Oops - where has the time gone - I so intended to write more blog posts this month... but life has been busy.
Just recently we spent time visiting family, where there are two special small people who occupy our time, and we have the third special little person visiting this coming weekend.
Button and Lil'M playing well together.
Yesterday I had my first card class for the year, and as usual we did two projects - both included bows, which was requested by some, and dreaded by others.
The first card was a valentines using the felted cardstock technique.
They all agreed that they would never look at paper napkins the same again! As ever, each card was unique, with numerous variations in the placement
of the napkin on the panel, and ribbon.
I also added a few rhinestones to my sample.
The second card was a challenge for some as I got them to screw up some old dictionary paper - not just once but twice to really increase the texture!
The paper was then inked with the direct to paper method.
The top part of the card was a swing panel, which they were intrigued with.
And the bow was tied with a bow maker which several of the ladies had, but did not know how to use, hence the request.
I finished the card with these rhinestones so I could show how the I had used some part swirls and individual bling to make something different.
Thanks for visiting - may your day be blessed.
