A Silhouette card

 Good Morning Ladies, 

We're Home!!  I was so looking forward to sleeping on our own mattress, with our own pillows, sleeping on naff pillows made us appreciate how amazing our memory foam pillow is!   

I am looking forward to not getting in the car today, although I do have a blood test this afternoon, I can't remember what for though!!  I will be giving the surgery a piece of my mind while I am there though! 

Today's card was a card I made to use up some of my background stash,  I can't remember what the background is made from, it looks like Pixie Powders or Brusho's . I simply die cut the Tim Holtz Meadow background die out of black card and added it to the background and added a sentiment. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                    xxxxxx 


  1. Hi Sandra and all looking in. What a pretty card. I love the delicate shades against the silhouette of that lovely die cut. Is it a background you used when playing with the fine tip bottle and Brushos? Whatever I love it all. I hope you got a good nights sleep back in your own bed. Pillows and your own kettle are two things I miss the most when away. Good luck this afternoon!!!
    I dropped two of my die storage boxes yesterday while looking for something. Yes they both opened and yes the contents of both went everywhere! I’m not sure if I have found them all? I’ve got a note stuck on the hoover reminding us that we need to be careful when using it. Does anyone take a photo of each of their dies so you have a visual record? Another thing I wish I had done but will do from now on.
    Have a good day whatever you are up to. And take an umbrella if your forecast is the same as ours. Hugs and take care. Love Sue xx

  2. Hi everyone
    A beautiful card Sandra. I like the mellow background with the black meadow, very nice.
    Waiting to hear from mum when dad had his operation. Brenda, it is his second or third one he has put in over the years. Still waiting tho for the brain scans results.
    We have gone down to Bournemouth for a few days. After two busy weekends and sister in law between we felt we needed a break. Just wished my teeths weren't so sore, the antibiotics have done nothing.
    Wishing you all a good day whatever you are up to. Many hugs to you all, xxx

  3. Hello, what a change, really much cooler here today.
    Been out in the garden potting on some little lupins that I grew from seed earlier in the year.
    Love your card today, the back against the bright background..
    Managed to do some ironing today, have a lot to do, because I left it when it was so hot.
    Hope you all had a nice day, Lilian

  4. Hello Sandra and everyone,
    Lovely card Sandra the background is brilliant and complement by these silhouette dies. These dies are so versatile, a great addition to our die stash. They can be used as you have done - in black also I have cut mine out in white and coloured them, as I said so versatile.
    I hope today hasn’t been too stressful and the blood test went well. You must be wondering what to do first at home, unpacking from your holiday and packing ready for the move. Wish we were closer and could lend a hand. Don’t go doing to much and exhausting yourself. xxx
    Take care everyone, Sleep well, Love Brenda xxx

  5. Hi everyone

    Have a good night everyone
    Sending hugs to you all xxx
