Something a little different...


Hi Best Blogging Buddies

Well I did a crazy thing the other day, I joined Pinterest... and I think it's going to become a bit of an addiction (as if I didn't have enough!)!! 

Anyway, whilst browsing boards.... I came across a fabulously designed card, and I'm sorry, but I can't remember whose pinboard it was on!  But I liked it, so clicked on it to find out who'd designed it so I could ask to have a go!  It led to a blog called Blush Crafts and a very nice blogger called Vicky.... who was happy that I tried a version of it.  And I did......  and I'm not happy with it!  Vicky's is so much nicer.....  so I may just give up on this one and go back to image colouring!! hehe!



I think the card is self explanatory.... a bit of machine sewing for the stems, a Martha Stewart Hyacinth punch for the flowers, and I added handcut leaves to mine as my card did look bare with just the flowers -whereas Vicky's didn't...   Hmmmmmmf!!!  Ooooh and the sentiment is from Pink Petticoat btw.

My OH didn't think I would blog it as I'm not that pleased with it... but I decided to show my poor attempts as well as my good ones! 

Take care all
Hugs

  16. Hi Christine, I think it's really pretty. I do have a very soft spot for clean and simple cards and this one is just great. Really elegant and so pretty.

    I think it's good to step outside of our comfort zone, you never know you might find something you like.

    I also agree that it's good to blog cards you don't like very much along with the ones you are proud of - it's a much more rounded look at the whole person and I like that.

  24. Hi Christine - this is definitely not a "poor attempt" - you are far too hard on yourself. I absolutely love the CAS design, and the stitching adds an extra touch of beautiful texture. Love it!
