Good morning Duckadees. How's it hanging? Been busy at this end of The Pond again but hey ho. Does tend to cause bouts of Craftus Interruptus but a quick rub of The Striplet usually takes the edge off.
Hello to Lis who kindly left a comment on my last card. You are more than welcome to come and paddle anytime, there's room for plenty. In fact, thanks to you all for leaving such lovely comments. It really didn't take too long to punch out the flowers and Lesley, I hope the reply I left to your question made sense.
Welcome home Patricia. Sounds like The Pond is dryer than your hols. Hope that next months visit is better.
Ooh, before I forget, glad to see Sue (Snowqueen62) commenting on John's blog. I'm hoping that this means that her son is better. Sue, if you're reading, I'm sure I read, maybe on Sue Wilson's, that your son was in hospital? (I may be completely wrong, if so, shoot me now!) Hope all is now well.
Now, I should explain the strange title to today's post. Our John asked on his blog the other day, if pearls came in another colour and a few of us responded by saying we colour the white ones with various pens to have whatever colour we like. I also said, my next post would show a card with green ones.
Well, Blogger had other ideas and I can't upload the pics for that card at the moment. I tell you, Blogger has been a little minx lately, not letting me comment sometimes, deciding what pics I can upload. If Blogger had a wrist, I would slap it!!!
So today's card is different and if you're reading this John, the green pearls will hopefully feature next time.
We have been invited to a Diamond Wedding do in June and I needed to make an acceptance card. I could have sworn I had an acceptance stamp but could I find it? No!!! So I improvised and turned it into a "thank you for the invite" card.
I cut a piece of 300gsm Limetree Crafts white card the same width as the SB Tapestry die and twice the length. I Hougied the card in half then ran it through the GC with the Tapestry die (just the front of the card).
I then cut the embossing die from the SB Botanical Swirls and Accents set out of silver satin card and also one of the SB Fancy Tags from white card (onto which I heat embossed the sentiment in silver)
I wrapped some silver Mei Flower satin ribbon around the centre, keeping the join to the front as I stuck the silver die cut on top of the join and then stuck the sentiment on top of that. Bit of AB bling added here and there completed the look.
Simple but fitted the bill (well, actually, Bill and June as its their party lol!!!)
Hope you all have a lovely day. Sad one for me as its a cemetery visit for the anniversary of my Dad's passing. . . . . Don't know where the time goes or why it doesn't get any easier but what's a duck to do? I usually pop into the craft shop near there on my way home as it makes me stop blubbing and think about something else.
See you all soon and be good.
