"From that Bundle"

Hello Blog friends, hope you are all well. 
Thank you for calling by today, I love that you take the time to do that.
I have not been crafting today, I have bust a Blood Vessel in my right eye.  It is not in any way sore , it just looks as though I have gone 3 rounds with Mike Tyson.   I am finding it very annoying, cant see that great out of it.  Once the blood starts to drain away it will be fine.  I have had this before, usually at a time of stress....................absolutely no stress at the moment.   Excitement maybe, only 7 more sleeps till Hazel and I go off on our holiday together, just the two of us.    A whole week of nothing to do and all day to do it.............fantastic. 
I told you all, I have done away with my "Bit Box" and making a determined effort to use as many of  my Bits as possible.
I have an A4 plastic box with no lid.  I am putting the bits in this during the week then it is sorted out at the end of each week to make what I can.   I will sell them quite cheaply at the Tearoom.  After all they are made from left over bits.  The rest of the bits "if any" will go in a box for the School.   This is just one of  the cards I made  yesterday before my eye started to bother me.

Today`s card 6 x 6 white card
Piece of stripped card Hunkydory from the Freebe in a magazine
Piece of pink card I had embossed
Pink spotted paper
Image was stamped 3 times on a piece of leftover white 160gsm paper.  I coloured in some of it, popped glue on other bits and sprinkled with glitter
Bits of  SB border
Ribbon and a triple bow topped with a pearl............done!!!

Thank you for popping in, if you have left a comment I really appreciate that, I do read them all.
That`s it for today

  5. Hi Patricia, hope your eye improves before you go on holiday, at least it does not hurt, you can wear subglasses to hide it. Another lovely card, you seem to pull them out of that box with ease. Hazel is nearly there with her blog. So looking forward to seeing her creations when she gets there.
