As promised here is a card I made at Sarahs - I never feel guilty about my amount of stash after I have visited her!! Every available cupboard is hiding delicious secrets - this is a card from a beautiful die she has. Sarah also has a great online shop with lots of goodies [here].
This card is for my lovely sister-in -law
I can enter it in the following challenhe crafts4eternity- very vintage
I have been thinking about this a lot lately - how your life can take a different path and so you have different experiences. The only reason I got into card making was because I was having chemotherapy and just needed something to do on my better days....if I had not been ill - I doubt I would have made a single card ever ..and my life would have been so less blessed because of that. I have met some wonderful friends through the breast cancer group but I have also made wonderful friendships with fellow crafters.
I am lucky to have met 2 great craft teachers who I now count as friends. On a Friday I go to Lyndseys classes and on Saturday I go to Sarahs for crafting. I always look forward to finishing work on a Friday. Love learning new techniques and dribbling over paper and promarkers together.
Lyndsey always sets homework on what we have learnt - this week it was a sketch and using paper piercing = see above card.
I am going to put my version in the following challenges allsortschallenge - things with wings alphabetchallenge- anything with wings .addictedtostamps = bingo [paper piece/free/heart]
Later in the week I shall put on a card I made with Sarah
I know its been ages since I have been on here - just got caught up in the real world. Had an amazing time at the Craft Retreat in Wales with some lovely crafty friends I made on Docrafts - there were 12 of us in a Youth Hostel in Wales. Fab time especially on the Sunday when we did not get out of our pyjamas!!!
Robert has finally moved out so I have at last my own room - its taken me 54 years to get one- John mentioned something about a golf trophy room - soon put a stop to that!!
Can't believe how much stuff I have acquired - darn't put a photo on here of my new craft room til I get sorted!!!
Here is a card I have made for my best friends brothers birthday. I can enter it in the following challenges:- mytimetocraftchallenge - mens cards qkrstampede. - anything goes cardsgalorechallenges - one for the men totallygorjuss - for the men
SO SAD THAT I HAVE TO CHANGE THIS. My darling husband John who put up with all my craftiness and encouraged me to spend on goodies has died way too soon.[June 2013] I am bereft without him. I started making cards when I was having treatment for breast cancer to while away the hours. I always donate a proportion of any card I sell to my charity of the moment. I have 3 wonderful sons and am blessed with wonderful friends.
