I am so happy that Spring is here. In fact, I think with the temperature we are having, we've gone straight into Summer. IACW is having a Spring Blog Hop this weekend to celebrate the arrival of Spring.
You might have seen previous posts on IACW and on here and you might know that I love adding large bunches of flowers to my background cardstock. I have another one today. I am going to show you how to make some flowers with 1cm ribbons and embroidery thread.
Start in the centre, stitch the ribbon into place. Fold the ribbon approximately 1cm away and stitch over the fold. Continue folding and sewing the ribbon in a spiral to end up with this
I added embroidered stems and some leaves made out of patterned paper and water colour. I also added some jewels to the centre of the flowers.
And a garden bursting with blooms is not complete without some butterflies.
And here is the finished layout
You might have read my previous post about Princess Layer laying her first egg. I am pleased to report that she has been laying an egg everyday since then. Jabba the Hen started laying last Thursday and she has also been producing every day. We have two still not started...roast chicken anyone ?
I will do a draw at the end of the blog hop. For a chance to win a little something from me, please leave a comment on this post. Thank you visiting. I hope to see you again.
Katherine is next on the blog hop so be sure to visit her at Fruit of My Scraps.
