Good afternoon everyone,   I hope you have all had a reasonably good day with not to much rain, we have been lucky so far, but the sky is very black now, at least I got the washing dry so after I have done this it's a case of getting ironing board out and get it ironed and put away.

Tammy asked me to Thank You all for her birthday wishes.  That you all left along with your lovely comments.   She loved her card, bag & wallet, of course she loved the contents too.   We had a lovely afternoon. Cake and coffee was lovely too.

I am sorry to give you an over load of the dies used on today's card.    I have made this for my friends birthday. Now she always goes on about she wishes they were well enough off to be able to afford lots of diamonds, so I added lots of clear gems on to her card, hoping they will do instead of diamonds. ( the thought is there).

I embossed my 5x7 prefolded card with my trusty SB dotty folder, then backed my top piece with dark purple card  from paper direct.  The top piece was from a piece that I had cut the foliage out of for something else ( this was what decided me to make this card) didn't won't to waste it.  Cut my SW bow and ribbon strip out of the left over from the backing layer, added my gems and that's it. I love the simpleness of this card.
It's back to work tomorrow and another busy week, plus when Patricia and meet on Friday we went up to the Chemo Unit and The Maggies Centre at Ninewells to hand in a supply of nice biscuits for the tea trolleys, this is what we do from the profit of anything we sell.  Anyway I came away with 2 girl Nappy Cake orders which I need to get made up and delivered in the next week. I have most of what's required apart from a 2 little sun hats ( hopefully they will be needed) as both baby's are due next month.
Well I'd better not put off getting that ironing done, so I will finish here.
Take care.
