Good morning and welcome to my Blog, I am so glad you popped in for a visit. If you have time please leave a wee message so that I know you called, I love to read them all.
Only a couple more sleeps then Hazel and I are off on our annual holiday together YES!!!
My card today is one I made from my box of "projects half done" Oh! My! Word! I had to do this or I would have needed a bigger box!!!
Base card 8 x 8 - Joanna Sheen
Pink card, I use this colour of card a lot so there are always plenty of bits
Polka dot printed from Rob Adams Polka Dot Check and Tartan Paper CD
Floral from a Nitwit Collection download, bits of both papers used on previous cards
Flourishes cut from bits using a Crealies Die - Joanna Sheen
Spellbinder Bitty Blossoms Die for all the flowers using just bits
A few pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts also a few punched butterflies
I decided to give this card a Shabby Chic look, not really my scene but I do like to try things. I tore the floral paper, distressed the edges of the Polka dot.
Once I put them together I was not so sure about the torn bit so decided to cover most of it with the roses.
I love making flowers so I cut out loads. Because the embossing on these does not have to be too deep I put 2 pieces of paper together for each flower. Lay all the dies on, I get far more done on one pass through my Calibur.
People ask how I manage to get my petals on my roses so rounded - I use my Round Nosed Jewelery Pliers to manipulate the petals once they are dry.
If any of my usual followers are wondering if Elaine liked her gift, guess what!!!.......................she called me on her way home to Perthshire from Newcastle to say she would not make it. Elaine and her hubby had gone off on Monday morning for a few days, to let Elaine do some shopping, a treat for her birthday. Oh! Man! can Elaine shop!!!! when we go on trips to the USA she always gets an extra baggage allowance. She is coming this evening instead.
That`s it for today
Thank you for stopping by I really do appreciate it
