Good Morning Ladies,
Well I had a very eventful end to the weekend, hence the very simple card today!
We decided on homemade Lasagne on Sunday instead of Roast, I hadn't made one for a while so didn't mind at all, got it all made and in the oven and one of the girls had asked for homemade coleslaw to go with it, which prompted me to try the Vegetable Spiralizer that I bought back in the summer and was yet to try, I opened it all and cleaned it, Lucy came down and helped me do the 'spiralizing' (it's actually quite fun) the only issue is that your carrot is in one long spiral strand, so trying to serve it was like serving spaghetti, we made the coleslaw and put it in fridge to chill, Paul took the machine to wash and I warned him to be careful as the blade was like a razor, he washed it and set it to dry, I wanted to clear up though so I could sit down after dinner knowing it was all clean in the kitchen, so I started to dry the machine, the bloomin tea towel got caught in the blade and it slipped out of my hand, without a thought I went to grab it, my thumb catching it by the blade, it sliced a big horse shoe shaped chunk out of the pad of my thumb, all I can say is that the pain was like no other, agony, there was blood everywhere, I had to go and lie down as I felt like I was going to pass out, Paul tended to my finger, he looked a little pale and just put a big dressing on it as soon as he could, he always remains so incredibly calm somehow. Needless to say that it had me up all night, every time my thumb touched anything I could feel the bit moving under the dressing and it was so sore. The girls insisted on changing the dressing today and cleaning around the wound, i did manage a look and I think it is going to take a while to heal as it's quite deep. I will add that you do not realise how many things you use your thumb for until you can't use it !
If you could have seen me trying to ink up a stamp yesterday afternoon, you would have found it highly amusing, so I only managed a simple card today, I quite like how it turned out though.
For today's card I took a 5 1/2 inch square card and stamped the Honey Doo Daffodils Stamp on the front, slightly over to one side. I wasn't sure how I was going to colour it but ended up with the least messy option of my Derwent Colorsoft Pencils, blending three shades of yellow for the daffodils and a fresh green colour for the foliage.
You have no idea how hard it was not to 'mat and layer' the image etc but I decided to stick with simple, the sentiment came from the SU Golden Afternoon stamp set, I just love the font and the sentiment is just lovely.
So no ribbon, no gems, no mats and layers, just a simple one layer card !
Pat is coming over today, it seems like ages since we last caught up, so I am looking forward to that.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
