Morning my crafting friends, a bit of a quick post for you today as I am still not able to craft much at the moment, I am at work all day then I am at the hospital visiting my neighbour each night in between everything else there's the norm, like housework, cooking etc lol! The news is not good, the doctors have told us Joy (my neighbour) wont be coming home, she is very ill and only yesterday they had me ask her whether she would want to be resuscitated should it happen, well obviously she did not wish to discuss that, I don't know how long she has left but I want to see her as much as is possible, its so sad to see her go downhill so fast, only 6 months ago she was mowing her lawns and still driving.  I will try and post as often as possible but if I miss a few days then you know why!!! Please note I will still be looking in on your beautiful creations, just may not have the time to comment.

May I give a very warm welcome to my newest follower Anthony, welcome, good to have you on board, do take a look at his stunning creations on, well done Anthony.

Now sorry for all the doom & gloom, this is not what we are on here for and Joy would not want it, so for today's post I did a card just with an embossing folder, glitter, a die and some ribbon.

I recently bought  the Tattered Lace embossing folder by the same name as I loved the doily pattern, I had to cut this down quite a bit to fit it on the card lol! I just wanted to show its beauty by having that on a card, glittered up with just a ribbon across the middle, it was only a last decision to add the die cuts for the sentiment, I cut two out of the same die but cut the Teal one in half and tucked each half behind the White one so it looked almost like its shadow.

I have matted and layered the card onto some embossed White card & more Teal card.

I know the bow covers some of the embossing up but I felt it cried out for a fancy bow, adding a gem in the center finished the card off.
