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.
Quick! Last minute chance to win candy at Crafters Companion
Crafters Companion are giving away their new S.W.A.L.K collection as yummy blog candy over at their blog. Be quick though, it ends at midnight tonight!
Not much going on this week really apart from some untidiness around the sofa area, I really need to have a tidy up! There are quite a few sequins everwhere (although you probably can't see them!) as I emptied out some that I got in my car boot sale haul last week. I didn't actually use any, just emptied them out all over! I've had to pull the blinds down on the windows as my desk was getting too hot, don't worry though I always open them to craft so I can see the garden.
I still seem to be struggling to find time to do much crafting at the mo. Managed to finish the 30th Birthday card that was in progress last week (see below). I'm having Monday and Tuesday off work next week to have a bit of a rest so I have to get some crafting done then. It's my Dad's 70th birthday in a couple of weeks so I need to sort out a special card for that and also yet another card for someone at work (leavers card this time)
Wednesday again, how quickly it comes round! This week I have been mainly colouring as I have been stocking up on Promarkers. (Cowling and Wilcox are selling the packs of 5 half price till 22nd August, I've just ordered another 3 packs on top of the 2 they have already sent me!) I really need to have a lesson on using them though as I was never an artist and am tending to just colour in more or less solid blocks, so could do with a lesson on light and shading!
Yes, that is also a Christmas card you can see on my desk! There were so many very organised bloggers I had seen that I was shamed into making a start! There were quite a few Christmassy bits in the haul of stash I got from the car boot sale the other week, so I emptied them all out and had a play. I'll show you the snowman card again when it is finished! The only slight problem is I can't find where I have hidden all my Christmas stamps from last year, any ideas?! There was a Professor of Findology on BBC bre…
Wednedsday again and I haven't posted since last Wednesday, oh dear I'm slipping! Despite having two days off work Monday and Tuesday I still don't seem to have done all that much crafting. I have been concentrating mainly though on a mini book for my Dad for his 70th and have completed six pages of that so I suppose that counts as at least six cards! It's not quite finished yet but I promise to share it when it is. It's the first scrapbook type thing that I've ever made, so not as professional looking as some I have seen, but hopefully he will like it.
My craft space is getting messier by the day, it really needs a tidy up I think!
I've taken a picture of the conservatory from the outside as a few people last week weren't familiar with the English love of these constructions! Ours is not a posh UPVC one though which the majoirity are, it is basically a wooden shack with windows, ha ha! For those of you who were concerned about me overheating last w…
