A blog (mostly) about my cardmaking although it does wander off topic from time to time!
Stay at home mum to Joseph (born December 2010) who will be getting a little brother or sister in March 2013, and part-time supply teacher, married to Anders, 'mum' to Tigger (3 year old long-haired tabby cat) and Tabitha (our new addition, little kitten born November 2011). Aunty (and godmother) to Tomos, godmother to Lee, Jessica and Olivia.
I used to spend all my money on shoes, then it all went on cardmaking and scrapbooking stash, now I don't get time to shop!
Our bedroom is now home to a million and one pieces of craft stash as the room that was my craft room is now Joseph's bedroom! :-)
A couple of weeks ago we were invited to a 60th birthday and retirement party. If you look in the shops you probably won't find one card that combines both sentiments, but when you make your own you can! So that's what I did...
* Ivory pearlescent card base from www.crafterscove.co.uk * Green marbled card from a stack I bought in a sale at www.thecraftbug.co.uk * Black paper from my stash * Die-cut glass from stash * Silver 'congratulations' tab from stash (originally bought from www.madaboutcards.com) a few years ago * Peel-off sentiments from stash
Lots of matting and layering and 3D foam pads to add interest as I didn't have a lot of time to make this with an 8 week old baby!
