Fabulous Friday - A bit of a Weave

Happy Friday everyone.  Are you having a great week?

The clocks go back an hour, this weekend, here in Canada. Are you ready for the darker mornings and shorter daylight days?

Editing the above sentence for my husband - who is so bored at work that he is nosing at my blog LOL!

"The clocks go back an hour, this weekend, here in Canada. Are you ready for the lighter mornings and darker early evenings.  You also get an hour's extra sleep - if hubby minds his own business he might too LOL!"  luv you xx

I'm not to keen on these Winter days, but hey that's what my craft room is for - to cheer me up :-)

Anyways, we have the start of new challenge over at Polkadoodles.  All our challenges are now Anything Goes, so what's stopping you - you craft - you enter :-)

Our DT brief this fortnight was to weave some paper for our creations.  I have used one of the new collections - Winnie Winterland for this card today.  I started off by weaving my papers.

Then I used the stocking from the collection, to make a window in my top layer of the card (using Silhouette Design Studio).  Then all I had to do was place the weaved piece underneath :-)

I cut out another stocking a little bit larger than the window, so that I could use the top of the stocking for my card.  I then used the Flowers 2 Die and the Super Sprigs Die to add a flower to the top of my stocking.

For the inside I used one of the tags and made it a little wider, that's why I love working with digital collections, you can change to suit your needs :-)

I used another tag and bow for the front, adding a little foam tape to add some dimension to the bow and a little bit of glitter.

I love how this turned out and loved the paper weave.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
