FTTC211, CQC180 Life is a Journey and a quick tutorial....

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you all had a great start into this new week??? Heads up...this is a longer post, because I've added a quick *Curling* tutorial at the end :) !!!

My card today is for this weeks Color Q ~ CQC180.....and this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC 211 ~ adding *Green* to your project..



Here are this weeks colors....and please don't forget to stop by the Color Q Blog for all the details!!!


Over the last few weeks a couple people have asked me how do I curl the Karen Foster Scrapping Floss and I finally had a minute to create this quick tutorial :) !!!







The trick to make these curls is to keep the floss really tight!!! I use a *Piercing Tool* to wrap the floss around, which has usually a longer needle top and it's my favorite to use with this technique!!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by......I'll be back tomorrow with the kick off to the brand new Flourishes March Release......you can win the entire March Release by simply playing along in last weeks March Pre-Release Challenge and you can also win a March Stamp Set of your choice by stopping by THIS post :) !!!

See you then,
                                                               Hugs, ~Silke~
