A big hello to my New and regular followers, you are very welcome, hope you like my craft projects and story's!
Been a bit busy this week (what else is new!).
Our hallway has a gorgeous (Old) Parquet wooden floor which we have had hidden under a carpet for about 15 years. We always knew it was there lurking, asking to be "Set Free", but we kept it covered!!
About three weeks ago (over breakfast) hubby said "When I am off work for my weeks holiday, I want to try to repair the old hall floor"! I was a bit shocked, but very excited.
Well to cut a long story short (like I can do that!) It needed a few replacement tiles (they are about 2"x5" size), wood stain, glue and varnish, and we are on the staining part at the moment.
I have to admit, we are delighted with it. At the end of the day it is a solid wood floor which I am sure would cost us an arm and a leg to replace if we had to.
Onto today's card. I hope you like it.
I was asked by my daughter's friend to make her a cute Birthday card, so this is what I came up with. The image is LOTV, but is a Topper and not a stamped image, so not coloured by me! Makes a change from all that colouring, and I have been so busy, I did not feel under presure when making it. I have used my favorite colour combination, I just love pink and green together.
I have used the LOTV Elephant Topper, some gorgeous Bo-Bunny papers, some gingham ribbon and Hobbyhouse pearls.
After half an hour of swearing and paper throwing, I finally came up with the Martha Stewart "Punch round the Page" Pansy square that is under the image...Grrrr
What a nightmare. For some reason I ALWAYS have a problem getting it spot on....But In the end after persevering I finally did it, and have now kept an example to keep for the future!!!
