I hope that you all had a lovely long week end. It was a shame that the weather was not as bright and warm as they forecast!
On Saturday I met a lovely lady named Maria that visits www.cotswoldcrafter.blogspot.co.uk I think most of you know it but if you haven't visited, it is well worth it. It's one of the friendliest places I know. You will be made most welcome. We chatted and chatted and chatted. It felt as if we'd known each other for years but was the first time we'd seen each other. I did have an inkling who I was looking for because I'd seen a photo on the afore mentioned blog. But as I said on the blog it did feel a bit like of a blind date
Thank you to Margaret corgiowner, Erika and Littlelamb for joining in the dance I value everything you say
Margaret - my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I don't visit it often but I will look out for you
Today's card was inspired by this post by debsartliff See here
It includes a few firsts for me a) sparkly sparkly b) texture paste through a mask and c) using an embellishment in the centre of my bow
I was asked to make a card for a friend. she said that the lady it was for had very poor eyesight, so I wanted to include textures, but still be able to put it into an envelope and not need a box.
Now I've seen a photograph I think next time I will sit the "labels" slightly higher. Funny how a photo can change how we view things
