Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all enjoyed Michele's first challenge yesterday, I can't wait to see your cards, even though Michele has set the challenge you still sent your cards to me the same as usual.
Harry Potter was absolutely amazing, we all enjoyed it, we were there from 6.20pm to almost 10pm.
All of the sets and props were actually from the films, which I was surprised about, it made the experience all the more special. They had actual costumes, behind the scenes secrets which explained how they did some of the special effects like playing Quidditch etc, you could ride a broomstick, be filmed acting a scene on the Hogwarts Express, learn how to use a wand, you name it.
Goodness me the Gift shop was expensive though, a single chocolate frog was £8.99, Paul and the girls had a 'Butterbeer' which is Cream Soda with Butterscotch, I tried a bit and it was Sickly sweet, but they all like it.
Today's card was made using a piece of one of the Graceful Glass Vellum Papers, I say 'a piece because I cut the panel into 4 separate images, the rest will follow soon.
This Vellum was coloured with Melon Mambo Watercolour Pencils and Granny Apple Green watercolour pencil which I blended together with a SU Blender pen.
I mounted this little strip of vellum onto a piece of white card to make the colours pop. I embossed the background with the 'Tufted' Embossing Folder and popped that onto a mat of white card and attached some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon 'Ombre' ribbon, I stamped the sentiment from 'Stitched All Round' stamp set and die cut it with the matching die set and mounted onto a mat of white card and popped on top of my ribbon.
I coloured a resin rose with a matching pink 'Stampin'Blend' pen and popped it into the centre of my bow.
What do you think?
We were lucky enough to meet up with Our Lynda and Terry on Sunday evening, we had tea together in the Diner beside our hotel, we had good old fashioned cooked food, beautifully cooked too.
There was lots of laughter, Lynda and Terry are the loveliest couple, great sense of humour too, there wasn't a quiet moment the whole time we were together.
The meetings are over way too fast though, I could of stayed and chatted all night, both Paul and I were exhausted from a very busy day though.
Thank you so much Lynda for travelling to meet up with us. xxx
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs
