The spec for this card was Line Dancing for a 70 year old. I tried to make it as feminine as possible as the colours on the boot paper were quite masculine.

The inside of the card had a boot on a spring.

Had this backing paper forever and haven't got a clue who the manufacturer is.
Circles cut with nestabilities, corners are cuttlebug accents, musical notes are a sizzix sizlit.

You wait for a while and then four come along at once!!

Yes, just like a British Bus, you wait and wait and then four come along together!!

Have been a.w.o.l. again as my mother has been seriously ill and I have had very little time for myself or for crafting. I Have found some time to try and relax in the last few days and these are the results.

First is made with the new trimcraft pack of Bloom and Grow my M.M.E and the accompanying decoupage pack. I have hand stitched with embroidery thread and the tag has been added with doodlebug rub ons.
These two were great fun to make with 1" circle pieces of both wisteria and porcelain papers by basic grey - great way of using up the small remaining pieces of projects!

This one was made for a 50 year old lady with a perchant for shopping (especially shoes and handbags) and wine - that was the spec! The card stood up as a tri-fold and the ribbons held it together. The recipient loved this one!
