Ring a Ring a Roses

a pocket full of posies

atishoo  atishoooo we all fall down

Goodness that wee rhymn was a blast from the past and a well loved game I played a looooong time ago when I was just a young lass!!

Tonight in the shed I finished off the card I started yesterday to go with the glassine bag I made (It got extra’s added to it too)!

So here is the finished card..

Supplies List..

  • Cardstock base is pink pirouette from Stampin Up
  • My Minds Eye Patterned Paper think its lost and found pocket of posies
  • Baby Pink pleated Silk Ribbon
  • Digital Collage image from Etsy Seller : iralamijashop
  • Martha Stewart Doily Lace Punch
  • 2 x Vintage Pink Buttons
  • Linen Thread
  • Scortape
  • Stampin Up Dimensional Adhesive

I switched the peachy seam binding over for some light pink gingham ribbon, it ties in better with the gingham patterned paper and I also punched out a butterfly and gave it a bit of sparkle with some pink 3mm rhinestones 🙂


Glassine Bags, Tags ‘n’ Cards

Hi everyone.. hope your having a good start to your week… glad to say i’m feeling a tad better than I did on Sunday with that awful 24hr virus that is doing the rounds.. it leaves you aching from head to toe!!

Here’s what i made yesterday afternoon and also this evening…

I decorated a tiny tag and glassine bag… cute or what 😉

then tonight I decorated some large glassine bags and made cards to go with them.. and it is also in keeping with the Use it Up Pledge, as I used things that were lying around on my desk..


The I started to make a pink one, i got the envelope finished but not the card.. its only half done, I hope to get that finished tomorrow..

in fact now that I’m sitting here looking at the photograph of the glassine bag, i’m going to change the seam binding over for some baby pink, it’ll lok better as the above looks too peachy to me.. what do you think?
