Rounded Bottom

Hello my crafty pals. Thank you for visiting and for the lovely comments you left. I love reading them and knowing I have company as I meander along in this fun world. Welcome to my new pals. I have now found where your comment boxes wander off to, lol.
I know I’m not supposed to be here, I should be on my way to shopping at the Taunton show but we have had so much snow this morning. To say I am disappointed is an understatement.  
I made this but what is it and what am I going to do with it – lol. This is what comes of playing, I wanted to play with curving the card around at the bottom and I also wanted to play with my spellbinder circle die that I bought weeks ago. I also put an embossing folder through my grand calibur for the first time. So feel free to have a giggle at my thing with the rounded bottom. Take care all especially if travelling.
This shows my lining paper in the wrong place so I half lined the box and my thing has a nice back.

PS: I am having a bit of a background crisis at the moment – lol. My translate dropdown has disappeared although it looks fine in design mode so I think Windows 8 has pinched it.

  3. Lovely Flora.... doesn't have to have a prupose in mind when you make something - just has to 'BE' ... hope the snow clears for you soon. x

  4. Hi Flora, just play around something will come to mind. Like what you have achieved so far, work in progress. Up here in Bonnie Scotland we have sunshine but cold and frosty, you have beaten us to he snow.LOL

    Take care, no slipping and falling over.

  5. Hi Flora,
    thought for a min I was on the wrong blog. I like this colour blog, very pretty. I started off with this one, and then I bought mine and panicked for nearly 2 weeks about putting it up. Needn't have worried though it was soooo easy to do. oops gone off on a tangent again.
    Your project is very beautiful and amazing.
    Sorry to hear the bad weather stopped your craft shopping journey.
    Have a wonderful crafty day instead.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  6. Hi Flora, it is snowing in North Oxfordshire too. Far too early for the white stuff! I think teh only thhing to do is play and practice - something will come to mind! Keep warm. Our wood burner is working very hard!! Lovely an dtoasty. I'll just have to stay in the kitchen. Love from Christine xx
