Rain has Stopped

                                                     Hello Everyone

Well, thank goodness it has finally stopped raining.....for now. The water has drained from me very quickly...but lower down the island the people are having a real bad time.

"Harry " is so happy to be out and about again...doing his business rather leisurely without waiting for me and the umbrella...oh! the things we do for these pampered

I have 2 cards to share today...both for challenges this time..

Well this is not a card...but it is the biggest bookmark I have ever seen. I made this especially for a couple of books...'Gone with the wind' and 'War and Peace'.... they are the biggest books I

The bookmark is for a challenge at Meljens designs 'Create a bookmark'.

I have never done a bookmark before..and this is a doozy. Used Meljens designs teacup, inked all the edges, used an old book page for backing paper,a chipboard corner thingy up the top, PC sentiment,
ribbon.lace.flower from my stash....Oh dear...

Next up, Buttons and Mothers...

This was a freebie, coloured with copics, added a few tiny red buttons in the middle of some of the flowers, and mounted the flowers on a fabric swatch, then glued a few more buttons around the corners. A lace ribbon trim around the edge of the card, and the papers are MME...
This is for Craft us Crazy  Mothers - Flowers and Simon says  show some buttons.

There you go...another post done....and hello to 2 new followers, thankyou so much for joining me, and will pop over to you later today...Thankyou everyone for your wonderful comments on my cards..and well wishes with these dreadful storms.I think the worst is its clean up time...[must phone that little man to come by]..I'm too busy...mmmmm
