Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all ok, how is your week going, it's 'hump' day today, which is a relief as after today it's only 2 days to the weekend!! (not that I am wishing my life away)!
Danielle made this card for Simon for Valentines day and was showing me as she was making it, after she had finished I told her that it would be perfect for our 'Shades of' Challenge, so she let me share it with all of you, I think we are safe, I don't think Simon reads my blog! lol
To make this card Danielle took a piece of watercolour card and die cut some tiny hearts, she then took some sticky dots, de-tacked them a bit and popped them on the hearts and arranged them on her card. She then took a spritzer bottle with a little bit of water and added some 'Night of Navy' Re-inker to the water and spritzed it over the card. Before removing the hearts Danielle took the Night of Navy ink pad and mixed a little water with ink in the lid and used this to 'flick' some darker (more concentrated spots of blue around the hearts. The next step was to peel away the hearts and revealing the white masked off pattern. A could of die cut words in Navy and Silver and s scattering of sequins finish this amazing card beautifully. Danielle matted and layered onto Navy, silver and then onto a white card blank.
A truly amazing card Danielle, thank you so much for allowing me to share it with everyone, it just might inspire someone that is struggling with this weeks challenge. xxxx
Brenda, It was so lovely to read that Anne is doing so well, it's remarkable to think that this time last week she was still waiting to have it done. Hopefully she will keep this pace of recovery up and be home in no time. I imagine she will feel like she has a new lease of life bless her. Thank you so much for keeping us updated, it's so uplifting reading such positive and happy news. xxxx
Lilian, great news that you have a date for your brace, not too far away either, lets keep everything crossed that it gives you so comfort. Being in pain is just exhausting, it kills your creativity too.
We like you have our first little cluster of Snowdrops, they were peeking through the frozen snow on Sunday , it really does make you smile to look at them. I often wonder how something so delicate can be so resilient to the frost, snow and ice! They are also an early indicator that Spring isn't too far away, fingers crossed!! xxxx
Michele how was your meal last night? I hope you had a good laugh and a relaxed evening my lovely xxxx
I am not going to 'jinx' my days plans, all I will say is that I am hoping for a visit from Mrs (B)rown!!
I hope you all have a good day too,
Sending Love and Hugs to all of you,
