All blue

Hello all.I am delighted to be able to blog tonight,we must have had one of the wildest days ever.The wind was brutal and non stop,thankfully it seems to have calmed down for now.This photo was taken with my phone and I don't think it came out too bad,This was made at on siopa bui ages ago and was probably one of the first easel cards I made.I love all the blue and was happy with it{I think it was a hero arts stamp}.goodnight.........philomena

Long day

Hello all,well it has been a long day that started at 6.30 this morning{no matter what I did there was no sleep after that}I am now waiting to go and collect hubby from the local,such a bad night.I seen Sue Wilson making this type of frame on one of her spellbinders shows on c&c.Very easy to do and I think that this one will be a standard wedding card for me now.I was trying to use up gem strips for the swirls,they didn't turn out that good and when I tried to get them up the pearl card was coming too so I left them alone.Just got a call he has a lift home so I can go to bed.Goodnight...............philomena

2nd ribbon card

Hi again,this is the 2nd card from my class and I think its my favorite.Actually its the ribbon I love and its so simple to do,needle and thread and a few zig zag stiches and your there.Sorry about the poor quality photo,the light was not the best when I actually thought about the cards.............philomena

Hello all.If you are wondering what ribbonmania is,it's the name of the class i taught last weekend.I promised that i would put the photos up.This

ribbon was the result of a mistake,I was trying to dye organza ribbon [ended up with red fingers]and then I had to dry it and the heat gun melted the ribbon.I have to say that it was a light bulb moment and I've been melting since.This will not work with satin ribbon,it goes black and burns[I tried}.I had to leave the card plain because it was the technique I wanted.Hope you like it...........philomena
