Pat's fantastic Floral Groovi card

Good Morning Ladies,

I hope that you are all well, we are on the run down to the weekend now so that's a reason to smile😁

Today I want to share with you this beautiful card from Pat, it features some very intricate Groovi work, Pat has created a gorgeous pattern that involves using your piercing tool to cut out those tiny crosses, it's just so intricate Pat I don't know how you do it, I would be far too heavy handed for anything as delicate as that.  Pat has placed her piece of Groovi work over a coloured Background and then added that beautiful frame that she gets from her friend at the Groovi class she goes to in Abingdon, the lovely lady designs the frames and then creates the patterns to fit perfectly inside the frames and then feature room in the centre for you to add your own embellishment.
Pat has added a pretty flower, now I am not sure if that pink flower is made of pink card that has been embossed to highlight its details or If it is one of those embellishments that has the same texture as those pink shrimp sweets, I think that those ones are made from paper clay, Sue and I made some embellishments a year or so ago using Paper Clay and the results were similar looking.
Pat has popped a simple button into the centre of the flower and that button really gives the flower 'life', I love the colour contrast Pat.
Thank you so much for sending your card in for me to share with our friends Pat xxx

I hope that you all have a lovely day,

Love and hugs

    Pat-what a beautiful card, it’s really lovely.

    I was shattered yesterday evening-spent virtually all day in meetings-the sort that involve flip charts & spreadsheets! Looking forward to the weekend.


  2. Morning Everyone
    OHHHH PAT what a gorgeous card. I love every bit of it.
    I have never tried parchment work and I've always loved the finished look and made comments everytime I seem some;so much so that my birthday gift this year is a 'Groovi Starter Kit' so I just might be asking advice when I make a

    I've got my annual MOT this morning so please cross your fingers for me. At least this year they are doing blood tests and review in the same appointment instead of spreading it across two weeks like they have done for years.

    I still have to finish off my CC too.

    The CAFE is OPEN so pop in when you can and help yourselves to drinks and cakes.
    HUGS are on their way to you all. Take care and stay safe.xxxx

  3. Hi everyone,

    Have a good day everyone.
    Hugs to all and special ones if you're not feeling so good today.
    Love Valx

    Sorry I didn’t get in yesterday, it was after 10.30 pm when I arrived home, I had a really good journey and a great day but was very tired. It was lovely to spend time with my sister, during the afternoon she had two more visitors, so it was a very sociable day.
    Sandra I hope you are alright have you been back to the doctors yet? Sending gentle hugs. xx

    Had a busy day today did the shopping, even managed to fit in a trip to the Range, didn’t go to mad in there and only picked up one craft item. But it’s still quite a novelty for me - I’m like the child in the sweetie shop who go there !
    Sleep well everyone, Love Brenda xxx
