Good Morning! I can tell I've not been in my craft room for over 3 weeks!
Looks spotlessly clean,  not a speck of glitter anywhere. Not even been bowling! things are so hectic.  Hubby still not feeling well.  His CT scan is Tuesday and they have brought his appointment forward to the beginning of August to see the specialist. Changed his medicine too. So fingers crossed.

Used scraps of paper for this one...The stars are Memory Box and the numbers don't seem to have a name on. Drawn the 'string on'. Strand of wool from a  lace sweater made many moons ago before cards took over. Shows I'm still a hoarder of most things lol..cause they do come in sometimes.

The Crafter's Cafe ~ Use some Wool
The Paper Shelter ~ Punches or Dies

Good Afternoon!
A wet cold day here. Hubby watching Football, so I've time to upload a card.
It's been in my folder a couple of weeks! I've started a folder, because I seem to get in a mess to which I've made and which I've shown, so some never see the light of day lol. Because it was a case of had I? or had I not? Think I'll call them senior moments.

I've used a Stamping bella rubber stamp. Coloured with Copics..Lots of tiny pearls a little touch of Crystal Stickles round the  dress. Silver threads going through the ribbon {quite like it}, The heart dies are from Crealies and the flower punches from EK Success. Made this card for my friend, she wanted one with a personal touch.
