Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well?
I must apologise for my absence from Blogland. I did manage to meet up with John armed with his pressies and card and to get to the GBCF at Stoneleigh on the1st and met up with the lovely Christine. I stayed from 10 til around 1.30, an hour of which was sitting chatting and munching with Christine.
It was quiet and I knew I had done enough so that's why I headed home early. I only spent about £20, mostly on card (and a naughty First Edition pad, bad girl!!!).
In the evening, I started sniffing etc so I knew I had caught Mr D's cold. Unfortunately, its turned into a viral infection which has, so far, resulted in 2 trips into hospital in the past 10 days as its had an effect on my heart rate and rhythm. As its a virus, there's nothing they can give me so I basically have to rest, keep hydrated and ride out the storm, fuelled by Ribena for Vitamin C.
So forgive me chaps, but I've just not been up to blogging or visiting - Maureen, I'm so sorry if I worried you.
I'm still not feeling great but thought I should post something in a moment of ok-ness as I don't want you all forgetting me lol!!! I will try and catch up with your blogs as best I can during the next few days as sadly, it may take some time to shift this virus.
This was a card requested by Nesta (who has been extra fab during the last 10 days) as her sisters in laws were celebrating their Golden Wedding back in August (yes, I'm a bit behind lol!!!)
Cream, vintage gold and gold mirror card
SB Bitty Blossoms (yes, I know, but I love them lol!!!)
SB Grand and Classic Ovals
SB Butterfly Circles (just for the gold butterflies)
Sue Wilson Maidenhair Fern die
Sue Wilson Catkin Stems dies
Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder
Habico sentiment stamps
CS Gold Detail embossing powder
CS Golden Pearl PVA pearls
Gold Krylon Pen
In case you had noticed, yes I have embossed the Maidenhair Fern die cuts through a floral embossing folder as I thought they looked a little flat as is and needed a bit of texture.
Apparently, the card was well received so happy days.
Well, I'll slope off back under my blanket to my hot Ribena and hope that you all have a lovely week. Thank you for your continued kind comments and good wishes.
Ps. Wendy (Yorks Butterfly) the GP result was fine by me, as was this weeks, as I am not a Lewis Hamilton fan (Jenson Baby for me from the British drivers) and I am hoping Nico wins the WDC. . . . . . not very patriotic of me is it lol!!!
