Sunday Newspapers

All the junk from living room is in the dining room blocking the little bit of light we had today, consequently my photo are even more rubbish than normally. I've made an easel card for the Just Magnolia challenge using Friday sketchers sketch.
I've use a new Tilda and My Minds Eye Penny Lane which I brought from The Range while visiting MIL. Since Tilda is holding newspapers I thought I would make shabby chic flowers using papers with text on. I found an old computer manual and punched the circles out of it, crumbled them, inked the edges and then sprayed Glimmer Mists in pearl and irridescent gold. They have a lovely sheen but of course the camera doesn't show it.
My parcel from Monaco Direct came with my Leone-em punch Yippee one happy crafter but it could be that the fern punch that I've used today may have also arrived in the parcel whoops.
I can't believe that my list of crafty stuff to do is getting longer but now the major decorating is done just a few snags to sort out like finishing the fireplace and curtains and waiting for some new furniture.
