I haven't vanished!

Although I feel like I have been away from blogland for ages! It seems like every waking minute I am spending on the computer working on my business and trying to read and learn as much as I can to make it a success. And now the summer holidays are here so Thomas is at home and he doesn't like mummy being on the computer for too long! I can see a lot of early mornings and late evenings over the next 5 weeks!

I'm really missing my card making but I'm finding the thought of spending a couple of hours colouring an image and assembling a card is putting me off from even setting foot into my craft room. I'm determined to find a bit space in the day for 'me time' so I think that clean & simple is the way to go for now. These cards still take me a long time though as I dither over colour combinations/sentiments/embellishments!

So this card uses FTL150 from the Clean & Simple blog. I've used Kraft card for my base and bazzil card for the layers.

I gathered the seam binding by grabbing a single thread with my tweezers and giving it a pull! The idea came from this gorgous card by Kati. This picture shows the layered butterflies a bit better.

And I just had to take a close up of this gorgeous metal flower brad. This is the sort of embellishment that sits in my drawer and is looked at regularly but never used! It was perfect for this card though so I took a deep breath and opened the packet!

I'd love to know what you think. Enjoy the rest of your week.


Wild Rose Studio DT

>> Friday, 8 July 2011

Wow, its been a hectic few weeks but my new business is now up and running. The Fitwear Boutique www.thefitwearboutique.co.uk sells luxury yoga, Pilates and fitness clothing. So far I've had great feedback and yesterday I made my first sale which was really exciting. If you get the chance to take a look at the site I'd love to know what you think. And if you do like it please give it a mention on your blog with a little link as this will really help my Google rankings!!!!!

Onto my card and I'd like to show you a Wild Rose Studio DT card. This is Milton with Sunflower. I chose to go with a pink sunflower so I could use the fabulous Wild Rose Studio Valetta Garden papers.

I have some more of these adorable stamps to play with so hopefully I'll get a chance later this evening. Have a great Friday.
