Pinterest challenge by the Pin chicks


Its time for us Pin chicks to show our pinterest items we chose to try.

These four cards were made using the same embossing folder, and I think it shows how versatile the folder can be.   There are a lot of designs of this folder on Pinterest for many different occasions.
I have made two for christmas and two for birthdays.

I used a range of flowers, ribbons and dies with feathers and peel offs dots to enhance the cards,  with peel offs words

 This is my next pin for this month, which I started on holiday,  yes this is the total sum of my tatting in Tenerife.

And this is what it is a Bookmark,  I used Lizbeth thread no 20 in Grape Pizzaz.
The tail is a spiral chain and the flower is the middle ring with the same count around as the bookmark which put together made a flower

This is my final part of the Pin,  it was going to be a pair of earrings, well the red Lizbeth thread is my try of the pattern, only the bead in the middle is too big.  So I started again with the blue Lizbeth thread Niagara Falls in no 20,  white beads and turquoise beads on the outside,  The large bead is still slightly too big but smaller than the red one.  Unfortunately I have only made one,   but I will make another one which I will blog at a later date.
I have put a picture of the pattern as it is on Pinterest.

Yes I seem to have done a lot this time but it was over two months.
I have no idea what the other ladies have done,   if anything but I will give you the links to their blogs for you to pop over and have a look.
