"One from the Bit Box"

Hello follow bloggers, friends and visitors welcome to my Blog.  Thank you for all the wonderful comments on my recent cards, I really appreciate each and every one.
Weather here in the North East of Scotland is beautiful, sunny if a tad!! cold.  The hills are covered thick with Snow, cars have a crusty frost on them that is gradually melting in the sunshine.
Nothing much planned here today, I have a few things to catch up on then I hope to "play".  
When I was clearing up some old crafty stuff the other week I found something I had bought at a Hobbycraft Show.  I think it was last October, it could have been the March one!!!  Brusho Paints/inks, I watched a demonstration, thought they were great.  Took them home, looked at them, forgot what was said and done at the Show,  Put them in a cupboard to deal with at a later date ...... I think it is now time to deal with them don`t you???
I did have time to play during the week.  I decided to start with my "Bit Box" there were a few bits in there that I could see would make some cards for general use.
Here is the first one I did:-

Just Bits of card and a small scrap of that beautiful Card from a "Works Pad"
I have kept the card flat for posting, have not added any sentiment till I know what it will be need for.
Simple and it used up bits I would normally just throw away.  Well I would normally pop them in a bag for the School.  They still get plenty so no worries that they are loosing out.
That`s it for today, thank you for calling by I appreciate it you taking time to do that
Have a wonderful weekend.
Till next time

  1. God Morn Patricia, beautiful floral card. Many folk are using brusho paints, so there is bound to be a You Tube tut on them.
    Gorgeous sunny day up here, getting the washing out and loving the peace and quiet, Alistair enroute to Glasgow airport for his trip to Greece, lovely, have a super weekend, Kate x

  2. Hello Patricia, I love it when you use things from your "bits box",. I open mine and find "bits" ha ha. Still haven't really done anything with them. I now have 5 "bits boxes". Must try harder is my motto for today!!!!

  3. Looks gorgeous Patricia, xxx

  4. Very pretty card Patricia...its nice when you can use up bit from your 'bits' box...mine never seems to go down though!


  5. This is so pretty Patricia, gorgeous colours and design.

  6. A great use of bits Patricia and not adding the sentiment is genius in my book, I always add sentiments straight away, consequently I have lots of thank you cards and thinking of you....not always what you want in a rush.
    The rose paper is beautiful.
    Good to have you back. Hugs Erika. x

  7. Hi Patricia what a wonderful card and the design is wonderful too It is so nice to have you back you have been missed.

  8. Good afternoon Patricia it never fails to amaze me just what you can do with things from your bit box, I have several bit baskets but they are never as helpful as your box! I really must have a day when I concentrate and use some bits up!

  9. Such a pretty card from your bit box Patricia! I found a stamp I bought at a Doncaster show last year that I forgot about lol xxx huggles Sue xx

  10. Hi Patricia, This is lovely, no-one would be any the wiser that these came out of your 'bit box', I have got more and more 'bit boxes' and never seem to make anything with mine, you put me to shame hahaha.
    I got a box of Brusho's last year and as yet I haven't done anything with mine either, although I have watched lots of videos on Youtube, I haven't had the time to 'play' yet !!!
    We have had all 4 Seasons in the same day here haha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  11. Hi Patricia.
    Lovely floral card. Like so many of u have said lots of bit boxes and I'm no different lol. I do need to get my finger out I have so many bits and I don't like throwing away anything lol
    I'm a bit of a hoarder hee hee xx

  12. this is so very pretty Patricia - gorgeous make! Hugs rachel x

  13. Hi Patricia

    I always get a great feeling of satisfaction from creating something from my leftovers .. .. and I bet you did too after creating this little beauty.

    Looking forward to seeing what you do with your Brushos. I have looked at them a few times but have managed to resist .. .. so far!!

    Have a good bank holiday weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  14. Looks beautiful Patricia, cannot beat a pretty floral card.
    Still have no Brusho`s, wonder how you will get on with them.

  15. Hi Patricia
    I thought you were going to say you had painted that rose with the Brushos lol!
    Pretty card which will be suitable for many an occasion.

  16. Always love your roses, and what a beautiful snippet card! Love the way you've framed this pretty image...had a laugh about your brusho demo and then forgetting what they showed you. Hope you'll hunt them out for a play soon, as they really are such fun to make backgrounds (all I know how to do with them!!!) Eileen Godwin has 4 terrific videos showing useage, and I am certain you'll have fun. TFS & Hugs.

  17. We started the day with about 3 claps of thunder and held our breath but the wet stuff is coming down now and I hope it will continue all day if it likes. We so need it but me thinks I will have to turn the heater on soon as it has brought cold air with it. We have been so spoilt with sunshine and balmy days but winter is lurking in the background.
    What a lovely card to make from your bit box. Beautiful roses and love the frame.

  20. Morning Patricia,
    Love your bit box card. I have the Brusho's but not used them very much.

  21. Love this card Patricia. I have also got the Brusho paints and not done much with them yet. What I need is time. Needed elsewhere too much at the moment. Granddaughter's birthday today so off to see her plus eldest grandson and Gtgranddaughter. The sun is shining. Should be a lovely day.
