I was quite taken with the current GINGERSNAP CREATIONS CHESTNUT THEME challenge
Words of Wisdom
as one of my favourite stamps is "Be thankful for what you have" which I thought came from an English poem. How wrong! googling it reveals that Oprah Winfray is the instigator of this quote! Anyway I still love it and of course it is so true.
I have been making some different kinds of paper flowers this week having seen a number of new tutorials around various sites. This flower is made from cardstock from the Tim Holtz Co-ordinations Distress Collection which is quite thick and a bit difficult to mould but dries an absolute treat! I used Donna Salazar's Rose dies and it reminds me of an old English hedgerow rose.
Our local picture framer gave me a whole bag of offcuts which are super for making a hanging and the white core card seems to take Distress Stains beautifully without bubbling up.
Do have a look at the entries into this challenge as the entries are very varied and there is some stunning work. Many of the quotes would be good inspiration for scrapbookers too.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
