its amazing what you can find when you try - Fairytale challenge #6 Flowers + The Sweetest thing-sweet sunday sketch challenge 101

Good morning everyone are you all fit and well I hope so, there seems to be loads of nasty bugs doing the rounds doesn't there, I hope you have have managed to duck them so far...now the last time I was having a crafting day I was having a rummage for some papers when I came across a box, oooohhhhhhh don't you just love a mysterious box, it was full of fabulous flowers, the sort that have bust out of their packets or the last one in the pack sort of thing, the flowers I used for today's card were in there too, now how on earth do you forget you have these stashed, I also found a pile of 6x6 papers that had fallen out of their pads, I think the flowers are from Prima...the image is of course a Simply Sassy girl, this one is Bella Bunting coloured with Distress inks and paper pieced, you sick of seeing my paper piecing yet?...the papers are definitely K&Co but I have no idea which pad they are from, I finished my card with a saddle stitched ribbon and a Tim Holtz sentiment ticket...the fab sketch is from The Sweetest Thing and I'm also entering this for the Fairy Tale flower challenge too...I'm off to have another rummage you never know what I will find next, I really must stop stashing things in safe places and forgetting about them lol...have a brilliant day everyone

Bella looks adorable and I could never tire of your paper piecing! It's great when you find stash! I'm still trying to sort out my stuff and keep coming across things I had forgotten I owned. Too much stash is the issue of course - but not a problem! Hugs, Lesley

Lorraine said...

Such a pretty card with those papers & gorgeous flowers! I love "finding" or re-discovering beautiful craft items that I stashed away. I have those types of roses stashed somewhere too - um, I tend to have a hoarding problem when it comes to the really pretty stuff, lol!
