A quick post, I seem to be in the wars lately, I've pulled a muscle or something in my back again. I must have a bit of a weakness there now as I've done this at least 4 or 5 times over the last year. I woke up with a slight twinge, but after doing some more housework, washing the sheets on the spare bed and remaking it, I was in a fair bit of pain.
I had already decided not to go to craft (had too much to do at home), I did tell one of the ladies yesterday, but she didn't pass on the message so an hour after class should have started I got a phone call from another friend to see if I was alright. I was supposed to be showing them how to make a picture using a serviette. Oh well, there is always next week.
My future DIL asked me about a week ago if I wanted to come with her when she went down to the reception venue. Her mum, one of the bridesmaids, her brother (who wasn't supposed to be there) and myself all went down. We took her decorations for the tables, the jars for the lollies and little organza bags etc down and she paid for it all. Things have certainly gone up since our oldest son got married 9 years ago, the price was just over double of what they paid.
I wanted to thank Shirley for choosing one of my cards for her POW from last week's Make It Monday linky party and also to Michelle for featuring yesterdays card on her Pink Paper Paradise facebook page today.
Anyway, here is my card for today.
Another example of my paper embroidery work. It is one of my favourite techniques and I haven't been doing much of it lately. I'm thinking of doing it on Fridays at class instead of taking stamping/colouring work to do.
The basecard is a bright orange card from stash and I embroidered the pattern with blue and orange metallic threads. I used a border punch and also put a line of gold border sticker down each side. I haven't decorated the inside yet. Haven't quite decided what to put inside.
Thanks for stopping by and I've enjoyed reading your comments.
