Technical Thinking of You

Welcome back guys,

Today I have a card to share with you that has been created for two of my challenges - the first is my Crafting Techniques group on facebook, where this months technique is Tea-Bag folding, and the second challenge is our new one over at Aud Sentiments. Our challenge this time is sympathy/Thinking of you and we have a gift voucher for one lucky winner :).

I used eight square tea-bag folding patterns and the instructions for making this thick star can be found here:  http://www.handcraftedgreetings.com/layeredstar.php

The difficult part is getting all the pieces to sit together nicely lol. I didn't want to detract from the star too much, so used a strip of pearls just underneath and then a peel-off sentiment. Annoyingly I have realised now that the pearls are not quite central - or maybe it is the way I took the photo because I am sure they look central on the actual card!! Grr.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
not just cards #47 Anything Goes
CASology #263 Bud


I would also like to  share an update on my fish tank - at 154.5 hours!




We have a poorly female mallard up on our fishing lake at the top of our housing estate. I had to try and locate her this morning so I could ring the swan rescue back, but the ducks are not playing nicely and I now have to head out to work. Have left a message on the local group, so hopefully somebody will locate her and then call the swan rescue!!

Anyway - time for me to run,
