TGIF

Hello friends

TGIF !!!! We had a public holiday yesterday and I've taken a day's leave to make it a long weekend.  I love them.  For me it is an extra day I get to catch up on some crafting.  This morning I woke up at 6am, made myself a cuppa tea and set to work at my craftdesk whilst it was still quiet and dark outside.

I decided to use some of those scraps of paper we have piling up in our drawers to make a few very simple cards for my Mom to keep on hand.

Thought I would share the 3 I made this morning with you all. 


The card itself is 10,5 x 15cm.  I plan to make quite a few and will be sharing them on my blog.  I hope this will inspire you to get hold of those scraps you have piling up.  Why not make a few for the folks in an old aged home near to you.  They will be so appreciative.  I think I'll be making packs of 5 or 10 for the ladies that live in the same house as my Mom... for Christmas.

For the local working girls, if you have a day's leave today.... ENJOY IT!  The weekend is here.  I may just go visit Super Floral in Paarden Eiland.  If you have not yet visited this warehouse, you are in for a HUGE surprise.  When you see all their ribbon, you will feel as if you've just stepped into crafty heaven.  You can buy them as whole reels, very inexpensive!  If you're looking for baskets, teddies, silk flowers, dried flowers, oasis, tapes, packaging, christmas decorations, whatever.... you'll find it there!  Just don't blame me if you spend too much money now!!! lol
