How long does it take to make a card.........

Hi everyone, hope your Monday got off to a good start.  Mine always has a mixture of things happening, so its starting 7 jobs and see how many get finished!! I started a card this morning, a personal one, not for me but FOR me to GIVE to a Friend.  Then the window cleaner called, they were next door and asked did I want my windows done, course that was great, now to rush round and clean up after breakfast and clear window sills so they can just come in and get their job done easily!! Had a quick cuppa with them and a catch up as they are not just my window cleaners but good friends. No biscuits or muffins with all having to lose a few lbs between us. :) So off they went to cheer up someone else's windows and left me to figure out where I was before they knocked. Oh yeah off to do more on my card.........phone rings........accounts question!! Oooops thats one of the 7 jobs and I havent even turned on the PC.  So after I sort out the query on accounts I got back to my card and you'll be glad to hear I actually got it finished......it only took me from start to finish and jobs in between 3 1/2 hrs.......not bad goin for a Monday morning!!

A lovely scripture from Isaiah to lift a friend!

I edged the floral butterflies with distress ink and cut them apart and added some gems!

  1. I wanted to have my photos from start to finish in the correct order but wasnt sure how to move the photos around - If anyone has an idea about this I'd love to know for future posts, thanks all. ;)

    1. When you are in your blog and add photos, you need to click on them and then move them around. It can be a bit tricky sometimes but I find that if you start typing your next line of text. Then go back and put the cursor between the two lines, it's easier to get your photo in there where you want it.
