Good Morning Ladies,
Here we are almost at the end of the week, Paul has tested negative at last so he has gone into work today and tomorrow too, I still have a strong Positive line (Paul's got lighter over last couple). So I think I will still have a few days. I am still having symptoms too, I woke yesterday morning with chills, however through the night I couldn't bare the covers over as I was too hot. Atleast he can go and get shopping etc, I did a foodshop via Amazon, the last time I did it it was brilliant, this time however it was a disaster, they do text you with substitutions, they were ridiculous though, they wanted to substitute English Muffins with cheese topped Rolls, a fresh Uncut Granary Loaf substitute was some basic brand thin cut bread. I am fussy about 🍅 tomatoes, I don't mind paying extra for decent vine tomatoes that taste of tomato, they substituted my Picolo Vine tomatoes with some awful cheap cherry tomatoes that weren't even red!!! So we ended up with none of the bakery goods I had ordered, the sad thing was Lucy and Paul were counting down the time to the shopping being delivered so they could have a sandwich!!
Today's card was made using an embossed background piece that I found in my 'PHD' box. I love the tile effect of this embossing folder, it reminds me of Greece for some reason, which is why I was drawn to the blue ink (Blueprint Sketch) I added Gold Gilding wax over the blue ink to really highlight the detail of the embossed pattern. Now to me this background looks kind of masculine, so I went for simple embellishment, I die cut the Sentiment in matching colours and layered them with foam pads. I matted the Embossed piece onto Gold mirror card and then onto a 5x5 white card blank . The only finishing touch was adding Nuvo drops to the centres of the larger squares. I have enjoyed this challenge, It has had me reach for things I haven't used in a while. I hope you have enjoyed it too .
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
