Papertake Weekly GDT Card - Tie Up Your Loose Ends

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Sorry I've been missing in action for few days I've had severe withdrawal from a certain pill I'm on as the prescription didnt get done last week, so I had to go 4 days without, so its been a weekend of suffering. I tried go down Ben & Megans on sat as I dont like letting the kids down but ended up back at home an hour later & in bed for the afternoon.

Anyhoo's I did manage to finally make my GDT last night for the new challenge over at
 Papertake Weekly, this week its.............
A fab challenge & come on who doesnt like bows ;0)
Now you know when you have an idea in your head, yeah well this didnt turn out the way I wanted it to, but its starting to grow on me...........I think lol.....
No image cus its hard to colour with the shakes, funny though lol. This is a 'Thank you' card for Ben & Megan give to their nanna (my step-mum) as she has helped them out with moving. I'm putting a thankyou verse on the inside.

I just went with dies, flowers & of course a bow.

The die underneath the flowers is a new die MB 'Lavish Branch' & I added 2 cus I loved it so much ;0)
Also added Marianne 'Corner', love this corner die I think its my fave corner die ;0)

Papers are MME & the key charm is idea lol, I think maybe Ebay... Also added
 'Cheese cloth' & some 'Jute fabric' for a bit of texture.

I used Cheery Lynn 'Birdcage' die & then drew around the die on some music backing paper to put behind it, raised it up a bit & added a MME brad to the top. I also cut out Marianne 'Bird On Branch' die. The button & ribbon are from my stash. Inside of course was decorated as always.

Ingredients used............
MME papers - MCH
Cheese Cloth fabric - Live & Love Crafts
Marianne CReatables 'Corner' die - MCH
All Flowers - WOC
Jute fabric - Live & Love Crafts
Cheery Lynn 'Birdcage' die - MCH
MB 'Lavish Branch' - MCH
Melissa Frances 'Pearls' - MCH
Marianne 'Bird On A Branch' die, ribbon, button, charm & card from my stash.

Teresa at My Crafty Heart has some fabulous new MB dies now in stock, also the next new release of Saturated Canary rubber stamps is due about the first week in Feb, pop on over & have a peekskie around ;0)

Hope you will join us all for this fab challenge.

I'm off to do a bit of catching up before I start the housework, but will catch up with the rest of you later.
Thank you sooooooooo much for your continued support, it means the world to me mmwah.
Tatty bye my lovelies xxxxxxxxxxxx
