Thank You and Flowery!

Hello friends

Today's card was me actually crafting...I know that sounds a little
strange but it wasn't designed for a specific project, 
I just fancied making something and went through some 
boxes of dies and papers.

I started with a white card base, affixed some gingham paper -
My Mind's Eye - Howdy Doody, spritzed it a little with glimmer mist.

My feature die is Decorative Labels Thirty Four,
to be honest I forgot I had this die and didn't realise how lovely it was!

Stamped 'thank you' onto the middle size die cut - matching pattern paper.

Affixed some twine, fern leaves from the Foliage die set
and little flowers - again spritzed with glimmer mist...
I do get a bit carried away with a bottle in hand!

For the rest of this week my nose is definitely to the grindstone, I'm flying 
out to Frankfurt on Friday to demo at Creative World for a few days.
Packing lots of samples, demo items and a make and take kit.
I will be sure to share more with you on my return but keep popping back 
to the blog as I will be scheduling posts.

Take care friends.
