I decided it was about time I posted some of my creations. I have not been making many cards in recent months, but I have made two in the last couple of weeks. I've also done some knitting, and some jewellery making. So this could turn out to be a long post - sorry!! You're welcome to just look at the photos LOL! But I do love to receive comments if you would like to let me know you called by :)
The first card I made was for my Uncle who is very unwell at the moment. I wanted to let him know that we are thinking of him - my Mum went to visit him on the day the card arrived, so I know he had it and was very pleased to receive it.
The image is a stamp from Whiff of Joy, and I have paper pieced it. I kept the card fairly simple, and used various dies.
The next card was a birthday card for a friend at work. She said a couple of weeks ago that she loves the colour purple - I'm sure this is purple enough!!
The image for this card is a digi from Saturated Canary (the same image as in my previous post), and I've coloured her with Promarkers. This card is simple too, with a Lakeland sentiment, some fabric flowers, and a little bit of ribbon (left over from making the present below :))
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me Challenge - Bling It Up - I used glitter card for the mat for the image, plus I put some stickles around the image, also just added one pearl in the corner, the flowers have some pearly stamens, and does the ribbon count as bling?
Natalie and Amy - Monochromatic
So now to the present - I have been wearing the ribbon bracelets I make recently, and I've had quite a few lovely comments - I'm not very good at taking compliments, but I am very pleased to receive them when I think about it afterwards. Anyway, it was suggested that I make one of these bracelets for this friend at work - so I made a purple one. I also made some dangly earrings with amethyst, crackled quartz and shell pearl.
I made another friend at work a ribbon bracelet but I don't seem to have downloaded the photo - I'll try to remember to show that in another post.
But I did download the gemstone bracelet I made - I've recently bought some coloured beading thread, and had an attempt at a different macrame stitch (not the usual square stitch I've used before). The gemstones are fuchsia coloured agate. I actually love the way this bracelet has turned out, and I think I'm going to try some in different colours; I'm also going to try one with wire.
And, as I've noticed that I've had over 10,000 hits on my blog (that was a surprise!), I might just put a bracelet up as candy if I can work out how to go about that - watch this space.
Anyway, I think that's enough from me. I'll love you and leave you for now.
Thank you for taking the time to have a looksey - I hope you like what you've seen.
Love, Andrea xx
