Hi my regular blog friends and to those just pass through, please feel free to stay and leave a message.
I was so upset about my friends 40th afternoon tea. On Saturday ( Valentines day ), Paul cooked me a wonderful brunch before he had to go to London to work on some blooming computers. He said we would have a drink together when he gets home. Paul didn't get home till 1.55am due to an announcement after he had been on the train home for half an hour, that there were works on the rails and he had to join the line for a bus home. Not long after Paul had left that day I felt a little bit under the weather, by 6pm I had the full blown tummy bug that is doing the rounds ( No Paul didn't try to poison me ) I hope!. I was up all night, and Sunday. I was gutted that I couldn't go to celebrate with my bestie & hubby. Paul went and and gave her the card I had made her and her flowers and he said it was a beautiful day. Ann rang me later that evening and we had a chat about the day, it sounded like she had a fantastic afternoon.
Another day now, feeling a lot better, not 100% but too scared to eat. Hey ho!
This is another card made with the Sassy Creative Expressions stamps, Luckily for Paul I'm not grumpy in the mornings. Hope you like this one.
Products used :-

I started by matt and layering the gold and the mauve card and using the piercing ruler to give a decorative edge. I then did a smaller dimension of matt and layering with white and gold foundation card with an embossed layer using the rambling rose EF as a decorative background. I used the basic matting 3d dies and cut two different sizes, one for the main stamp and another for the sentiment. Then I cut 2 of the dainty frames and framed the lady and also the top and side of the lady and the sentiment. I scored the bottom of the mauve card and added the border die and folded into a ruffle and added glitz. Finally I added a bow from the 3d collection.
I hope you like this one.
I will put Claire's card up late tomorrow after she has seen it . I didn't get to see Claire on her birthday 16th Feb ( Mon ) as she was spending her 1st married birthday with Toby and they were going out for meals all day.
Today when this blog goes out, Claire will be coming over to have lunch with me, she fancies a steak, saute potatoes and whatever else she wants to go with it. It's a shame Paul won't get to have lunch too, and cut her cake but even more for her to take home.
I hope you all have a lovely Tuesday, Talk soon, take care all
