good evening all.
actually got my noggin working tonight and am pleased that i`ve just taken my last antibiotic.
so on to tonights card which i have really enjoyed making.the flowers i`ve made were a happy accident.i started by trying to make the ribbon flowers where you stick your twisted ribbon to cardboard but miss keggy handed here was getting in a right pickle so i decided to use wool instead and just coiled it on to the card and added a brad centre.

4.simon says stamp challenge - lets play bingo - i chose flowers,brads and sentiment.
5.southern girls challenge - challenge 21 - anything goes.
6.charisma cardz challenge - challenge 24 - pink and green.

products used are:
pink and green card,
gcd papers - melody rose.
cotton scrim.
handmade wool flowers.
green brads and pearls from stash.
whiff of joy sentiment.
sugar nellie stamp - simply sassy - boho chic.
promarkers.

Lou Mac said...

Ohhh!! Now I do love these colours together! LOVE the paper collection you've used - and I'm with you.. those coiled flowers are beauts!
Your colouring is perfect and that sentiment matches her so perfectly!!

I'm sooo glad I'm not the only left hander trying to do things backwards! I too have mastered the chain, I've got about 6 metres of the stuff! LOL. But that's as far as my crochet skills go at the moment I'm afraid!! LOL. Back to YT it is - my mam isn't a very patient teacher! xo Lou Mac.
