Well - the craft room move was successful and look what I found

Packed away in one of the boxes.  An ' Antique Pansy' card kit from Ribbon Box.  I bought it at one of the craft shows about 18months/2 years ago.  So now I am relaxing in my lovely new cool and airy craft space I decided to have a go at this.  I still have the rest of the box to sort out but I have achieved something. I have a very kind and sweet next door neighbour who has been nothing but kindness itself to me since the day I moved in here and it is her birthday next month so this will be for her.

Monday 1st Aug
Oops! Following on from the above - when I was putting the remainder of the kit away (enough for two) I realised that I hadn't actually finished the card.   So here it is - finally finally finished.


  1. Pleased you are now settled in your new room Carol. This is gorgeous, I haven't seen these kits at the shows but one of my favourite flowers embellished beautifully.
    Your next door neighbour will be thrilled to receive it for her birthday.

  3. A craft room, how lovely, cant get my husband to move on that one, I just have to wish.
    Beautiful card and lovely ribbon flowers. I can see the move has given you new inspiration.

  4. Beautiful card Carol. I'm sure your neighbour will love it.

  5. Delivered the card next door - hope she likes it.

  6. I discovered that it was my lovely neighbours 80th birthday so I am pleased that I gave her a 'special'. She came round to thank me and it was so rewarding to see how pleased she was with a handmade card. I was told that she has kept all the cards I have made her over the years. So makes up for the nameless someone who gave one back to me once- "she couldn't use it and it was a pity to waste it".
    It still hurts.
