Funky Hand Challenge

I'm having a go at my first challenge. I've never had the courage to get involved before so here goes. I've made this card using nesties, a few peel-offs (as I've got so many and never use them) and some paper from the Dreams Come True collection called Darkness Lifts. I've finished it off with a brad from a pack I bought in the Hobbycraft sale for 29p (bargain) and filled the centre with glitter glue. I've made it as a "Thank You" card and the front opens to enable you to put another message in if you want to. Now all I have to do is work out how I get this entered in the challenge!!!!

Saturday 8th Jan

Not quite every day but at least I've improved on my previous record. Two posts in the same week can't be bad!
Had to make a sympathy card this week which is always tricky. Less is more I think. I've used an image from Pink Petticoat and also a scalloped edge punch from Fiskers. I also added a few small clear gemstones to finish it off.
I'm trying to sort out my craft room starting with all the magazines I have. I'm keeping some of them but the rest I'm going to look through, pull out any that inspire me and then recycle them. I have to have a serious sort because I hate working in a mess. If I can, my aim is to be able to find enough room so that my Big Shot can be on my work desk as I use it so much.
No home game this weekend but the Leeds game was brill especially as we won 2-1. Come on you Bluebirds :)

New Year, new resolution

I'm going to try and keep this blog going all year if I can. I think it's because I know no one is reading it that I lose interest. I've had a new camera for Christmas so I will try and put a photograph on everyday of my cardmaking. This is todays entry using funky hand papers from the Colour my World CD. Going to the football tonight Cardiff City vs Leeds.......a crucial game for us. Hope it's not too cold.
