Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are well, can you believe its Thursday today?! The weeks are just flying past at the moment, we will all be seeing the festive things for sale before we know it.
Oh Janet you are so right, rain for 40 days if rains on St Swithin's! We're doomed! lol
We have had a an email from our holiday company to say that they have put all the safety measures possible in place as have the camp site that we go to, so if we feel the need to cancel now it will be at our own expense as there is no 'actual risk' as far as the government saying its ok to travel etc. W have gone through all the travel arrangements and talked through the holiday itself and have decided that we will go, for me it's partly because I know it's the only time in the year that Paul relaxes properly and for Paul it would frustrate him to lose so much money. We are travelling on the Eurotunnel so will stay in our own car for the entire journey, which is the option with the least risk. Our overnight hotel is a little cabin so no mixing in a big hotel and when we arrive we have our own mobile home. We will take the necessary products to thoroughly sanitize everything on arrival and in overnight cabin, we also decided to take our own cutlery and plates, cups, bowls, we have some in our picnic hamper anyway.
It's a weird feeling, normally you are excited about a holiday but this feels totally different.
Soph and Lucy aren't coming with us though, I don't want them to fly because I think the recycled air is a concern, they also don't want to ask for holiday as their boss was good enough to pay their whole wage throughout their Furlough, which I am proud of them for. a lot of people their age wouldn't think twice about asking for holiday!
Today's card was made with the same 'Tim Holtz Botanical Embossing Folder as I used for yesterday's card.
This time I used Black card, after running it through the embossing folder I simply used the back of a piece of cut and dry foam to apply some Gilding Wax to the very top of the raised areas, it's hard to capture the shine on the camera but it looks really effective.
To finish the card I die cut the 'Hello' 3 times and glued them together and I added Gilding wax to the top one. I placed it onto a piece of plain black card so that it would stand out from the background.
It looks quite effective in up close.
It was great to catch up with Pat yesterday, it was just like times before pandemic XXX
I get to do it all again with Sue today, XXX
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
