Hello Fellow Crafters! Guess what? - my mojo has been and gone awol again! Just typical, when I have special birthdays around the corner (my mum, dad, goddaughters, niece, nephew, father in law, fathers day!! OMG, when I see it written, no wonder my mojo has gone away - it's stressed (lol!).
My Mum has recently been in hospital again (home again now and hopefully on the road to recovery!). Just before she went into hospital, she gave me a pile of cards I'd made for her/my Dad in the last few years, so that I could recycle the embellishments etc - and when she was in hospital I tried to find the Get Well card I gave her last time she was in - I was going to give it to her again (ha! ha!) but I couldn't find it (teach me to be lazy!!). I did admit it to her though, and she did see the funny side! And I very nearly recycled one of the old cards to give her again for her birthday this week (how bad is that!!!) - I thought about taking the front off a card, and making it into an easel card. But I haven't done that - I made her a card using a free decoupage kit I had with a magazine a little while ago - quite a nice card but not very inspirational, so I haven't photographed it to show you (actually, truth be told, I forgot!, but it wasn't as special as it should be for my Mum!)
Anyway, now to show you two new home cards I did manage to come up with last weekend - one for a new neighbour we have, and one for one of my husband's workmates.
The image I've used for both cards was a free digi image from Digital Delights (I think! - sorry if I've got that wrong though - it's down to my poor filing on my computer! - my cyber filing is not much better than my paper filing (lol!)). I coloured the image with promarkers. The papers are also a digi download - Summer Driggs Easy Breezy. I sprayed the papers with Crafters Companion Gold Spray n Sparkle, and added some stickles and gems to the flowers (which were part of the digi download)
I'm going to enter these cards in the following challenges:
Dare U 2 Digistamp - Anything Goes
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Anything Goes
PaperPlay Challenge - Stamped or Digi Image plus Bling
Don't think I've entered any of those challenges before!
Thanks for looking, and I'd love it if you had time to leave me a comment!
Love, Andrea xx
