Good afternoon from a beautifully sunny Derbyshire. First of all I wish to thank everyone for the lovely birthday greetings. We had a lovely week in the Cotswolds, mainly visiting National Trust and walking in some of the lovely gardens. At Upton Park I took lots of pictures of the deer and was able to get so close to them. They are on my ipad and I haven’t downloaded them yet so will share a few when I do.
I took my holiday stitching but didn’t make much progress as by the time we had dinner and got back to our room at night I was too shattered to anything much. This was how it looked before we left home.This is the progress made; at least there is a little less green to stitch next time lol.
Amongst the gifts I recieved for my birthday,( I am a lucky bunny as most of it has been craft stuff and I will share soon), was a cd to add to my graphics program. I have Craft Studio, and this cd contained four digi kits for parchment. One was all frames, one was butterflies an another was flowers, the last which I haven’t used yet was lace. Each of the digi kits contains a minimum of 50 designs and the card below contains just two of them, a frame and a butterfly. I designed two cards and printed them off on parchment paper. One I have made into a card and when I have completed the other I hope to make that into a card too. But here is a picture of the first one I madeMy hand was not too steady when embossing the circle but otherwise I am really pleased with it. I don’t know why the little daisy in the bottom corner closed up – maybe it was feeling shy, but its opened again now lol.
The only other card I have made so far this month is this one, which again uses another of my birthday gifts – the Sue Wilson, Hobnail Vase die.
I am obviously slacking on the card front this month, but after making 98 cards last month I feel I am allowed to have a bit of a breather this month. Guess I will soon get back into things.
Well that’s all for now, so thank you for taking the time to read. I am now going to sit in the garden and read for a bit – we have to make the most of the sunshine we get in the UK.
Hugs to all who need or want them.
