Hello friends! It really seems like an age since I’ve been on here! I’ve had a bit of a health scare, but all sorted now, and ready and raring to go again!! We only have two weeks left at school until the Summer holidays, I really can’t wait! Six weeks of cards and crafting, decorating my craft room, spending time with my son when he comes home from uni, grabbing time when I can to spend with my daughter (I have to compete with the boyfriend!!), and starting my Christmas cards!! Yep, I said the dreaded ‘C’ word!!
I spent a lovely afternoon at Sir Stampalot today, watching a demo by the very talented Chris! I met some very talented ladies whose blogs I follow, so all in all a really good day – the wallet was a bit lighter when I came home, but I learnt some lovely techniques which I am very eager to try!! Roll on the Summer!
My card today is a birthday card for someone who is very special to me, far away in South Africa. So far away in fact, that this is the second card that I have made as the first didn’t quite make it to her thanks to the wonderful postal system, or lack of!! Jeanette has always been very complimentary about my cards, and I feel quite cross that her birthday card didn’t get to her, so I have remade it and will post it on Monday, and fingers crossed it will get to her this time! I hope she had a wonderful birthday in the meantime!
What I have used:
Papers – The Paper Loft ‘For the Record’ Heirloom and Diary
Spellbinders – Labels One, Rose Creations, Foliage, Classic Edges Two and Classic Decorative Inserts Two
