~ Messy Tables Produce Miracle Cards ~
Hello Saturday!! :o) This week, I managed to sneak in a little crafty-time one of the afternoons.
A quick 20-minute, de-stress session at my messy table = a fun card for a fun friend ..........
I like rows of buttons...... they remind me of the candy from america - smarties - that I loved in my childhood days (a fairly recent stage in my life!) :o)
I actually almost licked my fingers after glittering these buttons....... the way the glue-and-sparkles stick to your hand makes you think it's actually good to eat.
Today I intend to tell you what a messy crafter I am. Tilting my head ninety-degrees downward, I can see on my skirt traces of glue and several ink spots. Some of those said ink spots have a suspicious triangular shape. Triangular as in: pennant-flag-stamp-shape.
Will i ever learn to stop cleaning my stamps on my clothes?
~ pretty K&Co papers ~ favorite fairy-wings with a little dash of tea-dye ~ some vintage trim ~ beautiful banner stamps from here (they're sold out now, but if you live in the US you can find some with a good discount here) ~ posies from here ~ delicious button-candy in this pretty pink, gorgeous green, and cream ~
one more card with button-rows for you..............
~ vintage paper trimmed into layers of a heart and stitched ~ more K&Co papers ~ favorite sentiment set ~ mulberry rose ~ new favorite silk ribbon ~ wide lace trim ~ fuzzy twine ~
This is a three-loop bow I like to tie when one of my tails "accidentally" turn out too long.. a quick addition and it makes a much puffier ribbon......... maybe one day I'll show you how :o)
Sending you weekend cheer.........
