Good morning my little Duckadees. Hope you're all full of the joys of Spring. Its been warming up in this bit of The Pond and we have been treated to some glorious sunshine. This is a picture heavy post towards the end, I'm afraid, as I wanted to share a bit of my Spring with you all.
Apologies for the delay since my last post. Mr Duck has been a very naughty boy! I let him loose on my laptop the other day and he pressed things he shouldn't have and somehow ended up installing the horrendous Internet Explorer 8 and altering all my Google and Gmail settings. Consequently, I have spent some time having to sort all this out.
I had a little chat with him on the lines of "silly Mr Duck, don't mess with technology, especially mine" or something similar, I forget the exact phrases I used, ahem!
Anyhoo, more importantly, welcome back Maggie. Oh its so nice to see you commenting again and you are more than welcome to come and paddle whenever you like chuck. Hope sunnier days are just around the corner.
Now, today's card is a nice flat one as its for a friend's birthday next month and needs to be posted. As the Post Office are putting the postage up again (I thought robbery was still a crime in this country) its more of a consideration now.
Its an A5 cream card base matted and layered with black and lilac PMD card. I went down the black layer route as John had done it on a card recently (I think it was John) and it really made a difference.
I cut another layer in the cream card and out of this I cut the flourish from SB Fanciful Holiday on each side and 3 SB Medallion One from the centre. Sentiment heat embossed in lilac embossing powder (25p bargain from work) and a bit of bling.
All layers stuck together flat (no foam pads at all) and voila, simple but quite pretty if I may say so.
Now, for a few Spring pics from my garden. Sorry, there's a few. . . . .
|Some of our geraniums, still alive from last Summer|
|Our beautifully scented Daphne|
|One of our pretty Bergenia's|
|And the epitome of Spring to me. . . . . .|
|The gorgeous Daffodil, sunshine on a stem!!!|
Hope that you all haven't nodded off hahaha. If you made it this far, thank you and see you soon.
