Little Treasures from Tracy

Here are a couple more cards made using the September Flower Kit from Creative Treasures
I made a few like this and I love the way the flower and ribbon make a really simple idea work so well., The card above uses two different ribbons from the kit, a couple of flowers and a flower centre made with card candy.
For the card below I used some ribbon from my stash as I'd run out of the right matches from the kit along with one of the raffia flowers, a black paper flower and more card candy.
The papers are both Black Market Paper Society

The main reason that I've already used so much of this kit is that it was perfect for another, bigger project I've been involved with. I'm just waiting to hear whether all the bits have reached their destinations (am I being too cryptic?) before I post all the photos on here - but I just can't resist adding a sneak peek right now, so here you go:

What do you think it could be then?
This kit is a real humdinger. Stuffed full of gorgeous blooms, lace ribbons, buttons, card candy and various other little temptations that Tracy finds to treat us to. If you've not already ordered yours click HERE to head straight to Tracy's shop.

It's my uncle's birthday tomorrow so I've been dealing with the usual "Man Card Trauma". To be honest I'm not entirely convinced with what I've come up with, but it's in the post and will have to do. Must try harder next year!
fancy pants papers, map fragment is a scanned image printed, torn and inked, hand cut curvy arrow, ribbon, brads and antique-looking car charm from stash

And finally (yes, at last!)
It's WOYWW - what's on your workdesk Wednesday - and for once mine is fairly clear because I finished a project yesterday and today I've been writing up something else for tomorrow's Bubbly Scrumptious.
So what we have on there today is the contents of a crafty package that arrived this morning and also a sheet of homemade rub-ons that I'm quite excited about!
That's it, you reached the end - Well done!
Back tomorrow with some Christmas Cards - yes, really! agghhh
Thanks for visiting

Very stylish cards with your kit Kathy and your workspace barely qualifies as such this week - no evidence of work going on there, far too tidy! Did you do the simple rub on technique or get fancy with gel hairspray and stuff?
