Wet Day

Well it been a very wet day,but I dont mind one bit has I have not been out

Been far to busy with the chores,and laundry. The pictures above are the Birthday Card I made for Vicki a dear friend @ KT Crafts,I never get over the beautiful work Vicki churns out and I have never seen a piece I have not loved so her card had to be Special The Card is pink & black Cardstock

feathers I twisted with flowers and then attached the seed pearls to front
and made a little insole using my paint programme for the message but then I thought oh I will add an heel which I did and put pearls around bottom. The Shoe Box I made from plain white Cardstock and sprayed with Glimmer Mist and this gave a nice look, The box is just a freehand job

Its hard explaining how I make them but in general I take 3mm off each side to allow for top and Bottom and roughly make a little indent for the size off my object to be boxed and score all round leaving a little space for the item and the same for the bottom and normally get a good tight fit

Well Iam feeling pretty jaded my little terror has been baking today[I promised] so cupcakes and double choco cookies were made and I had all the mess to clean up. Now I know how my mother felt all them years ago out of 3 sisters I was the only one to love cooking and baking and when I got older my mother just let me do it all in the end,she said there was no point competing with me

Rose, this is absolutely awesome, Girl! Boy, you sure are creative!

Thank you so much for mentioning me and my surgery on your blog; I am having the other eye done on Wednesday and so far so good on the one that was done this last week. I can't get over how bright and colorful the world is now....I did not realize that I was walking around in a "fog" since I have had these cataracts forming for years.

I love your sketch....I am going to work on making a card from it. It will be slow but I will get it done. You kept it nice and simple for someone like me and I thank you!

You are a very special person to me, Rose!
