Busy Weekend

Despite being busy this weekend, I managed to finally open the Let's Make Cards Issue 18 kit and make something with the contents.

I used the packaging to provide the white card blank, and created 3 apertures with a scalloped circle punch on the front face.
I then used a small circle punch to create a scallop edge to a section of pink spotty paper and this was then glued to the left hand edge.
A few of these punched circles were then used to decorate the front and I drew 'faux stitching' with a green fineline pen. Another section of this paper was used to line the inside, showing through the apertures.
Using green floral paper, (also from the kit), I punched 2 flowers with a daisy squeeze punch, mounted them onto silver mirri card circles and placed them in the middle of the top and bottom apertures, adding a small green gem to the centre of each.

A small section of white braid ribbon was threaded through the Happy Birthday sentiment tag and this was mounted to the front, over the central aperture.
Additional green gems were glued to the spotty circles, as a finishing touch, using Diamond Glaze because it dries clear.

There's loads of kit left wih some fabbylicious papers and vintage images, so hope to get a chance this week to make some more cards for my Grab'n'Go box.

I must also show you the beautiful Anniversary card and gorgeous RAK received last Friday from my very special CB friend Tiggertastic (aka Sarah).
Look at all these luvverlies ... can't wait for a chance to play with them all.

The fabulous wall hanging is for my horse mad daughter who was, yet again, blown away at the time and effort put into making something especially for her.
You are so very kind and generous Sarah ... huge thank you hugs from us both xxx
