Well, I thought it would be too hot in the studio for crafting today but having flung the windows open early and got the fans on it was tolerable if a little sticky but I did manage to get a couple of cards made this afternoon.
Months ago, one of my friends from Church asked if I would make her a 90th birthday card for a friend for August. Now, I don't know if many of you realise this but my day job is working in a solicitors office in the Probate department (which is basically dealing with peoples money and possessions after death) so whether or not it was the caution of that, or simply not wanting to tempt fate but I left it until now to make the card!!
I am always a bit nervous with order cards but am very pleased with how this turned out
I have stamped the new LOTV Sweet Peas
Painted them with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
A deep lattice border punch from Martha Stewart
and the Happy and Birthday dies from Cheery Lynn
And of course my most used dies from Whimsy for the corners
I have decorated the inside too with another sheet from the Promises pad and a Hero Arts sentiment
that says Wishing You A Day Full Of Sunshine And Smiles
Fingers crossed she will like it!
Hugs, Squirrel xx
