Post `s

Hi everyone but you will have to bear with me this week ,I have a hectic week a head ,Back up to my daughters today ,then again on Sunday as its her last night in their home so have to dismantle the beds and the cot ,take curtains down you all will know the drill but with two little ones it`s hard for them .They don`t get into their new home till the middle of October, her life then gets complicated she will stay in my nephews flat,but go up to watford and stay with good friends on Tuesday night so Bethan can still go to pre-school to try and keep her in some sort of routine ,Dad will be stay there during the week and coming to the flat at weekends ,
I have family here on Thursday - Saturday  as some of my old blog friends will know I lost my Brother in May he was cremated in Blackpool but we did managed to get his ashes from his estranged wife.
I have so struggled since then ,we was going to scatter his ashes in the golf course he use to play when he was here ,but I found that difficult as I would never be able to go and talk to him ,the place where we could scatter his ashes in the cemetery was not very nice ,so we had a discussion with the family and decided to in turn his ashes ,this then caused more problems his ashes had to go away to be changed to a casket ,then August was out the question as it was our wedding anniversary people on holiday Vicar as well ,So it is going to be on Friday 14th then he will be at rest  over looking the Bay and the golf course I`m sure he would like this .Sorry its a long Post but I needed to get it of my chest ,I will try and look at your blogs , Hugs to all my followers See you when I can ,I have got some cards done but not  taken any photo`s.

The cut out card

I thought I would place the die on the card where I could use the off cut  for another card which Sue Wilson had done on one of her post , but I think I have used a to darker card base for this card ,but I have done another  card this will probably be my next blog ,So here is the card I know there will be some negative comments on this one .

I have used holly motifs & accents in cream card ( from the neutral pack) to go with the ribbon   On the accents I used 2 and turned them up to face one another and glued them at the points,
I have used Cosmic shimmer pearl glue ,Fire brick red for distressing on Holly motif on the ribbon ,
Flat back pearls from hobby craft ,
the paper behind the cut out is free from a mag I got . The rest of card is from Papermill when they had there shops , I`m getting really low on this card stock .

Thanks for stopping by it means so much to me .
