Rose Bird Topiary and Winning Ticket

Hello friends

How is your weekend going?
I really enjoyed my day at the NEC on Friday,
had a fun time with my crafty pals 
and caught up with some familiar faces.


The weather was quite nice when I set off to Birmingham but then
just when I thought it was safe to talk about Spring the snow is back!
Goodness it has turned cold again, I know this because of I have
'cold detectors' in the form of cats and a dog, they like to dash
outside, make sure their paws are freezing and then jump on my lap to
let me estimate the near zero temperature!  Love them really.

I did venture to the cabin and created this 
project using Rose Bird Topiary.


I've used gold mirror card for the die cut 
and mounted this onto a Hemstitch Rectangles frame.
The patterned paper matted on the ivory card base is a 99p store bargain.


The die set has an additional label die which is a lovely shape on its own.


I had this topper laying around on my craft desk and because it has a 
butterfly it needed to be used.


Items used with clickable links (all in stock):


Now, time to delve into those charity kit bags and see if you have the 
winning number.  This month it is...


If you have the winning number - congratulations and please email:
hope-chances@live.co.uk
with your details and your goody bag will be sent out to you.

Take care friends and keep warm.

Morning all.
Thank you a lovely little card.
Congratulations to the winner have fun.
Yes Christine we have the white stuff too, roll on the long balmy evenings.
I think we should hibernate all winter, and wake up to strawberrys and cream, or ice cream all summer, we need to get fat for the winter.
Take care and keep warm Kitty.
