Good Morning Ladies,
Well yesterday just seem to disappear, I had barely said goodbye to Paul when I was saying Hello again at 9pm!
I had planned to get a few cards made in order to get ahead but that just didn't happen, I managed this one, which I finished about 10 minutes before Paul got home.
after Paul left Sophie wanted to try a new recipe for lunch, it was a Couscous based dish, the couscous had lots of spring onions, parsley and mint, lemon zest and juice, there was a seperate dressing that was made with Harissa Paste with lemon juice and a little olive oil stirred through, we gridled a block of Halloumi Cheese and arranged it over the couscous, scattered over some toasted almonds and then drizzled the sauce over. It was absolutely delicious 😋 !
After creating that with Soph I went into my craft room, then Danielle called, which was lovely although we didn't chat as long as we usually do as she was busy with her girls. I got a bit more crafting done and decided what I was going to make and set about starting the card, the girls then left as they were off out for dinner with a friend, taking advantage of the government's new 'Half Price Meal' voucher, so I was left to feed Harley and the cats, by this time it was almost 7pm, then Matt rang, I carried on trying to finish my card while we chatted, Paul came home, then took Harley out, I said goodbye to Matt and that was that, 7 hours gone!
Todays card I made using the SU 'Jar of Love' stamp set and matching dies. I stamped the jar directly onto my card front (for placement) the stamped another and die cut it, I stamped the stems onto the jar so that it looked like the flower stems were in the water, I then stamped all of the flowers and foliage and die cut them, I arranged the flower heads and foliage around the top of the jar, tied a bit of twine around the top of jar and tucked a die cut tag with the sentiment underneath the bow.
I added a piece of a doily under the bottom of the jar to 'ground' the jar. (an idea I saw on pinterest).
I placed the card front onto a base card made using Granny Apple Green Card.
I think it's very spring like, quite pretty too ;)-
Pat is coming over today, so hopefully I will get more crafting done, as well as chatting of course X
I hope that all of you have a lovely day, however you are spending it,
Love and hugs to all of you,
