Good Morning Ladies,
How are you all feeling, there does seem to be some horrible bugs around at the moment, Lucy has a nasty cough and cold with chills and flu like aches all over her body, Matt was convinced he has covid back, I explained that it was doubtful but he had similar symptoms to Lucy with body aches etc. I hope that you are all managing to dodge the germs, I think that we all have enough to deal with as it is.
Lucy and Sophie are having a bonus week off as the Wildlife Park remains closed due to the car park and footpaths being so icy, its fun having them home but it seems like there is always someone in the pantry and the kettle hasn't been off all day, it's a good job we don't have a Smart meter, I'd be looking at the thing every five minutes, do you ladies have them??
Today's card is a very quick and simple card that I sat and made yesterday afternoon, I was really just playing with a stamp set and matching punch (for the vase). I hadn't even opened it and I have had it since October but we have been focusing on Christmas cards since then. It's a two step stamp set, the bottle has the main bottle and an outline that gives circle at the bottom detail then the flowers have the petals (which I stamped in Pale Papaya) and the leaves and flower centres (which I stamped in Garden Green) the same colour as the bottle. I did punch the bottle out as I was having a play with all elements but it would have been better to have stamped it direct to paper as I think flowers should stand proud of the vase, but I wasn't about to fussy cut the flowers on this occasion. To finish the card I created a tiny label and stamped 'with love' and stuck that to top of the bottle and attached a Pale Papaya Bow to finish. Now with hindsight and had I been in a better frame of mind I would have cut the stamped layer smaller and matted and layered an extra layer with some texture, embossing etc, but for a little experiment piece it's ok. I might even have a play with it today, watch this space! 🤣
Ladies I hope that you are able to stay warm and cosy today,
Sending love and warm hugs,
