I wasn't surprised to see it's been a week since my last post - have been struggling to find my mojo and to pick myself up from yet another disappointment after a further viewing of our home resulted in the same feedback from the estate agents - 'the bedrooms are too small'. Our home is a 3 bedroom cottage with 3 reception rooms built circa 1820 with a complete self contained annexe (which Mum used to live in)and the estate agent provides a glossy brochure complete with floor plan and room measurements.......... so why when the measurements are there do people waste my time (and theirs) by coming to look anyway? How big does a bedroom have to be - if you can get a bed, wardrobes etc in it what else do you need???? I have lived here quite contentedly for almost 25 years and now there's just the two of us we need to get something with not as many rooms and a smaller outdoor space. It makes me mad then depressed when I keep having people traipsing through my private space when they obviously are just 'carpet treaders'. Read the damn brochure and look at the floor measurements you idiots!
So I made a couple of cards this week, neither I think are very inspiring - they're both destined for the 'Pink Box' and I hope someone thinks they're OK!
One of them fits the challenge this week at Less is More which is to include metal somewhere on your card.
I layered the die cut from white pearlised card over some gold card.
I forget the last time I used a dreaded (cannot bear to say it really) - peel off - but as I can't print in gold then needs must!
I opted for the word 'Celebrate' instead of congrats etc as I thought this card could be used for a special birthday or occasion as well as wedding or anniversary.
