Have I confused you all with the title of this post? well read on and all will be revealed. Last Monday my lovely friend Anne and her DH came down for a visit and after we suggested the boys go for a long walk:) me and Anne disappeared off to play in my little Craft room.
As usual Anne had brought lots of crafty goodies both for us to play with and a few gifts she had made for me - how lovely is this card Anne is the master of these accordion cards and the detail is amazing in this one. Take a close look at the wording that is with the dragonfly it reads lifetime friends and I am sure we definitely will be.
We made a little note book each with the beautiful new 'Timmy' fabric , this one is mine
The photo on the right is a before and after with the metal name holder. They were reduced to clear at 50p for 3 and as you can see the original was copper glitter when I bought it. A little rubbing off of the glitter and fresh coat of black gesso left to dry and then tickled with treasure gold gave it a lovely old metal look - perfect to match my lovely note book.
Anne brought a couple of her new dies and I had her working hard die cutting me a few to play with. I have put a couple to use already and made this card with the gorgeous reindeer and Merry Christmas. The Tattered pine cone has been given a mixed raffia bow, and the snowflakes are stamped onto acetate with white stayzon. I don't do glitter, but I do like the sprinkle of frantage shaved ice on the top of the red.
We had a wonderful crafty few hours together plus a very enjoyable bite to eat at our newly refurbished local pub, all in all a lovely day - Thank you Anne x ps the boys enjoyed their long walk as well as a well deserved drink at the pub!
