Good Morning Friends,
Thank you for visiting today! I really thought I had posted this card, but I've checked back and can't find it, so here it is! Apologies if you have seen it before :)
This was a commission card I made earlier this year: it's an 8x8 card matted and layered in blue and white. I used Spellbinders lables 24 and one a die from Venetian Motifs, cut in half to reach all four sides and layered with another die from this set. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and layered over a sheet of card embossed with the the Heart Lattice folder designed by Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.
I am almost at the end of the commissions I took before I decided to take a 'holiday' from it - and a good job I did with the back and hen problems! I have also been busy with a few other projects over the weekend - some presents for my family in the US(which I am going to post on here whilst I am over there) and I've been having a play with some ice resin, making a few pieces of jewellery - it's drying out, so not ready to post yet! The resin was one of two remaining items I bought at Ally Pally in April and hadn't yet used...I'm intending to use the other one in the next few weeks, so watch this space!
Before I go I wanted to share with you a couple of photos...Penny gave us a cause for concern again Saturday as she has more egg laying problems and the others were trying to peck her. We couldn't leave her in with them, so yet again she spent the night in the kitchen! She was fine again this morning but laid another soft egg during the night and because it broke, she was all sticky, so I had to bath her...she's had lots of washes over the past few weeks and loves it. We have never had another hen that would let you fuss with her as she does. As she was so wet, I decided that she had to be dried or they might be tempted to peck again. People who show hens bath and dry them, so why shouldn't I? Anyway, we had the hairdryer on slow and cool and she loved it! All's well with them all at the moment by the way!
