Things are busy here right now, so I'm possibly late commenting if you came to play in the Playground - and I'm certainly not spending very much time in the craft room. But, I did sneak in yesterday for a quick play:
- 4" x 4" square white linen card blank
- a square snippet of plain pink card topped with a square snippet of white linen card
- an uncoloured topper (sadly cut a bit off centre during manufacture - in fact the whole set was a bit like that which is perhaps why they lay forgotten for so long) and a pink oval scallop, both from Craftwork Cards, bought ages ago - I coloured the flowers and leaves using TH Distress Ink markers
- the topper had space for words of your own choosing so I stamped 'Just for You' in Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink using a stamp from the 'Everyday Words Happy Birthday' set by Personal Impressions
Isn't it funny, I thought the uncoloured topper was very ordinary (even allowing for it being die cut off centre) and only picked it out for speed - but in fact do quite like the end result.
Many thanks to those of you who kindly left your thoughts, and some links, regarding the white tool storage 'carousel' I asked about the other day. I should have said at the time - Samuel Taylor's in the UK stocks them - the jury is still out here though. So many really valid pros and cons were put forward - still more thought needed. As Len keeps saying about me, I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure!
