Hello there lovely blog friends, I would like to say a special hello to my new blog follower Susan.  It is great having you following my blog wafflings.  

Thank you all so much for the lovely comments made about my last post - the inspiration coming from when I was in the dentist's chair - yuk!    My blog friend Susan F (Craftin' Suzie) made me giggle when said she spent her time staring at the clock, willing it to go round so that she could escape.   Unfortunately my dentist doesn't have one in the surgery, so my alternative is to either look up his nose (I can just about see that far without my glasses on) or close my eyes tightly ..... you can see what I do ..... I shut my eyes and think of cards of course!!!

I was going to do some tidying up today and then I was going to sort out my new dies but, as usual, I was distracted and decided to do a Twinchie instead.  I covered my 2" piece of card (such a job and a half - lol) with EcoGreen paint then painted some cogs and shapes from EcoGreen.  I stamped the base with a floral stamp then stamped across the cogs/shapes with a music score stamp.  I went around all the edges with a Zig silver pen.

When these were all dry, I stuck them onto the base with Cosmic Shimmer Clear glue and added a few 'pearls' made from Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA.  I found a lovely brad in my stash and stuck it through a flower in the opposite corner.

    You left a comment to say you were pleased that your friend Jenny had won the prize on my blog, sorry to bother you but could you prompt her to email me her address as I don't want her to miss out on her prize, I have left her a comment but not sure if she's seen it as I've not heard from her. Thanks ever so much for your comment on my card too. Hugs Teresa xx
