Red Flowers Inloveart's Die card
Good Monday Morning Ladies,
Wow that was some Storm, Ciara did some damage, we could hear the trees creaking in the wind through the night, (our garden is surrounded by very mature trees), there were plenty of branches scattered around the garden and drive way this morning and throughout the day, the rain was incredible to watch, never seen that amount in such a short space of time, as I am writing this post (10.06pm Sunday evening) the wind is as strong as it has been all day, the draughts around the house have doors banging and rattling all over. Milo, Bella and Harley just don't know what to make of this weather, the cats refused to go out but kept coming back to 'ask' to go out, that went on pretty much all night, Harley barked at every strange noise, not the best night sleep. I rang mum to check on her, she doesn't go outside anyway but was a bit worried, my sister had been to make sure everything was safe and secure. Paul's parents had it quite rough in Brixham, I think they lost their Bird Bath and Bird table (the both got knocked over and broken), they are quite close the coast though so I guess it would be worse.
I hope that you all got through the rest of the day without any damage.
We didn't do very much, I decided that before I unpacked all my bags from Watford that I would move things around a little and have all my inks in one tower, I will take a photo in better light tomorrow to show you what I mean, the good thing now is that I have my Distress Inks, then Oxides and then all of my SU inks, so I can see at a glance what colours I have and what will go with what. I sorted a couple of other areas too. I didn't get down to making today's card until after I put the roast beef in the Aga at 5.30pm! With all the fiddling and faffing and cutting three layers for every flower, I then cut the border that I made the flowers with into my card background (not that you can see it ).
I quite like how it turned out, it's quite bright and cheerful and shows that you can do more than just make a border with that die.
The colours I used for the card are Real Red, Old Olive, Black and white. I apologise for using that same sentiment stamp, it just seems to work for everything I make at the moment. (It's from HoneyDoo).
I hope that all has calmed a little where you are and you have a quiet and relaxed day and I hope our working girls (Karen and Michele) have a good day at work.
Love and hugs to all of you,
