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.

1st Anniversary

So there seems to be a few Anniversaries popping up in Feb, but the 1st one (in that it is their 1st and the 1st in my year) is only a few days away :) So I thought to myself I aught to crack on with a card and get it posted :)

So with a first anniversary being paper what could be better than a card with some amazing backing papers on it?

The image is Penny Black 1590 F Loving Mice, which I have coloured with Promarkers, all of the backing papers are from Funky Hand - I Do Word Book, and card candy from the stash.

I am going to enter this in to this months funky hand challenge - Going round in circles!

Now off to get the prep done for my friends wedding invitations...

Belated Blog Birthday

I will try not to forget again, though I can't promise anything :)

On a roll

OK, so still technically in my "first week" of the year and already another post - no doubt I wont be able to keep this up but I will try, she says :)
So as I live in a shoe box whenever I get out my crafty toys they seem to take over - my wonderful husband usually doesn't say anything - at least not for a few days - but at the minute they are in the bath and blocking the bathroom door, so I thought I would get a few cards done so I could put at least some of the bits away, I do understand that the baths primary purpose isn't for stamp storage :) although to be honest it's not like it's big enough to have a bath in either!

So today's share is my Mum's birthday card. She isn't really in to reds and pinks but I got these bits out for Jule's Sunday Scrap, thinking Valentines, but thought they looked to good here to hoard for any longer.

The image is Penny Black's 2070K Frequent Flyer, Flowers from Bee Crafty, and the embossing is Provo Craft's Iron Works. Scraps from the box, and coloured with Promarkers, I am going to enter this in a couple of challenges: I Lv Promarkers, Sir Stampalot Challenge, and Penny Blacks @ Allsorts too.

Right I'm off now to create some more - must get Paul's Valentine card done - and a couple of anniversary ones too, then I'll empty the bath :)

Another New Year

Ok, so I know that technically it's not the start of the year but this is the first creation of the ear, and as I was away for the first three weeks of January my new year is starting now (ish), that way making me seem more productive than I actually am.

So first birthday card of the year goes to my hugely talented nephew Benjamin, who has had one of his short stories published on his schools blog, and it is way better than anything I could have written when I was his age, and possibly even now! If you are interested you can see it here. I can't believe he is only turning eleven!

I am joining Jules this week in the Scrap Sunday using up bits and pieces that are lying around, and have even incorporated some of my husband's old wax pictures too for the background,
and the image is a lily of the valley that I 'pinched' a little while ago and coloured with promarkers, and therefore is within the rules! Lucky for me I can also use it in the I Lv Promarkers Challenge this week.

Will try to get more blogging done this year - and be back soon!
