crafty fun with crafty friends

I have been attempting to put some order in my craft room of late - still got a long way to go, but while I was tidying up, I was wondering what to do with my calendar received from Kaye at my CraftMad Weekend away in 2014

I printed a photo taken on that weekend, and slipped it in where the calendar was sitting :)  problem solvered!

Still working on tidying up the study/craft room and will reveal all when done :)


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day.

Off to a good start ...................

My first cards for the year :)

I wanted to make a card for my friend Joy's birthday, and I knew I wanted to use a Ladybird, and I was drawn to my Penny Black stamps that I have had for years, but never used - so all that was left was to find a layout ............ harder than you think!

I came across an excellent sketch on the Sweet Sunday Sketch blog - unfortunately, it is the last sketch for that blog :(  However, I think I will keep it bookmarked so that I can go back and use some of the other sketches :)



I used Sketch #300, but changed the proportions of the centre panel so it wouldn't take anything away from the Penny Black image :)

The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is anything goes, as long as you use a Penny Black image.

I was on a roll, the creative juices started flowing, and these cards came together in a few hours!  The hardest part was trawling through my DP to find something suitable for the background.

I decided to make two cards, one rectangle and one square.  I like them both, but think I will give the square one to my friend Joy :)




EDITED:  the pink rectangle card is available in my ETSY store :)  I guess it could be used for several purposes: birthday, hello, thinking of you, missing you, or simply just because :)
