that is the challenge theme chosen by Glenda for the next 2 weeks at
we would love to see any card or project for the special lady in your life.
For a little inspiration I have made a gift for my mum, I wanted to make a Tussie Mussie but while trawling through Pinterest I found a Gift Cone template by Lori Stanton. I printed it off and created this
I have taken several pictures at different angles.
I used Sherri Baldy image 741 Patchwork Patti, I coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics then cut her out and adhered her to a stick. I used Dovecraft's Sweet Paris paper collection to decorate then added 2 different types of lace, pink organza ribbon, string of pearls, sentiment plus one stamped sentiment in a frame which was also adhered to a stick, I filled the cone with pink tissue paper then topped it with flowers, the outer cone I added different sorts of flowers. Finally because the cone has a point I added some twine at the rear so it could be hung on the wall but I thought it would be nice to stand it in a mini crystal vase, I have had a set of 2 for many years just doing nothing, using them this way they are finally filled with lots of love.
I thought that mum would be able to stand this on her mantelpiece so she could see it everyday for, hopefully, years to come.
I would like to enter my project into the following challenges
I want to send you all a warm heartfelt THANK YOU for your response to my last posting I was over the moon to have received so many wonderful comments, thank you.
