Hello and welcome to my corner of Blogland.
I can not believe it ... I have 100 followers. Thank you Margie for joining me on my travels through the wonderful world of Blogging and becoming my 100th follower. Thank you all for continuing to support me, I really appreciate it.
I have seen so many great creations "Works of Art" a great many of them. Gained so many snippets of information and inspiration that have inspired me to keep going. I have also met met so many wonderful, generous people. I treasure your friendship each and every one of you. A few I have actually met and some I know I will meet in November.
When I started my Blog June last year I never for one minute thought I would ever reach 100.
To celebrate I have a collection of Crafty Goodies to give away. I will put into a pot the names of any "followers" who leave a comment on my Blog this week. John will draw one out on Friday evening.
I have been very busy making Gift Bags. I took 6 along to the Tearoom last Monday, they had all gone by Thursday afternoon. I made another 5 between Saturday and this morning. John came through while I was up to my elbows in "Bits of Bags & Glue" . Told me to finish off the bags I was doing, he would take me along to the Tearoom. I could put the bags in the cabinet, that way he could get some "lunch". Just got them in the cabinet when a lady bought one. Elaine texted about 4.30pm to say another 2 had gone. Oh! Man! I am getting a bit sick of making bags. However I will have plenty money to go back and get "the bag". Will that please you Heather.....lol!!! She gave me telling off for deciding I really did not need another handbag.
Today`s card is a little different even for me. I was looking on a CD for some backing paper when I spied some with the turned corner effect. Felt that was a bit old hat, decided I would give it a new look. Did not see any papers I wanted to work with on the CD. I took a brave decision and have actually cut into my Heartfellt Creation Delicate Aster Pad that I have been admiring and caressing for about a month. I did have to have a seat and a drink of water to recover from the trauma.........!!!
Base, white card I cut to approx a DL size
Two sheets of paper from the Pad. One for the base and the other for the two layers
On the long side I cut at approx the middle of the top two layers almost into the middle of the pieces
These are double sided papers, the top two layers are from one sheet. One facing one way next layer facing the other. I rolled the paper over a Kebab Stick gluing as I went along
I cut the flower from the base sheet. What you see is the reverse side
Cut some leaves using a Crealies Leaf Die
Popped a gem in the centre of the flower
Have not put any greeting on I will leave it till I know what I want to use it for
That`s it for today
Remember if you visit please leave a comment. You never know you might be the winner of the Goodies............
