I have been making cards for a few years now and find it so relaxing and also very addictive! As I sell the cards at work it is hard to remember all the ones I have made, so this blog is to help me remember and also to share my work with fellow crafters.
Thought I had better get cracking with my Christmas cards! Particularly thought it was time to have a go with my new Dreamweaver snowflake stencil. Have had lots of fun getting messy with embossing paste, glitter and mica powders :-) I'm rather pleased with the look of this card and it was really quick and easy to make, just what is needed for Christmas cards!
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
I've been sponsoring children through Plan International (www.plan-uk.org) for a number of years now, mainly in Africa up to now. However, when the time came to sponsor a new child recently I decided to choose a South American country for a change. My new sponsor child, Valery, has written to me first (as to my shame I have not got round to writing yet). So, as her Birthday is coming up I decided I would make her a card to wish her Happy Birthday as well as saying hello. I hope she likes pink (surely all little girls do?!)
I am going to enter Valery's card into the following challenges:
Wow, doesn't time fly when you are having fun! Can't believe I haven't posted for 3 months! Haven't really been doing that much crafting either unfortunately :-( Life is just too busy at the moment! I did manage to make the card you can see on my desk recently though. I've been playing with alcohol inks after a crafting friend recommended them. I'm rather pleased with how this card has turned out :-) My jeans weren't too pleased though when I squirted purple alcohol ink all over them, oops! Still, it has given them a new look, ha ha!
The other thing on my desk today is some digi stamps from a magazine. I was looking for something suitable for hubby - big Birthday coming up in a few weeks along with our Wedding Anniversary, so I need to get cracking! I rather like these digis as quite a few designs suitable for the men in our lives :-)
So, if you fancy a nosey round some other desks, visit Julia at the Stamping Ground to see what WOYWW is all about.…
