A couple of Older Shape Themed Cards


Good Morning Ladies, 

Just a really quick blog post today as I am suffering with another UTI, this one seems extra painful, aa I am writing this I am waiting for a call from the Duty Doctor after absolutely losing my cool wuth the receptionist at the surgery, who took it upon herself to decide that I could wait until the following day to be seen! I had to get quite cross with her, I said "its Ok I will call 111 and explain that you refused to see z disabled woman with a history of chronic UTi's"  at which point she changed her tune and passed a message to Duty Doctor! If I don't hear ny 5 pm I am calling 111 !!  I will update you later today.

I'm afraid I couldn't sit, stand or lie down comfortably yesterday,  so card making was off the agenda,  so I have shared a couple of 'Oldies'  to give you a little inspiration.  Descriptions are below.......

Card 1:  I die cut lots and sat and played, making different combinations of layers in shades of blue and green and then arranging them and adding a simple sentiment. For some reason though I didn't matter whether I used my laptop Camera of my phone camera the photo looked out of focus, I'm not sure if it is the colours causing the issue of the triangles. Very odd, it's the first time that has happened to me, it didn't do it when I photographed the other Triangle card which makes me think its the colours. Curious!! 

Card 2:  I rummaged through my dies and decided on triangles.  The papers I used were a £1 set of 6x6 papers I got from Every Crafts a pound a few years ago.  I die cut a few and backed them onto some 300gsm white card for strength so that the pieces would sit better on the card.    I arranged the triangles and adhered them, I added a few tiny ones to fill a gap. Then stamped a sentiment in a colour to match the Butterflies on the papers.  I die cut some tiny Butterflies to embellish the card and that was that. 

I hope that you all have an amazing day,

Love and hugs to all,



  1. Two beautiful cards Both using the same shape but are very different from each other
    I hope the antibiotics kick in soon and really don’t push yourself Rest helps heal Let the girls or Paul cook etc or get a takeaway And don’t feel guilty about it young lady!
    I have the hygienist later Whoop whoop Take care everyone xx

  2. Hi everyone
    Great cards today, love them both 😊
    Hope you managed to get some sleep last night, and the antibiotics start working soon. Take it easy xx
    Done some crafting this morning and I’m going to sit and watch a Christmas film this afternoon ☺️🎄🎅🏼
    Enjoy the rest of the day everyone
    Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hi Sandra and all looking in today.
    Two lovely cards showing how you can use shapes for very different cards. Good on you for telling the gp receptionist that you had to talk to the doctor, who has several long years of training against someone who can answer the phone and use a computer to book appointments (sorry please don’t take this the wrong way as I know receptionists do sometimes have some medical training but I hope you all know what I mean) therefore probably knows better than she does about patients illnesses. I’m glad you managed to track down somewhere that could fill the script. Please don’t push yourself to make a card for tomorrow. We all love looking back at your older cards. I hope you can get a bit of rest my lovely xx
    I haven’t got anything done yet today so off to my desk now.
    Brenda I hope your appointment went well today with good results xx
    Sending hugs to you all. Take care xx

  4. Hi everyone
    So sorry Sandra that you once again have problems. I hoping by now that you have gotten some help and soon be on the mend. As this coming back you do need to have a proper look at by doctor. Ask for a referral to a specialist. You shouldn't have to suffer like this. Take care and rest!
    Brenda, hope everything went well today.
    Karen, hope all went ok at the hygienist.
    Sonia, which x-mas film did you watch today ? I am a softy for these films and also the older ones (even Black and Whites ones) hihi How long do you have to work your notice for ? Hope Barney is doing alright.
    Sue, how are you doing ? feel so sorry to hear you still having the migraines. You take care.
    Janet, everything ok with your hand and Jim is getting better ? Take care of eachother.
    Lilian, hope your back is better and the new meds is working and not making you feel to groggy.
    Had a weird day and nothing seem to go right today. Got a message from doc. to check my blood pressure morning and night
    for the next two weeks. Already got two type of pills for it as it used to be high but think it is ok now. Hoping to get some crafting done tomorrow but my cutting plate cracked so badly so cant use it for the machine so the trusty Cuttlebug had to come out again.
    Sending many hugs to you all and also to our missing friends. Lynda, Michele and Cheryl, hope you are ok. xxx

  5. Hello, late again.

    Had my biopsy at the hospital today, just have to wait for the results now, quite painful today.
    Love the cards for todays inspiration, when you made them it must have taken ages.Indigo blu have a new product out to make your own gilding wax, unfortunately by the time I went to order them they had sold out. There was sets with the base and three pots of luscious plus three empty pots to put your mix in. Very disappointing that they had sold out so soon.
    Have finished my challenge card will take a pic and send it to Sandra in the morning.
    Have a good night, especially Sandra, do hope the meds are working now. Lilian
