Football Mad

I've had a lovely weekend, of crafting, it is ages since I immersed myself into just crafting for a whole weekend. Mostly I have been finishing off some half done projects, but I've also stamped out some images  just to colour them. In a couple of weeks I am spending some time with friends so I can show them how I colour. I was very flattered when they asked because I often look at other peoples work and wish I could use my Promarkers like they do. Still I suppose we all have to learn from somebody.
I made up one of the images into a card to enter into the Lili of the Valley challenge this month. The theme was male or sporty, I think this one would fit both and is probably apprpriate with the World Cup going on.

I've really rediscovered my colouring bug now, and it will be a welcome distration from the football on television.

No Explanation

Today I found time to play in my craft room. Its weeks since I did anything mainly because I've been concentrating on the garden. Sadly this means something has to give, and for me it was housework and crafting. The weather is so miserable today I decided to tidy the craft room. Well you know that always ends up with me crafting and just making a bigger mess.
While I was moving things around I came across a half finished book I started to make with the 12 days of Christmas in it. So I finished it off, now Ive got the crafting bug back and the rest of the weekend I will not be answering the phone or going out of the house I declare this a weekend of crafting.

Butterfly Birthday Wishes

Oh dear I missed past weeks post. I have a good excuse really, I was in the garden planting for two days. After 2 days and £120 spent on plants does it look any different. Well not really. I think its going to be a year or two for these to establish and fill out.

Needless to say the crafting took a back seat. But I do have this card that I made for my best friends birthday. It always has to be something special, I love making these pop up cards, they are so effective. It was a winner and took pride of place.
