It's Today!!

Hello friends
Today is Charity Event Day! 
I did hear that there is a Model Railway Show in the town hall...I'm thinking/hoping
that will not draw my visitors away!  Although I suspect one person may go looking -
Elliott is very partial to trains.

As mentioned, I will be taking photos and sharing them with you and there will be 
the very special Winners Week next week - remember to stop by every day and 
check your raffle tickets!  They will still be on sale until midnight tonight.

Okay, let's talk craft!
I created this card for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
More photos and details are here on their blog - feel free to leave a comment there,
I'm always grateful and the company likes me then!

I went for a bold look using deep red cardstock as it picks out the red from the patterned paper.
Onto a cream card base I mounted red card and patterned paper cutting one edge with 
The frame is created using Labels Twenty.
Cut/embossed a piece of patterned paper for the aperture and stamped it 
(yes, I actually stamped - I can cope with little stamps!)
My favourite Foliage and Bitty Blossom dies - ta dah!  All done.
 A close up - will I ever tire of Bitty Blossoms?? No never!
Enjoy your weekend.
Take care friends.

Best wishes for today Christine, you deserve to raise loads of cash after all the hard work you have done. Love the card, I like you keep going back to my bitty blossoms, I find making the flowers restful. Love today's card, simple but so elegant.

Hi Christine. Love the card, great shade of red. I don't think you will have to worry about the model railway exhibition. Maybe the chaps will drop off the ladies at your shop before going to look at the trains.(Very sexist I know, sorry :) You know what I mean though) If you like both then what a great day to live where you do! Have a fantastic day, enjoy yourselves and raise lots of money. TYake care.

Janice said...
