30th October 2011

Happy Halloween everyone.
Well I am still plodding away with my blog, I hope that I can keep it up ha ha.
Today's card is a really quick male card. I always struggle with men's cards as do a lot of people.
For the card base I have used a beige heavy wood grain.  I have used a downloaded print which I have decoupaged and have decorated it with string from my greenhouse because I wanted a rugged appearance, I must say that I think it works quite well to say that it only took me a very short time to make xx.

29th October 2011

Well, three days have passed and I am still here. I have just realized that there is very little time before Christmas and I will as usual be struggling the week before to get all my cards done, I have therefore made a concerted effort and produced my first card this morning.

I have used cream  for the base card although it looks white in the picture. For the topper I have used the same cream card and stamped and embossed in gold and matted it onto gold miri card. The Christmas tree stamp is a Clarity one. Thee background card I stamped with an ivy corner and snowflakes from the Sheena Douglas collection.
Right, now I am on my way.

My New Blog 26th October 2011

I have at last succumbed and decided to start a blog. I haven't a clue what I am doing but I am sure that you will be patient with me.
The first card that I have made since starting the blog is a stepped Halloween card. The body of the card is plain black card and the steps are covered with black glitter card. The witch images are digi stamps from the Cute Daisy May collection from Linnie Pink and they were coloured using Pro Markers. The rest of the images and sentiments are free downloads from Crafters Companion.

27th October

Well this is the second day, I was up until well past midnight last night getting this far and I was quite surprised to see that the blog is still here this morning. The only thing is that I can't remember how to post my web address as a live link but if you are reading this you must have found it so some kind person must have pointed me in the right direction. It's hard work this blogging lark Ha ha ha
