Quick make

Well a very good morning to all you lovelies out there in blogland... and what a gorgeous day it is looking like being here in Motherwell. You can already see the sun starting to push through.
Housework is now complete for the day & the washing is almost ready to be hung out to dry... have just done my daily check in with my mums husband, whilst she enjoys the Las Vegas sun I have to ensure he has his daily medication...
Plenty of fun on the agenda for me today as I received some delicious goodies from Sheonagh at Telfords Direct yesterday... although I am sorry to say I cannot share the creations with you as they are to go on her blog... this will be fun as Sheonagh herself is working with the same materials, as is my lovely friend Amanda Bateman....
Not sure when all the samples will be ready for posting but when they are I will let you know so that you can pop over & have a look.
In the meantime, here is a little something I made whilst watching tv last night... sometimes I just like to clear my head of everything & find that digging into my Craftwork Cards goodies is the easiest way to do it... the only thinking involved is the layout...
Here I took the black & white scalloped matting layers.. ink the edge of the white card, wrapped with some ribbon & stuck to the base card. Next I highlighted the edges of the black matt with my white Sakura Souffle pen (used the same pen for the stitched stems of the flowers) & attached 2 spotty flower heads, 1 is flat & the other is raised using 3d foam pads. To complete the whole card I added some black gems & white card candy.

Scalloped Matts, ribbon, flower heads & card candy all from Craftwork Cards

White Souffle Pen by Sakura

Hope the weather is lovely with you too & that you have a craft filled day planned for yourself.
