Happy Mother’s Day

Hope you have had a wonderful day with family this Mother’s Day

I completed a few cards I made yesterday

Two using distress oxide blending for the backgrounds 

And another nine using a sheetload template from Crafty Al on YouTube 

Bye for now

Goodness - where have I been?

 It is incredible the time that has passed since my last post - so much has happened in my life and in the world.  I hope everyone that reads this is well and coping as well as you can with the difficult circumstances that we are dealing with 

I am still card making but not doing much else in the way of crafting, my sewing machine has been sitting idle for a number of months 😢

I have been making cards for my great nieces as a special delivery in their letterbox - addressed to them with a stamp and everything, they get so excited to get them 

Some that I have made recently

Sympathy cards - 2

Two more sympathy cards I made for my friend.  This time I let all the cutting dies do the work.

I love this feather die but the end result is never quite what I envisage ?

Hope my friend likes the cards I have made for you.  I have a busy week socially, so I don’t think I will get much more crafting done.  But I can hope

Enjoy your day

Sympathy Cards

A friend asked me to make some sympathy cards for her.  Two I finished today using Kaisercraft Cottage Rose papers

I hope I get a couple more finished tomorrow

Are you crafting this weekend

Two different cards

I finished  two cards this morning, entirely different styles.  We had a new baby in our extended family this week, and I used my last  baby boy card, so had to make another for my stash.

The next card is for my BIL birthday.  I used a Darkroon Door stamp, coloured with Distress Oxide inks.  Papers are from Kaisercraft Factory 42 collection 

I haven't made any cards for awhile, so was pleased to get started again.

Hope you are having a great crafting weekend

Kaisercraft Anthropology Cards

Well a week ago I decided to try Alicia McNamara from Papercraft Secrets instructions for 10 Kaisercraft Anthropology cards.  I really did have very good intentions, but I got sidetracked.  I didn’t have all the materials so was making do with what I had. Here are 5 finished - maybe 1 similar to the samples 🤔

I now need to make a baby boy card, welcoming a new addition to my extended family. Such joy!

Till then, have a great crafting day

Lazy times

Since returning from holidays, I have not had time for any crafting.  I got my card and papers out on Saturday but nothing eventuated.

So today I am sharing a "little girl" die cut I made last year and added to a card.  She is made from Kaisercraft Memory Lane papers and is still one of my favourites

Here she is on a finished card... oh so cute!

I hope my crafting mojo returns soon and that I have get time to play.
Have a great day
