I have been missing for a couple of months. The loss of dad has been difficult, and I have had no inclination to access the creative part of my brain . I have forced myself to sit down with my colouring books and pencils to just relax,and slowly healing is taking place. I have made a few Christmas cards, I’m not sending them out this year, so they will be put away for the fair.These ones are made in my favourite style – Vintage! The paper is from Uniquely Creative and is called a Very Vintage Christmas. I really have only used the papers, with just a little bling and gold twine on the second card. I will be back soon with more Christmas, in the meantime stay safe !
Here are the last few cards I have made with Mintay Merry little Christmas paper collection. I have only added a little ribbon and lace and some silver mirror card. Great collection for simple easy to post christmas cards! These last few weeks , in between rain showers we have been expanding the vegetable garden. We have a shadehouse, seed raising pods, and a couple more beds, all ready for spring planting, so the cardmaking has slipped to the back burner, but now that the garden is ready for vegetable production I should be able to get back to the craft table. I havent completely stopped though. I have been colouring in the evenings while watching tv, it’s so very relaxing and something I need just now!
Til next time, stay safe!
One card this week! It is a very special card because it was for my dads 90th birthday. He is an avid reader and his birthday present included some books so I made him a bookmark, with a special vellum pocket on the second panel of the three panel card to pop it in. Everything I have used, including the bookmark die and tassels come from Uniquely Creative. The paper is from a collection of theirs called The Story Garden. Next week ..more cards made with this collection… I hope you have all had a safe, and happy Easter..til next time , stay safe..
