Creating with Accessories

Good Evening everyone!  I would love to actually be doing my blogging in the morning with a nice cup of tea in hand, but the day never seems to start off that way. 

What a rainy day we had!  It is great for my garden and I am so excited for all my perennials to take off and show me their colours.  

Thinking of my garden makes me think of all the pretty silk flowers we have in the Pretties Kit.  These embellishments are the ones I like to hoard.  I am trying to change my ways and start actually using them.  So here is today's post... using the Pretties Kit (pg 175 - IB&C) and the Jumbo Grommets (pg 19 - Occasions Mini).

I dyed the flower with Riding Hood Red Classic Ink and my aqua painter.  I attached the grommet in the middle and then used a glue dot to attach my knotted piece of Riding Hood Red Grosgrain Ribbon into the middle. 

Don't forget about the Stamp-a-Stack Card Buffet on Sat 13 Jun.  We have 18 cards created for you to choose from to make.  It should be a great day.  Let me know if you are interested in attending! Looking forward to stamping with you soon!
