Good Morning Ladies,
I eventually managed to get a challenge card made, just a quick and simple one but a challenge card all the same.
I used papers from the 6x6 In colours paper pad, this particular colour is 'Lovely Lipstick' this card was made with just one sheet of the 6x6 paper. I cut it to size and inked the edges with Lovely Lipstick Ink. I cut a base card 4 1/8 X 11 inch and scored it at 5 1/2 inch. (this way you get two cards out of 1 sheet of A4). It's folded at the top.
I used an offcut of the Lovely Lipstick base card to make a border piece, I added a piece of Silver foil edged ribbon, topped with a piece of Lovely Lipstick Ribbon.
I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin Up! 'Stitched All Round' stamp set in 'Lovely Lipstick' ink and die cut with the matching Framelits.
This is the set I used for this card.
I used the flowers from 'Dashing Deer' Suite and die used the Deers Antlers as the flourish to place the flowers upon. To finish the card I added tiny crystal gems to the centres of each of the flowers and around the label die.
We had another small Riley Drama yesterday, not involving a cat this time though.
We were scheduled to have a landlords Inspection on Thursday this week, they are supposed to come in the first 3 months but this is our first one, although David (Sainsbury) pops round all the time.
Anyway, you know what we are like, I wanted everything perfect before they arrived, so being ill for the part of the week hasn't helped. Anyway after our night at the cinema I was exhausted Wednesday morning, I clicked on to check that the blog had gone up and noticed that the date was 17th October and it rang a bell so I went to check the letter from the letting agent, guess what.....Yes thats right it was Wednesday they were coming, not Thursday. I went into a blind panic, nobody was here but me, I had not idea what the upstairs was like as the girls were 'finishing' their rooms when that got back last night! I felt like death warmed up and so I just called Paul, I asked him to call them and ask them to reschedule. The thing that worried me was they had said in their letter that if nobody was home that they would let themselves in! (which I don't think it right). Luckily Paul contacted them in time and managed to reschedule. Phew drama over!
I am happy to report that I started to feel a lot more comfortable as the day went on. I even managed to make a card, albeit a simple one.!
I hope that you all have a lovely day, fingers crossed for a nice day weather wise.
Love and hugs to all,
