You're on my mind.

Hello there and welcome to my room . Hope the beginning of the weekend was good for you.
Remember yesterday,  I said that Doug wanted to go somewhere else for our morning coffee?
Well we did! We went to a place in Burnside , here in Adelaide , that has been advertising of late on the radio. First time ...last time .  We were placing our order of 2 mugs flat white, one serve toast and one serve of fruit loaf and the woman was chatting to someone else,  and all the while loudly   ' darling 'this and 'lovey ' that to my Doug whom she does not know. That in itself was a turnoff for us. But when we got our order , coffee was luke warm,  there were two serves of fruit loaf and they were cold. The butter was served in a lump in a dish with the jam... So back to our usual haunt I  think tomorrow morning .
ANY WAY ..sorry about the griping .
Todays card is a swap . An  aperture was the requirement this time

Everything used in this card is from SU . I created the aperture in card front using a die cut and Big Shot,  then I used a Chocolate Chip marker  around the edge to create a frame . I used Crystal effects on that to add dimension and 3D effect.
On the inside , behind the aperture , I used the card  piece that was cut out , covered it with DSP , added a flower and brad.

I placed it behind  aperture so that the flower was slightly raised when card closed .
I liked the look of the framed aperture but next time I might try putting dsp on front first to soften the  look.
I love that crystal effects as the clear laquer just stayed where I squeezed it around the edge of frame .
The sentiment I thought , was fairly plain or blunt which suited the style of this card.
I hope that you have had a great day and that you can call in again soon
until then , cheers for now Shirley-Anne

Hi Shirly-Anne, funnily enough we Hve been out for lunch today, roastbeef and all the trimmings, but it was cold, they had put cauliflower cheese with it which I love and it tasted odd so everything else took on the taste, I should have complained really , but hey ho, griping right back at you! sorry. it does us good to get these things off our chests!

your card is gorgeously simple I love it. hugs chris xx
