Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all enjoyed the weekend, it was lovely and sunny yesterday but there was quite a strong wind that was a little chilly. We were outside most of the day, Paul was busy doing gardening, I sat outside most of the day, I helped with a few little jobs but my heart has been really playing up this past few days and I struggle to do anything without being out of breath, so very frustrating!!
Paul got loads done though, then we had a mess to clear up....
During the recent high winds the Mesh cage got blown off of our Chimney, we have reported it (as its not accessible for Paul to put it back on), anyway while sitting in the lounge yesterday morning I noticed that the fireplace was full of twigs, there were loads hanging out of the chimney too, so Paul gingerly cleared them all out, needless to say I was out of the room. While we were sitting outside we noticed a Blackbird flying around and dropping sticks into the chimney pot, poor thing doesn't realise that everything is falling right down and is being cleared out as fast as he is dropping it in. So hopefully we can get that sorted in the next few days, I couldn't bare for it to get to the point that they lay eggs.
Today's card is a very simple design, I saw something similar on Pinterest, I used a small square die to cut lots of squares out of some old Stampin Up Dsp called 'Colour Theory'. I arranged them in layers, fading the colours from Dark to light. The card base is 41/4 X 5 1/2 inch.
I used an old Spellbinders die to die cut the 'hello' sentiment, which I placed at the bottom of the card.
A simple design that needs no extra embellishment I feel.
Now I want to advise any of you that use the 'Wish' app or shop on their website to be very vigilant and keep a check on any cards that you use to make any purchases from it.
I had a call from my Credit card company yesterday to say that somebody had attempted to use my card to make a purchase of £168, luckily I have never used my Credit card to purchase anything from them so it was flagged as an 'Unusual' transaction and they checked to see if it was genuine, so it got declined. I was so relieved but shocked at the same time, how on earth do people get all of your card details? including everything you need to make a transaction! The chap from the Credit card company said that Wish was a hotspot for fraudulent card transactions. They cancelled my card and have sent me a new one thank goodness.
So frustrating to see so many people abusing the rules of Isolation and taking to beaches and parks, so bloody selfish (excuse my language) but it really frustrates me that people are so stupid and selfish that they don't realise that they are jeopardising the lives of so many and prolonging the Isolation for those of us that are obeying the rules! I can't understand why it's so hard to understand.
Soap Box back in its place for the next protest!!
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
