Lorraine's Challenge Card
Good Morning Ladies,
Lorraine was a little too late for me to get her card posted in time for the Sunday showcase of all of your cards, so as I always promise to share any cards that you have gone to the trouble of making, here is Lorraine's beautiful Sketch challenge card.
Lorraine has used the Delightful Daisy Dsp for her background, she has then added a pretty scalloped border, the part that really catches your eye is the beautiful daisy, Lorraine has stamped the Daisy twice with the Daisy Delight Stamp set and the punched them with the matching Daisy Punch and off set them on top of each other to give a fuller looking flower. Lorraine's finishing touches are those pretty buttons placed along the border and the 'Best Wishes' peel Off.
The best thing about Stampin'Up! Products is that everything is made to coordinate, their decorative papers, stamps, ink, cardstock, ribbon and embellishments, all work perfectly together.
Thank you so much Lorraine for taking part in this week's challenge, I was so pleased to hear the good news about your Chemo, I will leave it for you to share with the Ladies...XXX
I think the next few days will be spent waiting for those last minute things to arrive, we have had to replace a couple of things that seem to have got lost in the move, like the bag of holiday shoes, well basically about 15 pairs of flipflops! I am sure that they got put into a bigger box and will turn up eventually, so for now its easier to buy a few more pairs, it's nice to have some new ones anyway.
Yesterday I was waiting for Paul's birthday present, that turned up late afternoon, the box was really battered though so I hope everything is still inside. He chose a Rotating Composter, of all things, apparently it makes Composting faster, this thing looks huge though, I am sure it will work fine, Paul is really tricky to buy for as he never 'wants' anything, it's unusual for us to be home for his birthday so I think that everyone is looking forward to having a nice meal out together.
I will leave you with a laugh though, after Paul left yesterday morning he left our Bedroom window open for the cats to go out, I nodded back off to sleep for about 20 mins, then I got up and went to the bathroom just as Matt came down, Matt commented on how excited Milo seemed with his new (still empty) automatic feeder, I came out of the bathroom to see a little tail stuck out the side of the feeder, at which point I screamed for Matt, who spent the next hour moving every piece of furniture in the hall trying to catch this very fast, mouse, every time he got it cornered the bloody thing escaped,
which he thought was amusing, I was sat on my bed, eyes closed, humming a song to distract myself.
It seemed to take forever but he eventually caught it in his hands and took it out to the garden.
The most disturbing part for me is that Milo walked over my legs, across the bed to bring it in, it just doesn't bare thinking about!
Have a lovely day,
Love and Hugs
