I've had a lovely evening this evening- escaped off to my craft room (well,it's actually middle son's room but he's at Uni and I can't leave it empty can I?!!)
I used one of a new set of swirl stamps I've just bought and some 'Hollywood' decoupage- ...I made a birthday ATC for a friend too,and a card for a friend who is a bit of a Rock fan and has his milestone birthday this week- good excuse to get the DVWV Rockstar papers out !
I made a card for Mum's birthday as they are coming over to dinner today and a 'thank you' card for my friend who bought me a gorgeous fairy jewellry stand - I made this one the same as the other black and white lady I posted yesterday but smaller and also made a 'Tilda' card as I haven't made as many with her as I'd like. Gotta run off now and start dinner or there won't be any birthday roast !
I had a great time at Scrap and Chat with Carley Wednesday evening, we learned a folding technique that can be used to make a basic little square to be used on its own or made into a 2,3,4 or anything you like paged booklet or a box or you could pierce holes in and put some rings through - the list is endless!
I couldn't find any rings - though I'm sure I've got some somewhere and I haven't quite finished emellishing mine yet so will post a pic when it's done.
I also made a card for a very good friend of mine who celebrated her 'special' birthday on Friday using a black and white ladies kit from QVC- so can post it now she would have received it! I've just had some of the new Tim Holtz stamps delivered so am itching to have a play.
I've taken part in the annual Easter ATC swap over on the Craft Swap Forum, something I've done for the last two years.I thought I'd just use two Bunny stamps this year and make them almost all the same. I made 19 and sent them all off to a lady who is collating them all and sending them back - so am looking forward to getting my swaps back !...
I had a great evening out the other night with an old schoolfriend who I don't see that often and she presented me with a gorgeous arrangement of flowers that was actually a hand tie in a hat box,and had the most gorgeous dusky pink coloured roses in,she actually is really into crafts and making beautiful cakes and arranging weddings and made it herself- we had a lovely evening catching up.
