Karen's amazing 'Wobble' Card
Good Morning Ladies,
It sounded like we all had that 'Monday' morning feeling yesterday, I'm never a fan of Monday's anyway but this week the Girls were both working too so the house was really quiet, chilly too, I do feel so wasteful heating the whole house when it's just me here, but I hate being cold and it seems to make me body seize up, I sat in my craft room for a while with a throw over my legs and a hot water bottle, it feels worse after you have been in the kitchen because the Aga kicks out so much heat, it's too much work to take all my craft stuff in there, I would be forever up and down. I will usually 'make do' with hot water bottle etc until about 2.30pm and then I will go an advance the heating, it doesn't seem so bad when it's just an extra hour! Paul just says to put it on and not worry but this house is huge and costs a lot to heat, I might look into getting a little heater of some kind for my craft room anyway, it has two windows and a tiny radiator and no carpet, the radiator is also the last one in the line from the boiler so it never seems as hot as the others, we'll see!
I was going to keep Karen's Wobble card for Saturday's post but I was just too excited to keep it to myself. It's brilliant Karen you are just so talented when it comes to coming up with designs that will make a card 'personal' for someone, whether it's for a Hobby or Job or an achievement you get it spot on every time.
"This is the wobble card I have made
It is a leaving card and my “brief” was She works in Child Health So could I do something along those lines AND as a joke include a Buddha as she thinks everything is some way or another is connected to Buddhism
I used a Serif background and googled free cartoon children images I printed off a second sheet of children and cut them on ScanNCut to layer on top xx"
The Buddha is in the top left hand corner, (this is what I mean about Karen going that extra mile to really make a card special to it's recipient).
Karen did say after that she ordered some actual 'card wobblers' to make it easier next time, getting the weight right when making the wobble mechanism yourself is quite fiddly.
The other good thing about them is that they fold flat for postage!
Thank you so much Karen for sending your card in for us all to see, your description had us all intrigued. XXX
Sending hugs to all of you, extra large ones for our dear Lynda,
Love and hugs
