Dessert Card

Good Tuesday Morning to all my regular blog friend visitors and to those who just pass through. Please feel free to pause a while and write a comment.

Out of all the stamps I was sent for this month this is my favorite.

Products used:-

8X8 white card
Pink mirri card
Creative Expression- Black foundation card
Creative Expression- white foundation card
Sue Wilson- Lattice Heart EF
Grosgrain ribbon
Spellbinders- Grand large labels
Spellbinders- Tag Dies
Sue Wilson- French collection Corner, border & tags die
Creative Expression- Crystal sparkler

First I started with a matt of pink mirri card and a piece of white card embossed with the heart lattice EF. The second layer of matt and layering is black card, pink mirri and heart lattice embossed white card only 3/4 the way down. Next I stamped from the kitchen utensil stamps on black card with Adirondack snow cap ink, then cut it out with the smallest Spellbinder grand Labels die, and while still in the die I lightly inked with the snow cap ink and attached it to the top of the card. I then cut from the French collection border and attached a strip of pink and white striped grosgrain ribbon and adhered it to the bottom of the card. I then tied a bow with the same ribbon and glued it in the middle of the border. Finally I attached a sparkle from CE.

I hope it all makes sense, and I hope you like the card.

To all my regular visitors, I just thought I would let you know that Anthea has had some really intense radiotherapy and it is working big time. She has her final session on the 11th Dec,and she has said that her and Jake want to come for big hugs and cuddles sometime over Christmas, which will be FAB.

Paul had to go to the A&E again today as the eye cream they gave him last week reacted badly. His eye has now ulcerated and the iris has gone soggy and has attached itself to something else in the eye. He had to go back today and again tomorrow, as the ulcer has been quite aggressive,  hopefully better news today.

Claire STILL work in painful progress. I just despair of the NHS, and whole heartedly agree with Margaret ( Corgi Owner ). Claire needs to be seen by a vet. If she had been back September she would be sorted by now.

Thank you for your lovely comments about my last card.

Talk soon, have a great week
