Craft Saturday, I love this feature of the blog but I think we might have to start something new, any suggestions would be welcomed.
