Talk about cold I don't think it has got to double figures today.
At least it is not as bad as yesterday with the rain. 
Had a horrid drive home after visiting hubby just on lighting up time.
We do badly need the rain to give the ground a good soaking.

This afternoon I have been to an afternoon tea at the care home where hubby is.
This was for residents of the village to come and meet residents in the home.
So my hospitality skills were put to the test helping to make tea and coffee
for those present.  It is many a long year since I was working in the 
hospitality industry and I was finding it hard work to remember 
2 orders at a time!!!!!.

 Today I am playing with 52 CCT who have a colour challenge.

Although my card doesn't look anything like theirs 
it was the snowman that inspired me.

Thanks for dropping in.

Happy 60th

Thought I would show you something a little different for me today.
This is the card I made for my daughters 60th
back in March but it never made it onto my blog until now.

The layers were made with card and shimmer paper.
The satin ribbon is laid over lace and I didn't have enough for a bow.
The number was cut freehand from white glitter paper.

 I made the small blossoms with an EK success punch
and although it doesn't look like it they were all sponged with
Worn lipstick DI.

The leaves are from Flower frenzy by Paper Artist and it is all set out on
SB Floral Ovals.

This week  Allsorts  Flower Power.

Thanks for dropping in.

Coffee and Cream

How about this for a surprise another card from me.

Life is now beginning to get back to some sort of normality.
Well really it is the beginning of a new stage of life.
We have been through the resistance, the anger 
and the emotional blackmail
and now DH seems to be settling down in the aged care facility.
In fact he has made a lot of new friends and is a hit with the staff
I have been through the tears and the guilt at 
enjoying being on my own and am gradually learning to live on 
my own and am getting back to crafting again.

So here is what I have made.

so I chose April 2015 Coffee and cream.
With a Cuttlebug holly embossing folder and a holly leaf die
this is what I have come up with.

The inside too.
Am also going to enter it in:

Here is a little inspiration for you using one of our wonderful sponor

I have coloured this with my copics and a very simple 3D with 1mm foam.

scraps.  I finished it off with dots of gold perfect pearls and glitter.
Here is a close up of this gorgeous pair.
Also managed to get my faux stitching straight for once!!!!
