Tattered Lace

How happy I am that I have so many comments on my last post.  It was lovely to see all my old friends and new friends commenting on my card even although my posts have been sporadic recently due to many things getting in the way of crafting.  I have made up for lost time recently and made a few cards.  This is one of the Tattered Lace dies I bought and I just adore them.  Not been very adventurous yet but have used cards from the demos that Nancy showed in her programmes.  When time permits I will have a go at some "Wilma Originals".

As usual this is an 8 x 8 card, background is Centura Pearl Card edged with some lovely blue and gold peel off I found in my box. Blue Pearlised card overlaid with white Centura pearl die cuts from Tattered Lace (Hearts), big blue organza bow and a few blue gems.  In Nancy's demo she made this as an Invitation Card where you can insert a card with all the details of the event but I like it sealed down.  Simple but effective I think.  I will add the sentiment when it is decided what this card is for.

Well the weather has sure turned cold today, when I was out shopping the thermometer in the car was only reading 4 deg C and it rained on and off all day.  Needless to say it was a quick shop to get the necessities and back home to a cosy house.  Hubby has not been feeling well again, he has not got over the last spell of  "man flu" and was feeling really poorly today and lay in bed trying to get warm.  Hope is clears soon as he is not a man who likes to be idle.

OK then folks that's it for tonight, off to browse your wonderful posts and make some comments.

Take care out there and wrap up warm.
