Good Morning Ladies,
Well what a wash out of day yesterday was (weather wise of course), it rained pretty much all day here, when it's constant rain it just makes you feel miserable, the whole house seemed dark all day. Like most of you it makes your joint aches 10 times worse too.
I did have an unexpected (only because i didn't get a text due to rubbish phone service) treat that really brightened my day, there was a knock at the door, I fully expected it to be the postman, as I got to the foor I was greeted with a lovely smile instead, (to be honest I couldn't see the smile for the mask but you can just tell some people's expressions from their eyes, something we will all learn to recognise in time.!! 😷😁
Anyway the lovely smile belonged to Sue, it was a lovely surprise and made me realise how much I have missed our crafty afternoons. We didn't even stop for lunch, we had a cup of tea and headed straight into the craft room, I got to have a flick through Sue's Die Cutting Essentials Magazine, I have to say that I really like the free die and there were some great inspiration ideas too.
For the rest of the afternoon we both got on with our own projects, mine was the card that I featured today.
I started the card yesterday while Pat was round, I had taken a Hazel Edwards Class by Email and Pat had done same one but by post, we got different projects though . Pat kindly let me use her Groovi plate, although I did order myself the set because there is a huge HALF Price sale on the Pergamano website, that includes the Clarity paper pads.
So I sat and embossed my design on Tuesday and then coloured it with my Polychromos yesterday.
I added glitter to the leafy fronds to give a bit of Christmas Sparkle. I didn't have the Clarity pad that Hazel used so I used Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide to create my background paper, I used it to create one of the layers too.
I quite like how it turned out, I hope you do too.
I hope that today is a little brighter for all of you,
Love and hugs to all of you
