Hello my dear friends!
I was away last Wednesday as I had to take my mom to the hospital as she had a check up on her healing and I am very happy to say she is much better - she was actually told she doesn't need crutches anymore unless she walks a very long distance! Also her arm has healed well so all in all she is ok and I think she is very happy about it! I think the thought that she would have to go into a home really scared her so she did all she could to make herself better! I spent the whole weekend there - we went shopping, she had a new ID card made (as she will be 80 on Saturday!) and I cleaned the house for her so she is ok for a while!
As you are now updated with all the goings on here in Cardarian's land I will now show you my messy desk!
What you are looking at is an already half tidyed up desk - I had a 15X15 cm space to make my card - I think I have some illness called messinitis as I can never have a nice and clean tidy desk!
I will tell you a secret - I have gone absolutely mad about dies! I am just so in love with the Memory Box ones but also others - they are so intricate and versatile you can do all sorts with them! So you will probably see quite a few cards with these dies on my blog in the next months! Of course I haven't stopped doing stamping - I also love rubber! Oh well to be honest I love everything crafty! I think that is the reason I can not decide on any style! I like to do all sorts - I would be bored with just one technique for the rest of my life! Here is one of my latest creations - I used a few dies a stencil and an embossing folder of course you can't make a card without a bit of TH DI and my newest toy the Wink of Stella pen - love it!
Here you can see that lovely shine from the Wink of Stella pen...
This card was made for a friend of mine who's birthday is today - she already recieved the card so I am ok to show it...
Next is a card I did with more stamping - I have combined two stamps and I really like the outcome and also dies and flowers which I jazzed up with a bit of gold color - this was a card for another one of my friends....
I now have to put on my thinking cap and make a really nice card for my moms 80th! You will see that soon...
I hope you have all heard about this mad thing that goes on somewhere in England - people congregate and show their messy desks! The leader of all this madness is a lady called Julia at Stamping Ground - go over there and see what it is!
My dear friends I wish you all a lovely week
Lots of hugs to you,
