The NEW version
The ORIGINAL Design
Good Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all well, we had a bit of an overcast day yesterday, we managed to get a couple of jobs done outside, I washed a few more plants to rid them of their aphids. We have been searching the garden for weeks for ladybirds but there are none, up until this year there have plenty in the garden, I have no idea why there aren't any about, we have always relied on them for their aphid eating ways, we had loads on the allotment which we used to transfer into the polytunnel. I don't think I have ever seen as many clusters of bugs on one plant before. I used a bucket with soapy water and a cloth to remove any that I noticed yesterday, so fingers crossed we could still be on track to have our own Home Grown Brussel Sprouts for Christmas Dinner.!
I finally managed to summon the inspiration to recreate one of my old cards for this weeks challenge yesterday afternoon, I kept looking through them but couldn't choose one.
I finally decided on the one pictured above, looking back I wasn't keen on the bow and that flower so I thought that I would do an 'Updated' version.
I used Pink Frog Super Smooth card and Blue card from LimeTree as they are similar colours to the original, instead of the stamped feature piece (I couldn't find the stamp), I used one of the 'New York' Collection dies by Sue Wilson, this particular Die is called 'Union Square'. The other layers were cut with Sue Wilsons Double Pierced Square Dies.
To finish my updated card I created a double bow with SU Dotted Tulle ribbon, topped with a flower made with the same blue card, stamped and embossed with white embossing powder, I shaped the flower in my Heartfelt Creations Mould, to finish the layered flower I popped a pearl in the cerntre.
I hope you like my updated version of the original card.
Lynda I was sorry to read that you have had another fall, I think that you need an Urgent revision of your whole care program, so that both you and Terry can relax and enjoy life a little bit more, it must be so frustrating and stressful for you both, sending you love and hugs xxxxx
Love and huge hugs to all of you,
