Funky Fabric




here's another card made with my ebay find, fabric by Loralie called 'gone shopping'. I used the same method as before, swipe the back of the fabric with a glue stick, stick to white cardstock and smooth with a bone folder. Dry overnight then cut out. The border punch is lattice arch by Martha Stewart, and the flowers are Poppicraft.
I have everything ready to go to my crop, how clever of me to condense it into about 10 bags, by the time I unload, it will be time to come home again :) I fell asleep in the sun yesterday by the pool, having applied super high factor sunscreen all over me first - well all over except for my forehead, which I missed, I have a fringe, Big mistake, massive....... I look like a biker chick wearing a bright red bandanna on my head, except it's just my glowing forehead. They could stand me on top of a cliff in an emergency and I would make a very good temporary lighthouse.

Hi Sunnybunny, Since you are into working with fabrics, check out Debbie Jones web. She is awesome. I took a couple of classes with her. She lives in Florida and holds classes at fabric stores.
