A few of my favourite things


What a drama yesterday, one I could have done without. Got out of car at craft fair, slipped on a small gravel slope, banged head on car. Luckily I had a hat and both hoods on my tops came up. Saw nurse and after a while not too bad so did craft fair. Felt shaky at the end so went to walk in centre. Seen within 3 mins. Delayed reaction but hubby to keep an eye on me. This post was scheduled so will see how I am today to see if I manage any commenting.

A commissioned card today. It's an 8 x 8 card and I had fun playing with dies I have sprayed the birdcage with gold spray and sparkle and used sanded Core'dinations on the top heart banner. I have wanted the La La Land heart banner for ages and finally decided I must have it. I have also used some of my fave rose ribbon, this one is from The Hobby House as I bought it before I joined the Crafty Ribbons DT, the roses are Wild Orchid. Oh and the papers are Marianne Designs, Eline's Huis.
