Thank you for all your lovely comments on my card. I know I am miles away from being able to make cards like all you wonderful card makers make, but I am enjoying doing something different and trying out using all these great dies and embossing folders that are out there. Today's cards is one that I made for Kathryn my friend who had her back op last Saturday, her op ended up taking 6 hrs. She is doing ok, up and moving they had her up with in a matter of hours. She now has 2 pins and 4 screws in her back but from that she no longer has the terrible pain in her leg. Granted her back is a bit tender and sore, then again if you had someone's hands inside your back for 6 hrs putting pins and screws in I think your back would be sore, now I only hope she will do as she is told and not over do it. Now for someone who can't sit still that can be difficult.
I wanted to try out a border dies and choose this one as it was a simple one, the butterfly die is ones that I bought myself as I just love butterflies. The embossing folder is one I have borrowed from Patricia. Added some flat backed pearls and hand wrote the message, Patricia has been looking out some stamps for me to use. I am going to a stamping up day at the tearoom at the beginning of Feb. So I can see some money being spent.
Off now to have some lunch then get back to work and a pile of ironing oh the joys, I might get away early as mummy is at home working and her and Anna were talking about going for a run after school Beth is away to her friends for a sleepover. So I might just be lucky but won't hold my breather.
Have a good weekend, I am looking after grand daughters tomorrow, and they want to do crafty stuff so will get that organised tonight.
