Good morning friends, Romans, crafters. Hope that you're not snowed in, flooded out or blown into another post code.
What weather eh?
Sorry for my absence but extra days at work and the funeral have occupied my time of late.
Thank you for your kind wishes. The friend who had passed was a lovely lady called Emma who had reached the grand age of 91 and was but a few days short of 92. Her husband is bereft, bless him as he was absolutely devoted to her............and I mean absolutely devoted.
She had been suffering for the past few years so whatever your personal take on things, I hope that she is now in a better and happier place.
Now, back to happier things. Today's card is another I made for John's last shows to showcase the Bevelled Glass Striplet.
I cut it across the bottom of a 6x6 card blank I made and sponged some Dusty Concord DI over it. I then I cut another panel in cream to pop over over the top, slightly offset to give a shadow effect. Centre panel cut out of both to create the aperture for the roses.

It was one of those happy occasions when a card turns out how you wanted it.
I had a go at a tissue box cover last week as Nesta had come down with something nasty with a hacking cough (I think she had been at the St Bruno) and a nose that would give Rudolph a run for his money. I had a new cube box of tissues so I made her a cover for it to match her bedding and took that round with a pot chrysanthemum and some Tadka Dal (spiced lentils) for her tea. I knocked the door and retreated to a safe distance for her to pick them up off the doorstep. Gawd bless her, she did look as rough as a bears behind so I stepped back a few more paces and declined the offer to pop inside.
I'll show you the cover shortly and don't worry, there's no photos of Nesta clutching it.
Sandra you are more than welcome and thank you for visiting again. Lovely to see Sam back too and thank you for your kind comments, and to all of you lovely folk that spend your precious time popping by.
Val, I saw your comment on John's about the op and hope you are recovering well.
Well that's me for today folks. At work again, then a couple of days off, hurrah!.........to do shopping and housework boo hiss!
