Variation on a Theme

Well needless to say today's posting is not the one I intended.  My project like Pam (pamscrafts) is taking more time than I anticipated. In order to get things lined up I need a good light and this afternoon it rained and rained and rained so I could not get the light I needed.  Will have to invest in one of those lamps that make it look like you are working in daylight.  Sorry to keep you hanging on (hope it is worth it) but tomorrow, yes tomorrow. 

Did you see I had 14 comments on my last posting and new followers as well. Welcome Sue P (Planet Susie) and Michelle (happy2craft).  When I first set out on the Blogging Scene I never for one moment believed anyone would comment on my creations but how wrong. and want to follow my blog.  It's just amazing and I am loving every minute of it, in fact I am spend too much time browsing and not crafting.

This card is a variation on a theme.  It's using Sue Wilson (particraft) designed lattice motifs and accents which I used on "Just to Say" post.

Ingredients for this Card are

My usual 8x8 card (just love this size)
Creative Expressions Foundation Card in Coconut White
Paper is from Forever Friends New Arrival 12 x 12  double sided paper pad
Spellbinders Lattice Motifs and Accents
Butterfly is a Marianne Design
Pearls and sentiment from my stash

This was one of my earlier cards pretty basic but now I am learning to expand a bit.

As usual I eagerly await your comments/suggestions and thank you for all the previous comments/suggestions you have made.  I am touched by the way you ladies have helped and advised me.  I am going to have a notebook by my side when I read the comments so that I can thank each helpful person personally, because by the time I get to posting my mind has gone blank on who said what.

Have a good day tomorrow.

    1. Thanks for that Patricia, will have a look we have a store in Glenrothes. That gift bag tutorial was on Amazing Paper Grace Blog in Becca's tutorials but as you say you cracked it, clever lady, you are very talented.
