Hello I'm back on my blog


Well I think that may be the longest I have ever left my blog without posting as my last post was Friday. I don't know where the time goes some days. I have been very busy with a few orders. Luckily I had some of the cards which were suitable in stock so I just had to personalise a few of them. I have been making others though like this one. In fact I have sold more this last week than I do at some craft fairs!

I was asked to make two large floral cards for a lady who used to live locally but now lives in Cyprus. There is no postal service there to the UK at the moment so I typed messages in the cards and posted them to the care home for her. I was so pleased that she loves the cards and says the recipient will love them too.

I have some Hunkydory toppers which are lovely but quite big so making an 8" card enable me to use them. The paper is from a 12x12 pack from The Works. I punched and diecut some leaves and used some flowers I have had in my stash for a long time. The wooden bird is from Hobbycraft.

Back tomorrow with something different.

I've found the same Marianne, I guess because people are unable to get out us card makers fill the void nicely. And this is a very pretty one in all the shades of lilac.

A lovely card and beautiful colours. It's interesting to hear that you've made more sales than some craft fairs. I'm also having a busy time - I guess a lot of people can't get to shops to buy cards.
