Hello to You, and welcome to my my wee bit of cyber space, and I hope all is going well for you today. Thank you to all who visited and left a comment on my CCC card, you are all so kind and it is so encouraging to read your kind words.
We have a very dark sky at the moment, and expecting thunder and lighting any time soon, that was the forecast, and it's doing what it said on the tin. I got bedding out and dry and Alistair got the grass cut so bring it on. This morning was glorious too and really hot.
I've spent three days trying to construct the lantern that Patricia of Summerhouse Crafts posted last week. Engineer I am not, I just couldn't get the top and bottom bits to fit, I had to finally give up, but I managed to save the panels and I'll use them again in a card. I think I know where I went wrong and it's all to do with not being able to measure properly. I will have another try when the frustration has gone, like maybe next year. I do think though that my forte is in card making and not construction.
Anyhow here are a couple of little cards that will be going to the craft fair;
Using Tattered Lace Giraffe die this is just a simple New Baby card. The paper I've had for a while in my box and I've forgotten where it's from. Some Liquid Pearls and a bow and that's it.
Likewise, using the Giraffe die again, we have a Boy's card. It's a bluey green spotted paper and turquiose card, again they have been in my box for a while, some nice turquoise ribbon , and gems. as I say simples...... I do love these dies though, they are so sweet.
Well there has been the most almighty crack of thunder a minute ago, woke both Teallach and Alistair up, they are both snoozing on their respective chairs, it must be great to be a man and a cat that are soooooo well looked after!!
That's me for another day, I'm off to see to the lamb that's cooking in the oven, the smell of the rosemary is wonderful, looking forward to my dinner.
Take care everyone and see you soon,
