I have a few birthdays coming up, so wanted to get ahead with my cards, hate leaving everything until the last minute!
I actually started my card at craft class last night using paper from a pad from SU in a soft mossy green. I didn't really know where I was going with it until I looked at it fresh again today. I decided to use one of my favourite LOV stamps, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured in using my Promarkers.
The sentiment is from a stamp in my stash, and then punched out using the oval and then scalloped punches again from SU.
Flowers as always from wildorchidcrafts and gems are Do-crafts I think.
Thought you might like to see some pictures of my new craft room.
As I have outgrown the Dining Room and didn't have a spare bedroom I have decided to convert the conservatory. Chucked out all the furniture and bought some new bits. The Expedit for Ikea was recommended by a crafty friend and I have to say its excellent. Can fit loads of stuff in and great for all your 12x12's.
I decided on a pine table instead of a desk as my PC won't be going through and I wasn't wanting loads of extra drawers either. Would have liked a bigger table but it will have to do, couldn't really fit anything larger in the car.
The three tier storage units behind are fabby. Bought then for only £10.00 each from Home Bargains and have masses and masses of stuff in them, and they fit well behind my craft table.
Left a sofa in too, thought I could sit a read my craft mags in the sun.
So manged to get all but a half dozen kits in, have left thenm in a cupboard in the Dining room for now.
Wonder how long it will stay this tidy and organised?
What a busy 6 weeks I have had its been non stop crafting, but not anything I was able to show on my blog.
I am on the DT for Crafty Catz, and have been making samples for Pamela's new CD which is to have it's first airing on Create & Craft on April 27th at 10am.It's called Got It Covered. Its a great CD, so easy to use with great images and beautiful backing papers, and much much more. If you want to see what the DT have been up to just have a wee look here, www.craftycatz.co.uk
My cards are on my blog.
I also had my SIL's 40th birthday last week and I made her a scrapbook of her children. Turned out lovely and she was so pleased with it so that just made all the effort worthwhile.
I am also in the process of making my rather large conservatory into a part craft room, as I have so outgrown the Dining room, so have lots of shelves to build and sorting out to do.
So as you see I have been busy,
Back to challenges though I have so missed them! Will see what I can come up with tomorrow, my rubber stamps and promarkers feel quite neglected
I live in Scotland with my husband, two teenage children, my adorable Cocker Spaniel and two young tabby cats.
I love card making, scrapbooking and ATC's, and enjoy taking part in lots of swaps on my favourite craft forums.
In creating this blog I hope to take part in lots of challenges, and be inspired in my cardmaking.
