Hello Everyone and welcome to my blog, I hope you will like what you see here. Thank you one and all for the lovely comments on my last card and your kind wishes for Alistair and I to feel better, they must have worked because we do, not 100% but well enough for me to go back to work tomorrow and Alistair to think of a hill walk later in the week.
I've been getting on with some ironing this afternoon, and I like doing it if there is something to watch on the TV, I found The Thornbirds, do any of you remember it? I can't remember when it was first on the telly, but I do remember thinking Richard Chamberlain was every girl's dream, I must have been fairly youngish. I think I've tuned into the last episode and he is a Cardinal and an old man , but still good looking, but if you remember the story, and now in my mature cynicism, his character was a selfish, ambitious and abusive man, and at the end deserved what crushed him. I remember not missing and episode and I even read the novel, today I've enjoyed ripping it apart. Still it got me through the bundle of ironing.
We have a a lovely weekend weather wise, feels quite Spring like although still cold, but the sun is shining and it lifts the spirits. I'm looking forward to getting the heating turned down a bit, I just paid the electric bill and I grudged it, the cost of heating is horrendous, I really feel for those who find it difficult to meet the cost of heating their homes, thankfully we can, but you never know what life has for you around the corner. Nevertheless Spring is almost here, and here is my card with some Spring flowers;
I've used LC image, Club Stamp from last month
SB Corner die from Frosty Forms
Sorry can't remember the paper used
Hobby Craft Lace and Ribbon
Core'dination card in orange
Pearls and Butterfly from Stash
Sentiment from PC
Stickles and a few gems.
This was a commissioned card, so I hope Granny likes it.
I've got Choral practise tonight, but I don't know if my throat will stand up to the singing, but I'd better go as I missed last week with being away, I'll just have to do a lot of miming.
Take care everyone and see you soon.
The big reveal....hooking style.
