Hello, I'm a bit tired tonight, Adrian and I went out for a meal for a friend's daughter. She turns 21 tomorrow. We were about 10 minutes late getting there, but it was one of those buffet style places. So the others had just started eating when we got there. I bought her a bracelet for her birthday and she seemed to like it. She got quite a bit of jewellery - at least 2 bracelets and 2 necklaces and I didn't see what else. We went back to her Grandma's house so we could have a coffee and chat a bit more as it was too noisy trying to talk at the restaurant. So we didn't get home until about 10.40 p.m. I was surprised to find one of my cards featured over at Digi Darla's Challenge blog, you can see it here.
Our daughter's dog came through her surgery okay but will take a while to get back to normal. She had a piece of bone rupture the inside of her mouth and it healed inside of her cheek and caused an infection in there. That was the rattling noise my daughter could here. Yuck!!! Ruben, the westie is going to stay with us for a couple of days so Moni can rest up and heal before having him jumping all over her. He's still a puppy really.
We still had rain today but was warm mostly. I heard the weather for tomorrow and they say it will be 27C but we probably will still get some rain. Just really weird weather lately.
I am going to share the card I made for Sylvia's 21st with you tonight as I started it last night and only got as far as choosing the image and colouring it.
This is what I made.
The basecard is SU Basic Black, then a layer of blue card (could be one of SU's) and a piece of DP from a mini stack pad by cre8tiv. The digi is from The Sherlock's home - a freebie. It was coloured with Copic Markers. I fussy cut it and adhered it to the front of the card. I cut the 21 with a Cuttlebug alphabet die set called "Baby Face" and I used a shiny silver cardstock. I adhered the numbers inside a black circle punched with a 1 1/2" circle punch which I adhered to a blue scallop punched with a 1 3/4" scallop punch. The inside has a layer of blue card and a white nestie diecut with a trimmed layer of black behind it. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Grey and I also stamped a small butterfly. I stamped it again onto a scrap of white card, coloured the image and cut it out and put it over the original image to give it some depth. The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp called "growing up"
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Poodles Parlour - Anything Goes
Pattie's Creations Design Challenge - Challenge #40 - Anything goes
Stampin' for the Weekend - Challenge 6 Anything Goes
Well hope you are having a great break from work or other responsibilities and managing to find some relaxation time.
Sorry the scans have not shown the true colour of the card. The Dp is actually black with silver lines on the top and bottom and the black looks patchy. I've already given her the card so I can't take a photo. I scanned it quickly before we left and only just checked it now. Oh well, you get the gist of it anyway
