Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is well, warm and happy.
A sunny and breezy day expected so I shall hopefully have some washing out later. The last of the chillies and tomatoes have been plucked from their plants so I guess its really Autumn now.
Bizarrely, I mentioned our old friend Flash on my last visit. He has been fairly quiet of late, or I have missed any mularky but right on cue, he does something strange.
I think it must be Autumn as he appeared outside on Sunday morning sporting a rather fetching pair of burgundy tartan pyjamas (guessing it was the McFlash clan colours???). He took in a deep draught of the fresh morning air, with hands on hips, went back inside for about 5 seconds and re-emerged with what looked like a fish (mackerel sized) dangling between his finger and thumb which he then deposited in his wheely bin.
It takes allsorts eh?
Now, today I have another card from John's shows last week, using the Doodle Rose Wreath die.
Ivory, black, wisteria and amethyst Foundation card
Sue Wilson Doodle Rose Wreath die
CE Swirling Hearts embossing folder
John Lockwood Fern Frame Elements sentiment
Mei Flower black satin ribbon
I made the pattern shape by cutting a square out of the amethyst card and then cutting each corner of the square with part of the Doodle Rose Wreath. I then backed it with ivory card and cut out the extra ivory bits in the corners with the centre die from the set.
Suzzie, I hadn't got this die on my radar until John gave it to me but it is more versatile than you would first think.
I love a bit of lilac/purple action and I know that there's a few of you ladies do too.
Thank you again for your best wishes. The virus hasn't emerged as anything like a cough or sickness etc, just obviously lurked beneath and did its deed on the heart.
Marion, apparantly is very common and affects folk differently so I hope you don't suffer too much with yours.
Jacquie, always try and keep my chin up but these days its a choice of which one (chin) lol!!!
Jan from Northampton, congratulations on the arrival of your new Granddaughter. . . . . you'll need those baby sets now lol, but I bet there's some beautiful lace that's been made for an outfit?
Anyhoo, that's me for today. I'm scheduling and my dumplings need attention . . . . . .stew, ladies, stew lol!!!
