Well hello everyone, its been far too long since I did any kind of blogging let alone joining in Julia's WOYWW blog hop! As you can see my desk is busy tonight, just finished the easel card on the left of the pic and just about to start another. If you want to join in WOYWW pop over to Julia's blog to find out what its all about ;-
Been having a play with my fab new Martha Stewart Doily cutter! Its brilliant, and as you can see cuts perfect doily's. I used 220gsm card stock for this one here and it was pretty easy to punch through. Its really easy to use too. Cuts a doily from 6 inches up to 12 inches.
Got quite in to CD crafting over the past couple of weeks & ended up buying a rake of them on E-Bay, although I did treat myself to 3 from Kraftyhands web shop. I used the Chic Boutique CD to make the three cards on the above pic. Love the colours & the die cut images are easy to cut out. Never really dabbled in CD crafting before as I was very unsure about printer settings & types of paper to use. However now I have a decent printer & sussed out the paper to use, its been great to try various CD's that are out there.
Well the past few months have been a real turmoil for me. I have two of my close family fighting Cancer and 5 weeks ago lost my very dear Big Brother, very sad, he was too young at 60 to leave this world, he was the eldest of six and I am the youngest. We were very alike in our ways & outlook on life and he was always the one I turned to in a time of need or crisis. I shall miss him more than I can say, I feel at a loss. I Craft to take time out, and I can say hand on heart I am so very glad I do! Its really kept me sane & busy in these tough times, it really is great therapy!
Happy to share with you all this post! Take care everyone & Thanks for stopping by!
Have a crafty week
