Good morning everyone. I'm hoping we haven't seen the last of Summer with these downpours that are forecast. Its Nesta's 60th birthday tomorrow (and no she won't thank me for telling you that) and I am taking her out for the day. May have to revert to Plan B if its going to be wet (not sure what Plan B is yet either lol!!!)
Firstly, a warm welcome to Mary Ellen, follower number 49. Hope you will stop by again and please leave a comment if you have time as its nice to here from you all. Also, "hi" to Pamellia and thank you for your comment. Pamellia has a blog and makes some gorgeous cards.
Well, didn't I have a crisis on Tuesday. Got up early as I had a sympathy card to make and get in the post but could I find my bloomin pokey tool? Could I eck!!!
I had drawers out, boxes out, stuff off shelves and went through my bin with a fine tooth comb (not pleasant when I discovered Mr D had been throwing his ear cleaning cotton buds in there rather than the bathroom bin eeewww!!! and no, he won't be doing that again!!!)
I didn't realise how much I use it until I couldn't find it. A new one had to be bought. Luckily, we had a new delivery of them at work a couple of days before so off I went, to get a new one.
Then, yesterday morning, I decided to clean the blinds in my craft room, which are in front of one of the desks, when what do I find? Yep, you guessed it. . . . . . . . Lord Lucan and Shergar! Lol, only joshing, they weren't that dusty hahaha!!!
Mrs Pokey had obviously rolled off the desk at some point and wrapped herself around one of the cords.
So now, I have 2 to lose in future.
Now, today's card is one I made for my sister's birthday in June. I seem to remember someone (possibly John) had done one similarish with cut out hexagons at the time so I held this back.
A5 sized white card base
Pink PMD card
First Edition Love Letters 6x6 pad
Pink pigment ink
Sort of CAS. I'm trying to get over my fear of too much white space on cards. I have done a couple recently where I have had to restrain myself from filling a gap.
Well, whatever you are up to today folks, hope you have fun and sun.
Be good and hold onto those pesky pokeys!
