Here's another quick make, I decided to make a tag for a bottle of wine which i was giving to a friend, it just made it a little bit more interesting, i made another one of those tissue flowers, i cant seem to resist those at the moment.

While blog hopping i came across this gorgeous tissue paper flower, it was really simple to make. I used my nestabilities scallop circles and cut out 4 in red tissue paper and 2 out from patterned paper, i used a page from an old french book, next pierce the middle and put a brad in then scrunch all the layers up (it does look really messy), carefully open them to how you want, they look fantastic on projects and i have used them on lots of different things.
Don't forgot to enter the blog candy below :)

Where has the week gone? Its flown by again, i've been busy trying to be organised this week, i'm determined to do things straight away instead of prograstinating all the time!!
I've got some fantastic news, Maddy has agreed to join us on the Design Team which is fabulous as her work is so inspirational, im looking forward to seeing what she has done with the January Blooms Kit - Frosted Lace.
I've got some blog candy on offer, I'm just in the process of putting some gorgeous ribbon bundles together, the first one being Black Forest Gateaux, 10m of gorgeous shades of pink, black and burgandy ribbon.
if you leave me a message and spread the word i will draw one lucky winner on Sunday evening, they will receive the ribbon bundle and 2 bags of card candy.
Good luck!

I hope you all had a good weekend. I wanted a catch up this weekend but you know when you are just not in the right mood to do those things that you should be doing and then on Monday morning you really wished that you had made a start, well i have an order of 36 cards to make, but i just couldn't get started. I will start tomorrow!!
Instead i thought i would spruce up a couple of plain white candles using the January Blooms Kit - Frosted Lace

These would make really nice gifts put into a gorgeous altered gift bag.

Will be back tomorrow with some blog candy and some DT news.

Its been snowing all day to day but just hasn't settled, thank goodness!
I have taken stock of some gorgeous new card candy which can be found here.
I have altered this little box from WH Smith that i bought in the sale, I needed somewhere to keep all my stamped images, I want to try and colour a few images so i always have them ready to make a card with. The pearl and the ribbon tied through the buttons have been recycled from christmas crackers :)

Well i thought i would wake up to 40cm of snow this morning, i was disappointed when i didn't! Its now turned very chilly and is very slippery outside.
I love this stamp, i bought her last november at the NEC, she is such a cutie.
Have you seen the new January Blooms Kit - Frosted Lace it bursting with deliciousness :)
Have a good evening.
