A work in progress

Evening Everyone
I hope you have all been enjoying another lovely sunny day. I'm not good in the sun so it was probably just as well that I was inside again at the show at Ally Pally.
Here is my little area all set up and ready to get to work. It was a bit of a squeeze but good fun as always. I haven't managed to get any cards finished yet, just lots and lots of bits, hence the work in progress lol.
This is a card that I finished just before the show for a friend of mine to give to his wife. It uses another of the lovely Lili of the Valley cute squares. I added a few new ones to my stash while I was there, well it would be rude not to don't you think?
They are pre-coloured, which is not my usual thing, but they are fantastic when time is of the essence. I have matched the elements of the card to the colour of the topper.
I have trimmed away the top of the square and cut around the images with my craft knife. I have embossed this section from the rear and added silicone when it is attached to the card. I've also added some stardust pen to the hair and flowers.
Kevin decided that although it was for a very special birthday, his wife may not appreciate her age being added so we decided to go for 'You are Special' instead. A wise choice I think given how some ladies feel about their age.
I added a large number of flowers to my stash this weekend, all sorts of colours and sizes so I should be set up for a long time to come. Of course I'm bound to find a colour that I don't have at the next show, so I will just have to have it won't I :)
I will try and get a couple of bits finished tomorrow. I have taken the day off. A wise precaution after seven days of very early starts don't you think. I have to say I am really looking forward to a lie in, so God help the Grandchildren and next doors dog if they wake me up too early lol.
Better close now.
Love and hugs
