Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
I thought that I would share a quote that kind of explains how lucky I feel to have you amazing ladies in my life, you can enlarge it to read it. ❤
What are you all up to today? We are having quite a relaxing day, Paul is packing the car with all the cardboard he can find to take to the tip, I think Mr Amazon delivered most of our Christmas gifts so you can imagine boxes that contained gifts for a good 15 people ! My utility room will feel quite spacious after today.
Janet your day sounded very eventful, I hope it all went smoothly. We had same instructions when the Sky man came, we weren't allowed to go on the room with him, keep it ventilated etc, when he came he wasn't bothered, he had a cuppa and didn't stop chatting! I guess the company has to tick all the boxes. How is your new bed? We are shopping for one, we have been for a while, it's so hard when you have had a good bed to part with it, although I am embarrassed to say that when we worked it out we had had our bed for 21 years !! I ordered it when Paul was in Iraq when the girls were about 6 months old!! We have had 2 different memory foam mattress toppers in the past few years, which makes the world of difference. The only problem we had was getting extra deep sheets. Our bed is also quite high, which makes it easier for me to get up from. We will keep looking.
"I recently finished this front of a cushion. It has the title 'PAM'S SAMPLER TREE EMBROIDERY PANEL. It is made by 'Quilters Trading Post.
All I need to do now to finish is iron the front and add a back to make a cushion."
So lovely Janet, I love the colours, also the flowers/leaves from all seasons. It will look so lovely when sewn onto a cushion, you are such an accomplished seamstress.
Thank you for sharing it with us XXX
Sonia's Shopping & Amazing Card
Sonia has treated herself to a couple of stamps from Chloe’s Creative Cards, they are called Snowfall Background & Stardrop Background, both are incredibly detailed but not too overwhelming, leaving you so many choices when it comes to finishing off the card, the stardrop one xould be used for anything from Christmas to Congratulations!!
Sonia wasted no time in having a play with them and made this amazing card for Dad.....
I’ve used the star one, and to be honest, the image hasn’t been stamping properly. Not sure if it’s just my inks or not enough pressure. I managed to use it for my Dads Birthday card, using distress oxide and embossing glaze.
"So, after searching YouTube I decided to make a ‘chuckie’. I’ve not used it yet, but will let you know
how it goes 😊"
Sonia I would love to hear how you get on with it, I have my jar ready and my MDF circles, I dug some felt out too.
In case some of you don't know about these, they are to help you add pressure when stamping with a platform, I have some stamps that I have to add all my weight to to get a good impression so using one of these might be really helpful. I know Our Karen made one too a few months back, do you use yours
Thank you so much for sharing your shopping and your Card and 'Chuckie' (I wonder why its called a chuckie) Sonia XXX
That's all for today my lovelies, I hope you all have a lovely weekend,
Love and hugs to all of you,
