So, with what I thought - cos I haven't crafted since I finished the albums off as my shoulder has been sore. I did clear out my daughter's bedroom and the kitchen and the dining room but that's not crafting so doesn't come under the title of FUN.
This photo is a picture (ok, it's not a good picture) of one of the cards I made for my daughter's birthday recently. I used an idea from the crafters companion dvd and adapted it to suit Gemma by using a fairy from Lily of the Valley - they are gorgeous.
This one is a thank you card. Can't remember the make of the stamp (sorry) but it came from a set and I coloured it in with my prismas and blended it with sansador.
Do I need to tell you that this is a magnolia stamp and I LOVE IT - I thought this was a stunning stamp for a new baby card and made at least half a dozen different designs based on this one.
And yes, another magnolia stamp and a than you card again coloured with my prismas. Just love these stamps and these cards.
Having been out this morning with my daughter who is off school today, we went round the craft shops and bought her stamps and inks of her own which she has gone off to play with (might keep her quiet!!). Mind you, it cost me a fortune. Also bought some papers to cover the fronts and backs of the autograph books the kids want for the holiday so will be off to make those soon ..... wonder if my 16 year old will want one?
Bought a few things for our upcoming holiday to Florida. Mind you when I was checking the details yesterday I did notice that the date we thought we were flying on wasn't the date on the tickets, car hire and villa!!!! Whoops, who's been working to the wrong date, admitedly only a day late but that could have caused a small problem, we'd have missed the flight. Unfortunately my husband is working away that week and the day we had planned to spend packing etc will now be spent flying so I will have to pack etc on my own - which is what I usually do but with my shoulder being bad it would have nice to have had some help!!!!
