Well, hello my friends. I cannot believe it is four weeks since I last posted.. Where on earth did the time go? However, hello from a currently cooler North Wales. Being a red-head, I really don’t do heat very well, so this week has been much easier for me. I confess to having been somewhat busy since my last post – card making fests, trips to stay with both halves of my family, Step Inside getting busier each week, leading worship at church. Time has flown, and my desk has alternately been completely empty and tidy (the night before going away), and heaped up to the rafters (around an hour after I started each card making session). The end results, though, have been positive. The hotel keeps asking for more cards, and now I am also preparing for a Coffee, Cake and Craft morning for a local charity.

So, my desk this evening – it’s what we are all here for…

This is the aftermath of this morning’s efforts. Part of a pile of cards is front right, clutter and useful bits and bobs in the middle, black folder which holds my stencils on the left. On top of the clear box of inks on the shelf is the bottom half of a made box – I hope to make lots more little gift boxes for the craft stall. On the desk are some small die-cut Christmas trees. I rather like the samples I have made – so hopefully can make a few more. Far left, on top of the printer, is the plastic box where the cards all go when finished, bagged and priced – beginning to look satisfactorily stuffed!

I have also made a couple of blankets since last posting…

Thought I would gloat a little with a few pictures of cards I have made this past three weeks. Couldn’t possibly show them all – and the images are not brilliant as I suddenly found myself with over 70 photos to take! Had to rush somewhat!! However..

Woven ribbons:-


Using some photographic images:-


Texture paste with some gold glitter glue on the white areas:-


Glittery texture paste:-


And finally, a digital image which I added a little colour to, and used a die cut layer or two and a velvety thread I dyed ages ago:-


Just a small sample!! I hope you have stuck with it this far – take a gold star or two! So that’s me late on Tuesday evening – ready for bed, things strewn everywhere, having to be up early tomorrow to do the shopping for Step Inside, so I have no idea when this will be linked… but I’ll do it somehow!

Take care my friends. God bless you.
