My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

31 January 2010

Cute Puppy!

After a busy weekend, I managed to get an hour in late this afternoon to do some crafting and decided to use one of my free stamps I received with a recent magazine, together with some co-ordinated papers, card and ribbon from my stock. I came up with a card that can be used for any occasion.

Robot Friends

Today I a had a chance to have a couple of hours crafting, so decided to use one of my new Kanban kits that I bought this month called Robot Friends - these cards are ideal for kids and are lovely and simple to create. Kanban's ranges are just absolutely gorgeous and great quality too.

Here's some examples that I made - these will be appearing on my website very soon!

From one build to another ......

Mark finished the conservatory build in October 2009 and did a such a fantastic job he's now going to start on converting the back of the garage into my long awaited craft room!

I think my stash of crafting goodies has finally pushed him over the edge as its taking over too many rooms in the house and when you are working on projects its too much of a hassle to put it all away in a cupboard again, so it just stays wherever I leave it in an organised mess!

I can't wait to have a proper room to work in with everything to hand ..... I have sooooo much stuff, it will be brilliant. So I will keep you up-to-date on progress and of course the finished room. We are off out tomorrow to get the French doors!

Wedding Invites

Before Christmas I was asked by a friend if I would like to make her wedding invites ..... I jumped at the chance as had not had the opportunity to do invites before. After consultation and checking colour schemes and designs, I came up with a simple ivory and silver design which she loved. The paper is embossed and has butterflies on this too, organza ribbon and vellum butterflies with silver craft wire.

I finished these last night and she was absolutely delighted with them .... weird thing is I will be receiving one back as she's inviting me to the wedding!

Well here we go ......

So many people I know have blogs, so I've decided to have a go too! Although very daunting, it will give you an insight into my life, my joy of crafts and whatever else life throws at me. So I hope that you enjoy my posts ..... I hope to be able to post on a regular basis and keep you up to date on my website too!
