Just a note to say. . . . .


Good morning one and all. How's it hanging? (that's not a reference to Patricia's walking/loo habits). Its been a bit nippier here but I still have geraniums and fuchsias still in leaf and begonias still in flower. About 9 of my orchids (obviously indoors and don't ask how many I have. . . . .My name is Ang and I'm an Orchidaholic) have stems about to flower so the plants are happy.
Work is going well so far. Its busy as we have just had the annual stock take (three words that strike fear into anyone working in retail) but I like busy as the time passes quicker.
Glad that you all liked the white card. I will have a tinker with another one soon.

Before I forget, a mahoosive welcome to The Pond to Karen, my new follower. Hope you join us regularly Karen and feel free to leave a comment. I have only just noticed so haven't had time to pop to your blog yet but I shall. Elaine (Nattyboots) you're still not showing on my followers list but as you're probably sunning yourself somewhere, you maybe won't see this lol !!!

Now, today's card is more of a notelet to me but I guess it could be to say anything. I usually have a stock of these to use for notes rather than pushing bits of paper through letter boxes for friends or neighbours but due to the condition Craftus Interruptus (work) I had not replenished my stock so I had to do this one in a jiffy for a note to be written.
I started with a 5x7 card blank which I layered the front completely with orange Lidl card. I then cut a slightly smaller piece of bright yellow PMD card (though it doesn't look as bright on the photos) and cut the SB Die D-Lite Medallion One die out of the centre.
I then ran this through the GC with the Couture Creations Bouquet embossing folder, wrapped some orange organza ribbon round it and foam padded it to the base.

Triple orange organza bow added, a bit of bling and the sentiment and I was good to go.

I have been lucky to have some new dies to play with as Mr D gave me some money to go to the NEC as my Christmas pressie (then bought me other bits to open on the day, naughty boy) but I only spent a quarter of it then so I have been prowling ebay for bargains and I think I'm up to about 15 sets (plus another two from Oyster that I'm waiting for) and I'm now down to my last few pounds. Need a complete crafting day now but you know how it goes, there is always something else clamouring for my attention (shopping, washing, housework etc).

Hope you all have a great day. Good luck at the Tearoom Patricia and Val, I'm sooo jealous.

  3. Hi Ang,
    a lovely bright card to brighten such a dull day here in Kent. You would be happy here as it has rained all night. Plenty of splashy stuff to paddle in. Anyone for puddle splashing. lol. I think I need some of these bright wellies that are in the shops. lol.I have a drip in my cavity of the wall in the bedroom, and it's drove me bonkers all night. We have had the roof peeps out 8 times and they still can't find where it's getting in.This also happened all over Christmas too.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  4. Good morning Ang,
    A beautiful, simple, bright card that brightens the dull day we have here.
    I love how you have done this and might have a little go later.
    Jenny has just reminded me I have some "bright" wellies better not wear them when I go for my walk later. Folk would see my "feet" behind the hedge.
    Have a great day

  7. This will really brighten someone's day! As you say much nicer than a scribbled note. My geraniums still have green leaves and one of my potted fuschia is still in flower too. I guess it is sheltered in the corner of the house and conservatory. Have a good day. Christine xx
