Scraplings & other things

I have crammed an awful lot into this weekend thankfully things I like doing. On Saturday I went to a workshop run by Carol  from crafty pieces hosted by Papermaze we made a fantastic Tim Holtz configurations box. It really was a fab day although poor Carol had a lot to contend with as I got in a muddle with my 16th and 8ths boy I can be dense sometimes, think I had a dodgy ruler LOL but it turned out well.

Today I managed to fit in gardening, cooking and crafting. Over at JFF  it is a continuation of Size Matters and this week its Scraplings ( a new one to me) it is the off cut of making a card which is typically 5.1/2 by 5.1/2 this leaves 2.1/2 by 5.1/2 a Scrapling. I inked the card in bundled sage, marigold and worn lipstick (my favorite combo) then stamped a crafty individuals flowery swirls in bamboo and some text in white acrylic paint. I then embossed a swirl I had die cut in green and added a small TH rosette with a button in the middle, garden string and a button watering can. Gardening this morning inspired my scrapling today. Enjoy your week and thanks for stopping by. XOXO.
