Good morning and welcome to my Blog today, thank you so much for stopping by I really do appreciate it.
Today as I look out the front of my house I see the hills clear and bright, look out the back....no hills can been seen for storm clouds, goodness knows what we will get. Certainly feel we have had more than enough Monsoon style rain, the showers we had all day yesterday were horrendous. Hazel and I had to have another cuppa to pass time till we could get to our cars yesterday, any excuse for more chat!!!!
I was rummaging in one of my boxes the other day and found a few things I forgot I had, does that sound familiar?? The four buttons mounted on the little card are actually beads, I bought them thinking I could use then on a pendant, the holes were far too small to get wire through. I had put then away, with the big brads and the little lace heart that are also on the card, to use sometime....now found and used.
Base card 6x6 from Joanna Sheen
Pink card from stock
Backing paper printed from MCS Floriography CD 2
Card with the buttons is just a scrape piece I cut to size
I distressed the edges and squiggled a border round added a flourish and the word Buttons
Buttons, Brads, Lace Heart and border Lace all from a Bit Box
Organza Ribbon tied in a triple loop bow using my trusty home made Bowmaker
Sentiment done on computer
I am going to try and enter this in the Ribbon Girls Challenge for August
I am not good on the computer, as a matter of fact I am rather stupid when it comes to things like this but I will have a go and see what happens. I "can" actually read, but am hopeless at reading technical instructions. Give me a complicated knitting pattern, a sewing pattern I manage those no problem. Never mind the worst that can happen is it does not work......................
That`s it for today
Hope to see you again soon
