Hi Best Blogging Buddies
Just a quickie from me today, as I'm still not well with this cough etc.... not sleeping much at night so am cream crackered in the day! Quick apologies here too as I'm not getting to do all my commenting... I've really not been up to it.... But, in the words of Arnold S....... 'I'll be back!!'
Anyway, a friend of mine rang a couple of days back to tell me that her daughter had just got engaged, so I put together a quickie card. I chose to use an idea from a card by Mandi from Less is More - she'd used something similar in the shape of a butterfly a week or so back, for a new beginnings card. I just tweaked the shape and used different flowers... and I was happy with the result! I diecut a heart shape - then used a Woodware multi-flower punch (Christmas Rose), but only used the smallest flower - bit fiddly getting the card just under the small hole, but worth it! I used a pearlescent cardstock for the flowers. Then I embossed them to curve them into the shape, added gems in the centre, and stuck them all over the heart! Simples...... as my favourite little merekat would say!
Materials: MFT Heart Shaped Die (second to smallest of the set)
I printed the word in French Script font on thePC, then used my brand new Stamping Up Word Window punch....... to give it the very CAS look. Hope you like!
Now - a very quick look at the new stash I bought at the Harrogate show. I know I'd promised to do this sooner, but I've also had problems uploading pics ...... so anyway, it's here now....
It was a fabulous show as always - I met up with the lovely Elaine from A Technophobe's Blog (whose hubby apparently passed this cold on to me.... gee thanks Phil...) and we had a nice natter and a catch up. Btw, she can't really call herself a technophobe now, as she can handle an IPhone with the best! And the above is what jumped into my shopping bag before I got back to the car! (Well OK, the LOTV stamps I bought at the LOTV shop a couple of days previous...) As you can see, I got lots of ribbons and gems from Mei Flower and Hobby House, some fab new Memory Box dies, a mahoosive doily die from Cheery Lyn, some pre-scored and cut stepper type blanks from Which Craft....... and a few other goodies too...... Most still to be played with when I feel better!
Right.....I have a hairdressers appt in an hour or so, tho I really don't feel like going, I'm DESPERATE as my grey parting is getting ever wider! So needs must!
Hugs to all and Happy Crafting
