First off, many thanks for all your lovely comments yesterday.... it helped me heaps... it is hard being here and Peter and the family so far away. I went and spent some time with my daughter and son in law last evening and tonight went out to dinner with my son. Had a chat with Peter and they had been out for High Tea at Harrods, a favourite pastime of Helen's and had her favourite Custard Squares. Her funeral service is not till the 15th Feb... (takes such a long time in England) so Peter won't be able to stay.
To keep myself occupied, I have been playing round with some digi pages I purchased from Webster's Pages. The originals are 12x12 so I am still working out how to print them for cards. I have a selection of bits... some parts of paper, some I've printed out in 6x6 size and will cut down and some I printed out onto A4 paper. I decided to make a card, but printed the piece a bit small.... so some improvisation...some extra PP, punched edge and some ric-rack and here's what I did.
The flourishes are from a set by Rosie's Studio and the sentiment by Hero Arts. I had another go at a rolled rose... didn't turn out to bad. Added some stickles for a bit of shimmer and for the leaves, I added some folded velvet ribbon. This card is for someone special and as the rose adds bulk I decided to make an envelope box ( seen here at Splitcoaststampers) I added some more of the Webster's Pages that I printed out onto plain copy paper.
As this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge is "Animal Antics" I am entering this card. I was trawling through the 'net and saw this challenge and thought it fitted perfectly for the card. I like when that happens!
Oh well, I have to go pay some bills on-line and finish reading the blogs on my list... so take care.
