Secret Garden - and WIN

Wishing all my American friends a very happy
Thanksgiving



 This month's project pack from Craftwork Cards, is this lovely Secret Garden - really scrumptious papers, some with glitter, these lovely floral images all ready for you to colour, and of course, candi in coordinating colours. They have also had the very clever idea of making foiled bands to take their shaped sentiments - I really love these. What's Candi? Gorgeous little domed discs of pearlised card, think of them as legless brads. They can be coloured, punched, have letters stamped on them, glittered, heat embossed - a lot of fun

The first card today is a simple easel, the scalloped green circle was in the pack, and I made a flower with upside down candy glued to a punched circle. I coloured the candi in the middle in one of the colours I used for the image (spice) so that it coordinated perfectly.................

 The second one was equally easy to put together - I coloured the image with promarkers, and used a silver metallic marker to highlight the edge of the shaped Craftwork Cards base card. You can see clearly in this one why I am in love with the foiled bands for the sentiments....... 


 So today, I am putting together a package of Craftwork Cards stuff for someone - you will get some of the above images, sentiments, candi, and a few little surprises that I didn't photograph, as well. All you have to do is comment under this post, and I will pick a name with all the others on Monday - the half price goody bags are now sold out, I hope some of you bagged some bags!



Thank you all so much for the lovely birthday wishes. I did have a very relaxing day with lots of cards and phone calls. I have a couple of cards I want to share with you, but my camera had a flat battery, so it will have to wait until tomorrow, when I will be giving another little something away


Hilarious conversation between my son and four year old Max.....
'Daddy, where do I have to go before I am an adult, to learn how to hold hot stuff from the cooker and microwave, and drink coffee....' 
'Drink coffee Max? What do you mean?'
No Daddy, don't worry about the coffee. I'll learn to do that in little sips. But I will need to go somewhere to learn about the hot stuff'


Ah, the wonderful, simplistic mind of a little child


See you tomorrow
