Hmmm, carding first thing in the morning and having to make a decision. Alright, I'm up for a circle, even though I don't own any sort of a machine to cut out frilly edges like that. Good old krinkly edge scissors for me. Does this age me, dear? The newer generation have all them fancy schmancy machines you just push a button and out comes a perfect scallopy edge cardstock. Ah well, I'll have long, lithe, supple strong fingers while theirs will run to fat like little pork sausages (apologies to vegetarians)
The little letters were from Fiskars, the "enjoy the journey" tag from Making Memories. The rest were all gifts materials (they ignored the "don't feed the crafter sign hanging around my neck) from generous and thoughtful relatives.
If you check the comments later chances are someone will volunteer they were the ones to give these supplies to me. I'm certainly grateful and indebted. :)
I came up with a brilliant idea last week and simply had to try it. I'm pretty happy with the results. I created a "bow" or "flower" using a simple nylon scarf which I bought at the thrift store. I've actually made two but will share the other in a day or two when my blog bin of interesting subjects has ran dry. Might tempt you to come back and see!
And here's what the card and bow look like up close. You know I like close - don't get TOO close or your retina will stick on the screen dear.
I'm sort of chuffed about this! I did not have the heart to tell the lady at the thrift store that I would be chopping this scarf up. She kept on about how lovely it was etc. She's not getting this card!
My lovely Sister Nina made her Mojo out of some templates she used with her Cricut machine - I whipped up some png's and they worked like a dream! I'm beyond puffing up here. You also might find some nice cards at the other blogs of Judy and Samantha - what a crafty family we be!
Brrrr - time for some warm sunshine around here I'd say. Though I was very humbled by someone pointing out how nice we really have it compared to some places... like the little corner of the BC where Dave and Neti live, they say tomorrow they will have blizzard conditions!
The Kodak company. Truly exceptional, over the top, wonderful, professional service. I'm a customer for life. They've consistantly turned every unfortunate incident with my printer into a positive experience. Besides that the ink is dirt cheap and does a beautiful job.
Whats some LIKES, DISLIKES and IMPRESSED things in your life this week?
