Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.


We had a thunder storm and some heavy rain last night.

It was much needed in my area of Kent as my grass in the garden looks dead and my Daughter hasn't had to cut the grass all summer this year so far.

Sometimes my Son does it and sometimes my Daughter does as my garden slopes to the side and bottom of the garden and I can't manage the lawn mower any more because of the slopes.

Today I have a card I made for my Daughter's Birthday back in the begining of July.


This is a 8"x8" size card which is my preferred size if I am not posting it.

The lovely glittery ombre paper is from Craft Artist from C&C.

I decided to attach part of some lace I had in my stash to the back of the oval die cuts.

The oval dies are from Crafts Too and bought from Amazon.

I used some lace daisies with some bling for the centres.

The Happy Birthday die is a Sue Wilson one and typed sentiment is fron a Hunkydory book of typed sentiments bought from Amazon.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.

I really appreciate every visit and wonderful comments you make.

Lots of crafty love. JENNY.

Hi Jenny, So glad you are getting some rain at last, we have been having lots and lots of rain these past couple of days, this evening I went for my power walk and half way the heavens opened and the raindrops were huge, I was absolutely drenched before I got home, I peeled off my clothes and got straight into the bath haha.
Your card for your Daughter is, as always, beautiful. The colours are so pretty, as is the lace, so very effective.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

This is such a lovely sparkly card for your daughter- very glam! Beautiful design, the lace behind the die cuts looks gorgeous against that sparkly ombre background.
The rain has been such a relief- our lawn was gasping too! The air feels much cooler and fresher this evening, hopefully a better sleep tonight.
