Brighten My Day

Good Morning, My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope you are all well and coping with these strong winds, when
I keeping asking myself are we going to get some nice warm weather.

Anyway lets not dwell on that subject, as otherwise we will all be
depressed for the day.

Not feeling 100% today, think might be starting with a cold as my head
feels mussy and I keep loosing my voice (some including my hubby
would say that's not a bad thing). Saying this I don't feel as bad  as
yesterday as I ached everywhere and felt so tired. In fact I came
back from Mums and fell asleep until go past 3.30pm and that my
friends is not like me as I tend to keep myself busy most of the time.

Anyway enough moaning for today, lets get on with things.
Hopefully tomorrow will see me better still, you the old
saying " You cannot keep an old dog down" well that me
folks. Today's card is another made using the new Eden
 Cd from Polka Doodles, hope you like?.


1. Started with 7 x5 card white card and matted this with
paper from my stash.

2. Next stage was creating the borders down the side and
for this I used the Tonic over the edge die. I cut them 
using pale green satin card, once cut I adhered them to 
the card at slight angles so that they would match my
next layer.

3. Using the Eden cd I printed off the backing paper and
one of the frames and matted the backing paper onto
pink card, rounded the edges and stuck it onto my card.
The frame that includes the sentiment You Brighten My Day
was then adhered flat to the backing paper.

4. The image is one of the Pre Coloured ones off the cd
and was printed off onto smooth card.  Using the SB
die Labels 47 I cut it out twice, once in pale green
satin card (to match the side borders) and the other
in white card. I then laid them cross ways to each
other and adhered the image into the centre.

Well that's me done, will be back later to do
my rounds of your blogs and my commenting.

Not going over to Linda's today as she is to busy, so will
have a play around hopefully later once all the household
boring chores are done.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
