I'm on a roll

I decided I should put a couple of posts up as I have been neglecting this for too long now.

I thought I could share with you my el cheapo version of ribbon storage! I realise it does have some drawbacks, such as how on earth I can dust it without knocking it flying, it certainly can't be vacuumed or the ribbons would disappear; but this way at least I can see them and it might encourage me to use them more as they have been even more neglected than this blog.

Anyhow this is it......... two lengths of net curtain wire, a couple of rings to secure it to the wall. Two LARGE cup hooks screwed into the wall and some curtain pole clips for net or voile curtains and voila el cheapo ribbon display/storage unit.

If I had realised I would be doing this I would have organised that back wall a little differently so that the ribbons were not dragging over the hooks for the other storage items, but hey ho.

Whilst I am sharing, I made this for an elderly lady my Daughter cleans for.

No idea why I find it impossible to make a 'quick' card, but having matted up the gorgeous 20s/30s lady could I find anything that went with her. Then I was flipping through the DCWV Garden Party stack and that gorgeous sheet of rose edged card just popped out at me.

Problem solved.

It was appropriate too, as this lovely old lady was born in the 1920s, so the lady was her era.


Stampavie Challenge

I feel terrible. I haven't posted on this blog for 6 weeks. If anyone out there is reading this I am sorry if you have been looking and found nothing!

I have been busy with life and shifting some crafting excess from my stash.

Finally I am at last able to sit down and do some crafting and I couldn't resist the current challenge from Stampavie. The challenge was to make a card with at least one stampavie image, and as many flowers as you want. I chose 'Giving Shelter' which in itself has a large flower on it.

It has been coloured with prismas and OMS and matted using nesties and some gorgeous Basic Grey papers. I did some faux stitching (only because my sewing machine is way too big to cart into my craft room or even to be honest drag out the cupboard just to stitch a few bits) as this seems to be all the rage right now. The flowers are mostly from the K&Co Paper Flowers stack with a couple of gorgeous paper roses.

I enjoyed this as the Rachelle images are just so cute and I had great fun deciding which colours to use. Who says you can't have a green ladybug!
