Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all doing OK and I am sending Special, Gentle Hugs to those that are having a struggle today, we all have those days after all.
The day just seem to disappear after Paul went to work at 1pm, first one sister called and then the other, by that time it was getting on for 4pm, so I went in to my Craft room to start on a project for a certain friend, well did I get messy, Paul wanted to know how I got paint in the back of my hair and on my face, I always find that when I attempt a 'Messy Background' it ends up being to messy or not messy enough, I think thats mainly because I don't usually 'do' messy anything! I finally left the 22nd Version (Probably the 6th) for the night, to dry and for the glue to adhere the elements solidly in place (fingers crosses that the cats don't go in there and have a play, well that would make a different kind of texture to the background...paw prints and cat hair!! 🙀 🐾, If it all sticks well I hope to finish it and get it in the post today, wish me luck!
Today's stunning project is one of Pat's latest Groovi cards, I did see this being started earlier in the summer and I can't find the words to describe how beautiful that scalloped edging is, bare in mind that Pat has picot cut the edge of both layers, if you zoom in you can see all of the incredible detail that Pat has embossed into the edges too. Then we move onto that stunning centre piece, e beautiful Bird house that has the most exquisite cut work detail on the roof, then you move down to those tiny flowers and leaves that have been embossed and then coloured. Your hands must have been aching after you finished that piece Pat, so much piercing and snipping! Its worth it though, the card is an absolute work of art, I love it. XXX
We have a few errands to run today, some paperwork today for Paul's operation etc, so I'm sure the day will fly by, I don't mind though as Paul's on late shift this week and that makes the day really long.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and Hugs to all of you,
