...Put the flags Out!!
Hello to all you lovely crafter's working away on a Saturday,
although it doesn't feel like work! cause we love it soooooo
much!! Right? Right! Here is a little card I have made for a
neighbour who has been waiting 11 months for his wife
to return! and she finally arrived on Friday!
so made this little card with the saying at the top as I
thought it appropriate.
Here it is in the making.....Hooary????
Papers are from that lush PM Rose Garden, can't get
enough of those. Think I might have to decorate the
bedroom with them!! ha ha, don't think hubby would be
too pleased waking up to all those roses around him somehow!
Shame, might have to convince him it would be like bringing
the garden inside!!
Stamped letters are from Hero Arts stamped with Fushia
Pink Staz On. Scored at the top as you can see and fixed
to ribbon with ds tape. I have used 3d foam pads on the
back of the flags for effect. Sentiment done on P.C.
Now I have just been informed by a reliable source (Thanks
Haze x) that over on Daring Cardmakers Blog their challenge
this week is called A Bunting we will go and that's want they
want to see on your cards, so am going to enter this card.
Now whilst I'm here I must show you all this fabby doo
idea that I found whilst blog hopping and I have tried
and tested it and it is the easiest thing to make and must
be shared...
So what you do is find an old favourite T that you have
had since way back when that you can either no longer
fit into or just not the appropriate attire any more!, but
you just can't bear to part with it, right!!! See below...
Then turn it inside out and sew along the bottom of the T.
Turn back to right side and cut off arms including seams and
also neck, pull bottom of T holding onto new arm holes and the
seams will automatically roll under.
Voila! a fabby, trendy piece of nostalgia for you to hoard
or carry all your craft shopping about it in!!
Oh look who popped into view, can't miss a photo of my little
As I was saying, Voila, holds lots and lots of things too.
TFL, enjoy your weekend, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Definitely not "dull and boring" at all - it's sweet and pretty and shows off the paper and the bunting perfectly
