Sending Love

Hello....
It's been quite a while since I posted... Just dealing with a few things, my Aunt's estate, hospital appointments as well as a few up and down days...

I spent some time making projects for the Thursday club, though I haven't been able to attend at all this year, and Pat has covered for me, it seems only right that I try and make a few projects to help her along.
Then with my down days caused by a fair amount of pain, inspiration left me.

I did want to try the faux enamel technique using just embossing powders and finally I gave it a go and had fun... Here's a card I made today with feathers cut from one of the pieces I did


I discovered that not all embossing powders work the same and things can get quite messy but I loved the look, especially when the light catches it


Funny how you don't even see the gold from this angle


The love stamp is one of a set sent to me by my dear friend Rebecca and I think it was all that was needed along with a few paint splatters

I hope you are having a good week, sending love

CAS Watercolour Challenge

Good morning... 
I have a card I did for The CAS watercolour Challenge to share...


Using smooshed distress inks


And a very old TH stamp. I really like these colours together - Peeled Paint and Faded Jeans


I'm just not sure that it's CAS enough, but you know what it's like with smooshing, you kinda get carried away 



 It's wet and miserable outside, hubby is off to the match this afternoon and Ginger cat is in favour of curling up on the sofa... Maybe not a bad idea.
Have yourselves a great weekend
Till soon

The Other Half

Hi there...

I've been racking my brains trying to come up with a card for hubby's birthday next week ... 
Being as he loves golf and football, the cards he usually gets tend to feature either one of these so I always do something different, and this is definitely different!

I decided to use the other half of the doll stamp that I used in my previous post


And I couldn't leave Ginger cat out could I? Lol! 


I just know he will love this card and it's not as boring as a golf card is it

 
Now if only I had legs as long and slim as that ...sigh

My crafting head is slowly coming together again, the problem is that I can't lift, stretch or bend and in my craft room not at lot is at eye level, but I'm getting there.

Enjoy your day 

Hugs

Birthday Girl

Good Morning and welcome to February!

I know I'm a little late, I'm still trying to taking things easy but I get impatient. Some days I feel I've taken one step forward and 2 steps back...
 I managed a little crafting with Pat last week and I've done nothing since. Between you and me, hubby took charge of my meds... I wrote out a chart for him so he knew what I had to take and when, but he gave me the wrong tablets a few times and it didn't help I can tell you....

I need a couple of birthday cards this month, one for hubby and one for my SIL but so far I have only done my SIL's card


I used a Julie Nutting Doll stamp gifted to me by my lovely friend Diane a few years ago, coloured her with copics and cut her out... I also stamped her tiara and bow onto glitter card and added them separately


The doll stamps are quite big so I only used part of the stamp and added some ink blending and splatters to the BG. I though a few balloons would be fun, like she was holding them behind her so again I used my inks to blend onto vellum before die cutting the balloons


...And I used a left over piece of the vellum to stamp my sentiment on. 
My SIL loves red dresses so I hope she will like this

I hope you are all keeping well, it's still a struggle to sit for any length of time at the computer but I hope to get around to visiting you all soon...

Have a beautiful day

Sympathy Card


Hello...
Well it seems my package (yesterday's post) was from a dear blog friend and I am so sad that it got trashed... At least I know now and quite honestly, I somehow wished I didn't know what happened to it... sigh
But on to something else...

I'm not quite back into crafting, seems even the Big Shot is an effort to move and I'm struggling to recall where some things are... I hope that passes soon. Anyway, sadly I had to put together a card for a friend of my husband's from his golf club. Such a sweet guy, and sadly his son took his own life a few days ago. Such a terrible tragedy and there are no words of comfort I can offer but at least I can send a card


A BG image stamped in iced spruce distress ink and my faithful sprigs die


One of the sprigs was cut from a piece of CS that I smooshed with Versaark and then sprinkled on my mix of silver and gold EB powder and heat set. I also smooshed a strip with Iced Spruced distress ink to stamp and emboss the sentiment


Till soon my friends... Be safe

An Unusual Request

Good afternoon everyone...
 
This is quite an unusual request but I need your help... As you know I have received many cards and gifts over the past few weeks for both my birthday and following my operation.
Today it came to light that last week our mail man put a package for me in our bin as he didn't get an answer from our door. A strange thing as we were all in the house and even so, we have a postbox on the side of our house.
Well, the thing is , the bin collectors came that same morning and the package would have been  taken away with the trash... 
As none of us had ordered anything, or were expecting a delivery, we can only guess that someone sent me a package as a surprise so I am checking to see if any of you lovely blog friends did send something that I haven't as yet acknowledged? 
I'm so upset that this happened but I would be really grateful is any of you sent something and could email me or contact me to let me know....
 
Many thanks
