Hello There Crafters!
I know it has been a while since my last post, but boy have we been busy, shifting, moving, working, and crafting! A lot has been happening but it has now all ‘happened’ and hopefully we can now slow down a bit and get back to a ‘normal’ routine (whatever that is)!
So I have now moved into my new abode and it is ‘full’ to say the least but it is very cosy and homely, and we are very contented with all our efforts. Next week, my lovely brother, is putting some more storage cupboards in to the craft room, and that should clear the rest of the homeless stuff into a hidden mess, so we can then get down to the more serious business of crafting! 🙂
So what have I managed to fit in, in-between the lifting and shifting, well let’s see!
I decided to make a Mother’s Day card but I wanted to incorporate a gift also, as Mum loves my creations, so although I started off with a card in my head, it ended up with a gift attached! (It’s the big card in the middle!) I am thrilled with the results, so much so, I created 4 more! They too were a bit of a challenge, as it was one of those days yesterday where everything that could go wrong did…. but I soldiered on and won the war HA! So here are the trophies…
All of these were made around a box or loose chocolates. So you have the complete ideal present….Beautiful card, box of chocolates and a gift bag all in one. What more could a Mum want….who said Wine?……..hhmmm that may well be another challenge!
Being Mum’s day, pink did seem to have a big influence, in many ways.
This background stamp is so beautiful…….I purchased it from Crafty Individuals. There are so many stamps there I am like a kid in a candy shop!
I also was naughty and bought this Justrite background stamp from Once Upon a Stamp. I had my eye on it for months but I just couldn’t resist any longer and I was really glad I bought it, it is stunning! I stamped it onto white pearlised paper with Versa Ink and heat dried it, and although you can’t see it, it shimmers, really pretty.
I then found the Doily die and off I go again, sometimes it just goes together so well, and this certainly did!
Oh…I forgot to show you what was inside Mum’s card!
Here’s a close up of her card too 🙂
Well from giving you not a lot over the last few weeks, I am now boring you to tears, so I shall run off and find something else to craft, as I love to share with you all.
Have a wonderful crafty week.
