September Pinterest challenge

Hi Pinchicks!
I'm running a bit late late today sorry.
I'm here now tho and I've been playing with string.
Hubby had to pop to the diy shop so I asked him to pick up a couple of balls of string for me and he gave me one of those looks....
you know the ones that silently says 'what on earth is she up to now'?
but he did as I asked and came home with the string so I set about my project...
the original pin had leather handles on the basket but I don't think hubby would have been happy if I cut up his leather belt.
I made the two smaller baskets with the left over string.
then I went on ebay and found s string seller and bought a huge 2 kilo reef of the stuff and I have next months all ready to go. Its not a basket tho.
its huge!
please pop over to the other pinchicks and check out there projects for this month.
if anyone would like to join us just find something on pinterest and give it a go. it can be anything at all.
thanks for stopping by.

Anything Goes at Creative Inspirations and the option of a sketch.

hello, happy Wednesday!
I have to start this post by saying thank you to everyone who joining in this fortnight, we had some amazing creations. I love visiting your blogs so please keep joining us.
this fortnight is a favorite with sooooo many of you, its Anything Goes and we are expecting a huge turn out. I get exciting thinking about all you clever people I get to meet.
Some of you will know that my furbaby has had surgery so I've spent every second keeping an eye on her and making sure she doesn't touch her stitches. We did try the lampshade collar but it was way too stressful and when she fell down the stairs in it hubby decided that was enough! I'm surprised he didn't chuck it in the bin!
so with my eyes fixed on her I didn't get much chance to craft so I decided not to spend a lot of time colouring an image. we can still make nice cards without image right?
I used Memory Box Fresh Foliage die.
I used a book page for the backing. I find it so hard to tear pages from a book, it goes against everything I have been taught. I've always looked after my books.
the sentiment is from a set called Be Happy Sentiments from AmyR stamps.
this is a very simple card and I followed the sketch which is available on the blog today, although I didn't add the flowers. I'm sure you can do better than me.
please come and join us at Creative inspirations. Oh and as always we have a prize up for grabs.
I really would appreciate it if you could leave me a comment to let me know you came to visit me today. thank you xxx
happy crafting, Suzanne xx
