you remember when I posted a photograph recently of a Chinese New Year card
that I’d made years ago?
I’d posted it as my blog that day was just writing, and I
wanted to add some pictorial interest.
It started me thinking if I could make a similar card using Stampin’
Up! products, and this is what I came up with.
used Action Wobblers to mount the lanterns on my card asthey add so
much dimension and character!
Unfortunately, I can’t recommend
the company I bought them from – in the US – because we had to go
through a “middle man” which – long story short – resulted in me getting
caught with £12.08 customs charges.
The actual product is brilliant and I
recommend them highly – they’re by Hampton Art.
the 17th February, hubby and I are going into London to see the Chinese
dancers in Shen Yun.
lunchtime there was a knock at the door and when I opened it I saw a courier standing there.
He was holding a beautiful bit
of Spring in the shape of a pink wooden trough filled with some
gorgeous Spring flowers, including daffodils and hyacinths.
It was from
hubby as yesterday was our 19th. anniversary. ☺
In case you’re wondering, Toots is one of the pet names hubby has for me!
When I need reminding that Spring is just around the corner, I just look at my beautiful pink trough full of Spring flowers – not long to go now!
That’s about it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting!
