Two in a day??? Not like me....

Hi all

Yes... I'm here again ... twice in the same day, not like me at all!!  I'm just popping by to show you this quick and easy card (and it's a just for fun one which is nice!).  I saw a card similar to this on Pinterest pinned by my good friend Sylvia... the original card was pinned and made by Loll.  This is my take on it - which I thought you may like to see.  I am still playing with my SU goodies that I bought a little while ago through Sylvia... and this little embossing frame is so useful, I think I'll use it over and over.
I decided to put my flowers actually in the frame itself... with the sentiment lower down..  I also embossed the base of the card with dots, and added a grosgrain ribbon bow.  I think I went a little two heavy handed with the centre of the flowers - next time I think I will either use little pearls or gems in a toning colour.

Materials:
  • Stampin Up Textured Impressions Frames Embossing Folder
  • Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder
  • Martha Stewart Hydrangea Punch (hoping they look a bit like violets!)
  • Martha Stewart Leaf Punch
  • Stampin Up Word Window Punch
  • Sentiment - Pink Petticoat
  • Grosgrain Ribbon from stash
The whole card took me about 10 -15 mins in total... from looking at a plain sheet of white card!  I already had the sentiment (and lots of others) printed out, so didn't even have to run downstairs to the printer!  Anyway, hope you like!

We went to the fab Berwick Kayler panto in York with Emma last night... a bit of a tradition.. but came out of the theatre to find the deep snow!!  So Emma left us at the theatre and disappeared off to get her car and bring it to the entrance...  then took us back to her flat (at 10 mph) and made sure we stayed there overnight ... in her bed, while she slept on a camp bed in the lounge!  She even made me a hottie bottle!!  Soooooo  this is one of the nice things about getting older....  you get to be the one being looked after!!

Hope you're all keeping warm and dry..
Big hugs

    Yes it is strange to be looked after but doesn't it seem weird, when I used to go shopping with the girls it was me who carried all the bags, now it's them.

    PS - I'm eagerly awaiting getting old (or older!) so that Emily can take care of me - she probably won't though!!
