Good Afternoon Everyone.
In all the excitment of seeing Ruby yesterday I forgot to welcome my new followers. Very remiss of me I know and I apologise. So I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Samantha, Tracy and Misseke. Thank you for choosing my blog to follow.
Over on CAS- ual Fridays the challenge is to make a clean and simple male card. Now you all know how I struggle with man cards and the men themselves don`t exactly help do they? I swear if it was left to my OH there would be no such things as greeting cards at all. But I have to make a start on some for the fundraising box so this is my first one of (hopefully) many.
Background is Pink Petticoat Chevron in Duck Egg.
I printed the letters on the PC using Ariel Hollow font and then filled them in with blue glitter using a fine tip nozzle. Wasn`t sure about glitter on man cards but hey..even men need a bit of sparkle in their lives don`t they?
The sentiment is from 2 different stamp sets and I can`t remember which sorry, stamped inVersafine Onyx. The banner is simply a strip cut with the trimmer and I`ve made the `v`s` with the corner of a square nestie.
Nice simple little card. I haven`t joined in with the casual girls in ages so I`m pleased I had the time to do this one.
We had a lovely afternoon with Ruby and her mum & dad yesterday. Ruby arrived dressed in her new Tinkerbell dress and the easter bonnet I made for her. Believe me it`s a look only a three year old can carry off, hee hee she looked a picture. After the obligatory counting of the fish in the pond and watering the plants ( something that has become a ritual) she found the biscuits and settled down to stuff her face. All was going so well until she decided to climb onto a dining chair and promptly slid off between the back rest and the seat banging her head on the radiator control knob. She has a huge egg on the back of her head and there were tears all round, including me but she`s fine again now. Poor little mite, as if she`s not going through enough right now.
Right I`m off again to enjoy the sunshine while I can.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
