Thanks SOW much!

Hello. I have a very important task to do today - Find my narrowest Perfect Layers ruler. I use it on nearly every card I make and feel lost without it. I cleared out my craft room yesterday, as I need to use it as a bedroom this weekend, and when I went to use it on a card last night I couldn't find it anywhere! First thing is to check the bag of rubbish I put in the wheelie bin, then I can at least relax, knowing that it is still in the house................somewhere.


For my second poppy card I thought I'd make a little cornfield scene.


I made my own masks to create the fields. I stamped out the poppies, put some scrap paper on top and then held it up to the window so that I could draw a line where I wanted them to go.


I copied this a couple of times with my printer/scanner and then cut out each section as I worked on it.

To finish it off I added a tiny border with my much loved (and missed) Perfect Layers Ruler.

Thanks SOW much! from the Garden Set


Look! Floor! With my Pilates Performer folded up (and in my bedroom) and the gateleg table folded up there's so much room to walk around. It's a shame it can't stay like this.

Must go. Lots to do before my visitors arrive and I need to find that pesky ruler. I hope you have a lovely weekend and that we get to see some of that yellow thing in the sky.

  1. Hope you find your ruler...and that it wasn't too late for the bin! Room looks lovely, it's wonderful to have visitors but so frustrating while they stay as you can't nip up for a bit of crafting.
    Like how you made the mask/s for the poppy fields. Beautiful result. Have fun with your visitors. Hugs, Jeanette xxxx

    1. Thanks Jeanette. It was in the bin bag. I guess it must have slipped in with some papers when I tided my craft desk. It's lucky I noticed it was missing before bin day. They're not cheap!
