Hello again bloggies!
Guess what I did today! I only spent 3 1/2 hours at mum’s!!! It was so nice not to rush down … and even nicer to get her settled for a nap … and leave this afternoon and be home before the kids!!! 😀 So … after putting some groceries away … I thought I would make a card! 😀 And … tonight … I plan to take my puter to bed … and do some blog hopping … to visit all my wonderful blog friends who have been popping by so faithfully to say hi … even though I haven’t been able to return the favour over the last few weeks. Anyway … enough rabbiting … I have a card for you … and this is inspired by the latest sketch challenge from the Paper Players (#60) …
So … what do you think of this pretty paper??? This is from the new “hostess ONLY” DSP in the new 2011/2012 catalogue! I love the colours and there are some really sweet designs for this “Cheerful Treat” DSP. I use the Framed Tulips embossing folder to emboss the edge … then I scrubbed over the embossing with my sanding block … to take some of the colour out so the embossing would stand out a little more! It’s a nice effect … don’t you think??? The silver pearls are a non SU! touch … and yes, Lynda … these are the ones you got me from Singapore!!! I am such a fan … and had a little stash sent to me by a friend in the US … that I was hoarding furiously … until Lynda managed to find some when she went to visit a friend in Singapore! Thanks hunny … for being such a lovely, obliging friend. It must have been such torture for you to go to the craft markets (twice) … just to look for these for me!!! 😉 Speaking of Lynda … look at the sweet little card she sent with the silver pearls. I just love getting happy mail like this!!!
And … just so Lynda can breathe more easily … and … because I always like to do the right thing … we would both like to acknowledge the original designer of this card … Trish Hughes. I know Lynda went searching for a blog … but wasn’t able to find Trish anywhere. I am happy to add a link if anyone knows who Trish is??? 😀
Well … off to organise tea … clean up my desk … and hopefully have an early night with my computer! My back is aching … and longing for a good rest. What better way to spend an evening! Hugs xxaxx
PS: WORDPRESS JUST LET ME KNOW THAT THIS IS MY 1,100TH POST! WOW!!! I do know how to rabbit on … don’t I!!! 😀 😛 xxx
