A Heart of Gold

Just a quickie from me as I was in the theatre last night & will be again all today & tomorrow. That means mum's over here helping out & this time it's a Golden Wedding card she needs for a "do" on her return to the UK. La voila -shaker cards have to be my favourite makes.

Well I Never...

tried to colour a stamp! So I grabbed the kids' school watercolour crayons then scoured the house for... a brush! Now a brush is well outside my comfort zone & it was just as tricky as I thought it would be! But I now have a card for my son's birthday & have completed the Created by Hand challenge.

A Stitch in Time......

could have saved 900! My duvet began to split & I didn't mend it for yonks till... the whole seam came undone! I hadn't used my machine for years -sew before I began I fiddled around on a piece of card for fun to ease me into the chore-bore! This card is the result & is for the PTW challenge.

Knot Again!!

Thanks Dawny P for teaching me to knot ribbons. Knot to put too fine a point on it, it is exactly the same as on the glitzy post below. I could knot make the train I saw in my mind's eye for Rainbow Lady's Transport Challenge, so here is a boat instead!

Too Much can be, well... Too Much!

My U.S niece is 13. I'm crafting with difficulty just now so thought I'd do unlike me things -like use glitter! Well I certainly did that & gave myself a laugh in the process! I'll send it her anyway, for what it is -& hope you'll laugh along with me!

Play it Again, Sammie!!!

Thanks for encouraging me to blog. I'll try & post a few times a week. Please leave a "coucou" & I'll pop by your blog. This card is for Rainbow Lady's Music Challenge. It's the most requested one in my musical circles by the girlz for their men.
