Good evening to all my blog friends. I feel sure you will all be wondering if I have remembered a blog post this week but yes, here we are! It has been a most enjoyable weekend as we have had our little Clayton staying - he is so gorgeous and we are so thankful we can claim him as our little great grand baby. Mum and Shelma brought him up, so fun was had by all. It was very hard saying goodbye to them this morning. We are heading South in a few weeks as we are all gathering, as a family, to celebrate Grandad's 80th birthday at Pounawea. We so love getting everyone together whatever the occasion and this will be no exception.
Just quickly before heading to bed, I thought I would share another couple of cards which I have recently made.
I have made a gate fold card here, using a lovely die from Elizabeth Crafts called Romantic Bouquet, 1504. Prima, Amelia Rose Collection was used for both these cards and it is very pretty with it's foiled elements. I have tied the fronts together with some seam binding and have made use of two foamiran flowers and some berries. Copper shimmer card was used to cut out some leaves.
A plainer card this time. I have cut the bricks out using the Sizzix Thinlets Die, 661175. The effect is rather nice. An embellishment, some twine and again some leaves cut from the copper shimmer card. The foamiran rose completed this card. The sentiment and butterfly were part of the collection.
Thanks so much ladies for stopping by, you are all appreciated very much. The cards don't seem to be flowing so well these days - afraid I am really enjoying this retirement and making the most of it!!
All tonight, bed time. Happy crafting to you all and many blessings.
