Good Morning and welcome!!
Up very early this morning, still not quite daylight so looks rather dull out there.
Nothing much on for today that I know of at the moment, will see what happens when "Sleeping Beauty" wakens, that`s hubby John by the way........................!!!!
My card today was inspired by something I saw the other day when I was in Blairgowrie shopping. There is a little shop that does, making curtains, cushions and these material Banners for all occasions, rather American in some ways I would say. Anyway, in the window they had these really nice Canvases with initials on them decorated with buttons, rather expensive they were. I thought Mmmm!! buttons!! I have loads, not enough of any one colour to make one of my Button Necklaces but enough for things like that. When I got back home I had a little rummage, in the Button Jar, I just love! stirring all the buttons in the jar, here is what came it.
Base card 5 x 7 approx cut from A3 Centura Pearl
Pink card from stock, scalloped edge done with a Spellbinder Edge-abilities die
A page torn and distressed from my English /Turkish Dictionary
(Did not do me that much good when we lived there so might as well put it to good use now)
A heart using a Die I have no idea who`s it is or where I got it
Buttons from my Button Box
Piece of pink ribbon and a heart charm from stash
Sentiment done on computer
The Beaded heart is one of a few I made yesterday. I am getting stock ready for the Craft Fair Hazel and I have a table at, on 25th August in the village at Glamis Castle. I just thought the colours went together.
That`s it for today
Thank you for looking in today it is much appreciated.
