Good morning dear blogging chums. Hope everyone is as well as can be.
I'm pretty much over my poxation. Still got a bit of a cough from the ones that got on my chest and still having a daily touch up (steady !!!) with concealer, though not with a trowel now.
Been doing extra days at work as my boss has been covering another shop so I shall be enjoying a day off today.
Now before I chunter on about me card, a warm welcome to Wendy Atkinson and thank you for following us in The Pond and in celebration of reaching over 100 followers I am going to be sending one lovely follower, what I call a Paddle Prize.
All I ask is that you are a follower and that you kindly leave a comment on this post by 21st June 12 noon BST if you want your name to go in the hat (well, bowl really). Then, the handsome Mr D will pull a name and I shall pop a thank you gift in the post.
Today's card is the last of my cards that I made as samples for John Lockwood's Create and Craft shows (well, actually, there is one more but it didn't make it on the show)
I used the large square frame stamp from John's Cherry Blossom Elements set and stamped it in black archival ink on ivory card. I then lined up the oval die, from the SB Filigree Delight set, to cut out a nice portion of the stamped flowers. I then dotted each flower centre with black PVA pearls (and the "i" of With)
SB Filigree Delight die set
John Lockwood's Cherry Blossom Elements stamps (flowers and sentiment)
Black Archival ink
Black satin ribbon
Cosmic Shimmer Black PVA Pearls
Hougie Board (to score the lines within which the ribbon sits)
I think that this one has an oriental feel to it, even though it is quite CAS (well, for me hahaha!!!)
Before I leave you to enjoy your Monday, I would like to thank everyone for your much appreciated support of my little patch of Blogland. It would be very boring paddling without you all.
Hope this week brings you all health and happiness.
Ps. . . . . For those ladies who asked how I did a circular sentiment on my computer for my last card, I have Microsoft Works on my laptop that has a feature called "Word Art" within the word processor. This allows you to make your text different shapes.
