It seems ages since I last posted,but I haven't really had chance to craft the last few days so I've got nothing to show you.I've been asked to do a photo card by my daughter's friend for her boyfriend who's away in the Armed Forces and I'm really struggling with it.She likes my style of cards and wanted me to do a shabby chic one but so far I've only got the photo and a Tim Holtz metal frame on it. I nearly always put flowers or bling onto my cards but do you think I could put a grungy inked brown paper bag flower on a card for a big strapping soldier? I would value your opinions on this.
As I said in my previous post I was at Bromsgrove Crop on Saturday,it is such a friendly crop and the ladies are so lovely,we have such a giggle and I always look forward to going.I probably talk more than scrap but here's the other layout I did.
I've had a great day today,my friend Rach asked if I wanted to go down South to visit LB Crafts with her,she said I would love it and didn't I just! They have got the best selection of stamps that I have seen,lot's of altered items and plenty samples to look at with different techniques to try. Lin is so knowledgeable about all the products and techniques and was very patient with all the questions we were throwing at her.As you can see I had a very productive shopping trip with a few more Glimmer Mists to add to my collection,paints,Tim Holtz buttons (a must have),stamps (as if I needed anymore) to name but a few things.
Hopefully on the next post I will have the photo card finished,I don't think I've struggled so much with a card before.
Thanks for stopping by!
