I am sorry I couldn't put out a post yesterday, but I was having a bit of a rough time. I am having a better day today so thought I would so something a little different again. I am trying lots of different things at the moment as I try to find the right groove for my blog. The way it's going I think it will always stay a bit of this and a bit of that. We will have to see, who knows it may be fun that way.
Ok, so what is Showcase about, well today it's about a lovely lady who became a follower of my blog and liked it enough to not only come back again but also to send me some of her work.
Her name is Christine Harrop
and here are some of her 'Box Cards'.
So what do you think, aren't they elegant and stylish? Thank you so much Christine for sharing them with me and for allowing me to showcase them here on my blog. I adore the simplicity of the design and the focus being on the lovely stamped verse.
I think these would be perfect with stands attached to the back for use on a table top or with wall hangers so they could become instant wall art for the receiver (of course Christine, you may have done that already). This idea has vast appeal and can be adapted in so many ways. A gift and card in one that could be perfect for the 'one who has everything' or for that one person who is 'always hard to buy for'. What an inexpensive way to alter you home decor too. Everytime you fancy a change: a different colour or verse for example, just get out your crafting stash and design to suit. Interchanging and recreating whenever you need a make-over but can't afford the drapes (so to speak!)
Well I hope you like Christines creations and enjoyed having something new and different to view. Maybe you have something you are proud of that you would like showcased here, if so email me and I will try to put yours on the next one. Don't forget it doesn't have to be just a card, it could be an altered item, a scrapbook page, a tag or a picture; as long as it's handcrafted by you, or even your family, then it will be considered. And don't forget to email me your quotes too if you would like them considered for my Monday Quote Day posts.
Bye for now but don't forget to pop by again tomorrow as I have another bookmark style for you and this one has two ways to use it too.
Have a great day and Smile 'cos the chances are someone will smile back at you!
Ps I have a Candy post at 12noon, I think it's a good one and some of you will be pleased I am almost certain.............so pop by if you can. Big hugs x
