Good morning everyone. Hope you all survived the horrendous winds. Its fine if your house has been blown into a different county, as long as you are all safe. Only a few ripples across the pond so we escaped quite lightly (in fact, I think Speedy Gonpatricia causes more of a wake on one of her zoom abouts)
Thank you for your lovely comments as usual. to clarify from my last post, on Tuesday's I volunteer in an RSPCA charity shop. I love it as itsmy way of helping the animals without me blubbering over a sick cat or me doing 6 months for GBH if I got my hands on anyone abusing an animal.
The paying job is in a large chain store. Won't say who, in case I want to whinge about em hahaha!!!
Now, today's card is one Nesta asked me to make for her niece who, unsurprisingly, was going to be 30. This is the same niece with the purple and gold wedding theme, for whom I made the engagement card as shown here .
Its an 8x8 cream card base to start. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of gold mirror card and then a slightly smaller piece of purple card. Out of the purple, I cut the largest SB Majestic Labels 25 and also one of the SB Bracket Borders, top and bottom, as shown.
I embossed the portion of the gold card, that would show through the frame, with the That Special Touch Delicate Mask.
I then cut the nesting layers from the Majestic Labels 25 in gold and purple and also the leafy shaped die from the SB Botanical Swirls and Accents (did wonder if I would ever use this odd shaped die in this set but there you go). I matted and layered them on top of each other and stuck the leafy things on either side of the top layer.
In the centre of this I used. . . . . . . . John, look away. . . . . . . number peel offs for the 30. For the Happy Birthday, I did cut the letters from gold mirror card using a X-Cut Alphabet die.
Nesta loved the card but I have no idea if her niece did as the miserable g#t hasn't even bothered to text, nevermind phone, to say thanks to Nesta for the card and her present.
Well that's me for today folks. Day off (hurrah !!!) so off to the NEC for the Airport Duty Free Christmas sale first thing (handbags, perfume and Estee Lauder come to Momma) followed by a reunion with former workmates (one of whom has just come back from New Zealand) at a Thai restaurant for lunch and witty reparte lol !!!
Have a great day yourselves, whatever you're all up to.
