Bit late posting this today but once again I write to you of another illness!
Jo has been in bed for the last four days but as to what is wrong with her I will just have to say - Pass! All I get out of her when I ask how she feels is "sick". She isn't usually poorly and even if she does get ill she doesn't like giving in to it but I have to confess to being quite worried about her, even though she refuses to let me get the doctor out! If things aren't any better in the morning then I will have to just ignore her wishes and call someone, so a few kind words on her blog wouldn't go amiss I'm sure!
In other news, has Spring finally arrived? I actually opened the bedroom window today!!! Our eldest cat Georgia immediately jumped into the front garden and spent a half hour looking for a nice bit of grass to suck on (she really is missing her teeth bless her!).
To pass the time spent on my own today, I found myself altering an empty Yorkshire Tea box. I'm not one for messing around usually, I normally know exactly what it is I want to do but today I just grabbed some papers and my Distress inks and started putting something together. It's not quite finished yet (and even when it is I have no idea what I am going to do with it!!) but when it is I will be sure and let you have a look at the finished product, just don't expect too much as it's not really my usual thing, I'm still a bit of a learner on the distressing front.
My new card is one of my new Tilda's (coloured with my trusty PM's - loving the new Spring/Summer set too much at the moment!!). It's an 8x8 and the rose in the corner was made using a little Spellbinders set that I have never used before and I love the finished product. A friend bought me a lovely little set of different coloured mini gems for Christmas (even as I write that sentence I feel the need to once again confirm, yes I AM a man!!!) and even though they don't really show up very well on the picture, I made a swirly design using all the pinks and I think it makes a nice change to having a stem and leaves on the flower. Papers are all Basic Grey and the embossing folder is an 8x8 Die'sire Embossalicious folder called Regency Frame. Not a fan of anything Crafter Companion (I can't stand how everything they bring out is just a cheaper imitation of something better already produced by way more talented people!) but no one else is making larger embossing folders at the moment so Yay to them, they've actually come up with an original idea I can get behind. Flowers are from WOC (as per usual) and to finish the little angels off I used my quickie glue pen for the first time ever to give their wings a bit of a make-over.
I will finish this post on a bit of a high note. Last week I was literally given the push from the Kenny K design team and yet I start this week as one of their Top 3 for my Blue 4 U card below!! How awesome is that?
Hope you have a good week, I will put my little box up as soon as it's finished and as soon as Jo is up to it she has some lovely cards to post on her blog too.
Have a great week,
Hugs 'n Stuff,
