Anyway, this backing was printed onto vellum and I'd already cut out the sentiment. And because the boys had been waking up at stupid times this week (4am was the earliest) I thought I'd use my time wisely and get some crafting done. Now at that time I can't really think straight, but after 2 cups of tea I was beginning to wake up a little. The design still needed to be simple so I came up with this.
Eyelets used (from Kath) with the ribbon (recycled from a pack of card blanks - funny how I seem to be drawn to the ones with the ribbon tied round them........) and a few gems added on the sentiment for a bit of bling.
So why did I need to iron? The ribbon was suffering from knot fatigue and it needed ironing out! I very rarely iron - as long as the clothes go in the drier or on the line quickly after the washing machine then they don't really need ironing. However, I have been known to go to work (a number of years ago) wearing a blouse that desperately needed ironing, but I was either too lazy or running late (in the days that I left the house at 6am) so just thought I could keep my jacket on and be ok. But the day was a scorcher and I sweated like a pig but did not dare take my jacket off. Learnt my lesson!!
