Quiet Wednesday





Hi there .Welcome to my room .

Just sharing some cards made with kits for my wonderful craft group .All card stock is from SU.

The papers for the top two cards are also from SU .The sentiment , " Best Wishes" is from a retired set from SU. " Thinking of You " is from annabellestamps.

The "Flowering Vine " from first card is a stamp from Stamp-It.
The last card was a little more work to create but my favourite for the day .

Front.. . inside.

More Mustard ,SU, for the card base. with Whisper White for matte and image . The floral arrangement is , " day dreams " from Penny Black .I sponged the white card with two colours, leaving a centre strip between, white ...then stamped the image in Basic Brown. I left it uncoloured .

The background, a retired stamp fom SU, is on Daffodil Delight card, SU.

Ribbon and rhinestones from my stash .

It is a quiet Wednesday because Doug and I have had two glorious days out of the house .

On Monday we went on a bus trip , organised through our retirement village . Through the hills for morning tea at Stirling then on to Middleton for lunch .

On Tuesday Doug gophered off for coffee while I went to Tuesdays craft morning at the Roundabout. About mid morning Doug came in to visit the 6 girls ..[.mainly Sandy as she comes to our home for craft too, as well as Fran who had to work this time but is usually there] After the craft session the girls left and Doug and I walked over to shopping centre for some shopping , making it back to the Roundabout for the great luncheon they serve there .

So as you see it had been two very busy days for Doug and today he is dozing a lot in his chair .

Which means that I have the chance to quietly upload some cards to share in this post today .

Thanks for calling in to see me and I hope you like the cards .

Welcome to my new follower , SID.

Sid has begun a small (21cm x 13cm) Moleskine Art journal and his first page is awesome ..

Anyway time to start dinner ..

Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.
