Craft Show Buy ...

Hi Everybody,

The card today is much prettier in real life because of the background ... the photo does not do it justice.

It has a gold thread running through the pattern and is very elegant.

It was a craft show buy and it is fabric.  Voile to be factual and there were many colours and patterns to choose from.

It is added to double sided adhesive sheets and then you can cut it down to the size that you require.  I cut mine with the Grand Labels and it cut beautifully.

I added it to a   Faux Nestie   panel of the labels in the cream card and added it with foam tape to the front.

 But this is the bit I wanted to share with you and  how much of a bargain it was.  

Three sheets to each pack and buy one pack and get another one FREE .....Who could resist such a buy  ... er not me !!

£2.50 and I have 12 sheets of voile to add to my cards for a really special look.

The centre of the bow was one of my bargain bracelets from Primark  ... so who is feeling a happy bunny then ???

So to answer some questions I have been getting about the "Give Away" .....

  • The red cross at the side of your name just means that you can delete it if you wish ... it is nothing sinister.  But please delete it if you add your name more than once.
  • You don't need to have a Blog to enter ... just leave the URL box Blank
  • URL is nothing sinister either ... it is just the way that each page on a Blog/Website is found and it stands for Unique Random Locator  ... that's all
  • It doesn't matter where you live you can still enter for the chance to win .... I am happy to send the prize to you where ever you are
And if you haven't added your name yet then here is your chance ..... Wild Orchid Flowers.  ... I can't believe how many of you want this prize, there are over 700 names so far and we have till Saturday before the winners are chosen.

If you spot any duplicates then please let me know as it is getting rather hard to scan them all now

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
