Good morning folks and happy bank holiday!
I am still incapacitated as the ankle is no better and upon returning to my GP was referred straight to the hospital for x-rays. Hopefully, will get the results this week but still at home in the meantime.
I have ditched one of the crutches as I'm convinced I would have done myself another injury if I kept using two. All I need now is an eye patch and a parrot!!!
When I was seeing Nesta off (in the nicest possible way) the other day, I put one crutch down but missed the paving and the end lurched into the flowerbed below, causing me to loose my balance and pitch me into the hedge!!!
As I did, I raised my arm in the air so Nesta just thought I was waving, waved back and drove off!!!
I ended up looking like Veronica Crabtree from South Park.
Now, you can see I've been playing with blue and white again but this time for a boy who has reached 87. Les is one of our good friends who still plays golf and is fitter than me (even without my current impediment) and his birthday was just over a week ago. I thought I'd do another 3D card and even though it was hand delivered, it does fold flat.
White hammered card (PMD)
Shades of blue card
Sue Wilson Bevelled Glass Striplet
SB Fancy Tags 3
Presscut Rectangle dies
John Lockwood Cherry Blossom Elements sentiment
Quite a small list of ingredients and a simple card but still effective, I hope. Les was quite taken with the 3D aspect, bless him.
I didn't want the sentiment recessed too far, which is why I made the middle layer rather than sticking it to the back piece.
Thank you all for your continued kind comments and best wishes. I have managed to get some crafting done which is just as well as I had/have golden wedding, silver wedding, 1st anniversary, 3 70th birthdays, 50th birthday, 18th birthday and 2 normal birthdays all in the space of a month!!!
Now to finish, a couple of gratuitous orchid snaps. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Don't forget, John Lockwood is back on Hochanda tonight and tomorrow.
