Fuzzy Felt

Do you remember fuzzy felt? That strange velcro like board with loads of coloured blobs to make little stories from. Well you can still get it, all be it with disney characters and any other kiddie brand deemed financially rewarding enough, but its still there! Apparently, Nic says you can still get the shapes too if you look hard enough, they were the king of fuzzy felts!

Gillian set a brilliant Daring Cardmakers Dare this week, to use felt! And heres my contributions. Im not particularly happy with the first one with the sewing, I just think it needs something a bit more, but I dont know what... maybe it needs less!
This one uses a Dovecraft Paper from Craftspirations, how gorgeous are these papes, I love them and they're a bargain too at 3 quid for a 6 inch square pack. Felt flowers and a bloom all attached with Papermania brads. Super simple!
Ive had a lovely afternoon eatting cookies, drinking tea and talking craft and weddings with Nic and Lynne this afternoon. A welcome change after a morning spent learning how to do tax returns, you know they say it doesn't have to be taxing... they lie! Thanks for a fab day girls.

I love both of these Rhi but especially the stitched one - the colour combo is great and the off-centre stacking is just perfect. I don't think it needs another thing!

J is in the huff, as S ate the cookie you gave him. I did tell him there were another two bags full, but he wanted yours ... hehehe.

Rhi,

Love the felt cards - sadly I have no felt here so cannot play - will report back in next week though

Hope the Wedding plans are coming along well. I am amazed that you are growing your own flowers - how fab is that!

Take care

Fab cards as ever Rhi! Funnily enough I bought some Dovecraft paper on Saturday, but in browns, and its gorgeous.

Thank you (and Lynne) for a fab afternoon-we need to do it more often xx

I love the first card Rhi......it's perfect as it is and I love the colours.
Second card is fab too.
This challenge has taken felt to a whole new level hasn't it?
