Firstly I would just like to say a huge 'thank you' to everyone who has left me messages this weekend whilst I've been poorly - if ever there was a great 'pick me up' tonic that was it! It was lovely to know that people were wishing me a speedy recovery and it certainly did the trick - I feel much better today although I'm not at work because I'm still a bit sore and the antibiotics have made me feel quite sick! I must have been feeling unwell - hardly even looked at my stash which rarely happens, lol!
I had made a start on this project before I started to feel unwell and I would like to thank the lovely Claudia for the inspiration she gave me here. I couldn't wait to have a go and when I saw the theme over at Tuesday Taggers I decided to slot bookmarks into the apron. I didn't follow a template for the design - just had a go at cutting it by hand and it seemed to work out okay. I have used another of the gorgeous designs available at Squiggle Stamps, this one is Cupcake Girl. Do check out what's available won't you - there are some adorable Christmas Elves which have just landed on the shelves looking very mischevious I must say!!
For the apron I've used MME papers and some Bazzill Just the Edge strips to edge the design (can't you tell I just love these)?! The ribbon and buttons are from my stash and I've coloured my image with Polys. I generated the sentiment on the computer and thought I could hang the apron by my cookbooks and then use the bookmarks when I see something yummy I'd like to cook up. Last night I made a scrummy fish pie with smoked haddock as I needed some comfort food - unfortunately the house pongs a bit today though, lol!
I'm off to have a huge hop around your blogs now - I must have missed loads over the weekend so I can't wait to feast my eyes on lots of beautiful creations!
TTFN and thanks once more for your kind wishes and cyber hugs!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
Everything on this blog is my own work unless otherwise stated. I am extremely flattered if you take inspiration from the things I make and would be happy to visit you and see your work if you have used my designs as a base for creating your own projects. Please do not copy my unique designs and do not lift my work for competition or publication purposes, as this is a breach of copyright and will be reported accordingly. Thank you.
