Welcome to my new followers - Mary, Sandee and Maisie!
Another week has flown by and we're back to WOYWW with Julia again. Check out the WOYWW link on the left hand side of her blog to find out why we're all snooping around the web!
So what is on my little worktrays this week? Well, some coloured images I'd just completed and you can see a peak of the image I'm working on for a special card for a special person. I also had my nesties to hand and some embossing I did for another card I'm hoping to make.
In this photo you can actually see......some sunshine....yes, it made an unannounced appearance, but has now gone again back to grey skies and rain expected. Never mind, it's a good job I love the rain. If you look carefully you'll see some photo corners I tried to make freehand.
At the moment I've got so many ideas running around in the tumbleweed that is otherwise known as my tiny wee brain cell. Yes, there is only one, and yes, it does get lonely sometimes! LOL!
Hope you all enjoy WOYWW whatever you are doing! :-)))
Here's some of the finished Easter cards I started on WOYWW last week. It's been fun making all the bright and spring like cards, nice and colourful.
Hope you like them, of course, now I've finished making them I've had another idea but it will have to wait for now as my head is spinning a bit with ideas at the moment. My hands are a bit better, it comes and goes, so am hoping to add to the charity box collection real soon.
Rudolph Day again. I just love these little penguins as they are so cute! I'm not sure what stamp they are as they were donated for the charity cardmaking. I was given some lovely Christmas Candi (Thanks Gill!) and they are wonderful colours! They are also flatter than other Candi I've had. Ideal for posting!
I also got out my little die cut machine and did some of the circular sentiments so I can just add them to cards as I make them - apart from one I did which had "Across the Miles" and I hadn't realised! Don't worry, they've all been checked and remedied!
Time flies, who believes we're already heading towards the end of February!?!?! OMG!!! I have a little list of cards to make. One is secret and I can't show anything on here until it's done and delivered, the rest are in the process of being completed - even if some are still in my head and not a scrap (no pun intended!!) has been cut or stamped yet. LOL!
So as you can tell, for your WOYWW delectation Easter has arrived on my little trays on my bed!!! I've got another plan for a special card that is completely outside of my comfort zone i.e.e no cute animals or kitties. I know, I know....who would believe I would be making one of those!
Thanks go to Julia for the wonderful cards you sent through, don't worry, they can all be used to raise funds for the charities. They appreciate everything we can make/take to them for their fundraising events.
My hands have been playing up a lot lately, so it's taking me a lot longer to get around to completing many cards. Never give up is my motto!!!!
Last WOYWW you saw the beginnings of this card - now I can show you it in it's complete form!!! I used little gems for the eyes on the kitties here. Of course I had to have a big red heart as well as the ribbon hearts too.
The ribbon only cost me 99p for the whole roll, and I've used it on so many cards, perhaps I should have a look next time I'm in the craft shop to see if they have any left!
Yep, it's Wednesday, so it must be.....fanfare of trumpets.....WOYWW! It always amazes me how quickly the Wednesday comes around each week!
So what's on my little work trays. Well as you can see by the gorgeous red and white diecuts and the dies it's ... yes.... Valentines Day! So what does that mean? Yes cards!
I've had a rootle around my craft stash and found all things heart related and now the ideas are springing up in my little old cobweb and tumbleweed filled head. Whilst looking I've found a few other bits and pieces which I need for another card so that's handy!
For those of you who saw my challenge last week, to make an A4 sized card for a Baby Shower, here is the result. I had made up a few templates for my friend and asked her which she preferred, and she chose the onesie based card.
It was then a case of putting on the background papers she liked and I added the little nesties with the baby words on, surrounded by diamonds - well it is for a boy so couldn't have too much. I added some ribbon and backed it on to mirror card and it was all done.
I also added some baby peel offs to the insert to brighten up the huge double A4 size cream paper as it looked so empty without a verse on it. The space was needed for about 60 signatures so it had to be clear.
Anyway, I hope you like it and I'd love to hear your comments about it. Off to have my one coffee a day now and then dream up some more layouts as I've got quite a few cards to make with imminent deadlines!
Oh yes, is anyone else getting these stupid adverts at the top of the blogger page or is it just me?!?!?!
I totally forgot it was WOYWW today, chemobrain strikes again! On my little worktrays on my bed today we have......my cuttlebug (you can tell it has been used a teeny tiny bit huh!) and some die cuts for a card I've been asked to make. I got these lovely dies from my good friend Gill - thanks Gill - ideal for so many cards I have jiggling around in my head amongst the cobwebs and the tumbleweek!!!
This card is for a Baby Shower and it was to be A4 in size. I don't make many A4 cards, and of course all the embellies are made for smaller cards, so my cobwebs and tumbleweed got a right shaking up I can tell you!
I drew up a few ideas and sent them to my friends daughter and she chose the colour scheme she liked and the rest is up to me. Of course, I'll show you the finished product on my blog soon!
One last thing - does anyone have any House Mouse stamps that have toothbrushes or floss on them??? If you do could you please leave me a comment or email me? Many many thanking yous!
I've been a crafter all my life, having put my hands to many different aspects of crafting, now it is time to share my cardmaking skills with you. I make cards for cancer charities and local hospices, it has affected many people I know, myself included, so I know how much it helps cancer patients. I hope you like my cards and please leave comments for me if you wish as I'd love to know what you think!
