Royal Couple

Hi everyone,I would like to again welcome two new followers,Donna and Jennipher, wow, I am nearly at 100 followers, I started off with my friend, Shirley, who introduced me to the world of blogging and I enjoy the time I manage to find to blog and look around. Anyway, I hope you enjoy what I have to share and would love to "see" you from time to time!
I had a great day with friends at our regular Saturday get together.
This week we had a go at decorating a pre-made padded coathanger with beads. I started mine off and had problems with the thread not going through some of the smaller beads a second time, so got frustrated and chopped it off. I took a long time trying to decide what to put on there, I didn't bring enough beads with me so didn't really have what I thought I wanted. Finally got it together and got one drop of beads finished and had trouble with splitting the thread and got in a huge mess. My friend Kim tried to help and in the end still had to do some chopping again, LOL. The result was that I ended up with half the drops finished before I left and as we are continuing doing them next Saturday it might not get touched till then. By the way everyone else's coathangers had lovely beading on them.
Adrian, is starting to improve, not so much pain now and has ventured outside a bit more, spending some time out in a chair reading and also entertaining a visitor who dropped in today.
Anyway, time is marching on and I had better share my card for today.
Here it is,
Basecard is SU Early Espresso, a layer of SU Creamy Caramel and I am fairly sure the DP is SU as well (from my scrap stash) I used a sentiment from a retired SU set called Small Sayings, inked with a Marvy Marker and split into 3 lines instead of the original one, added some faux stitching as well. The King and Queen are embossed card using Tim Holtz "Poker Face Set" and sponged with SU Close to Cocoa. I coloured the hearts and clubs in with Marvy Markers - I popped the Queen on with foam dots.
The inside of the card has a piece of Creamy Caramel and a scrap of the DP. The sentiment is from SU clear set "Happiest Birthday Wishes" and I added 2 punched hearts. Voila - all finished!!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Kings and Queens
Moving along with the Times - Challenge 134 - Have a Heart
Ditzy-craftymess challenge blog - Anything Goes
Off to bed I think as feeling a bit off colour, just not enough sleep lately!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend,
Take Care,
