"Single Rose"

Hello Blog friends, followers and all who have clicked on my link to see what I have been up too.
Thank you for popping in, I love to have you here.  Thank you for all the lovely comments you leave.  
I have apologise to all my new followers who appeared while I was on holiday.   I forgot to mention you in my last post, please forgive me.
Not a lot going on here, the weather is a bit off.  Great excuse for an extra bit of crafting I think.  Oh! well change that.   John Jnr just phoned to say they will be along.  Audrey is working, so it is lunch here at the Ranch today.
Hazel (hazelsbasketsofjoy) gave me and idea for a project this morning.  I was chatting with her about the beautiful Gift Bag she had posted.  Hazel mentioned her Die might look good made with the Faux Leather.  That started the wheels going, I will make a couple of A4 sheets to match and try making one of "my" style bags with it. Watch this space.........!!!
Here is my card for today:-
Made and not one new piece of card was used in the process.


Base card approx 4 x 6 an off cut from a previous project
Letterpress effect, an A4 piece I did, it was not as good as it should have been.  I rescued the best part.
Scrap of white card, scored a few times then punched along the bottom with a MS Punch
Rose, SB Blossom Five, leaves an old Creallies Die from Joanna Sheen.  Fern type leaves and butterflies MS Punches all cut from scraps of yellow/cream card

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Hope to see you again soon
Hugs

    I have piles of off cut card that I really should start using up but you know whenever I need some card for a die or something I either never have the piece big enough or its not in the colour I want or needed!!! lol!
