It's that 'heart' again!

Hi Everyone!
Yes it's that heart favourite heart die by Concord 9th...the one I lost and found (thankfully) down the back of the radiator had slipped off a pile of stuff on the window sill!

Speaks for itself I reckon!

The other thing that has been occupying my time...the sorting in the craft room,.... well I have been ironing ribbons...yeah sad I know......but they are always creased and crumpled when I want to use them so then I tend not to bother with them. ironed all the shortish bits...(the long pieces are in a tin all individually held in mini rubber bands).........and had an idea to hang them on a coat hanger!

Some of you probably already do this!

Then.... hubby had the idea to peg them at the bottom with those mini pegs we use at Christmas for the cards...and that would add weight to the bottom and hold them on the hanger! they are.....just awaiting a hook at the back of the craft room door now.
Nicely organised and I can see what I have now...but sadly I don't appear to have gained any storage space as a result..ah well!!!

Lastly but by no means the least...a happy welcome to my latest follower.....Karen Knott......unfortunately I don't seem to be able to find a link to your blog Karen...perhaps you can help me out there.

Thank you for popping in to see me and for all the lovely comments you leave me. I really must thank everyone for the lovely Anniversary Congratulations  received lately..'THANK YOU' you really are a lovely bunch ...mwah

Wishing you all a super is nearly here! Didn't we get great weather last weekend for the Bank Holiday! Some more of the same would be good.

Take care and I will see you again when I have something to share.

Another 25!

Hello friends!!

...not for us this time but for some friends of ours (25 years)...I doubt hubby and I will see another never knows as my mum is 97!

Here is the card I made for them and the box......

and one more to try to show you how much it sparkles....

The male half of the couple receiving this card hates I used the lovely sparkly (the photo still does not do it justice) silver glitter card I found at a show...all encapsulated and it really blings IRL.

The background was embossed with a creative expressions folder and I did a sheet of tissue paper to match to wrap the card in the box. A tip I picked up from Crafters Companion...brilliant...makes a plain sheet of tissue look really knew that...oh well...always behind with trends, that's me!

The numbers are Tonic and the banner is a Sue Wilson die and the stamped and embossed sentiment is an old one from stash.
I began making this card before my holidays but it just wouldn't come together...not till last week! see I told you I can never make a quick card...that's probably why i am not very productive.

Ok.....busy day so I will rush on.
Weather here is wet, sunny, get the picture...washing in.... on the airer!
Hope it's better for the weekend, speaking of which I hope you all have a good one.
Thanks for stopping by, your visit is much appreciated as are all the lovely comments you leave me.
Take care everyone.
