Hope you all had a relaxing weekend, or if not I hope you were doing something you enjoyed. We had a weekend in the garden preparing to build the summerhouse. It was delivered last week. They only sent one guy to unload it. He struggled so much on his own, I felt I had to help. Thank goodness I had my Weetabix it was so heavy. I did actually hurt my shoulder as there was nothing to hold on to so it was literally carrying it from the bottom and the height was leaning on my shoulder and my head. The young guy was exhausted when he left and had to find a lay by for the night as it was too late to travel back up north, so I packed him up a goody bag with drinks, biscuits, Sweets and snacks. He was about my son's age, so of course you have to mother them. Paul wrote a really strong message to the company as they said there would be 2 people unloading the item and under no circumstances were we meant to help. I'm sure you would have done the same had you seen how much he struggled. Then when Paul came home and said would you help me carry it into the back garden. I think I got a bum deal that day, but I've got muscles that would make Popeye jealous.
Anyway, I hope you like this weeks card, Phil's paper is really lovely to work with.

First I made my usual matt & layer of Black, Vintage gold & Phil Martins papers. For the larger layer I cut 4 corners, but cut them to make them look equal either side and glittered them. for the top layer I cut another 4 but cut them off to where you see a heart shape, glittered them and attached to each corner. For the focal point I cut another 4 corners and intertwined them to make a diamond shape and added sticky pads and attached to the centre of the card. I stamped a sentiment and inked while still in the die, I used sticky pads for even more dimension. I made 5 various sizes of roses coloured them and and added glitter and arranged them around the focal point along with the leaves , also added some tuille. Finally I cut 2 butterflies and decorated with black pearls.
See you all soon, Same time same place.
Have a good week!
Big Hugs :-)
