Pink and Flowery!

Hello friends
Apologies to those who have emailed me and it has bounced seems to be behaving 
badly at the moment but hope to have it sorted soon.

The Spellbinders Summer Spectacular continues..such amazing dies with brilliant innovative ideas.
Lots of You Tube videos to watch - they explain so well how each of these new dies work.
My reveal day is Thursday so please stop by if you can.
I'm afraid you will all want to go shopping...! :)

Thank you for your kind comments yesterday - the very authentic cobwebs come in a spray!
I did not know this but yes, apparently you can buy it and spray it over where you need..
I'm afraid to admit if I look up right now I have a genuine cobweb above my head...
I think crafting has taken over from housework right now!

Delighted you liked Christmas on Saturday.
I've discovered that Frosty Forms are available in the UK from Create and Craft and also here.
For the etching cream, Etch-All is unavailable here at the moment but Fred Aldous has some etching cream - it's not the cheapest crafty item but I have to say it lasts and lasts because you can scrape what you don't use back into the bottle and re-use it. card  today- I cannot recall whether I have shared this with you before! 
I came across the image in one of my computer files and thought I would share it with you today.
It's flowery, light and full of Summer...mmm what's this 'Summer' word I keep hearing!?
I've used Rose Creations to cut the pretty fabric and just added a brad for the middle.
Combined some lace, punched kraft cardstock and the backing paper is a piece of 
Cath Kidston notepaper.
Spot the tiny dotty butterfly..?  
Have a great day friends, take care.

Hi Christine, I have bought some flowery fabric to try making flowers for a change. Lovely card and sooooo summery. We have some sun this morning, how long will it last? Had a quick peek at majestic dies and yes I want them.

Hi Christine - what a lovely card, never used fabric with my dies yet, but may have to have a go, I just love the effect of this flower. Did you use some sort of interfacing on the back of the flower pieces so you could mold them?

maybe the sun will shine for a bit today!

Hi Christine, This is a beautiful summery card!! This is just what we need to cheer us up in cloudy Cornwall!....(Still it's not raining so that's good!!)....and yes, I see the butterfly..:)..I love them too...I must make some flowers from fabric as the one on your card is gorgeous! Also I should think they feel very floaty and soft...Enjoy your day...xx
