"Best Wishes"

Hello, how are you??  WOW! was it cold or what today!!!
Thank you for all your lovey comments I read each and everyone.  I try to get back to as many as I can to comment on your work . You are all so very talented, it is great to see what you are creating.  Of course us crafter`s being as we are we love to share and pass on lots of Hints and Tips, from me I thank you all................................
Met Hazel today, we had a good old chat, caught up with all the Gossip!!
We have decided we are going to Birmingham NEC for the Craft Show in November.   We are saving for our holiday in June at the moment so November it will be.

I was trawling and saw a card made using Corner Dies.  You know how it is, it makes you remember to get out the things you have.

Here is today`s experiment, this one actually worked out.  My ideas of late are filling the Paper Bin good job they go off for recycling.  I usually rescue as many "bits" as possible before disposing of what I don`t like unless it is really bad.

Base card approx 7x7 Centura Pearl pierced round the edge
A piece of Centural Pearl I had embossed,  found in my Bit Box
I placed my corners on white card to form a frame
There was one corner left, I rolled this into a cone to pop some flowers in
Once I saw it done I decided to make another two .  There are three rolled cones on this card
I put some Roses, buds and leaves from Wild Orchid Crafts in each
Tied a four loop bow
I added pearls from my stash 
Greeting a Just Rite stamp cut using a Spellbinder Die
I originally stamped the greeting straight onto the card , made a right mess of it.  I covered it up this way, worked out fine I think

That`s it for today
Thank you for popping in I really appreciate it
I`ll be back tomorrow with something else
