Happy Friday ahead of what I hope will be a happy weekend for everyone!!
Shock horror .. .. get me .. .. posting two days on the run .. .. wow!! Just like the old days!
I have had a fabby day today. No deadlines to meet .. .. a day to just make whatever took my fancy .. .. and this was one of the creations of the day:
Image: Penny Black "1670K" Sugar Sweet Dreams
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat (sadly no longer available .. .. as will be the case with everything in the boutique soon :-( .. .. yep, it wasn't a nightmare .. .. I have finally convinced myself it is actually true and I am gutted.
Backing Papers: Pink Petticoat "Pinstripes" and a page from an old cookery book
X-Cut Corner Rounding Punch and Heart Palm Punch
Stampin' Up!: Banner Punch
My Trusty Sewing Machine
and Sketch Number Seven which you can find on my sketch tab
and if anyone is wondering how I managed to get a long banner out of the tiny Stampin' Up punch .. .. .. well I cut a narrow strip and did this:
.. .. .. and for anyone who is worried about the cookery book I used. It is a very, very huge old book .. .. the one I bought when we got married all those years ago to learn how to cook from .. .. and it is falling to pieces through lots of use and old age. I have been taking out the recipes I want to keep and filing them away but as I am never, EVER going to be making jam I used a page from the "preserves" section for this card.
So that is me for today.
Hopefully catch you again soon.
