Hello to all that are visiting today, I've been in my craft room trying to put some bits and pieces away. My huge cupboard with 26 drawers in it has been moved and I've now put all the drawers back in, a huge job as quite a few had to be emptied before carrying as they were too heavy, especially the ones with my punches in. We put the hutch upside down in the end and I've got a two shelf cupboard on top of it that normally has magazines, card, quilling, iris folding and paper embroidery books and patterns in it. I'm not sure whether they will go back up there or on the hutch. Might put the beads up the top instead as I have to cull two other cupboards from the room.
The whole family got together and our friends Doug and Joyce to say goodbye to my daughter's ex-boyfriend (he's a lovely guy and they are still friends) - 15 of us including the 3 children. We enjoyed a meal and a chat out at the hotel, he leaves for Perth on Monday.
Well, I managed to sit down and find papers and card amongst the mess to finish off this card, I coloured the image which is from Meljen's this afternoon at my craft group and then put it all together tonight.
The real red is all the go on my last few cards so here it is again as the basecard and matted behind the DP - from The Paper Collection , Papercraft Essentials, a free gift with a magazine I bought last year. I've used a Nellie Snellen die to cut the white heart and also the red and two circle punches for the sentiment which comes from SU. Ribbon is from stash, LOL, I've just reorganised about 3 drawers of ribbon! I added a bit of bling to finish it off.
Well I hope you enjoy my card and find something to interest you here on my blog, thanks for all the wonderful comments.
Sorry, just checked the pic and it is shaded on the right hand side I suppose because the ribbon is higher there it must have let a bit of light come in. Okay I went back and did another scan, but it's still not right but the best I can do.
