Boy am I glad this week is over! I was creating but it was a tough one. I even had to miss the first two days of the craft fair at the SECC...that has NEVER happened hmph. Unfortunately I can't show you what I was creating just yet but I do have this little beauty....

Clear Vase Delight is another image I coloured up WITHOUT choosing the pp first doh! I didn't like it when I'd finished...I thought the colours were a bit insipid but when my new MME Miss Caroline Dolled Up paper pad arrived from Hayley it was like they were made for each other :-D

I added Glossy Accents to the vase to make it look like it was filled with water

Now...what do you thunk of this Loopy Bloom??? Isn't it fabulicious! I used some cotton fabric I bought last week when I was out with Nic doing wedding stuff. You have to use Heat & Bond with the fabric so it has a bit of body and doesn't fray when cutting with the die.

I bought the Die-namics Mini Pennant dies from Dies to Die For and used one for a sentiment

You can see the LB sticks out a bit but it's gorjusness makes up for it :-D

Hi Kerry, flip me this is just gorgeous and I am in love with the flower. Funnily I hunted out some old fabric samples and thought they would look great as flowers:) You have inspired me if ever I get the chance to play. Loads of orders this week again so will be in hibernation;( Did you go get that software!! You won't regret it.
