A secret message!



Hi again everyone,

Here is my card I have made for this weeks a spoon full where the theme was 'a secret message'
This card has taken two days to make....no I'm not normally that slow...but as I was putting it together, I ran out of tape!!!....have you ever heard of such a thing....a crafter with no tape!!!
So a quick trip to the shops yesterday and voila!, my new card.

This card is a tribute to my blog candy win, as I have used quite a few things from my goodie box....the image, the ribbon and the flowers.



Here is the secret message (two actually!), inspiration from all sorts of places but mostly from Camilla (although I didn't actually use a toilet roll!)

So here are the details:
  • Image: hAngler from my sweet friend Hanne
  • Medium: Watercolour pens
  • Paper: I really don't know but I think they are fab...perhaps someone can help
  • Ribbon, flowers and brad from stash (I can say that now lol!)
Thanks for stopping by, have a super sunny Sunday
