My Teal Floral Card
Some pretty things
Some MDF shapes to Alter
A few of my Farnborough buys
Some Bargain bits and Gorgeous stamps
Good Morning Ladies,
How is it Friday already???? It doesn't seem 5 minutes since we were planning to go to Farnborough! My shopping from Farnborough is pictured above.
Nice treat today as Paul is around because he goes onto nights tonight, its lovely to have a day to ourselves.
Onto my card, I am not sure what inspired me to create this card, I think it was the flowers, I was having a little sort out of my flowers to make an order with Wild Orchid Craft, wow that shopping basket soon mounts up!! Looking forward to my 'happy post'!
I took the flowers and pulled together a few bits that complimented them, I die cut the Creative Expressions Caribbean Background to use as a frame for my flower arrangement. After placing the flowers I added some white pearls around the frame and matching teal/aqua pearls on the outer areas. I tied an organza bow, added some pearl string and some matching narrow ribbon and a Decorative Pearl embellishment to the centre. I hope you like it xx
My Shopping Confessions this week are mostly from Farnborough, I wanted some MDF shapes to decorate so I visited the MDF man and bought some hearts, tags and a butterfly, I am looking forward to making them look pretty!
I didn't really go too crazy at Farnborough, I had a list that included Embossing powder, some pearls, scissors, some dies from Pink Frog crafts to make some flowers,
I wanted a 'Wink of Stella' clear pen to add some sparkle to flowers etc. I got a bargain Tonic sentiment die, some white card, its so frustrating that Anna Marie changed their 300gsm white card supplier as I loved that card, it was perfect for everything from stamping to die cutting and making card bases, the one they have now is slightly textured, and cracks when creased, so the hunt is on for a new 'perfect card', we did get some at the show so watch this space for an update.
The 'Every Crafts A Pound' stall had to be visited for some more amazing scissors, flat back pearls and some spray ink. I got some of Sue's new stamps too, which I can't wait to use. The Ross Paper stand had some really pretty sparkly Tulle, I couldn't resist so I bought some pink and white. I tried to find them online to see if you could order their products but that don't seem to exist!
The top photo is the parcel from Jennings Boutique, some really pretty things but a good few things missing, I have now been refunded though.
Pat, thinking of you and Pete today, love and hugs to both of you xxx
I hope you all have a good day,
Love and Hugs
