A simple Flowering Fields card


Good Wednesday Morning Ladies, 

We had sun yesterday but it was nowhere near as warm as it has been over weekend,  it was very windy too, it got two loads of washing dry in no time!  
Well hallelujah, I got some sleep, thank heavens, it was 8.25am when I woke as Soph came in to say goodbye as she left for work, Paul usually brings me a cup of tea when he gets up but he said he wanted to leave me to sleep!  He did ask if I heard the B1 Bombers taking off from Raf Fairford at 5am but unusually I didn't.  They have recently arrived back at Fairford, they are preparing to get the American Air Force base back up and runningfu time by next year, so there is a lot going around the camp, its literally across the river, at 5pm every day we are treated to a Bugler playing both our National Anthem and the Americans too.  

Todays card was one I saved on Pinterest from a blog called Crafty Place I believe.  I stamped the 3 flowers from the Flowering Fields stamp set in clear ink, added gold embossing powder and heat set. I then used Shaded Lilac, Picked Raspberry & Mowed Lawn Distress Inks to water colour the flowers and stems.  I die cut them and added them to my card made with linen effect card, I love that added bit of texture. A simple Happy Birthday stamped and embossed in gold finishes the card. 

I hope you all have a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

  7. Hi , from a very hot and sunny Cornwall.

    Sandra another lovely card today, so neat and lined up beautifully.

    I’ve had to spend the day searching my room for a piece of jigsaw, didn’t realise I’d lost until I’d finished, searched every, in the end tipped my bin out, no puzzle piece. Had to pull out my chest of drawers to find it. How it got there I have no idea.
    One good thing , while I was searching came across one of my boxes of punches, so guess what I’ll be using for this weeks card.

    Hope you are all ok, I feel quite lazy compared with you all. Lilian
