Through the Arched Window

Hello dear blogging friends, I hope you are having a great weekend.  I've had a lovely crafting time starting with a lovely day at my pal Linda's with other crafting pals yesterday.  We each stitched a 'thread catcher'  (there's pix of mine further down the page) had a good old chat and a delish lunch cooked by Linda. 

Today I've been working on my DT card for the next Cute Card Thursday Challenge, creating an ATC and a piece of artwork using some fabulously zingy colours - which I will share later.

Over on the Craft Mad and Loving Group on Craftbubble it is my turn to set the group a challenge for the month of February.  I've indulged myself a tad with the theme as I do so love the White on White (WoW) style.  The challenge I've set is to create a project using WoW plus one other colour, there's an added extra if they choose to include it of 'fibres' - could be fabric, twine, ribbon or anything of that sort.

I love red and white as a combo, I think the red really 'pops' against the white and is very 'clean' looking.  For my design I used a few of the new items I bought at Craft4Crafters at Wespoint recently.  The fabulous trellis arch is by Tonic Studios and I used flower and spray dies by Marianne's to create the embellishments.  The red and white spot paper behind the trellis was a magazine freebie, the red and white twine is from my stash and the sweet little ' love' sentiment is from a set of stamps by Stampin'Up! .

Here's a close up shot of the details

I'm really looking forward to seeing what other members of the group create for my challenge.

Now, on to my thread catcher - it is collapsible and very handy to pop into your bag when crafting away from home.  Althought it is a thread catcher, it works very well for collecting the waste bits and pieces when doing any kind of crafting - although putting in things with wet glue or ink on them could spoil it as it is made of fabric.

Love your WOW style Wynneth, it really does make the red pop. It's a lovely clean fresh look and I could admire it for ages.
Your friend Linda sounds lovely, a delich meal included -what a pal.
The thread catcher is very cool, love how it folds smaller -so convenient and the fabric is very funky. These will go down very well ;)
