Good morning all. A quickish post today I'm afraid as I'm typing this at nearly 11.30pm to schedule and its time little ducks were in their nests. Been a busy day with work and allsorts but I didn't want to leave it another day to post.
Thank you for your concern. The inflammation could be a pull or virus but I'm dosing up on the anti inflammatories and not lifting heavy stuff at work. I was only taking the tabs before work but apparently I should be taking a full daily dose so they are fully in my system. Not sure how true this is but will give it a go.
Had some nice new lines in today at work, one of which called Santoro (its part of the Gorjuss collection) has some lovely papers and butterfly embellishments.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last card. I enjoyed making it, with all of its intricacies. Nice to have Val back in the pond after her trip to Egypt. Hope you had a super time chuck. Also hope that everyone is safe and dry with all this wind and rain. . . . . . weather for ducks? my doodahs!!! . . . . . this duck prefers it somewhat drier.
Now, today's card is another of my forays into the world of DL. I had a flick through one of my stack of Lidl card pads and this lovely minty piece grabbed my attention.
I was desperate to have a bash with my new HC Delicate Asters so I went a bit mad with them. Its a cream card base topped with a piece of mint Lidl card. I then cut 8 small pieces of cream card and inked around the edges of them with Peacock Feathers DI. These were foam padded to the base at equal distances apart.
I then cut a load of the asters, enough to make the 8 flowers.
I inked all the petal edges with Peacock Feathers too, then shaped and glued them together. The flowers were then glued to the centre of each square and a green gem added to each of the flower centres.
Sentiment from Aly's Inky Fingers (great stamps) stamped with Peacock Feathers.
I know the colour (or, in fact the entire card lol !!!) may not appeal to everyone but the sun was shining and the mint looked so fresh and Spring like. . . . . . . Spring, ahhhhhhhhh, please come soon!!!
Stay dry and safe folks even though the wind may be in your hair and bugs in your teeth!
