Blog Award

Well, how lovely of Liam to send on this award to me! Just follow this link back to Liam's blog to browse all of her wonderful projects!
And to pass on this award I would now like to nominate:
Bronwyn Eastley - for her beautiful creations!

As for 10 things about me...well I'm only going to mention one recent stressful event which was the near death of our gorgeous (& a wee bit scatty!) red setter X retriever, Rosie, from rodent poisoning. However, she is back on form now (after plasma transfusions & mega Vit K doses), barking to wake us up early for her breakfast & generally bossing us around!! I'm just glad she is still with us!
And as this is really about cards rather than pets, here's a card too:

Stamp set: Owl together now card: basic grey, pretty in pink, orchid opulence, tempting turquoise.

Gift Bag

Just before I settle down to watch England V Germany in the World Cup soccer I thought I'd post a project that I did for an Unconvention challenge back in May. I do have a tutorial and template, so please email me (address on side) if you would like a copy and leave a comment so I make sure to check the emails!
It's a good sized bag & only uses 2 sheets of A4 card and some dsp depending on how you'd like to decorate it. The gift bag pocket is the perfect size for a Stampin' Up! love note card.

This is a close up of the gift card:

Stamps: Flight of the butterfly, vintage vogue

Card & Ink: Rich razzleberry, pale plum, white stazon, kraft dsp: Cottage wall

Other: Jumbo eyelets, rich razzleberry polka dot ribbon, love note & envelope
