Hello my dear WOYWWers!
So happy to be back blogging but as I am so busy it is still very rarely that I can come on here! Still the work in the house is chugging along and we are almost finished with the first lot of improvements. The kitchen has been slightly renewed we have a new dish washer and washing machine, we have ordered new wardrobes for the bedroom and my future craft room is beginning to take shape. My DBFs sofa bed is coming this week ( he is going to have an operation soon and we needed a bed downstairs as he won't be able to go upstairs for a while). So that is what is happening on the home front. On the crafty front there is also news!
I HAVE A NEW SEWING MACHINE!!!
It isn't a superfancydoeseverything one but for the beginning of my renewed sewing career it is good enough! I used to sew a lot when my daughter was young but then other things took over and I didn't do much sewing at all. I am hoping to get back on the horse and start again - especially as there is so much decorative sewing to do in the house now!
I have also made a few cards - my mojo is a bit low lately - I have ideas but they come and go and when I sit down to make something there isn't much of a result! Still here are a few examples of my latest makes.
Here is an Easter card....
The stamp is a lovely Avery Elle one, I fussy cut the bunnies and gave them a bit of glitter and a lift, the oval frame is Sizzix and the paper in the background is from some magazine I have picked up at Tesco's .
Next up is a card I made for my brother - it is his name day tomorrow so I sent him a card ....it is quite simple but you can't really make a card too frilly for a man, can you? I did go with the trend and put some mirror card on the card - it should have been foil but I am not very good with foil so I opted for mirror card.
The die and stamp is from Clearly Besotted stamps
Next up is a card I made for my DBF's granddaughter. The stamps are a combination of Mama Elephant and Lawn Fawn.....just a cute card for a special little girl...
And now a bit of spring for you.....the flowers are trying to convince us it is spring but the temperatures are not really that convincing!
Our camelia is just coming out.....
and the daffodils....
So there that is me for this weeks episode of WOYWW. Go on if you are interested what that weird combination of letters means have a look at the Stamping Ground and you will find out all the deep secrets of WOYWW.
Lots of hugs to all, have a lovely week,
