Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and have managed to use up all of your Christmas leftovers, we had the last of the turkey last night, with mashed potatoes, spiced red cabbage, sprouts and carrots, very simple but very delicious, Paul's parents quite like simple food, so really enjoyed it. I think that tomorrow will be something super simple like the twice baked jacket potatoes.
Well I managed to make a card, with very limited supplies and the tiniest craft space as my desk has been totally packed away to make room to have the dining table out, I was able to open the door slightly and reach my arm in to grab an ink pad and piece of card. The stamp and dies were out as they are new and I haven't gotten around to putting them away yet.
I took some Petal Pink card and embossed a piece using the stunning new Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder, it has such a lovely lacey design. I added a strip of the Spotted Tulle ribbon and topped that with a piece of Powder Pink Ruched edge ribbon. I stamped the 'Love You' from the 'Beauty Abounds' stamp set into the middle of that beautiful Floral patterned heart stamp from the 'Meant to Be ' Stamp set, I die cut this with the matching die, mounted it on foam pads and added it to my card front, over the ribbon border. I decided to embellish the heart with some very subtle peach roses and some delicate foliage. The only other embellishments that I added where the tiny heart pearls along the ribbon.
I didn't want to add anything else because I wanted to show off that stunning Embossing Folder, it has lots of places that you could add embellishments including tiny flowers and pearls of all sizes in the centres of the flowers and star like shapes. I think I will be using this folder quite a lot.

Our Sophie flew off to Florida with Lewis's family, I will be honest and admit I shed a tear as she hugged me good bye. It's a long way for one of your babies to go without you, she did message me saying that she felt nervous and although she is a very much loved addition to Lewis's family she said she felt a little sad that and nervous that she wasn't with us.
She arrived at about 11pm last night and looked and sounded very tired bless her. They have only gone for a week so I think she will be that busy with all of the Parks and sight seeing that she won't have time for being Home Sick, her biggest obstacle is being without Lucy, the two of them are inseparable, Lucy is so lost without her and looking totally fed up, she has volunteered to work for the next few days keep herself busy, which will hopefully make things a little easier, it breaks my heart to see any of my children sad or upset. I dare say that this week, like the other 51 this year will fly by in a flash.
I am sending warm, loving hugs to all of you, my Dear Friends,
