Good morning my crafty friends and what a lovely morning it is here in Norfolk,the sun is shinning and all the birds are singing,it doesn't get more perfect than that.
It's that time of the month when I post my DT card for http://gruffiesandguests.blogspot.co.uk/ and for this months challenge it is Love is all around/anything goes and I thought I would do something different this month so I used my new Xcut gift bag die to create this gift bag. I cut it out from some co-ordinations card stock and embossed it with my creative expressions cascading hearts folder and then sanded it to highlight the hearts. It really bought the bag to life and looked good as it was without and embellishments. But of course I wasn't going to leave it there,I had a house mouse image with it's name on it. Then I made up some flowers using a script backing paper and inked them up with a tea stain distress ink and a momento pink ink. The dies I used for the large rose flower were the S$-312 Blossom three nestabilities spellbinders set which I cut into to create the petals,then shaped and layered them up. In the background is my newest purchase a memory box die Shrewsbury stem which I love, Inked it up with the same distress inks and added a little glitter to the buds. I also added a few stems and some leaves and then chose this wonderful ribbon which I bought at the Range in several colours and love the metalic shimmer it has going through it and made this bow and added a button and some stick pins. The image is from the house mouse tripple CD and I have decoupaged it so as I love to bring these little mice to life. I hope you all like it,I am very please with how it turned out and I think this project has broken my lack of mojo and put the spring back in my step
