Well Hello, I am hoping that everyone had a good day today. We had a lovely time making the Swinging Around card, everyone was in good spirits and many a chuckle was had! We barely stopped for our lunch as we were having such fun but one of my friends had made a gorgeous lemon meringue (in fact, she made 2!) so with that in mind, we hurriedly munched our sandwiches so we could get to the best bit and we weren’t disappointed!! We are all looking forward to our meeting next week now for more fun and craftiness!
Once again, I have chosen some altered art for today’s entry. I covered both the inside and the outside of this book in Magnolia paper. For the background of the decoration in the centre, I have used Spellbinders Diamond Effects die and Enchanted Labels 28 die. The white layer beneath the sentiment is the centre of Marianne Anja’s Large Oval die and the sentiment itself is mounted on a Spellbinders Oval die. The foliage is created from Memory Box Fresh Foliage die and the Lorelai Leaf die with Martha Stewart’s punch, small Hydrangea Flowers on the tips. The little punched leaf is one of my favourites by Nellie Snellen. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the lace, pearls and ribbon are from my own stash. Hope you find this pleasing to the eye. Bye for now, take care, hugs, Annie x
