Good morning to you all and thanks for popping in.  Well we have had three days of wind and rain so I'm hoping things will improve now.  I can't complain my well is running dry ... lol!

My Card

My card today is 6" x 6" made from white cardstock.  It is matted with peach pearlescent paper which I have had for many years and I think was from Crafters Companion.  I then matted one of the papers from Papermania's Oyster Blush to that.  I used the same peach paper to diecut  Cheery Lynn's French Pastry Doily which I cut in half and added it to  half of a paper doily.  The sentiment is from Kaisercraft Life's Sentiments and die cut with SB Fancy Tags. The ribbon, lace and pearls are from my stash.

I'm having a day in Cheltenham today with a friend which will be a nice change.  I used to work in Cheltenham before I retired and it is a lovely town.  The journey from here is about 40 miles over very twisty, hilly, country roads.  A joy to go to work in the summer - but an absolute nightmare come winter!  I don't miss that 80 mile round trip I can tell you.

Hope you are all well and finding time for some crafting in your busy lives.

    what a very beautiful card.
    Love the super colour peach and it's elegance.
    Great designing with the 2 different doilies.
    Hope you have had a fab day out today.
    My sister has moved back to Wales from Nr Chippenham, so no more visiting her in the lovely countryside around there, but still when I go to Wales I will have my both sisters in the same town. Hooray!
    My that was a very long journey to work and back.
    I'm sure your glad you don't have to do that anymore.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  13. Hi Christine
    Your lovely card is looking cream and taupe on my screen, which I like as I'm not a peachy gal.
    Gosh, used to get bored on a 40 mile round trip to work, nevermind 80!
    Hope you had a great day with your chum.
