Flowers - of a different sort!


Today we had our CQTeers meeting and had a fun time making a couple of projects. One was these roses made from coffee filters (instructions from Martha Stewart.com) . These were a learning curve for all of us because we had never made them before, so we have learned several things for any we might make in the future. They are coloured with watercolour paints which gives them such lovely shading. I will be making a few more of these so hope to perfect the how-to as I go along.

We did our usual exchange of atc's and also made our own (cheap!) rubber stamps, which I will have to show you tomorrow. Fun day with good friends!

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
