Sweet Smiles

Good Evening,
My Crafty Friends. Followers and Visitors

Before I start my little saga I would like to welcome Bonnie who is my latest follower.

Late posting from me today, its been one  of those days, you know the ones
when whatever you want to do seems to go haywire  or take an age.

Started when I had to go to hospital this morning for a blood test, now bearing in mind
the hospital is literally down the road from where I live, because it was pouring
down I decided I would go in the car, well a snail could have got there quicker.
The traffic was horrendous, well eventually I got there, got wet through going
into the hospital and then when I got to the blood test department ITS WAS PACKED
and this was only 8.45am and to top it all there had been a burst somewhere
and the department was flooded.  Anyway  I had to wait 15min to be called so
was not that bad in the end but I had to stand for the whole 15mins and boy
could I feel it on my back.

Came home and tried to make a start on doing my DT work   and I think  I
left my mojo in the hospital because for the life of me I could not get going.
Mary came as usual then Linda and we all had a nice lunch, helped
Mary to sort some of her cards out and slowly mojo started coming back.

Well now that I have bored you all to tears (sorry) here is an little
card I have made using another Sherri Baldy digi that I won.


1. Using  an 8 x 8 card I matted it with paper from Craftwork Cards
before I adhered it to the card I wrapped lace around the bottom
and down the side.

2. The image I coloured using Copic Pens and then die cut  using
a Tattered Lace Oval die and mounted it into the centre of the
card using foam pads.

3. The flower is made out of ribbon and I have used a lilac brad
as the centre.

To complete I added a With Love Tag and added a dragonfly brad.

That's it for today, my friends, hope you will
call again tomorrow and I promise it will be
as short post.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
