I know it's been simply ages since I last was here properly (& not auto posting). I've just been busy & the days simply fly by. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about this but hey I will figure it out. Emsy is on school holidays for the next three weeks so no rushing around for school runs which cuts into a lot of my days. Lils will probably be screaming blue murder by the end of tomorrow & wanting Emsy to go back to school. I tell you it'd be easier to wrangle snakes! ;-)
Let's see what's happened since I was here. I won some classes at my LSS Daisychain so I'm doing card classes which has helped me get back into cardmaking. I learnt how to make stepper cards the other night & now I think I'm addicted. Just love them, I even splurged today & brought some Kaisercraft pp with Aliens, rockets, stars & spaceships on them. as well as a 61/2 pattern paper pad called "Blast Off!" All those fun & vibrant colours look wonderful & really appeal to me at the moment. I'm still using up my old stuff & in a few weeks I will be trying my hand at selling my cards at a local market on the Sunshine Coast. Hopefully I will sell enough to make it worthwhile.
Now for the fun here are a few of the cards that I have made over the last day or so
This flaminco card is made up with all sorts of bits & bobs from my stash. I really love how it all came together.
I was asked to make a baby boy card for a friend of mine & only had an afternoon to make it. As you can see I kept it simple, but it still looks amazing (well I think so).
I discovered this monkey that I had cut out & coloured in my stash so it was a simple case of finding some pp that went with it & then I had a brain wave (didn't hurt to much lol) & used up some odd Kaisercraft gems to make a pile of jewels for the monkey to guard. I think some little boy would love getting this card. I also used my copics to colour in the ribbon to match.
Thanks for stopping by & happy crafting everyone xoxoxoxo
