Good Wednesday Morning Ladies,
Here we are at the middle of the week already! The weather here turned out really well yesterday, we had a lovely Sunny afternoon, I didn't really see much of it though as I am trying to get some cards made so that I can schedule some blogs ahead that I can just add a daily update to each day, that way there is less pressure on days when I am not feeling great. (thats the theory anyway). I was quite pleased with myself as I made 3 cards yesterday, as soon as Paul left for work I got myself into the craft room and got on with making cards, next thing I knew it was time for the girls to come home, the time just flew by.
Today's card I made on Monday while playing with some of my newer Stampin Up stamp and die sets, this die set is called 'Encircled' they are a pretty selection ornate circle dies, Stampin Up have made both an every day stamp set and a Festive stamp set too with some lovely sentiments, I hope they do more of this as you get much more value out of the die set. The paper line is called Peaceful Place, it's a lovely collection of shades of grey patterned papers that are foiled. I used the die set to create the aperture in the card and then used the same die to create a frame around it, I decided to add the silver foil to the frame, so I die cut a foil piece and pieced the fall out pieces back in, it was a labour above! I loved how it turned out, The inside matches perfectly, to finish the card I added some tiny sparkles around the card front. I hope that it inspires some of you too.
I want to send special hugs to those of you going through a tough time right now,
Love and hugs to everyone,
