My Crafty Corner

Ok, so it turns out that the flat I live in is far to small for all of my crafty obsessions and creations, and I have therefore spread them out on the massive crafty table that is the internet, this is My Corner.
Generally speaking everything I make is to be given away - even if I don't want to - but now at least I can keep them on here.

Creative Treat

So after being terribly busy making birthday invitations - and designing save the dates, invitations and orders of service for my friend Gill's little sister's wedding I decided that I had earned a non invitation based crafty treat.

Rather excitingly my new stamps from Whiff of Joy arrived yesterday - pesky ash cloud finally left us in peace - so I thought I would have a play with one of these - and of course they are now my new favourites :)

This Used:
Image: Whiff of Joy - Willow with Umbrella
Backing Papers - Funky Hand Minty Madness and Salt and Pepper
Card Candy - Granny Smiths

The photo is a bit rubbish as the sun had moved around the corner by the time I had finished!

Of course making cards is super fun, but seeing how many challenges you can get them in to is almost as good :) I have managed three with this little number:

Get Funky Challenge - April Showers
I Love Promarkers - Black, White + 1 other colour
Whiff of Joy Challenge - Sketch challenge

Off to continue playing, and I may cook tea too :)


  1. Ah, this is lovely. I have that Willow image and I love it. I think the black and white with just a touch of green is really effective.

    I've been pretty busy recently so not had much time to blog hop and I see you've been making some fabulous cards.
