The Lost Balloon …

Good evening, thanks for stopping by. It’s Friday tomorrow and another week nearly over, can you believe that!
This has seemed like a short week with not getting to work on Monday because of the snow, it’s not too bad here now but there is more forecast for tomorrow night. The kids will be happy that it’s come again on the weekend and they can spend all day sledging!

Not long now until the launch of the rest of the Lili of the Valley Spring stamps, they will be on sale on Wednesday 30th at mid day UK time. This is one of my favourites and it’s called The Lost Balloon

The Lost Balloon - Jan 

I used these divine papers from one of our 5 new NitWit pads, they will also be available with the new stamps
The scroll is from the Geisha Companion Set and the words are the accompanying sentiments


The gauze was given to me by our lovely Fleur to try and I really like it, it just gives a bit of something extra to the card when you don’t want another layer


The seam binding is from The Ribbon Girl as is the little wooden heart button. I love these buttons and can see me using them a lot, they come in a natural colour so I just tinted it with a bit of distress ink to match the paper and then tied through some button twine


The gorgeous rosebud trim is from our showroom




Hope you like it, enjoy the rest of your Thursday
