Good morning all you lovely folk. Hope you are well
The wrist is much better but still not quite right so still having to be careful. This has made doing a few tasks rather interesting. Mr D has tried to help as much as possible but there are certain things you just have to do yourself hahaha!!!
I do apologise for delays in commenting on your blogs. This is down to Blogger being a bit of a pain (some of you it will only let me comment from my phone at the moment, which has been a bit tricksy at times with the wrist situation) and obviously trying to hold a tablet and type.
I'm at work today and tomorrow but then have 3 days off, hurrah, so what I don't catch up in the next couple of days, I will when I'm off so I will be with you soon.
Its lucky that I had made these samples for John's shows or I would have probably run out of things to show you by now.
I've had a wedding card to do by this week and was worried that it may result in yet another shop bought card as trying to crank my GC with my other hand was not great. Mr D kindly stepped in and I did the lining up and taping and he did the cranking.
I'm about 95% happy with it so it will do.
Now, today's card is another that was featured on John's C&C stamping show, launching his brilliant new stamps. I love the sentiment on this and I believe it was purloined from Dean Wilson.
Soft gold card
John Lockwood Rosebud Elements Stamps
Sissix Square die
Black Archival ink
Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder
Black satin ribbon
Score line embossing done on the Hougie Board
I only heat embossed the centre panel; the leaves are just stamped to provide a contrast.
There is only a couple more of the C&C samples left to show now but I had made a couple of other cards with these fabulous stamps and I will carry on using them.
Meeting Nesta on Thursday for lunch as she has returned from her holiday in sunny and very hot Spain. I hope she hasn't sunburnt her castanets because I'm not rubbing calamine on them lol!!!
Hope you all have a great week.
