Good Tuesday Morning Everyone
I hope you all had a good weekend, mine was very quiet thank goodness. We are still finding confetti from last weekend, it got everywhere. I found a piece stuck to Mo Mo (cat) in the bedroom, but no one went over that side of the house on party day because of all the cats. We found the confetti very static and when you scattered it onto the table it jumped back and stuck to your hand. So maybe when the cats were allowed back into the other side of the house and ran through the lounge some probably stuck to them, and it's them scattering around. Hey Ho!
We are taking Claire out to lunch today as it's her birthday, so something lovely to look forward to. She doesn't want to go too far from her home as it's worrying her to go too far afield as she is having Braxton hicks contractions now. I've told her they're nothing to worry about, but it's her first time and she needs to feel she is in control, what ever makes her happy we're happy to go along with.
Did you do anything for Valentine's day? We don't celebrate Valentine's day, but I was treated to Scrambled eggs, Salmon & Caviar for breakfast and Paul cooked a lovely roast for dinner too. So I had a lovely day and shut myself in my workroom and made today's card. Spoiled or what!
Anyway, have a lovely week everyone. See you same time same place next week. XX

Sorry can't remember where I got the mold
First I made a mat and layer of mirror card and white card, then embossed the white layer with the Rose garden folder. The second layer was done in the same way. To get both the layers to match I made a pencil mark on the folder when I embossed the 1st layer. For the 2nd layer I decided how much smaller the 2nd layer was going to be and just place it at that distance under the original mark. If this doesn't make sense and you want a tutorial just ask, as I don't want to teach anyone to suck eggs, so to speak. I then gave each layer definition with sticky pads. I then cut and embossed the Toronto die in white card and also cut the outer die in each size in mirror card as backing on both layers, also using sticky pads for dimension. I made several roses and placed around the focal point. I also made some clay roses just to fill in the odd space, added leaves and dried flowers, which I love, they're so pretty.
I hope you liked it.
