The final one...

Hello friends
It's the final '10 Minute Make' that it is in this month's edition of 
Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine.
This card features the very lovely Bitty Blossoms and the classic Labels One.
Still loving the Carta Bella - Traditions papers, such lovely quality.
I thought the cluster of Bitty Blossoms mirrored the little flower sticker.
The shaped banner/bunting is also a sticker, it was one of those embellishments that went on the the card...back on the card!  Crafting dilemma and..I'm still not certain!

Yesterday saw the last of my crafting supplies/stock etc move into the studio/shop,
I feel so lucky to have a extra room at the back of the shop that I can use as a stock room.  
It took a few car journeys, Elliott helped and in true teenage fashion questioned why
I need "so much stuff!"  I know you all understand :)
My home is looking quite empty of craft supplies now.

Thank you for all the suggestions for a collective word for Grand Caliburs -
Sandra came up with a 'Galaxy' of Grand Caliburs...oooo I like that...
I wonder if it is because it has associations with chocolate!
Adena's suggestion of a 'Collaboration' of Caliburs is very clever...
Thank you all again.

Wishing you a great start to the week.
Take care.

Hi Christine, yes leave the banners the card needs them. The papers are lovely as is the complete card. Love the names for a collection of Grand Caliburs. Bet your shop/studio looks wonderful.

Hi Christine, I love the banners too...but I do like to add bunting/banners to some cards anyway...leave them on! Carole Z X

Morning Christine, glad you have got all your stock moved over now. Bet it looks and feels wonderful. I am not a fan of bunting but that is just my personal choice.
Hope you have a great start to the week also.

Hi Christine,
another super 10min make. Which would take me a lot longer. I too like the banners.
I'm sure you will soon fill the spaces left by your craft goodies going to your shop, you know what us crafts peeps are like.
Have a wonderful crafty day.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

I think the bunting balances your card nicely Christine. I bet you want to spend all your time in your new studio! x

Morning Christine,
No bunting for me I'm afraid, but love the cheerful bright papers and the flowers are so pretty.
Elliot gave a typical male comment, just the thing my husband would have said.
Enjoy sorting your new shop/studio.

Janice said...

Good morning Christine
Another lovely ten minute make! I too like the bunting.

So pleased to hear you have nearly everything sorted now in your studio. It must be a lovely feeling for you after all your hard work. I imagine your conservatory is looking very bare now, but I'm sure it won't take yo too long to change that!

After the early morning rain yesterday, we had a lovely sunny day, so fingers crossed we have the same today.

Enjoy your day.

Morning Christine, we all have those should it stay on or off. I like it as it is. Glad you've finally moved everything over. Emma

Hi Christine
I love the banner on your card, it's a good finishing touch.
You must be exhausted all that rushing about you do, I couldn't keep up, at least the sunshine will help
Take care

Morning Christine. I do love those flowers they really finish off a card. I wonder if your craft stuff will work its way back home??? well you cant be at the studio 24/7 lol

Looking forward to seeing more pics of your studio especially the chair in the window

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, Another beautiful quick card, I too love those papers, great colour and pattern combinations, love the bunting and adore the flowers.
Glad your studio/shop is now fully stocked, we all know you can't have too much 'stuff' !!!
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Ita said...

Hi Christine this is a lovely card,if it was me I would not use the banner I thing it takes away from the rest of the card.Delighted that your shop is comming along nicley .I have to sort my craft stuff,I can find nothing.Great news that you found your die,I can stop hasling saint antony,I promised him a few candels if he found it for you,so will have to make a trip to the church.

Ita said...

Hi Christine me again,every day I mean to apologise for my spelling I am dyslexic some days better than others so I just hope you can read my posts?????

Sandra said...

Good afternoon Christine, I am not sure about the bunting to be honest, but all of your cards look fab so it's just personal choice. Your conservatory must be looking very bare with all of your crafty stash at your studio, have you left some craft goodies at home or are you going to keep all crafting at the studio? I know that sometimes we just get that overwhelming urge to craft at the strangest of times! Having four teenagers myself ( or I will have next week when my twin daughters turn thirteen) Elliot's
comment is a very familiar and frequently used one in our house!

Evening Christine,
Yes a late comment from me - for a collection of GC i would suggest a Carcophony of Caliburs.
Really liking the card the colours of the paper are prettyand fresh.
Glad the move is nearly complete.

Hi Christine, time to catch up again with your blog. So pleased the workshops went well, everybody looked very much 'in the craft zone'.The card today, I like everything about it apart from the bunting, it does'nt do anthing for me, sorry. I think it looks too rounded,too bold and heavy in comparison to the flowery papers. No wonder you had a dilema.Thats just my opinion of course.
Crafty best wishes, Carolyn x
