Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is fandabydozey (apologies for that Krankies moment).
A huge welcome to Dana Joy, Judith, Sue B and Hazel (Didos). Thank you ladies for coming for a paddle. Its lovely to have you visit and I shall pop by to visit you soon.
Anyhoo, yes, today is my beloved Mr Duck's birthday. I won't say how old to spare his blushes lol!!! I used to laugh at the expression "soulmate" but he really is mine (You are all either going "Ahhhh" or sticking your fingers down your throat aren't you???!!!???)
We were going to go away for a few days. I had booked time off round my shifts and all was good until this weekend when, by text message, I'm informed that my shifts have changed, yet again, from this week (I think that's 6 times now in the last few weeks!!!). . . . . . . . what about my leave and us going away? Tough, apparently!!!
Mr D wants me to quit and I'm very tempted. We are so angry and upset but enough of that as its been the source of sadness for the last couple of days (hence the gap in my blog posts) and today should be happy.
Those who have been paddling for a while may remember that Mr D's favourite colour is red so, I try and make it the main colour theme on his cards.
Now, this is tri-fold card made from a whole sheet of A3 card.
And yes, it wasn't until afterwards that I realised I would have to make an envelope to fit lol!!!
A3 sheet white card (Lime Tree Crafts)
Red PMD card
Sue Wilson Bevelled Glass Striplet
X-Cut Alphabet die
CE sentiment stamp
Black satin ribbon
I cut the front aperture with my GC by doing all the folds to make it fit, then adding a layer of card between the top and middle layer. This meant that the front cut completely, and the middle and bottom layers had a nice embossed rectangle on each, which helped frame the lettering and sentiment (Hope that makes sense).
Mr D has given me his blessing to put this on at a time where some of you will be seeing this before him. Hope that he and you like it. You all know how tricksy fellas cards can be.
We shall hopefully have a nice day together, off to buy a new wedding ring for Mr D (that's another tale of woe to add to the expanding list we've had recently).
Before I pootle off, a little announcement. You may have noticed a new addition to my sidebar. I am really flattered to have been invited to join the DT at Moving Along With The Times. I shall be officially starting from January so look forward to new challenges and fun. Would be lovely to see some of you joining in too.
Hope you all have a good day. Thank you, as always, for the time you take to leave your much appreciated comments.
