Good Morning Ladies,
I am really enjoying being back in my Craft Room, I find it so frustrating though that after spending 2 days tidying and decluttering the room looks like it did 2 days ago after 1 afternoon!! You see I am not an 'organised' crafter, I sit there, think of an idea, then gather together the things I 'thing' I need, only to find that something doesn't work so I grab something else and so on and so on......! Although my Craft Trolley is still working really well, having all my tools and adhesive products at hand but not taking up precious room on my desk.
So after creating quite a mess this is card is the result, I decided to make it using the Stampin Up products I bought last year, the dies ......
I used Stamping Up Flourishing Thinlets dies to make the flowers and border, they are made by Sizzix and cut really well, the leaves in the set are my new favourite.
The Sentiment is from Stampin Up Birthdays Blooms Stamp Set, the flower in this set is stunning, I also love the font .
Basically I die cut a card base 7 X 5 1/2 inch, I then added a layer of pretty pink card, the top layer is Linen card with an Oval die cut out of the centre, the sentiment was stamped into the centre of the pink card, added foam tape (for dimension) to the back of the linen card and placed it over the stamped sentiment, I then added some die cut flowers around the aperture and added some of the foliage from the die set, I popped some pretty acrylic flowers and some matching gems around the card. That's about it.
I hope you like it ladies.
Today is Paul's first day off since the 27th, the girls are home today too so we are going to get one more precious family day. Our tree is looking incredibly sad, it is the worst one we've had, the needles haven't dropped it has really drooped though.
So I will be glad to see the back of it, I think we may go back to an artificial tree next year, real trees are getting far too expensive and it seems so sad paying out just to watch the poor thing wilt before our eyes.
I am hoping that those of you feeling fragile are starting to feel a little better, sending gentle hugs to you xxx
Janet, I hope that the first leg of your journey went smoothly xxx
Love and hugs to all of you,
