I started out with a piece of blue pearlescent card stock 11 x 5½ inches and cut it into a centre step card. I die cut the second largest die from SB Decorative Lables 8 in a darker blue pearlescent blue card. Then came the second size in Floral Ovals. I cut two of SB Scalloped Circles in the same size in both shades of the blue and off set them slightly, having first stamped the pale blue one with an LOTV sentiment circle in ultramarine ink. I used Memory Box Tessatina Border down both sides. The flowers are WOC and the leaf sprigs are Cheery Lynne Wreath Strip. ( Not sure why it is called a strip because the leaves are individual.). I used a white rose and die cut the leaves in white too to off set some of the blueness. I then just finished it with some blue pearls from my stash and the lovely blue satin ribbon is from the candy I won from Patricia a long time ago.
Well my"roofing expert" - aka John - has finished his job and the scaffolding has been dismantled. I now don't have to worry if it rains. However, he discovered that wasps were nesting in the wall next to the window so he had to sort that out too. There's always something isn't there? I have only ever been stung once but it wasn't a pleasant experience. John had to be very careful because he reacts very badly to wasp stings and last summer he disturbed a wasps nest in our little wood when he was sawing branches off some of the trees. He was stung about 11 times and was quite poorly. It could have been much worse though because he was using a chain saw at the time! I had the antihistamine pills at the ready this time - just in case!! (You'll notice I didn't offer to do it myself!)
Well, I hope you all have a great day!
