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.

Last Play...

So this afternoon I had my last play (for about a week ish) before the mass clean up that will occupy at least tomorrow if not Monday too :)
This evening saw the pre-emptive first strike where I finally managed to organise our millions of DVD's into the storage cases in alphabetical order - I'm a bit OCD and I don't care as now I have more room for my toys :)

So this is the last creation of the week
end - unless I get mega busy tomorrow. I checked out the challenges before I started and reckon I can get it into Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the allsorts challenge :)

This used:

Ribbon and Brads from the stash

As the allsorts challenge states no ready made design papers rather than leaving the card plain I thought I would just draw my own - checks are super easy and with the amazing range of promarker shades it works really well.

That's it. Job done! :)

Back to work on the tidying i suppose...

Second Saturday

So it is Saturday mark II in London and all is going well. Yesterday Paul and I had an exciting cinema day watching two new 3D films - Clash of the Titans and (the much more exciting) How to Train Your Dragon.

Unsurprisingly not much crafting got done but I did manage to create this girly number for one of the birthdays in May - probably my Sister's - which I will be entering in the I Lv Promarkers Challenge!

This used:
Image: Forever Friends; Special Present
Promarkers:Blush, Dusky Pink, Pastel Pink and Rose Pink
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Fancy Corner
Papers from scraps box and of course a couple of the paper roses :)

I seem to be going through a bit of a pink phase at the minute - but it's Ok as I spoke to my Bestest friend Claire and she is too - must be something in the Thames :)

Just one more card to do before the toys go away! I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing :)

A Late Share

So it suddenly occurs to me that I deliberately didn't share the card I made for Jules last week so as to not ruin the surprise for her, and then it completely slipped my mind until just now so I thought I would put it on all be it a week later :)

This is my second attempt at playing with my Walnut Hollow toys and I am dead chuffed with it even if I do say so myself!

The main image is a Hero Arts Flourish and the roses I used from a card I received and have recycled. I think I need to get more cards with these little embellishments on just so I can reuse them myself :) I must point Paul in this direction :)

Rather disappointingly I managed to make Jules and Dave an anniversary card without taking a photo so I can't share, however Paul didn't tell me it was a big one, so wasn't themed :( MEN! :)

Another Birthday

Who would of thought it but birthdays keep coming round - it's almost as if everyone has one every year! :)
So the idea was that last weekend I would have a crafting session to get enough cards done to get me through the next couple of mon
ths so that I could put my toys away and tidy up ready for Jules and Dave coming down next weekend for the exciting crafty fun at Ali Pali! What actually happened was I had to go to work on Saturday and Sunday was spent chillaxing and getting ready for work on Monday - still a nice long 3D filled weekend coming up - with plenty of time for crafting AND tidying, just one more work day to go, but I thought I would sneak in a crafty card, not sure who it is for yet but fits nicely with the penny black challenge so it's all good :)

Here we go:

Scrap paper for Roses :)
Mica Pigments on the wings - got more on me and my table than on the card but never mind :)

Back soon
