Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today:)
It's time to head on over and catch up with the Papertake Weekly girls and this week our theme is
which is me trying to do a play on words ie bow ties - what a poor attempt old Piggy chops!!!
All you have to do is add a bow or use a die or both - simples.
If you get a sec, nip over for a mooch and it would be fab if you could join us.
And this is what I did.
I used both a bow and dies, although one of the dies is a bit disguised.
I stamped the sentiment, which is from Lili of The Valley Set 62 Quotables-Friendship (and aren't those words just so lovely), onto a Tim Holtz Baroque die cut and then stuck it over a panel die cut using a Spellbinder Fancy Lattice due and a sheet of Country Gent paper (LOTV natch!!).
.. I added me embellies :)
Oh and there's some white tulle tucked behind it.
The arrangement is made up of Darjeeling White Mini Blossom Flowers, Darjeeling White Blossom Flowers, Mixed Dahlia Eastern Spice Flowers, Brown Winter Cones (aren't they completely FAB) and some good old Martha Stewpot punched leaves.
All the blooms and ribbon etc are of course from
Here's a close of of one of the cones.
So that's the old card done and it's time for the first
of 2014, and there's a ...
... up for grabs.
There's so much lovely stuff in the shop so if you want to be in with a chance of winning it, all you need to do is follow this blog and then leave your name with Inlinkz at the bottom of this post.
And that's it.
I'll draw the winner next Tuesday and good luck to all who enter and of course, hugest of thanks to Mary & Andrea at The Ribbon Girl for sponsoring me xx
Production is cranking up, ready for the next Create & Craft show which is on Monday 10th February.
Now I am literally sitting on my hands here because I am dying to tell you what's on the show ... but I can't.
But what I CAN tell you is that its all utterly gorgeous.
Well, you'd expect nothing less from LOTV now would you :)
So get your tellies all set cos you won't want to miss it - we're on at 9am and then 3pm.
WOOOHOOO, HUGELY EXCITED :)))))
AND if that wasn't enough excitement for one day, I've been having a play with my new Fiskars Fuse as well.
I'll put some cardage on here once I've got it all sorted. This machine is one heavy duty bad boy and just the sort of thing I need for workshop prepping etc. I've never used anything that is so easy to turn, cuts with one pass (none of yer too-ing and fro-ing and moving stuff around until it's all cut out) AND it cuts most dies which I'm so glad of because before I was switching machines like a crazy fool some days!!!
I'm really impressed with it.
Did you see Corrie last night?
It was really sad - I had to keep eating crisps to stop meself from blubbing lol!!! I'm worried about Roy now - how will he cope without Hayley? I think it was handled really well and it has opened up the discussion hasn't it.
Right I better be orf.
Have the fabbiest of days and don't forget the giveaway peeps.
Huggiest of hugs to all xxx
