Time to wind down

How pleased I am to get the Advent frame No 1 out of the way, 5 more to go, although I have had a few more enquiries, so looks like I may be busy over the next few weeks.  I think my right arm will be well developed after cutting out all the box bases and lids. with only one set of dies you can only cut a lid and base then through it goes again to be embossed then comes the glueing. oh boy what have I started.

Thank you so very much for having a look at my blog and making your comments I really appreciate you spending time looking/commenting.

This card is one I made a while ago and I cannot be exact on products used but it is one I like.  I kept it flat as it was going through the post otherwise I would have built up the Asters a bit more.

Ingredients are (I think)

A4 White Card, Pink Card all from my box of tricks
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Flora for background
Spellbinders Floral Ovals
Spellbinders Aster Flower Topper
Sentiment was a Creative Expression stamp I believe but don't quote me on that
Tim Holtz Spun Sugar distressed ink pad
Glitter, ribbon and gems from my stash

And that is it, quick and easy, don't you just love these type of cards now and then ..

I am looking forward to 27 October as I am visiting SECC Glasgow for Hobbycrafts show, just love going there I have a tin bank which I try to fill and that gives me  money to spend and I don't feel so guilty bring home my secret stash.

Well ladies that's enough from me tonight.  Once again I eagerly await your comments/suggestions.

  1. A very pretty card your embossed background and your pretty flowers


  2. Lovely card Wilma. Love the embossing and the floral oval.

  3. Very pretty indeed Wilma. I love the way you have laid the flowers across the card. xx Flora

  4. Hi Wilma,
    Pretty in Pink, a lovely card, if you like the piercing round the edges like Sue does, you definitely need the Tim Holts ruler, as the holes on it are much closer together than some of the other products, I got mine from, there is no postage and it is one of the cheapest sites I have found for Spellbinders and Tim Holts products.
    Have a crafty Sunday.

    1. Hi Michelle, I hae the ruler not practised enough yet to feel confident to use it on my cards.



  5. Hi Wilma,
    such a pretty card, love the pink, and those aster dies look great.
    I hate making flat cards that have to go in the post, but needs must,
    because of the postage costs.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Good Morning Wilma,
    Love it! the colours, the layout, everything, a beautiful card.

    I am going to Glasgow on the 27th, not a lot of spare time for coffee and a chat but we could maybe meet just to say "hello" chat later about that.

    Have a Great Day

  13. Gorgeous pink and white card Wilma, love the embossing too.

    Came for a nosey when I saw your blog name at Snappy Crafts. I'm looking forward to the SECC on the 27th too.

    I had a lovely look round and I'm really impressed with your Advent Frame. I once made an Advent calendar for my grandkids from a Kaisercrafts kit.

I just popped over to look at yours - I meant to yesterday after seeing your comment on Christine's blog about your advent calendar box...just had a look and it's fabulous! I made a summer box one earlier this year and hoping I get time to make the advent one! Love your card and am now following you, Carole Z X
