Hope I find you all well today? A cold start to the day here in NE Scotland, minus 3 degrees when setting the kids off to school this morning, bbbrrrrrrr. . .
Today sees the first Challenge of 2011 over at The Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog, and this week we want to see all your NEW stuff. I'm sure many of you had some yummy crafting stash for Xmas - you could break that out - or you could use a new technique, whatever!!
I spotted a new folding technique (well, new to me!) on THIS BLOG which I wanted to try out, and this is the result:
I popped some large metal brads here and there too for some extra blingy touches. The wrap at the front is made using the same card and a dp from the same set at Crafty Chaos, topped with a black RAK from a DT buddy (Thanks hun!) and some more of those fake brad heads, with purple and black organza ribbon to tie with.
Phew! What a long post! But then, this project did take days and days to knock up! All those dies to cut and trim, loads of fiddliness!! Hope it was worth the effort? Just wish I could sell it now. Could do with selling some of my cards. I seem to be getting quite a huge pile under my board. I gave up selling on Ebay a while ago as their overheads became too large and it wasn't worth continuing to sell them there.
Anyroadup - hope you can join in with us at The Delicious Doodles Challenge Blog this week. We'd love to see you there folks!
