Morning bloggers....

Please excuse this short post and possibly the card!  I had the card 'half finished' but, yesterday we were at a funeral of a close neighbour who died very suddenly, that was a terrible shock and what a time to have chronic back pain too.  I have a very high pain threshold but this has made me shout out with the pain, not in church I must add! 

So back to the card, it's another way to create faux leather using masking tape and I had glued the cogs in place and was waiting for inspiration on how to finish the card, so I added the chain clasp and hubby die cut the letter for me, five times, glued it together and I added it to the card.  You still may see this some other time with a more finished detail

So that's it from me today, hopefully with a not so pained back tomorrow!

  1. I love it June and the little metal embellishment makes it too, xxx

  2. Hi June,
    oh I am so sorry to hear you had that pain I do hope you are feeling mre comfortble now.
    Sounds like we have lots in common as I too was at a funeral of a neigbour the other week but this one was expected as he had been quite ill for a while.

    I love this card and the use of the metal chain is brilliant idea.
    I remember Sue Wilson using this technique years ago so thank you for reminding me of it with this very super design.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. Brilliant card June. Did try this technique a while ago but wasn’t very successful. Must try harder next time. Hope the backache is easing.take care

  4. I have done faux leather this way and loved it at the time but your recent other faux leather by far exceeds the masking tape one.
    Your card design is brill and reminds me that when a cheap watch of mine broke i took it to bits and have the face and cogs saved. This would be an excellent way to use them up.
    You never fail to inspire June
    Good wishes for resolving your back pain QUICKLY, as u know i too am a sufferer so certainly sympathise with u xxx

  5. This is a great blog that explains the importance of how to measure a smart watch on the wrist. If you really want to learn how should a watch fit & other information.

  6. Everything about the jacket seemed fine. Quality leather, fit, color etc.The style is classic, yet modern, timeless, casual and very cool. High quality and very well crafted/constructed. Designer jackets
