CCT Soft Furnishings



Challenge 23
This week the theme for the challenge is
Soft Furnishings
you can use fabric, ribbon, stitching, buttons etc, anything you can find on the soft furnishings in the home ie curtains, cushions, sofas etc.

I have used this K&CO silk ribbon which reminds me so much of my Grandmas Eiderdown (are you old enough to remember these). She used to have it on her bed all the time and in winter it was covered with a bedspread!!!

This is the first time I have used an A5 card for months at least I think that's the size and it really didn't feel right I do love my square ones.

The image is one sent to me by a friend.. I can't wait until we can start buying these little babies I just love them and the sentiment is stampabilities.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

This is lovely Sue, I cannot wait to buy these stamps too. I know what you mean about A5 cards, I make them every now and again but I don't like them as much as my square cards. x
