Good Morning Ladies,
How are we all today, we were blessed with another beautifully sunny day, it felt colder than yesterday though, it's so lovely to have all the windows open letting that fresh country air in, we stripped the bed while it was sunny and breezy too, nothing feels as good as line dried bedding, it just smells fresher! I did regret not remembering to close the window earlier though, as I went in the bedroom at 4.30pm to take my meds and it was freezing in there. It felt clean and aired though.
I sat and made Paul's Mum's Mothers Day card yesterday afternoon, the pale yellow looks darker on camera, I paired it with cream for a softer look, I used Sara Davies Vintage Lace Rectangle dies for the detail, I didn't have a Mother's Day stamp though, I have no idea what i used to use, after rifling through a load of Magazine stamps I found one, it isn't perfect but looks okay, I embossed it with gold embossing powder for a more luxurious look, I used gold edged ribbon to match it too I arranged the flowers and for a change I used Pinflair Glue rather than my hot glue gun, it made less mess, there were no glue strings everywhere either! I felt a bit nostalgic filling up the syringe, like the old days of crafting ( when we used Kanban kits)! Anyway I hope she likes it, I don't find it easy doing Mother's/Fathers Day cards, I just treat it like any other card, try not to think about it. I have to make her birthday card today, she will be 80 on Friday!!
Guess who forgot to make the bed before bedtime, there is nothing worse than being ready for bed and walking in to find an unmade bed!! It was lovely once it was made though 😁
Lilian I hope that you are over the worst of Covid, we are laying low as our whole village has a mass infection as they all went to a leaving drinks party at the pub a week or so ago and everyone that went has become ill with covid. That's how easy it can spread, the newest varisnt is even worse than omnicron
Take care and stay safe my lovely friends,
Love and hugs to all,
