How has your week been so far? We are now at the half way point so we are getting ever closer to the weekend. I have lots to do before we get there but I feel like I am catching up on outstanding projects.
The girl who comes and gives me a Sport's Massage once in a while asked if I would make a birthday card for her mum. She wants to take her mum on a cruise and this will be her special present. I think it is a lovely generous idea. They have both had a tough year and it will do them both good.
I was asked to give the card a nautical feel. I used all the blue shades of Centura Pearl card that I have to make the layers. I have just bought the Sue Wilson Double Pierced Noble Square and Retangle dies and I used them to cut some of the layers. There are now B sets to match these dies, they have gone on my wish list.
I used some of the other dies from the Noble collection to create the frame. I heard Julia Watts say to do the embossing before the cutting and I did this and it worked a treat. The ship was cut with a Signature die.
Under the ship I put the message that had be requested. I used the bunting from the Flower Pot Shelf die again.
I am a bit of a sucker for competitions on Facebook and I often enter. Well on Friday last week I was lucky and I won this set of dies on the Hochanda Facebook page. I think they are going to be very useful.
I hope my massage lady likes this card. I hope that you enjoy the rest of the week.
