Hearty (& VERRRY Quick) Papertake :)

Picture 005c copy

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

This is a shortie post today, both in terms of the amount of waffle (hurray I hear you cry!!) and also in terms of the time it took to make this card.

Over at Papertake Weekly, our theme is

Have A Heart

so we just want to see something heart shaped somewhere on your card.

So my gorge Lili Of The Valley image has some hearts on it and there is a pink heart on the ribbon as well.

Now when I say this was easy and quick, it’s a bit of an understatement,  cos I reckon it took about 15 minutes and that is QUICK for me cos usually I am soooooooooo  slllllllooooooooooowwwwwww!!!

There’s not a Copic in sight today cos I used one of the LOTV cute squares which are coloured so beautifully.

All I did was add a little bling.

And if you wanted to make this ultra special, all you would need to do is to cut off the back of the card and stick the front onto an 8 x 8 white card blank.

This is so easy to do and really quick as well.

And all these beautiful blooms are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The paper is by Summer Driggs and is from her Dryer Lint At Tiffanys collection - how cool is that name!!! And this very beautiful lady gives her collections totally free for us to use.

Thank you Summer, you are as lovely as you are talented :) xxx

Yes, you are not seeing things.

The  MS Doily punch is back.

You didn't think I’d gotten rid of it or just stuck it in the bottom of a draw did you?

Well OK, it WAS in the bottom of a draw – shame on me- but I thought I’d bring it out of retirement today.

Only one side view today cos the other pic was total and utter pants!!!

And of course the dodgy angle one to finish.

So that’s my quickie card – hope you liked it peeps :)

I’ve had quite  a  lovely day today.  I had lunch with a lady of many  years who was a Holocaust survivor and one of the sweetest, most interesting and genuine people I have ever met.  She has touched me in so many ways and our conversation will stay with me for a long long time. You don't often meet people like that who really do connect with you. She and I have spoken many times on the phone but today was the first time we met. And it was nice.

Then it was another first cos I had another fab conv, this time with our very own Lols. It’s the first time we have actually spoken although we do have cyber chats. And she is just as nice as I thought she would be, She and I are going to meet for sure one of these days.  And it will be fab :)

So on that note I am off to catch up with some bits and bobs while I await his Lordships return from work. I feel a bit guilty cos I had a slap up lunch and he had a jacket spud.

Poor beggar!!

I gather from the odour that greeted me when I got home that this may have been a slightly back jacket spud as well.

Ahhhhh, bless him.

Have a great evening peeps and see you soon if not sooner and hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny

Gorgeous quick card, love the cute squares - they look as though you had watercoloured them. Summers papers are great and she is so generous with them.

Beautiful Dawny! I was looking at these last week at Manchester, was very tempted, wish I had listened to that little gremlin that sits on my shoulder and forces me to buy stuff!! Mind you I DID succumb and bought loads of stamps, can't resist the fab LOTV!!

Hugs, Barbara xx

Spotted the MS doily STRAIGHT away. I still haven't brought myslef to part with so much money on one item, but drool over it everytime I see it used. Sorry for the dribbly bits on your card. I'm sure you can wipe them off lol! I love the way you've layered the different doily colours-it's so effective! xxx
