Last Couple of Days

What a lovely couple of days I have had this week. It all started on Saturday when we had the fabulous Maria Simms over for 2 workshops using cosmic shimmers, dimension stamps, masks and much more. Lots of laughters...what with Mos dangly bits and Marias butterfly but we won't go into that!

On Monday Tom and I went to Hardwick Hall Park in Sedgefield, if you have never been here you MUST go! It was so picturesque, I am quite annoyed I forgot my camera. After the park Tom took me to the golfing range for my dinner, I should have realised this was a tactical move as Tom ended up playing golf with Ian and went to visit my best buddy Sarah. We took Sarahs 2 lovely boys to the park then I came home and chilled

Today I have had a busy day, working from home. I have been prepping for tomorrows Suzicraft class.

This is the card we are making tomorrow:

This card was made using K&Co Blue Awning Papers, Suzicraft gold pearl 8 for £1 sheets, Gold Ice Stickles, Spellbinders Aster nestability, hat pins and gold ribbon.

I LOVE K&Co Scrapbooks Pads, they are one of my most favourite products.

This card was a lot of fun to do, lots of cutting, inking and distressing. I used some creme pearly card and cut it into a 6x6 card. I then used frayed burlap and my 12x12 SplodgeAway Mat and inked all of the edges. I then cut out 3 rectangular pieces of gold pearl card and inked with brushed corduroy, I then distressed the card with a pair of scissors then backed onto some K&Co paper. I also distressed the patterned paper with scissors.

I then placed the distressed pieces on the card and wrapped a piece of gold ribbon along the bottom with double sided tape. I used the aster die and cut out 2 medium asters and a large aster. I mounted them with silicone and looped gold ribbon on the back of the flower. For the flourishes I used the Marianne die and popped in 2 hat pins. The stamp is a Creative Expressions Stamp.
