Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is doing fine.
Apologies if I made you concerned with my last post. It was just a jippy tum caused by very painful trapped wind. I didn't expand (except my tum) on it at the time as I didn't think that you would want all the gorey details and, the main reason, I thought it would give Maureen some real comedy material to work with lol!!!
A busy few days here with eye clinic (I now have ocular hypertension but no glaucoma, thankfully, and eye drops) having to do a last minute request for a baby shower card and gift box, updating my website with new goodies and my birthday.
Had some lovely cards (thank you folks) and fabulous presents and would you believe, not one crafty pressie lol!!!
Mr D took me took me out for the day and I got treated to lunch. I even had a card and pressie from The Girls...........so clever of them and such neat paw writing lol!!!
Now, thank you for your lovely comments about my samples for John, Here is another where I actually used the bird cage as a bird cage!!!
White, pink, black and vintage gold card
First Edition Bird Song paper
JND Birds and Cages dies
JND Chain die
JND Bee Balm Frame (tag die)
Diamante chain bling (available on my website)
Gold Krylon pen
To give the cage dimension, I cut the die out 10 times in vintage gold card and snipped out the innards and glued all of these together with a top layer of the complete cage. I had coloured the top layer with my Gold Krylon pen to give it a gilded look.
The design was supposed to look like a wall with blown vinyl and patterned paper separated by a border and the bird cage hanging in front of it................not sure if I achieved that lol!!!
Well, that's me for now except to say, thank you Mr Lockwood for my splendid birthday cake..............
It managed to survive being up ended by Lily off the worktop, still in its box thankfully, and is delicious!!!
Have a great week folks.
Ps.......Karen, there is a tutorial for the fuchsias at the top of the blog.
