Petal Party


I hope you are all well and last night I came back from a week in Cornwall, it was lovely to see a bit of normality and it was something to finally look forward too, we managed to get Harrison booked into 3 sessions of surfing, so he was happy.

Today's card was another Challenge (It's called 'Split Card Trick') set by my lovely friends, whilst in Lockdown and although I didn't have the stamps, shown in the video, I remembered I had these instead :

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Party Animals - Part 2


I hope you are all staying safe and well ? I had to contact 'Quack' during Lockdown as my Menopausal symptons seemed to be accelerating. From yesterday we were allowed to have our hair cut, so a couple of weeks ago I contacted my hairdresser and yipee she has booked me in for Thursday 9th July at 2pm and I so can't wait, as it's not been coloured (as I can't use any bleach on it) or cut for 19 weeks !! 

I loved the Lawn Fawn - 'Party Animals' I purchased at the start of Lockdown so much I decided to use it, to make a couple of my cards : 

My first card is a sketch I followed, a Challenge set by my lovely friend Kay, during Lockdown to keep me sane ;-) ;

Dies to make windown : MFT - 'Stitched Mod Rect Stax'
Paper : Basic Grey - 'Cupcake'
Ribbon : DCWV - 'Sports'
Banner Die : Poppystamps - 'Party Lanterns'
Star Border : Marianne Design - LR0134
Sentiment : LOTV - 'Circular Greetings'

The second card was made for Alan's friend of 30 years, to cheer him up, after he came out of hospital, as he got COVID 19 and when Alan found out he was told that they were give him another 24 hours on the ventillator in intensive care and if he didn't improve, he was going to pallative care - fortunately he pulled through 

Paper : Papermania - 'For Him'
Sentiment Die : Penny Black - 'Doodles / 51-128'
