to Heal your Heart…

Hi everyone 🙂  Hope you all settled back into work today after the easter holidays…

I made another card similar to the one I made yesterday.. and boy was this one a marathon! it took me 3 hours to make it

There is a lot of painting, inking, machine stitching and paper cutting in it to be fair lol

So here it is

I used the paper line from Basic Grey “Hello Luscious”

There is also Glitz Design Patterned paper on the card too, mainly on the inside panels

I also used may arts lace ribbon cut in half as the closures for the card

The I added some hearts, tags and buttons to the front of the card to finish it off…

I will come back tomorrow and add a full supplies list, as its well past midnight here and I have work in the morning 🙂

It has been a glorious spring day here in Scotland today… fingers crossed it stays like this for a long time 🙂

I finally got my laptop fixed, been lost without it… and whilst it was going through the fixing process, I had a tidy up in my shed, put a lot of things away and also had a good old spring clean!

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?
