Good morning my blogging chums. Hope all is well with you.
I shall be winging my way to the NEC this morning, hopefully, as I've been suffering from the mother of all colds. Christine Harrop is coming up and The Scottish Posse are flying down (I hope I don't give em a little extra something to take home with them or they won't be best pleased with me. . . . . . . .still, I like to share, even germs lol!!!
Shall meet Christine for a cuppa during the show, then we shall meet the girlies (and Nesta is coming too) for a meal in the evening at the local Harvester. So, if you're in Sheldon around 6pm. . . . . . .I would stay well away, hahaha!!!
Thank you to you and my HoC team mates for your lovely comments last time out; it does warm the cockles! (and ones cockles do need lots of warming at this time of year, lol!!!)
Now, today's card is bright, I know but that's what Diwali is all about. This is the card I made for Nesta and once again I went to my First Edition pads (I do have an unhealthy obsession with them and I know Hazel is not far behind lol!!!).
It had to be the Neroli as it really has an indian influence with the mandala style flowers and paisley patterns. I used the 8x8 and 6x6 pads for this one. These particular sheets have a lovely sheen and the red on them is shiny, hence my teaming the layers with red mirror card.
Have been playing with some different style bows lately too, so this is one of my efforts. . . . .
White card base
Red mirror card
SB Classic Diamonds
SB Blossom die (for the centre)
First Edition Neroli 8x8 and 6x6 pads
Red satin ribbon
I know that it won't be everyone's cup of Darjeeling but I think it was suitable for the occasion and Nesta loved it (mind you, she is easily pleased lol!!!).
Well, wish me luck around the NEC. First stop will be Inkylicious for Silver and Copper Krylon pens to come and live with their Gold friend (sorry, Pamellia, the addiction has taken hold again) and some of their lovely stamps.
Have a great day whatever you are up to and be good.
