Since my last post (was it really such a long time ago?) I have travelled to Devon, Dorset, Hertfordshire, Wiltshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Somerset and Wales (TWICE!).
I have had four days at home and tomorrow it's back to Wales before going on to Warwickshire, Suffolk and Norfolk. After that I am home for a entire week before off to Leamington Spa for the month of the National Championships.
COLLAPSED in the craftie space???). There was a pile of odd bits on the desk (covered in dust!). They reminded me of a card seen a long time ago on the talented Birgit's blog. I kept a note of the layout etc in my 'bitty bits' file, dug it out and came up with this.
I used my usual fave textured white card for the card base and matched it with an odd leftover panel. A scrap of the same textured card in black tidied up - thankfully just about the right size - and layered onto the panel.
An odd bit of vellum which was all tatty round the edges straightened up and then stamped with a small falling leaf stamp and sentiment in Black Versamark and then clear embossed.
A few tiny bronze beads (really fiddly and I nearly gave up!) threaded onto some twine, wrapped round the panel and tied, before attaching to the main card base.
Added a couple of black pearls and job done.
This is the first card I have made in such a long time - (I was organised with my DT posts and all cards done before the beginning of May!) - and it was nice to just have some 'me' time!
More 'me' time now - off to have a nice manicure and a bit of pampering!
Thanks for hanging in with me whilst my visits have been so rare - appreciate you all very much.
Have a lovely day whatever you're doing. x
