My Sentiment Focal Point Card
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you have all got through the worst of Storm Ciara without too much trouble, I won't complain as it meant that Paul was home by 11am as his building wasn't safe enough to enter, later on in the day the council have closed roads around where the Hangar is as the wind picked up again, so we will see what tomorrow brings.
Well we had a right day of discoveries in our house on Monday evening and yesterday, both Lucy and Paul got their car tax reminder letters and Lucy asked Paul what a 'MOT' certificate was (as it was listed on the form). Paul explained and told Lucy to check online when hers expired, we both said ''you should be fine as you bought the car at the beginning of April and the garage said that they MOT'd it for you when you bought it''!!! She decided to look anyway only to discover that it ran out on Tuesday (yesterday) so he hadn't MOT'd it after she paid at all, Paul took her to the local garage yesterday afternoon, hopefully he will get it done this morning (fingers and toes crossed)! As she has work today and tomorrow.
So then yesterday Paul decided that he ought to check his …….His RAN OUT LAST AUGUST , the garage that he bought it from back on 30th March last year MOT'd it as we wanted to make sure it was definitely ok for girls to drive! Paul has the original Sale document that has written on it New MOT and Warranty, (luckily) , it made me feel sick to think that he had been driving uninsured and illegal since August last year! He is going to read them the riot act today!
Luckily we have two cars!
Pat came over yesterday and after a quick lunch we got down to some Groovi'ing!! Pat was finishing some of the projects that she started at a Groovi Class in Redditch, some stunning projects!
I started today's Challenge card while we were chatting and singing along to a selection of songs, Pat was groovin! the music while she 'Groovi'd! It certainly had Sophie giggling!
I took a piece of light purple coloured parchment, embossed the frame and inner detail into the frame, I then used an eraser to remove some of the purple from the back of the parchment so that I could add some colour to the flowers, I then decided to give it a scalloped edge and then picot cut it, the poor light had me struggling with the piercing and cutting though so don't look too close at the edges.
I mounted my Groovi piece onto some dark purple card and attached with Brads, I then mounted it onto a white base card.
I like how it turned out and it certainly has a stand out sentiment!
I phone Lynda yesterday afternoon, we had a lovely chat, it does sound like she suffered a stroke a week or so ago and spent a few days in hospital, she seemed so much brighter yesterday though, I offered to do some stamping to send to her to colour and she loved that idea, so if any of you want to send some I know she would very much appreciate it. I am so pleased I rang, it was so lovely to hear her voice and have a giggle together. xxx
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
