Hi folks, happy Friday to you all. I would normally be posting a Forgotten Friday post today, but I am blitzing my house, ready for three VIP guests next week, and just haven't had time for a rummage this week. However, if you would like to link your 'Forgotten' makes to this post, I will pop along to your blogs to take a look.
My three friends Elaine, Jo and Lesley are coming to stay, we have a joint blog, Craft Stamping Quartet, which due to various commitments over the past months, we just haven't been able to maintain. We are having some time together, and may actually post some bits and pieces on our blog! Anyway, if you are anything like me, crafting comes first in your life and ahem, housework comes a poor second. However, having three women to stay in my house, has galvanised me into some kind of activity over the last few days, and I've shaken the cobwebs off the mop and duster, and done a bit of cleaning, my Mum would be proud, lol!
I'm very excited that they are coming, as we rarely all get together, sometimes three of us manage a meeting, but to have the four of us in a group at the same time is quite an occasion. We have some great bits and pieces planned, and we will show you some of them on the joint blog, and on our own blogs as well, I'm sure.
Anyway, today I have another card using the Sunny Sunflowers stamp plate from Chocolate Baroque I have used some papers from the A4 'En Francais' paper pad, creating a large pocket. I added a piece of wide brown ribbon and some of the flowers and leaves which I have coloured with Polychromos pencils. I added Glossy Accents in the centres of the flowers.
I used a large tag, and embossed a greeting from the 'Loving Sentiments' stamp plate with vanilla white embossing powder. I then went over the tag with Tea Dye Distress Ink, and edged the tag with Faded Jeans Distress Ink, to tone in with the main card. I added some small strips of torn paper at the bottom and a couple of decoupaged flowers and some leaves. The finishing touch was to add some blue and brown seam binding at the top of the tag.
I hope you will all enjoy your long weekend, and that you have lots of lovely activities planned. Thanks for stopping by, xx
