Life doesn't seem to slow down!

Well, we had the concrete poured for our footings yesterday, which was great, if a little stressful. The concrete lorry had to use a neighbour's drive, as we have very restricted access, and live some distance from the main road. We had to sign our lives away, and agree to pay for any damage caused to his property. I just couldn't watch while the pump lorry, and the concrete lorry reversed up and down inches past his newly constructed garage. It all went smoothly, thank goodness, but my nerves are only just settling down!

I've been working on the cards for the blog hop this week, so I haven't done much other crafting. I did sneak one card in that I can post today, which is a Leanne Ellis design. These stamps are available from Funky Kits and are produced by Sugar Nellie. This particular stamp is called Poise, and she is my favourite. I have used Distress Inks to colour my image, and to soften the edges of my background paper. I have double stamped a Basic Grey swirl stamp in one corner, and then used a crochet flower, a Papermania pearl brad, and a jewellery component to make the flower. The reverse side of some black ribbon, and some textured black card for mounting, completes the card.
Leanne has produced some more drawings recently, and a couple have really caught my eye, which I really hope become rubber stamps.

I also found a picture of Terry and I from the Ball the other week, so you can see my jewellery in it's proper place. Hopefully, Terry won't read the blog, because I've been keeping this photo as a secret to use as something for Father's day. He and I will have been together for 30 years on Saturday; we started seeing each other at school, when we were 15, and we've been together ever since. Anyone who knows him appreciates just what a patient woman I truly am! So I'm hoping to spoil him a bit that day too, just to show him that romance is not dead after all these years.
I'm working tomorrow and Thursday, so probably won't post again until the blog hop, bye for now, Judith x

Gorgeous card, love the delicate colours on the stamped image. You look very glamourous in your ball gown - hope the event was a success and raised lots of money for SADS.
