Well after bragging about the lovely weather here yesterday .. .. it has been rubbish today. Serves me right!! In fact it is raining so much at the moment that it looks foggy!!
We are off out tonight to deliver a bouquet of flowers and a card to a special lady. It is my hubby's "pretend Auntie" who was his late Mum's friend since childhood and they lived at opposite ends of the same street for many, many years.
I wanted to make a special card for her .... but didn't want it to look old because even though she is going to be 90 she certainly isn't old. I do hope that if I am lucky enough to live this long that I fare as well as she has.
In the past she enjoyed sewing and went for lessons at the local college for years so hopefully she will appreciate what I have made for her.
Image, Cotton Reels and Backing Paper: Pink Petticoat
Sentiment: "90 Years Young" was computer generated and printed directly onto my backing paper
Sentiment: "You're Sew Special" came alongside the Pink Petticoat image.
Nestabilities: Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle
Woodware Punches: Daisy
Nellie Snellen Punch: Frond
Tape Measure: there are stamps available for these but I simply put my tape measure into my flatbed copier .. .. not tried this before and quite like the look!! I wonder what else I can put in LOL!!
My Trust Sewing Machine
Ribbon, brads, pearls, embroidery thread and charm from the Stash Box
So that is my share for today .. .. I now need to go and get the insert inside and the flowers ready for dropping off.
Have a good evening everyone.
