Good afternoon, thank you for coming in for a little look of what I have been doing or as Charlie would say "playing". I had been talking to my friend who suffers from Parkinson's and her voice is going, she gets down at times but yet tries to keep cheerful. This weather gets her down, she is very much a sunshine person, not sitting it but just the nice bright days. Anyway as they live outside Birmingham we can't just pop down to see them. So a card with some hugs I hope will help a little.
Well we woke up this morning to a dusting of snow, but under it is ice. I found this out while out walking Harris - yes I went my length, I am ok I will be a bit black and blue and stiff and sore. Arnica tablets taken so hoping that will reduce things. I wouldn't care but I had on my walking boots with really good soles. Never mind I didn't break anything and that's all that matters.
Charlie is slowly getting there, and thank you for all the well wishes for him. He was hoping to get out for a little walk, but that will have to wait, he hoovered up while I was out and he was wiped. Looks like I will be dog walking for a few more days.
This is a 51/2 x6 card, it was an off cut that was lying by where I cut my card, it had a damaged edge, so I trimmed that off then added half of the striplet die as a border again it had not cut that great but this half was fine. The Lemon card is from First Eddition Family ties, die cut from Sue Wilsons San Francisco and Innsbruck sets, these were in my box thought they were all cut from the same card, but photograph shows they are not, you don't see it, well my eyes dont see it ( do need new glasses I think) when you look at the card. Foliage again are all bits out of my box, flowers are ones Patrica had made for me also the stick pins.
That's it for today, off to cut and emboss a few more bits of the invitation. A few at a time rather than hurry them.
Thank you for all your lovely comments on my " oldie". Margaret Corgie owner showed her young grand son the picture of the board and now he wants her to help make one. I bet I wasn't her favourite blogger on Friday !!!...... Have fun Margaret. I am always glad to share my ideas.
Do take care when out, I will be more carefull that's for sure.
