21st Birthday ribbons

For this I used the circles of pearlescent card left over from a couple of Christmas cards. Naughty me hadn't put them away!

The card is a 6 inch square in soft white.

I've put a bodice style peel-off onto cream pearlescent paper and cut it out. Onto the back of this i've stuck lots of short lenghts of organza ribbon in pastel colours and used foam pads to secure it to the pink circle.

The greeting is a peel-off as well.

Pearlescent pink pearly self adhesive dots have been used in 2 corners to take away the bareness.

A Round Tuit!

Can't believe it was early December when I last Blogged so I thought i'd better get around to it again.
I have good excuses really for not blogging.

In mid december I went into Hospital for planned surgery, however when the Consultant did her rounds I discovered i'd had a hysterectomy as well as the planned repairs 'down below'.
I was in Hospital for 5 days but really was not up to crafting or much else before our computer went on the blink.

On 27th December my Dad passed away so that really took any inclination I had for crafting and anything else right out the window as you can imagine.
Since then time has passed in a blur of travelling and arrangements but is slowly beginning to get back to something like normality. I still can't concentrate much on crafting but do have a card to get on here at some time which i've done for my niece's 21st birthday which is tomorrow.
I've made a calendar as well but that's not goint to be shown because I forgot to check the pages were in the right order before I bound it and had to prise the whole thing apart and try again. Consequently the wires are a bit squiffy so i'll keep it to myself.
