Good Afternoon my Dears, It's a gray old day hear in Scotland and quite windy too. I hope the weather is better where you are and that you are all having a nice llazy Sunday.
There's a fab new challenge blog which the sweet Leanne has created and boy is it different, It's called Top Tip Tuesday and it's where you're going to find some fab hints and tips, the whole idea is that you don't have to create a project you just need to post about your tip. I will certainly be having a go at Leanne's gorgeous lace doily flowers as soon as I can find some nice lace doilies.
I love using flowers and lace on my cards, but being a canny Scots woman I'm always looking to save a few pennies!! lol only so I can spend them on other crafty things.
I have a couple of tips for you, I hate using a full strip of pretty lace especially when it's hidden
I would have needed 10 flowers for the length of this card - Oh No!! not me. I measured it and cut off the amount needed for either side of the image.
I also like to coordinate my flowers and can't always get the right colours to match, so I buy lots of either cream or white flowers, I pick out the colours of the image and colour the tips of the flowers either with my Pro Markers or my chalks. Hey presto perfect match.
I hope you find my tips useful.
Have a great Sunday - Suzi xox
