Good morning my dear blog friends
Well the morning has started off dry so I am keeping everything crossed that it stays that way. Mind you it was dry yesterday, it just got a bit windy; so much so infact it blew our ladder down from beside the tree and smashed the corner of the water bucket clean off. I didn't think the wind was that strong at all but I think I was too busy beforehand to hear it (busy having forty winks with my grandson!! lol).
I hope this dry and seemingly pleasant day finds you all in good spirits and hopefully good health too.
I am still coughing myself, but feeling alot brighter today and ready to get going again I think. I hate being poorly; I get cross with myself for not being able to do what I want to or for feeling more tired than usual. Thank goodness I don't get ill like this very often. I haven't seen a doctor for anything like this in over 3years, so I cannot complain.
Anyway to todays card. I have been playing with the border dies again and this time I have created two smaller pyramid shapes. I was so pleased with how they turned out I had to make a card immediately. So what do you think, worth the effort or not?
If anyone is interested in the places that I found the cheapest for lace, here are some links to help you. They are Buy It Now items as I never bid for items like this.
I am sorry to say but the beautiful lace I showed in the picture for the Commenters Candy, has sold out at the moment in the Buy It Now section. They only have one bundle left but it is being auctioned, if you're still interested however, take a look HERE )
Laces Galore Ebay Shop (This is the shop link)
Dovecraft 35mm Eyelet Lace (£3.80 for 10metres)
Beautiful 2" cotton lace (£2.25 for 5metres)
Soft 1.75" Nottingham lace (£1.99 for 5metres)
Raggy Doll Ebay Seller (This link takes you straight to the seller full listings)
42mm Flat Lace (£1.35 for 3metres)
32mmWhite or 38mm Ivory Flat Lace (£1.25 for 3metres)
(All prices are without Postage/shipping)
Finally the place I found the large flatbacked pearls. They have two colours and both have the option for you to choose up to 14mm in size. I have both colours and 4sizes and I think they are lovely.
Ivory Flatback Pearls
White Flatback Pearls
(A tip for anyone new to using Ebay, if you purchase several items from one Ebay seller/shop they will recalculate the postage and so reduce the cost. I ordered 4items all marked as £1.20each P&P, when I contacted them for a price they only charged me approx £2 total P&P. So don't worry if you see lots of individual P&P costs, they only apply if you buy different items from different sellers.)
Well thats it for now but before I go I would like to ask a favour; please if you can, would you pop back later after 4pm as I have a post that I think will be of great interest to you.
Right then, I am off for a rest now, so I will speak to you all later, if you can make it.
Have a lovely day. (The sun is beautiful here in South Wales at the moment!)
