Fun, Funky, Fabulous FELT...

Huge apologies for being a bad blogger, I have had some magazine comissions to finish which have taken up quite a lot of my time and added to that, had a dodgy stomach bug which has now taken it's toll on the rest of the family so mostly we are the house of ill at the mo.....

Anyway, one commission down and one to go...

Huge apologies also to Gillian as I am now late with her fabulous dare...

G'day everyone Gillian here, it's my turn to dare you this week, as you may have noticed felt is really hot in the crafting world at the moment, and it's available in so many ways now, in sheet form in a rainbow of colours, precut shapes, beautiful felt borders, even lovely patterned felt and felt with glitter...
So I reckon it's a great medium to dare you with.
So here's the dare, Make a card and include some felt,
the theme & style are entirely up to you,
Can't wait to see what you come up with.


Felt is such fun, I made a card Saturday night but.... the comment that was given (from Jase) involved the words 'pile of' and a word that rhymes with 'Grommet' so I tried again lol. I have to agree that the first card I made may have been a tad busy and might have had a few too many colours - I blame the fact that I was watching 'Any Dream Will Do' that it came out in vivid technicolour.... Looking at the card now, I think that perhaps it is not ever destined to be seen on my blog.... So here is felt card number two....

Paper is Basic Grey and from the Papermill Shop, Funky Zebra Felt and Black felt is from my LSS - Framework Art and Craft, Ribbon from Little Silver Hat, and blanket stitching around the edge, doodling and inking to finish.

That's great Jo - love the combination of the zebra stripes with the florally bits. Not an obvious one but it works!
