Good Morning My Lovelies,
I hope that you all enjoyed what turned out to be a glorious day yesterday, we went out into garden in the afternoon and it was really warm, lovely to sit outside without being too hot.
Sophie has gone away to Longleat Centreparcs today with Lewis's family, she was really torn yesterday morning bless her, she had excitement because she was going away with Lewis but sadness that she was leaving her soul mate behind, those girls have a bond like I have never seen before, it goes beyond any other relationship, they are literally two halves of one!! Lucy seemed OK last night, she has two days off now, we said that we would go to cinema to kill some time, I am hoping to encourage her to do some cooking too.
Today's card ended up being a late night project, I think I finished at about 11 40 pm !
I used an old 'My Minds Eye' paper pad as I wanted a small pattern with good colour contrast . I punched 8 x 1 1/4 inch circles and folded the paper circles in half each way, giving 4 quarters, you then folded the sides of two quarters back and then back again. I can add a step by step if any of you want to have a go. Once you have your 8 folded circles you take a 2 inch circle and arrange the pieces around that circle making sure that the centre points all met up. I then used my Teflon folding tool to open up the petals so that the looked kind of symmetrical. I die cut a slightly larger circle to mount my flower on and then added a coordinating piece of paper on a 5 x 5 card blank and centred the flower on it, adding a couple of sentiments top and bottom. The final Flourish was the pearl in the centre of the flower.
I hope you like my card today.
Sending Love and hugs to all of you,
