Good morning folks. Hope you are all well.
I managed to get to the craft show at Bruntingthorpe and met up with some chums PeeJay, Anne, Karen and Pam................of course, I heckled Mr L too.
Had a lovely catch up over a cappuccino and small sliver of coffee and walnut cake (Don't listen to anyone who tries to suggest that the slice of cake wasn't small).
I was very restrained and only spent £10 on 4 packs of coloured A4 card, a pack of A3 330gsm white card, and 4 mini border embossing folders.
I think its the first time its been held there and its a lovely big hanger but it wasn't very busy.
Now, back to today's card. Its another John sample using the Gerbera Pop Out Panel die.
A simple looking card but not quite as straightforward as it looks at first glance. You can probably see what I did on the piccy below.
Cream, black and vintage gold card (Lime Tree)
JND Gerbera Pop Out Panel die
Cream and gold pearls
I cut the panel out of the centre of the cream layer. I then used my craft knife to nick out the pop out petals, as per above. It probably seems a faff but honestly doesn't take long at all.
I then cut out the panel again in the gold, left the petals in this time, lined it up under the cream panel and popped the gold petals through the cream apertures as per below............
Just something different, I thought.
My tomatoes finally arrived on Friday. I called them exotic as they are all different and strange colours.......in fact, they nearly got called erotic but thankfully, I spotted my spelling mistake before the blog went live.
I didn't want WART switching their attentions to the "erotic" veg and becoming TART (Tomato Attack & Removal Team).
Nice to have you holidaying ladies back. Hope you are refreshed and ready to roll up your sleeves in your craft rooms.
Busy week again here, but in a nice way. Lunch at a garden centre with PeeJay today and lunch with Davey on Wednesday before he heads off to Greenland (told you he gets about a bit) and then a guy is hopefully coming to repair the steps on our decking so that we can get back down into the rest of the garden without needing ropes and crampons.
Hope you all have a smashing week and thank you for stopping by and all your lovely comments.
