Casing Beccy

Another Sunday and Hubby came home for lunch.
One of the family brings him home in the morning and
another comes and collects him late afternoon to take him back to the home.
Just a few weeks back we were beginning to wonder
how much longer he would be able to make the trip as he was exhausted
after a couple of hours.  But he does seem to have taken on a new lease of life
at the moment. long may it last.

Today I have cased a card of
She was asking us to use a stamp that had not seen daylight for a while.
The stamp I used is not that old about 3 years but 
it was one that I don't think I have ever inked up.
The background was made up some weeks ago when I madly made
masses of Bokeh but with this piece I did not 
sponge the circles as I liked it as it was.
Hope you do too.

Have edged the background with the lovely edge from 
a Sue Wilson die called Lavish Swirls.
Not leaving enough room to stamp a greeting I 
took the opportunity to use up some of my many sticker/peeloffs.
Used 3D medium on the berries and leaves and also
sprinkled on some Diamond Sprinkles.
This gives a lovely sparkle.

Lovely to see you drop in anytime.

Lots of Pearls

Owing to what has been going on in my life I
  now have a lot of cards that I have never posted
so thought it was about time I
showed some of them.

I was asked for a special 50th one that had to go in an envelope.
I took the photo before I put the 50 on the banner.
Should not have used black for the greeting but couldn't find my 
Pearlescant Coral Brilliance pad.
I am making an early New Year resolution
to clean up and put every thing away in it's place when I have
finished making a card.
Wonder how long that will last.

Lovely to see you drop in anytime.

A long time between cards.

Yes it has been along time.
I would like to thank all the people that have been browsing
my blog during the time I have been absent.
thanks for coming by and i hope that now I may be able to
keep up with a few cards for you to see.
We have had a bumpy ride this year but at the moment we are sailing in calmer waters.
Long may it last.
I have managed to make a few cards during the year
but no time to blog.

A very simple but effective card I think.

Am entering this in:

Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas extra.

Thats all for now thanks for dropping in.
