Yellow and Gold!

Good Afternoon Everyone, and I hope you are all well and fit, but if not then consider yourselves sent out some kind and positive thoughts for a speedy recovery.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my CCC card, you are all very kind and I do appreciate the support from you all. 
A warm welcome too to my latest Follower, Brenda. Brenda has been visiting for a wee while but thought she had clicked the Follow button, but didn't show up.  Blogger has really interfered with the Followers, I seem to be off a few folks radar, and I'm trying to work out who.  Why oh why if it ain't broken try and fix it?? 

Anyway, here is a card I made a while ago but not shared,
I've used one of the latest CB floral stamps and colours with Gansai Kuretaki watercolour paints and cut it out with an Xcut die. The background paper, is by Lesley at Chocolate Baroque, which was a freebie., Matted onto black card a bit of gold ribbon and a few gold gems.

Blustery day here, we were going to have a bit of a walk, but I hate the wind, so a no go, but I do have to go out tonight as it's our last rehearsal before our concert on Saturday, so it will be fine tuning and polishing up our singing.Although we rehearse on Saturday afternoon, it's really the orchestra and soloists who have come together for the first time that our conductor concentrates on. If we don't know our stuff by then, it's too bad, but of course we do no one likes to let Gordon down.

That's me for today, off now to have an hour or so in the craft room, so see you all soon,

Well said on the fixing Kate, I echo your thoughts wholeheartedly. Ans as you say it's so difficult knowing who is missing from your lists, with all the will in the world so often you only realise when you see a name on another blog and the penny drops.

Enough waffle from me, I adore your yellow Roses, they have quite a Vintage feel to them.

Beautiful colouring on the roses your card has a real vintage feel and appearance. Cold here too and quite windy at times spent the day indoors tidying the filing cabinet, a job which was badly needed.

A very beautiful stamp and excellent work with the GK watercolors. It's a very pretty layout and shows off the image so nicely. Love the dainty white frame with the texture of the brown. Well done, good luck with the rehearsals! (Blogger played with my followers too. Lost about 20 I think, but can't tell just who it is that is gone). TFS

Good luck for the concert on Saturday I am sure it will be fab Kate.
A lovely rose card for any occasion, the roses are coloured beautifully.
It is a better day here today, if only that wind would drop it would be very Spring like.

Enjoy the rest of your day, hugs Erika. x
