Flying Visit

Hi everyone, sorry I've been such a bad blogger recently but life has been a bit hectic of late. I'm flying in with a very quick post today with my snippets card and heading over to join in the fun with Miss Di and the Playmates over at Pixie's Snippets Playground

I was sorting out some scraps that I had on the table and among them was a bit of card left over from having a play with some Distress Oxides that I thought it would make a perfect background sky for a  die-cut frame I had. I offset it onto the card blank but wasn't pleased with the result so I added some edge strips from a sheet of gold peel-offs, and finished it off with a sentiment from my Sarntangles stamp set.

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today, I really appreciate it. I won't be around for a while but will catch up with you all just as soon as I can.

What a gorgeous card Andrea! Love the background and the white trees in the aperture are one of my favourite styles just now. It would also make a gorgeous Christmas card.

Sorry it's taken me a while to comment - Dudley took a downward turn and has been quite poorly with what our vet says is gastroenteritis. We still feel it was the tick medication that caused it - toxins are a known cause of gastroenteritis. Thankfully he seem to be properly on the mend having had a jab to stop him being sick plus other meds to be taken daiy including anti-biotics and of course all our attention has been focused on him these past few days.

It's really beautiful as a sky, Andrea! The whole card is perfectly composed! You and I share the same sensibilities ~ I would have wanted to even it out, too, lol! Hugs, Darnell

Life just seems so busy recently that time is flying by in the blink of an eye.

Loving the background on your card. It really does look like a beautiful sunset.

I hope that you are OK.
