Wedding card

Evening all,

Finally finished a Wedding Card  today which I wanted to try as something new. It's also one of the few I've ever made with no sentiment on the front.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
That's all for now.

Monday madness

Evening Folks,

After a busy weekend with family, it's time to get back to crafting again with enthusiasm...and there it goes: my inspiration out the window again.  I had a Belated Birthday Card to make today and no idea where to start.  So it's back to an old favourite, the 'With Love Flowers' from Pink Gem Designs. I changed the wording and coloured it in with my Promarkers, getting used to them now :-)

It went in the post today for a dear Auntie of mine and I'm also entering it into the following Challenges:

That's all for now.

Tying a flat knot...

...isn't as easy as it sounds. This is my first real attempt as part of a Sympathy card for a male friend of ours.  It took me several attempts to get it to look this good and I definitely need to practice it more.  I used parts of the Black Floral Set from Digistamp Boutique, with a simple floral background and ribbons, working on the less is more idea. I really like this card; it's taught me that my cards don't always have to be so busy and intricate.

I have entered this in the following Challenges:

Morning Peeps,
Yes I know it's been a while again. Another round of illnesses has hit us all here, an emotional low and sheer frustration in that my countdown to website launch day seemed impossible.  Then last Friday we had our first chinese for ages and our first in our new house. So I opened my fortune cookie...

...and my belief in what I'm trying to achieve renewed itself. Since then I've been having a real tidy up and clear out of my craft room, sorting out some storage issues and designing like mad. I'll be selling things that I don't use/don't interest me any more, so that my room is very much focused on what I want to do. Frustrations over the website have been resolved by breaking it down into section launches - why didn't I think about that before? - the first and most important being my cards on the 1st July 2013.  Hubby very kindly sorted out my Cricut, thank goodness.  I feel so much happier :-)
