A mix of sewing and cardmaking.
see my sewing blog for the details about the material on my desk.
There were some lovely comments left on last weeks WOYWW - thank you - I haven't got around to seeing everyone yet, but I will ;-)
Julia was very observant ....... she asked what the salt pig was for and if I always took off my foam squares in neat rows LOL I confess, yes, I am a bit 'thingy' about taking off my foam squares in rows :-)
the salt pig came from a kitchen clear out - I thought it might be useful for something ........... I think I have just moved one piece of junk from one room to another ;-)

I have had a very busy week this week. I needed two birthday cards - one for a 60th and one for an 8th - talk about opposite ends of the spectrum and BOTH cards are needed this weekend - nothing like leaving it till the last minute for inspiration to hit! LOL
The card for the 8 year old is for my nephew - the invitation arrived and made my decision on the type of the card to make very easy - a Harry Potter card ;-)
I try to make a personalised card when I can, and this card was no exception. I do hope that he still gets a kick out of seeing his own name on the card. I was inspired by an idea I saw over on CraftsUPrint using a curved card base to make a wobble card - and yes, the card does wobble!
Card was designed by me and cut out using the CraftROBO. The font is a free one called Parry Hotter.
The next card for a very dear friend who is celebrating reaching 60! There were times when he and his family thought he would never get there. Just this last week he spent some time in hospital with heart problems and there was a possibility the party would be cancelled. He is pretty tough, and was determined to be home in time to celebrate with family and friends.
Card was designed by me and cut out using the CraftROBO. The base of the card is a metallic gun metal grey and the numbers and balloons are a wonderful holographic cardstock - unfortunately I can't seem to find where I got it from, which is really bad, coz I want some more.
Here is the inside of the card - the word 'celebrate' comes from a disc that came with the ROBO.
I didn't realise until hubby brought it to my attention ................... it is a bit of a funny shape when you can't see the '60' LOL
boobs or bottoms ................ what do you see?
Either way, I know Alan will love it ;-)
