Happy Bank Holiday Monday to all my UK bloggie pals, and a Happy Monday to anyone overseas. Today is forecast to be wet and windy so Toad and I are heading off to a favourite garden centre this morning where they sell homebaked cakes, bagsy a cheese and ham scone with a big mug of latte! Then we are popping over to see the Oldies to make sure they aren't up to any mischief.
Speaking of the Oldies, it is my beloved mum's birthday in a couple of weeks and I wanted to make her something a bit different from my normal. So, when a pal suggested I make a twisted easel card I thought she had lost her mind, I don't do complicated. But I sat down and watched a tutorial on YouTube and wondered why I had panicked - if someone had told me before it was only one fold I would have been turning these out by the bucket load. I made my first one on Saturday (can't show you that yet) and my second one yesterday, which will be mum's birthday card.
Really sorry about the dark/light photo - it was a bugger to get a good shot of this.
So, LOTV James With Daisy
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
LOTV/Raspberry Road papers Baskets & Bunnies
Wild Rose Studio dies - Rose Corner and Wild Rose
Sentiment stamps from Personal Impressions
Pearls from stash
I made a little triangular block for the sentiment so it was raised at an angle, but it has more angle than originally anticipated, so it will be difficult to shove into an envelope. Next job, a shallow box!
Thanks ever so much for popping over today. I know I am way behind (again) with visits and comments so I really appreciate you taking the time out to still come and see me; it means a lot.
Hugs to all
