Hi friends!.........well I never made it back last week did I?.....sorry..........I was auditioning for Rudolph!.....no silly not prancing around, couldn't do that to save my life!........in the red nose stakes....aah now you've got it..yes?......sporting a very sore red nose due to a cold virus that decided I looked such a nice place to be a host. Still full of it(the cold) but feeling better and the nose looks more like its been on a sunbed without the rest of my face now!(it's at the peeling stage)...........sorry you didn't really need to know all that........... hey ho...onward and upward as they say.
So did you all have a good weekend then?..any crafting?......popping round blog land you all seem to have been busy...doesn't ease my guilt when I see you all playing you know.It just really serves to actually remind me how much Christmas stuff I have that is still unused!
I do however have a card to share with you......here it is.............and it's not a Christmas one!
This is a die I bought a while back in a sale and have never used so I decided to air it and cut it on a scrap of pearlescent card from the bit box, then I mounted it on the same card (another piece from the bit box) which I cut with pierced squares...the double ones by sue Wilson (really like them). Then I cut it again from another scrap of white card and cut out the butterflies with a craft knife, inked them with a pearl ink and mounted over the top of the same butterflies in the die.....added the pearls and the sentiment..(.Diesire die) then mounted the whole thing on 3D foam on my base card.
There we have it. My only problem is the red bits you can see...........funny the camera does not pick up the lovely sheen to the card, but picks up the red bits from the die....the die itself is red(can't remember the make.........so next time I must remember to use some waxed paper and hopefully avoid that.
Right I had better prance off to the craft room and see if I can squeeze some inspiration from my soggy mind. I do hope you are all well and not going through the tissues at the same rate as me!
Hubby has a day off tomorrow for my Birthday so we can go out............then he works on his Birthday next week because he has no holiday left...aaaahhhhhh...love him. After the birthdays are over we can think Christmas!
Take care my friends and I may see you in the playground this week with this one (if I get there). Might blow the cobwebs away!
See you later and thank you so much for calling in and saying hi...it is so very much appreciated...big hugs to you all..........careful don't catch the cold!
Oh nearly forgot to tell you that the washer got fixed, a day later than said...engineer was ill...perhaps he too had the cold?......no he would have had the flu!
Love Carole xx
