Love Notes ....


Time for a Challenge ... The Shabby Tea Room challenge that is (Here) .... Been wanting to do this all week... I (heart) chipboard.... glittered, painted, printed..... love it! 
And there are so many pretty cards to see at the Shabby Tea Room (love that name!!) pop over and see.




Today had been one of those days when patience and confidence need to be practiced ... My son was taking the Express Bus to London this morning and the traffic was so bad we arrived at the bus station to see the bus pull out... (Argh!)
He thought that there was about a 2hr wait till the next one so I hope he got to his destination ok. It was a cold, rainy morning - with the kind of rain that no umbrella is going to protect you from and I had to go into the city to get some things.


Still I got home in time to do some crafting, which usually takes me to another place of calm and serenity.. But it seemed every time I reached for something, a box would fall off the shelf and soon there were tiny buttons and tags and all nature of small things ( the sort that are so hard to pick up) everywhere!
I was not going to be beaten even when I had to stop countless times to answer the phone ( always happens when you are in the middle of some fiddly job??!!)


I was determined to do this challenge!





A cute set of 3 little cards.... all tied up in a shabby wrap........




I got my package from Bety at Iralamija earlier in the week ..ooh! such pretty stuff... I have been dying to use it - all that Melissa Frances paper, chipboard and lace......
It had to be 'Love Notes'......



A bit of  romantic shabby.....




Glitter and roses, chipboard hearts and kisses, hand stamped delicate butterflies, buttons, pins and ribbons....



And finally, I'm done....

Till soon my friends....
