Just a note...

Morning all...

(just to let you know this is an automated post - I rarely get time during the week to actually sit down and blog until the deepest darkest hours of the evening so I thought, it's Sunday, I have a few spare moments I'll schedule some now so my readers have something to read at a sensible hour!)

So how is everyone?

Yes - it is true, I have started my Christmas cards, there I've said it! To be honest it does feel really good. I am a very long way off finishing but at least I can say I've started.  Has anyone else?

Today I wanted to show you a card I made for "my number 1" I don't know if I ever told you her name - its Chloe!  Being busy recently I completely forgot it was her other halves birthday so I had to make something quick, get, wrap and post a present in one day.  As usual though I couldn't leave her out! So whilst I was traipsing looking for the perfect man gift (why are men just so difficult?) I picked up a few bits for her too! Of course I couldn't send her a gift without a card - and so todays post was born!!

Pretty, hey?  I made the card using the gorgeously smooth kraft card from Papertrey Ink and simply stitched onto it some lovely big flowery Pink Petticoat paper from the Wild Blossom Collection - I just can't get enough of Liz's papers at the moment.  To finish it off I added another strip of kraft card to which I stamped my sentiment (another from Papertrey Ink) and made this beautiful felt flower using felt from Paper and String and finished it off with a pale green button (from god knows where!) and some button twine - from the ever faithful Ribbon Girl. I hope she likes it!

Thats all from me today, please feel free to leave me some comments - I will be back (automated) tomorrow.

Take Care

  1. I received this card today and like all the others it made me smile, the card is so pretty. Kate also sent me one of the candles she made. The first thing I did was light the candle. The scent that comes off it smells gorgeous. Vanilla is one of my favourite smells! Whoever receives one of these will be very lucky just like me. She also got me a new book and my fave Chocolate from a little shop in Cambridge which sadly I can no longer buy with me living in the Northeast.
    It was such a lovely thought. Kate always knows how to cheer me up when I’ve been having a rubbish week.
    Thank you Kate!!!
