Good Morning Ladies ,
How was the start of your Easter weekend? We spent the day mostly in the garden, it was lovely and warm.
Our first card today is Janets first attempt at Groovi, the card has a pretty blended background on to which Janet has placed her beautifully embossed 'Groovi' piece, which features two stunning corner pieces around a decorated central circle.
Janet you would never guess that was your first attempt, you are clearly a natural 'parcher' ! I know pat has said that the 'White work' was tricky and very time consuming. Have you bought many plates etc?. I can't wait to see your next piece . Thank you so much for sharing it. XXX
The lovely covered Notebook is from my swap partner Sue Bishop over on our 'Riley &Rose' facebook group.
Sue has covered the notebook in the most amazing cover that she has personalised with our Group name, the cover was made using the 'Faux Leather' technique and let me tell you it really feels like soft leather, if you zoom in you can see the texture. Inside thete are two notebooks and two pens, a little book of sticky notes too. The outside is finished with a pretty dangle charm.
It's an incredibly detailed project and i love it xxx
Michele has very kindly shared some of her Animal themed cards to give you all a little inspiration for this week's challenge.
Such a lovely assortment of creatures, I think my favourites are the Owls and those darling hedgehogs.
Thank you so much my lovely for inspiring us all. XXX
