What a horrid wet day, how can we have two days so different?
I took this picture on Sunday at Seatown on the Jurassic coast, we never made Portland this weekend. The colours were just so awesome, look at that horizon. I think this view is just so fantastic, I just had to find a way I could look at it every day.....you may notice it in the side bar, I even managed to hide the crab pot buoys under the letters! Tee hee.
Although it has been raining for most of the day I have had the lovely job of looking at wonderful Full Bloom Challenge goodies, the photos were taken last week when the sun was shining. We are showcasing two more talented crafters today, Jenny and Margaret. Not sure when Margaret is home she has been on a cruise, lucky you Margaret.
Jenny made these two charming brooches, they are just delish, I love them.
I think this is very clever Jenny, the way you have used the ribbon as curtains - just perfect.
You have been busy Jenny, (it confused Rachie!) we only stock this leaf ribbon in white or moss. Looks like the white leaf takes ink very well - good thinking Jenny.
A wedding theme card from Margaret, simple but elegant.
Margaret this bookmark is just what I need. (I have found a new author and have started to whizz through her books. Any one else read Annie Groves? I have started with her latest release and am working backwards - I like to be different.) This is just so simple, a length of ribbon stuck onto card, with a ribbon tag at the top - how pretty is that?
Margaret had the same idea as Jenny about this leaf ribbon, but not until after she had stuck it on to the card! But she sent me several samples, so I could see her results. This is ALL gobbledegook to me, but you will understand what Margaret has used. She produced a lilac sample with a squirt of Cosmic Shimmer Mist in Bilberry Crush and a pink piece using Distress Ink "Worn Lipstick" on a cotton pad and then rubbed onto the leaves. She advised that you keep dabbing until the colour is how you like it. They both look quite stunning.
This card is dramatic Margaret with its shiny card, it really pulls the colours from the ribbon.
Not sure what you call these cards - anyone help me out? I will call this Margarets Zig Zag card, it would look elegant on anyones mantle piece, standing tall and proud.
I have been busy sewing over the weekend, not quite what I had planned, will tell all tomorrow, and more challenge goodies on Thursday.
