Merry Mauve!

Thank you for all your lovely messages on my last post.
You are all so kind.
As an update, my sister seems to be settling into the home,
She said to one of the carers that she really liked it there,
but won't be staying there for ever!! Bless!!

So this is one of my cards that I really enjoyed making.
I have had the stamp for a few years but only used it a couple of times.
I decided to use different colours for the baubles, just for a change.

I used an old Go Kreate Frilly 10 die, for the mat.
The text banner die, I bought online. 

The backing paper I have had for many years,
The front bauble I stamped twice and 3D it, to give it a  bit 
more shape. I used Copics to colour the image.

I then covered the baubles and the berries with Glossy Accents.

So it was a simple card to make and quite quick too.

Guess what? As I am in my sitting room, with my lap top 
on my lap, the rain is hammering down!! Now there's a change!!
I thought, when we moved here, nearly 5 years ago, partly because
this is supposed to be the driest area in the country!!
Where is the wettest? Answers on a postcard!! If not, on my post!!Lol!!

If this weather doesn't change soon, my feet will change into webbed  feet!!

I have put a few things I am selling, on my Facebook page and also onto
 Facebook Marketplace. A friend also asked if I would like to put them on
her Facebook group, Suffolk and Norfolk Crafters. 
So I am hoping that I could get some money, for the Charities I support. 

Back to my desk now, to finish my last 6 cards I have to make and then
I can take them to the Care Home I supply.  That will be 60 cards for them!! 

I have made a few for me but no where enough. Keeps the grey matter working!

Thank you again, for you lovely messages. 
They are all read and appreciated and very uplifting.

So please stay safe and well.
Big hugs,

Hope everything is ok with you.

this is lovely Carol, the baubles are beautiful and remind me of the ridged glass ones that my Grandma used to have on her tree when I was small. The solver goes so well with the mauve. So pleased to hear that your Sister is settling in, bless her xx
