Then when my M-I-L pass on I inherited her box of threads too. This box was a lot more organized but still had some info missing.
I had so much thread that there was no need to purchase more and I started making my cards using this supply. I am coming to the end of a lot of it now, especially the greens and pinks which work so well in flower designs but what it means is that often I am unable to supply exact colour codes for the cards that I show here.
I am trying to be more systematic so that I can give accurate information where possible but sometimes that is just not going to happen.
A while ago I made a card using a new technique I had learnt called masking.
Today I have a couple of other cards I made using the same technique.
and some sunflowers.
I added some machine zigzag and a button to this one, while blue metal dots completed the first card and black flat backed gems the middle one.
