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.

Same Stamp, Different Day

So after the drive up from London (admittedly for most of which I was napping), Mummy Gibbs crafty stash got me all inspired and as I have spent an entire week away from my toys - including my NEW Promarkers - I thought it would be a good time to play and crack on with the ever increasing list of cards that I need to make.

Next week is my bestest friends birthday and I thought I would take the opportunity to express my girly side - I think this is the most girly card I have ever made - and actually I really enjoyed making it - mastering the fine art of paper rose folding - and despite what I thought when I started I really like it :)

This used:
Image: Penny Black, 3831H sentiments
Backing paper: Funky Hand CD "now that's funky"
Leone Em Pty Punch: CP30 Ash Branch
Circle Nesties
Ribbon, Brads from Jules stash box and Scraps I found in her very organised "pink" and "brown" draws

The Roses took me a little while to do - but mostly because I spent more time unsticking my fingers than should have been necessary for a "grown-up", and then of course Jules had to find which backing paper it was that I used from the many scraps she has lying around (there has been a crafting tornado come through Jules dining room).

Anyway, must dash before Jules starts trading my new pens for her old ones :)

I have entered this card in the Funky Hand and Penny Black Saturday Challenges, lets see what else I can get it in ... :)

The Beast!

So my boss at the pub has swanned off on holiday yet again leaving me to mind the flat and the beast that is her cat - Barney. Here he is helping me with my blog :)

He is not very happy with me at the moment as I was told he was on a diet and given explicit instructions about his feeding schedule - but apparently no one told Barney and he has taken it upon himself to seek revenge by covering everything in fur!

Also being at the flat means i don't have access to any of my toys and getting serious crafty withdrawals and have I even have plenty of time that I could be crafting in as Barney is very kindly getting me up nice and early lol. Will have to get a mega session in on the weekend with mummy Jules :)

Just three more sleeps - not including the nap in the car on the drive up :)
Good times
