Just to Say.......

Well today has been really sunny, I took the dogs to Aberdour Beach for a run around, they love the sand but not the water, dipping their toes in is about as much as they do. Now we have a frosty night, nice clear sky with lots of stars.  Just had the dogs for a short walk (they have just had a haircut and feeling chilly) and boy I can feel the cold in the air.  Winter has come really early this year, the central heating has been on, mainly for my mother who lives with me, as she feels it most, but I must admit I am cold tonight.
This card was again inspired by Sue Wilson (Particraft., I must admit I just love her cards and her Spellbinder Dies. 

Ingredients for this are

Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Black, Coconut White and Taupe.
The floral background was just a piece of card in my box
Spellbinders Lattice Motifs and Accents (designed by Sue Wilson)
Sentiment and pearls from my stash

I think the way the card has been offset really make it interesting.  I have tried it a few different colours but failed to take photographs as I did not think I would get into Blogging.  Now I am everything gets snapped.  As my husband says if it does not move it gets a picture taken.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know over the last few days I have been run of my feet but hopefully tomorrow I will be able to get down to some serious crafting as I have my stocks to replenish. My niece who is over from Spain and who runs a Bar/Restaurant in Benidorm has asked to take a load of cards back with her to sell in the Bar, as a lot of Ex Patts partake of a tipple there.  She thinks she will have a ready market for them.  Also I have my new A4 Embossing folder to play with  and the Marvelous Squares and Resplendent Rectangles which arrived on Friday and what with everything going on I have not had a play yet.  So finger crossed nothing will get in my way, I so want to play.

Have a good day (Monday) and take care you all.

  5. Hi Wilma,
    stunning creation as always. Love the colours and design.
    I have been taking photos of my cards for years, mainly because you forget what you have made and if you can't think of a design you can look through for inspiration. When I started taking the photos it never entered my head to have a blog. I am so glad I did now as I have plenty to put up on my blog.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
