As it is Friday it is time to reveal the Dare for this week.
G'day all, Gillian here, and it's my turn to dare you all this week
Your card can be any theme you like, just as long as it's got something you'd find in a Haberdashery Department on it
So here is my effort
So here is my effort
As many of my dare cards are , this is a large square card (looks slightly squiffy in the photo but it doesn't lean really!). Papers are BG Stella Ruby and this time I didn't try to hide the sewing pattern! The lace and the other material came from a wonderful bag of bits that a member of Crafts By Carolyn - Puss - was selling at a meet in 2006. I found some tape measure ribbon in my stash, ditto with the buttons and the fibres came from a swap. The sentiment was stamped onto white card which was then swooshed with an Old Photo Distress Ink Pad. I love the way they change to colour of the white bit but keep the black shining through!
In other crafting...
I had an order of cuttlebug dies yesterday from the US. Ideally the musical notes were for last weeks Bible Study! But I am sure I can use them. I think some "Just a note" cards might appear. As I have been volunteered to sell cards at the Church Fair in November I am going to have to make up a selection of quick and easy cards. Anyhoo I got the two lots of notes and the dear little animals. I bought from the Bargain Garden and she threw in a little packet of goodies as well. I'm a sucker for that kind of service! I had the Craft Club at my Harold Hill Church and we had a new person come - we are now up to three on the books! I think it is starting to grow. We were makig baby cards so I was able to use one of my dies for a non trad baby card.
With a bit of BG Romani thrown in. I'm into orange at the mo' it seems.
And red and black. (more of that when I have finished the current layout)
This is letter sized and uses more Funky Kits papers, some Dabber painted and glossy accented Heidi Swapp letters (which are of course falling off). I lost the dot on the i and had to improvise. the fuzzy felt additions are Scrapbook Inspirations freebies, the felt flower was from this months Self Addressed Kit, the ribbon from a previous one and the large brad came via the Scrapagogo charity kit. Mmmm I get around a bit don't I?!
And to save your eyes, here is the journalling
