orange vellum & brads and little orange organza ribbon and orange stickles
Yes you are not seeing double at all I did this and when I photographed it something was missing,yes ribbon it had been in my head to do but I forgot so , I think you will agree it looks nicer with a bit of ribbon.
Well hallowen projects are everywhere on the internet,block land .
Well its not really a to bigger deal over here,but it has started beginning to be more popular past few years. I never get any at my door because nobody likes walking down to the end of my house its is dark and trees and spooky I call it "Black hole of calcutta" even my family the big uns ring to say they are going to call so I can keep a look out,so only the brave venture down this far lol!!!! My DS is only 5 so do not think he has clicked onto the trick or treat yet he probably will when Iam on a zimmer frame rofl!!

Well another card made using the Fab Journalling pad from crafty secrets Heartwarming vintage
I love these pads and it is so hard to cut them,well I dont want to part with them ROFL!! well i keep telling myself ,,you can buy another pad,so now convinced myself its just fine to cut them!!!!!
Supplies:sewing machine:image; craft secrets:lace and ribbon from my stash; papers : Anna Griffin
This patterned paper is so not me but after abit of angling and sewing it has grown on me and pleased how it turned out........
Well figuring I might take covers off my suite and wash them I go ahead and do it everything is fine get all dried and back on except the back cushions,well after ages trying to get one back I just gave in or more so caved in, so after retiring to bed it was not a crafty idea that came to me ,it was how on earth I`m I going to get these things back on..... well after laying awake thinking with an idea I put into practice my thoughts,so armed with a big plastic bin liner thought um here goes supplies needs: one vacumn with hose,one kid to turn on and off the machine and one plastic bag. so in cushion goes making a note of where the sticking out bit is so I get it the correct way when it goes in, right after sticking cushion in bag twist the hose around the bag and then keep a tight hold of this twist ,kid turn vac on ,suck the air out and compression the filler ,right off with vac and rush to get this in the cover and gets half in and i can here sssssssh rushing to get has much as I could in wow the air is coming out quick,well what a relief now to get the bag out I made sure my twisted part went to the top so now it was a case of get the bag out ,easy peasy with a little here and there,then the 2nd one who its getting easier....... well I managed it all hooray..... But what I do wonder is HOW do they get them in at the manufacturers anyone know !!?....... So my brainwave worked
Well going to go and do a card or something crafty after a coffee, and my hand is doing alot better,its bending but is so very sore & inflammed see specialist in a week again so maybe I will find out if ulta sounds is a go or no go again,wish it would just go overnight....
