Crafting Fun

Well it is a couple of weeks since my last post. I spent a long weekend with my best friend and her family for Easter and did manage to get some crafting in with my 9 year old Godson. We did some Decopatch, although we did not have the right glue I do not think our attempts were too bad. Matthew did a Dinosaur and I did a Teddy Bear.
Matthew was that impressed with his attempt that it came to Snettisham Deer Park with us on the Sunday. This afternoon I have managed to make two cards, a leaving card for a work colleague who will be finishing on Wednesday, and a Birthday Card for my Partner's Grandaughter who will be 7 years old in May.
The leaving card was created using the nesting dies CD-ROM from My Craft Studio and a Clipart image from the Serif PagePlus 5.0 CD-ROM.
The birthday card was created using the Daisy punch from Tonic Studios. The topper was taken from the Crafter's Companion Barkley Everyday Papercrafting CD-ROM.

Crafty Day

Well let's us start with catching up on some of the cards I made last weekend which got finished yesterday. The first was made using dies from Tattered Lace (Trio of Owls and Lacy Daisy). The background was embossed on Centura Pearl cardstock using the free embossing folder which came with the eBosser. I then inked this with Espresso Adirondack. The trellis was a remnant left over from a previous card and is a Spellbinders die. This was made for a member of the Westdale Trefoil Guild who will be celebrating her 70th birthday next month.
The second card was made using the Embellishment Attic CD-ROM by My Craft Studio. The background paper was designed using the Shabby Sweet CD-ROMs, also by My Craft Studio. This was made for a work colleague who will be celebrating her 30th birthday at the end of the month.
The Easter Card was made using Craft Artist 2 Professional and free digikits from Daisytrail. This card will be for my Godson and I incorporated a pocket to put in a little gift.
The final one was made this afternoon and is for a work colleague who will be leaving the company at the end of the month. I used the Nesting Dies CD-ROM from My Craft Studio. The image of the Cricketer was taken from the Art Gallery which came with Serif PagePlus 5.0
