Just a Little Card!

Good Evening Everyone,  I hope you are all well, but sending kind thoughts to those who are not so good and hope you'll be better soon.

Thank you one and all for the lovely comments on Dale's card, I do appreciate each and every one.

Well, our concert was super, very well received, but I ended up with such a raw throat that I could hardly speak yesterday, Alistair liked that cheeky monkey.  Fabulous piece of music, but very high notes, and going from really high octaves to very low ones, quite harsh on the old throat, but nevertheless loved it.  We have a break now until August, it will be lovely to have my Monday nights back. More time to craft.

My little offering today was a card I had to make in a hurry, so there is not much to it;
Crafty Individual Stamp edged with Spice Marmalade DI
Centura Pearl card, embossed with Embossalicous Folder
Pearls from my stash

I left it simple as it's for friends who have invited us to a party and to stay for a couple of days and unfortunately we can't go as Alistair is away on a canoeing weekend, it's a pity as we would be meeting up with lots of good friends, but I don't fancy going myself as it's a long drive over to Strathdon.  It's just typical though, nothing for ages and then like corporation buses, two things come along at the same time

That's me for tonight, off to make a cuppa, hope to see you soon and take care everyone,
