Heartfelt Wishes . . . . . . . . .


Good morning my little duckadees. Hope all is well with you and yours. Apologies for my few days away but real life took over a bit.
The fish and chips were very nice and the company and conversation even better!!! I always thought fish and chips were a healthy option. . . . . .fish is supposed to be good for you and chips are veg so doesn't that count as one of your 5 per day ?

Welcome to Sue (http://olliesmam.blogspot.co.uk) who has kindly become a follower. I shall pop over and have a peek at your blog when I get some time today. Also, thank you to Bibiana for your comment. I shall pop over to visit you too.

Sandy, Christine's farmer neighbour lost his herd of cows. . . . .to think I worry when I mislay my pen lol !!!
Christine, fingers crossed the cows don't go on the moooooove and find an udder way out of the field. . . . . . . . .sorry, couldn't resist.
Sue (Snowqueen62), I've never used the wax paper, though I hear its handy for doing stamping on candles too. On my intricate dies, I rub them with a tumble dryer sheet (cost about 99p for 20 sheets and I keep them in an airtight container) and they pop straight out. I'm only on my second sheet after 12 months and they smell lovely.
Val, glad that shoulder is bearing up but go steady, your craft room needs you!!!

Now, today's card is a variation on another card I have made but haven't shown yet (will do shortly). The base card is an A4 piece of blue card from Limetree Crafts, Hougied in half to A5. This was layered with a smaller piece of lime green PMD card. I then added another blue layer. The top layer is more lime green card, inked with Shabby Shutters, Mustard seed and Peacock Feathers distress ink and stamped with a Hobbycraft butterfly stamp and heat embossed with Stampendous White EP (did the double embossing technique as per here).
I then cut a heart with a Sissix die out of the top, stamped my sentiment and heat embossed in white, then cut it out using the 2nd smallest SB Butterflies Circles die. I then "coloured" this with a Versamark pen and heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer clear EP to give it a glossy effect.
Three pieces of white organza ribbon wrapped around and then sentiment foam padded on top.
I foam padded this layer to the card and then added a white SB Les Papillion that I had knocking about, to the centre of the heart and that was that.


Well, here we are at the start of another week and nearly a new month. It's scary how time flies (even if you're not having fun hahaha!!!).
Hope you all have a great week.

TTFN

  4. Hi Ang, wonderful colourful card with gorgeous dies, love how you've designed it too.
    strangely enough, if you are a diabetic doing low carbs fish and chips is not too bad, as long as there ia no batter on the fish, some breadcrumbs are OK, and a few properly fried chips in good old dripping. I know it defies perceived knowledge, but it's true. Having diabetes must have some perks don't you think, have a good day, hugs Kate X

  5. Good morning Ang, wow this nearly jumped out of the screen at me, very bright and cheery though I must confess not a choice of colours for me but that's what makes crafting so interesting, isn't it. Best wishes Jackie

  7. Hi Ang,
    what a fabulous colour card, so rich looking. I do love these colours together.

  8. Hi Ang. Love todays card. The background is beautiful and I really like the technique you've used and also the vibrant colours. Very clever.
    Glad you had a good fish and chop outing. Being "good for me" is always my excuse for eating chocolate every day. It's supposed to be full of milk (it says that in the advert so it must be true) and milk contains calcium which is good for the bones. So stands to reason, to have healthy bones, eat more chocolate!

    It's my crib afternoon today which I really enjoy. Have a good day whatever you're doing.

    Love Val x

  14. Dear Mrs Duck (Ang)
    I love the colors on this card. I really like how you did the ribbon too. Living in the land locked state of Colorado I rarely find good fish and chips but I do love them when I can find a place that knows how to make them right. I need another trip across the pond to get some really good ones! Have a great day.
