Strawberries and Cream

I have been feeling a little guilty as I have not posted for a week so felt I should get a wriggle on. It's not that I haven't made anything it's just I haven't had time to photograph any thing to a decent standard ( that and it being half term of course!)

Without further adieu here is my very quick post...


I have used another of those fantastic Craftwork card blanks covered in Die Cuts with a View paper Sweets. All of the paper used was from one 12 x 12 sheet. The top is strawberries and the bottom cream stripe yum.. 
In the spirit of using up much neglected stash I rummaged through my collection and came out with some green velvet ribbon ( I don't even remember buying this!) DCWV pad (the shops this was bought from has since closed down about 2 years ago) apiece of white ribbon rescued from a chocolate box and an old button. I used the button and the ribbon to make a rosette. I saw Lisa Jane do a tutorial with felt and set about  making a version with the ribbon.  I like the way it came out but next time I will go a bit smaller.
Last but not least the fantastic digi images is Saturated Canary and she is called hand me downs.


Hope you like it

Hi Jayne, oooh just gorgeous! Love it and that flower is beautiful. Will have to go check out the tutorial. Is the SC image coloured with Primsas or Promarkers this time? I would guess Prismas, you've got a wonderful soft feel to the colouring. Sarah
