Rosettes thank you!

Evening, all! I must apologise again for being MIA: we have had a most frustrating time with our Internet coverage, in fact after 15 years with Virgin we are changing to BT next week. I hope that will be an improvement, it costs a bit more but at least you get the service you pay for!

Rant over!

This rather vibrant Thank You card has been received by the person who it was made for, so now I can blog it. Brace yourselves, chaps, it's bright!


The papers are all snippets, even the orange and white card. The purple paisley is from a Papermania Capsule collection pad, and I think the orange papers are from the orange pad in the same series.

I used a Tim Holtz die to cut out both rosettes, folded them and glued the ends together and added the circle in the middle.

Does anyone else get excited when you press down on the middle of this frankly boring concertina and then - pop! - it all squishes together into a rosette? No? it must be just me, then!

The orange die-cut is made with a Spellbinders Parisian Accents die, it's so pretty! The sentiment was a loose acrylic one from my 'sentiments' file which means it was a freebie from somewhere. I like the clean font.

I used a Perlen pen to make rows of dots along the outer edges of the sentiment strip, and that, as they say, is that!

While we had no Internet last week I made a few more cards, I'll blog them over the next few days - assuming I can get online. Grrr!

How soon we adapt to new technology, even 10 years ago I wouldn't have cared about getting online, now it seems a necessity!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone, and thanks for looking!

I love bright colours - this is stunning.

It always takes me ages with those rosettes - I wish they would just pop! They bounce about like mad before I get my little circle on them - whats your secret?
