365 Cards Day 189 Charming
Today the challenge is to use a charm...' Easy peasy!' I hear you say. It really should be, but for some reason today I have been sitting staring into space or generally frittering away my time uselessly.
Finally I had to get a grip and do something. I think I was trying to combine challenges and for some reason today, my mind wasn't in combination mode! So One card, One challenge.
A new home card, using a Dovecraft stamp, coloured exactly as it is on the stamp, using pearly paints.
The charm is a little key tied onto the ribbon. I have devised a way to tie a bow using my Easy Bow (or whatever the thing is called that you tie a bow with) adding a charm and joining it to the length of ribbon which had already been stuck onto the card. It's fiddly, but it works and I think you can agree that it does look neat!
I think that my granddaughter may become dextrous too, here is a picture of her, Daisy 2 forks, aged 14 months, out to lunch yesterday eating her pasta.
