Now that our holiday is almost a distant memory I thought that I should face my craft room and try to tidy up a bit. As I was preparing like mad for the recorded shows that I did for Create and Craft at the end of last month and then went on holiday a couple of days later...my crafting space is rather a nightmare to behold!
I thought approaching it in an orderly way would be best so I set about emptying my pull-along tote which had all the samples and card demos still inside. Immediately I found a card that I'd prepared that didn't get included in the show for that CD. (I talked too much and ran out of time!!) So I thought I would share it here with you as I haven't had time to do any crafting recently and this blog has been seriously lacking on the card side!
This is my attempt at a more 'boyish' sort of card. It was made using papers and extras from my Funky Seasons CD,along with a bit of doodling with my trustly Sakura pen! I always seem to find papers I had forgotten about each time I look at this CD.
July is a big month for me, as I mentioned in my last post this blog was two years old last week and Funky Hand as a business is two years old this month as well. I can't believe that two years have gone by so quickly, but at the same time it seems like just yesterday when I launched my website and sat waiting excitedly for my first sale.
Because it's a pretty special time, I am planning on having a bit of a celebration here towards the end of the month with a big Blog candy prize. I'm still in the planning stage so I once I've fine tuned everything I'll be back with more details.
I'm also working on a couple of new downloads that I hope to be able to launch in the next couple of weeks. I'm sorry but they are Christmas themed! I know it's only July but so many crafters now get organised early for their Christmas cards that I had to buckle under the pressure and get designing. I have to admit to leaving my Christmas crafting to the very last minute most years but maybe having new designs to use will inspire me to get crafting earlier.. I can hope!!
Firstly though I need to get back to sorting out my craft room..once I found 'the card that got away' it hasn't been touched much more. I've got three Birthday cards to make and at this moment I can't even see my desk! Maybe a nice cup of tea before I get back to it is in order, anything to put off facing the tidying again! Speak again soon.
