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.

Back to Christmas

Get me with my multiple blogs in a week, I think London buses may be rubbing off on me ...

So with the epic amount of Xmas goodies I have to make I thought I aught to crack on, one card a day may just see me through, but not sure where I will find the time for the crochet, but at least I have found a solution to the crocheted label problem :)

So here is my share for today - rather naughtily this is actually the first Xmas card that I made - but you didn't know that!

I love this little guy (Wee) and he will be featuring on all my cards in one form or another :)

So here it is:

This used:

Image: Whiff of Joy Wee with tree
Backing Papers: Papermania 'A Christmas Carol'
Sentiment: Penny Black 2764F ...A Merry Xmas
Card candy and embellishment from the stash

So that's me again, I am entering this card in to the Whiff of Joy Challenge which this time is 'Distressing'.

Hallowe'eny Birthday

So it's a friends birthday today, and she just happens to be into all things Hallowe'en so thought I would use this as an excuse to buy more crafty goodies for a card she would love - not that I really need excuses but this seemed like a good one :).

Still busy finding time to get all my crafty Xmas organised but it's nice to do something that is not so Christmasy once in a while - i definitely need more days in my week!

So here it is:

And the full card:

This used:

Image: Penny Black 2253K Witchy Mouse
Embellishment: Provo Craft "Flowers" and "Granny Smith" card candy
Weathered Wood distress ink
Ribbon and paper from the stash.

I hope that she likes it, it was a bit of a last minute make as I had to wait for the stamp to arrive in the post, I was almost camping by the door :) Luckily there was a sketch for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week which I will be entering this little number into, and the theme for the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this month is Colours of Autumn so it will work for that too - bonus!
