I go so long sometimes between making cards, or any sort of crafting actually, just for fun that I forget how much I enjoy just playing! I needed to make two cards this morning so I got a few mins peace whilst Ian took my banking to the bank and posted my orders for today (I know I have him well trained!!)
The first is for Ians Nephew Adam who is six today, we are off to gatecrash his party tea this afternoon and eat all his cake!!
The stamped image is one from a recent stamped image swop we did on the Funky Hand design team blog. I am ashamed to say I'm not sure who this came from, it's either Jozza or Ruth I think..once I find out I'll come back here and make my correction!! Anyway..I chalked the little dinosaur and mounted him on some black card. The backing paper is from my CD Funky Seasons which I am sorry to say I don't visit enough but this Autumn colour collection fitted perfectly with the chalks I'd used for the colouring. Having Happy Birthday on the paper made it nice and easy for the sentiment as well!!
The second card is for one of our close friends Ivor who has very unexpectedly found himself in hospital this week. It's all quite upsetting and we are going to visit him this afternoon to see for ourselves how he is. Hopefully this little card will brighten up his hospital room.
This card is also made with a stamp swap image but I know who this one is from, Enfys. I used a paper from Funky Seasons again for this one but from one of the Winter collections. I cut the scalloped circle using the largest die from my Nesties set and left it pretty plain really..except for three buttons which I received in the post today from a lovely collection I bought from Ebay earlier in the week. I used to be a brad maniac but lately I have to admit to having a bit of a button fetish!!
Well the TV show on Ideal World last Saturday evening seemed to go quite well and I wanted to thank all my lovely customers for sending me nice messages this week. We have some very exciting plans ahead for the next few months so I am looking forward to sharing the details with you when I can..
On that note I think I had better get back to work..and there was me thinking that working for myself would be easier than working for someone else..I find I am a very hard boss to work for..I always have something else for me to do!!!
