3x3 - Mid week DCM extra

Thank You for all the kind words regarding my last post. It made a sad day bearable.

This week we were given a recipe again. Make whatever you want as long as you use 3 different patterned papers, 3 buttons & 3 ribbons.
Papers are K&Co, La Boutique. Flowers are from a string of lace purchased on a market stall & the individual flowers cut free. Buttons papermania. Ribbons are a mix & I used 3 different ones.
Centre floral was from the market, spotted blue & silver lemon are sticky ribbon from papermania.
The card is actually made to say thank you to someone who altered a pair of trousers for me. My suit is getting worn & I needed more trousers for work, but being small, 4ft 11in it is a nightmare. Short length used to be 27", I am 26 1/2". Now short is 29". So tell me, go on, who decided to raise the height for short people, are we migets if we are under???

I'm with you on the height thing.I'm a wee bit short myself..
that's the best part about blogs, no-one can see how tall you are, here I was thinking you were 5'10" LOL!!!!...

I'm with you - I'm short, too! I think I am now 5'1" (and a HALF! Like Lythan we cannot forget about part inches!) And I agree with Gillian - you were 5.10" in my imagination, Paula! Really truly! Thanks for leaving a comment on my Blog. I have been unable to craft of late - no time - and then my computer died. Tragic, really. I have a little laptop but had not saved my files, pictures and e-mail addresses onto it before and it didn't have any of my favourite sites saved on it either, so I have been slowly getting things back. My PC is still in the shop. The laptop is taking up my crafting space as I do it all in front of my PC. Pathetic, aren't I?? Will see what I can do about making some cards/LOs VERY SOON!

Such a cute card Paula and I love your layout - the daisies look fab!

Brigitta said...

I just looooooove your cards Paula, you're a real artist! and trust me, being 5ft 11 isn't always easy either, although I get the impression that more and more women in Holland are rising to this hight ;-)
