Love. . . . . . .

Good morning my blogging buddies. Hope you're healthy and happy. Gosh, isn't this month just scooting by? Its nearly that one day per year that we are contractually obliged to be nice to our other halves hahaha.
The charity shop I volunteer at is going to be running a jewellery promotion in anticipation of folk looking for a nice piece for the lady/chap in their life. I am doing some heart shaped card bunting to decorate the counter area and display cabinet and also a few cards for them to sell.
Nothing too involved, just quick and hopefully decent cards so that my manager can sell them at a reasonable price ( I think she feels guilty if I do anything too fancy as she feels she should charge more for them but its difficult to charge a lot in a charity shop)
A warm welcome to Cornelia, one of my HOC team mates. Lovely to have you jump into the pond.
Loved reading all of your birdie tales. Kate, Fat Bird was a baby blackbird. I have a video of its dad flying to the bird table after I whistled him. I will try and figure out how to download it.

Now, today's card is one of my quickies for the shop. Its another DL base in white. I won't go into detail about its construction as you can see what's what but the ingredients are,

SB Tapestry die
X-Cut Alphabet die
Pink PMD card
White organza ribbon
White satin ribbon
John's Chinese Pearls

Simple, but pretty I hope.

Donna, good news, sort of, about the foot. here's to speedy healing. Hope everybody has a super week and lets be careful out there. Nesta is off to Scarborough with her sister so I'm hoping for a quiet few days lol!

  7. Hi Ang,

    Love your card. The way you have put LOVE at the end is pure inspiration. The charity shop in my home town charge £1.99 for home made cards. Worth every penny!!!

Gosh you make me laugh with your comments on my blog, morning here and your words are always so cheery, you and I are similar, I am a right ol 'nut' on real life and love the energy that flows from yu...sorry the only pool you have is the rotten puddle, even our winter is warm where I live...up north of Australia...We swim until around April then stop until around end of Sept or come on down and visit me..we could have a right ol nag together. Catcha lata...xx

  17. I like this, that die cut panel is stunning and such lovely colours. As Aussie Annie says your blog writings are a good giggle for all of us to read so thank you and thank you for the lovely comments you have been leaving on my blog x

  18. Hi Ang,
    what a very lovely card. Love your design of this.
    Not been about much as my DH was taken into hospital the other day. He is home now thankfully, but it is scary when you have to call and ambulance to them.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  19. Gorgeous! Are you the nice lady - so generous and fun to boot!
