Good morning everyone. Hope all is well with you and yours. I'm back at work following a few days off but today is a non working day so I shall be watching to see what Mr Lockwood has up his sleeve.
Got a touch of costochondritis again so riding the storm on the crest of Ibruprofen lol!!! It flairs up every 6 months or so but hey ho!
Thank you for your comments on Nesta's florals. She is currently sunning herself in Spain so I'm very jealous.
Lovely to see a few ladies back from travels and busy lives.....Lesley, you sound as though you have had an interesting time.
Now, today's offering is my DT creation for MAWTT and I picked the theme for this challenge which is...................
My Favourite Things,
as in the song from The Sound of Music, one of my favourite films.
Please pop over and see what the other girlies have come up with and the words from the song are on the blog if you would like to join in and enter the challenge or just have a sing song.................go on, you know you want to lol!!!
I've gone for a BOGOF.........the raindrops on roses and the brown paper package tied up with string
Pink pearlised card (thought the raindrops would show up better on it)
Patterned paper from First Edition Bird Song 8x8 pad
Embossalicious Tumbling Leaves embossing folder
SB Bitty Blossoms dies
SW Laurel Leaves dies
John Lockwood Flower Heart Elements stamps (sentiment)
Anita's 3D Gloss (raindrops)
Bundled Sage and Victorian Velvet DI
Rhubarb Stalk Memento Dew Drop ink
I wanted it to look like a gift of flowers in an unfussy package. I stuck the brown paper to some card and then bowed it out from the card to give it a more 3D look.
In hindsight, I'm wishing I made the "package" smaller as it does look a lot of brown but you live and learn.
Sooooo, over you go to MAWTT to join in the fun. See, even Aldi have jumped on the bandwagon and are using the song for their Christmas advert hahaha!!!
