Something Completely Different

I'm so busy at work at the minute I've had to dip out of some of the swaps I usually take part in and I've really been missing fat book swaps, I love the 4x4 format so I had to take the chance to make a 'thrinchie' which is the challenge this month at Something Completely Different the theme this week is love and romance.Here is my little love thrinchie (sounds a bit naughty doesn't it lol)

I used l bits from my scrapbox for this, an elusive images heart stamp, some tiny black buttons, organza ribbon and a crystal buckle.
A quick tip - if you have a scrap store locally check it out for some fabby craft bargains. Ours is a charity which collects stuff from local companies that would be thrown away - I popped in for the first time yesterday and was amazed at the amount of stuff they had - everything from magazines, buttons, paper, card, vinyl, wood, and best of all - a HUGE bag of ribbons for £2.38. I was a very happy bunny and will be spending many a happy hour stroking all my lovely new ribbons
Thanks for looking

  7. Wow this is so beautiful Claire. Can I come and stroke your ribbons. I love ribbons and tassels. I see you are a Capricorn, so am I perhaps it has something to do with our star sign. Lol
