Poppy Card

The weather today has been awful - wet and wintery.  The first wet day since lock down started so can't really complain. 

Today's card is an 7" x 7" card made from a Hunkydory kit - ( there will be other cards from this kit coming soon!) 

Thanks for reading and stay safe

Another Recycled Card

Today's card is one that originally started off as an easel card. It was made at a Create & Craft workshop in Doncaster with Stephanie Weightman & Nancy Watt. I thought it was too bulky as an easel card so I removed the toppers and have made it into a normal card. 

Thanks for reading & stay safe.

Another Couple of Recycled cards

Today I have 2 cards to show you. These were 2 that I made a few years ago and for some reason didn't keep on their original card blanks so I have now re matted them on new card blanks and have 2 new cards. 

Thanks for reading & stay safe

Dachshund Card

Hope this post finds you all well. I have had a day off today from work. Been a very beautiful day weather wise today so after our walk this morning we had lunch in the garden and then I sat out there reading for an hour. It got quite warm so I came in and did a bit of card making. I am still going through the box of old toppers etc.

Today I made this one. The topper is on kraft card and the image is a black outline sticker. I found some backing paper and another piece of kraft card. The size of the card is 5" x 5"

Thank you for reading and stay safe.


Long Time No Post

WOW long time no post and boy what a lot has happened since then - mainly COVID19. Hope you are all well and are staying safe and following the lockdown rules. I am going to work as I work at our local Tesco on the checkout. I am missing my grandsons alot but I am lucky in that they don't live very far away and I get to see them when my son and daughter in law take them on their daily exercise past our house although o is killing me that I can't give them a hug. My other daughter in law is expecting a baby in June and I am hoping above hope that this lockdown is over by the time the baby is born but I am not confident. 

Right on my days off I have been up in my craft room trying to get ahead of myself with all the birthdays/anniversaries etc. I am getting there but it is slow going. I can't always concentrate and my mojo keeps going away.  When I was looking for something I did come across a couple of boxes that card toppers etc from ages ago that I was going to make into new cards. I thought this would be good as I didn't have to think too much and I would have some quick cards to give out.

Here are the first lot that I made. 

This was a frame with hand made paper flowers that was made at a workshop at Doncaster with Mel Heaton (I think!) a few years back. Just added to a card blank and stamped image.

Again the next two cards were made from a single card that was done at a workshop with Creative expressions. The first card was the insert and I have just added the greeting, gems and the backing.

This was the front of the card and I just added the greeting embellishment.

The next three cards were just taken off cards and then re stuck onto card blanks.
