All dressed up and nowhere to go...yet! ;-)

Fancy a night out on the town with me?

Get your gladrags on then!

As you can see I've a rather trendy wardrobe , with some 'fetching little numbers' from which to choose!!

When I saw this (very simple) idea in a magazine, over a year ago, I thought ,
' Right, I can do something like that! ' ;-)

I completely forgot about it until last week, when I was looking here:

12 mini hangers met my eyes.

And so a fun card making session began yesterday, when I had to wait in for a delivery.

You can do this too... if you so wish!

(I don't mean wait in for a delivery...I mean the card idea!! LOL ;-)

I used..

12 little kitschy mini hangers
Coloured brads (or split pins)
Funky scrapbook papers..the glitzier the better!
Any cotton fabric...I used some vintage cottons which I'd bought on Etsy and I just happened to have at hand.

Cards...These have lovely wavy edges and I found them at David and Charles, which is a publisher based in Newton Abbot. They have a shop selling not only books but various arts/ craft items.

Plus...ribbons and any little embellishments that you have in stock.

I just made do with whatever I could lay my hands on!

And that's it!
Have a happy Thursday!

Oh you make me feel lazy!! These cards are super - I can feel a card making session coming on .... and tags, after seeing your gorgeous tags .... so much to do, so little time (I think it was Willie Wonka said that!!)

You are a fantastic dressmaker Sal!

It seems to me, Sal, that you only have to see an item which you find attractive and then in the blink of an eye you have made twenty things using that idea. You are one clever person with your craft work - I am green with envy!
