A change from the Valentine Cards I have been making all week, it is my D I L's birthday soon, and I do like to get ahead with my personal cards, and I love this sketch from Mojo Monday, you can make it round or square. I used a scalloped circle from Craftworks Cards and then cut a square card into a circle as the base,and then glued the finished card to the base card.
Another Valentine Card for this Sketch from Card Patterns, I was asked if I had that many boyfriends and the answer to that is "I Wish" not really I,m perfectly happy with the one I've got. I,m hoping to sell some, and I can't miss the chance to make lots of scrummy lovely cards.
We are back in good old blighty, and boy is it cold, actually they have had the worst winter ever in the Algarve this winter and we arrived there in the most awful rain, and it rained for a few days, but we did have some nice days too, as you can see from the above photo. Busy catching up with all your blogs and challenges that I have missed, will try to do some crafting inbetween all the washing and ironing.
I have seen a lot of these cards around blog land, and I think they a wonderful idea, I did think they might be difficult to make but no they are easy peasy. I will definitely be make more of these.My neighbour asked me to make a card for her Dad who will be 90 soon. Hope she likes it.
It started to snow last night and hasn't stopped since I'm afraid I am a southern softy now we are so not used to so much Snow, this is the most we have seen in 20yrs. Hubby can't get to work again. But we might try to get into Town later, need some Euros for our hols. And more immediately we need milk.
Sorry I have neglected my blog for a few days haven't done any crafting for a while.
As I changed my calendar on the the 1st of Jan, I thought that I would show you some of the pages I made for last years calendar pages. these were made using the Calendar kit from Basic Grey.
I made 3 cards yesterday so its seems my Mojo is back, I will post these later, busy sorting out my clothes, well thsoe that fit me that is, as we are off to the Algarve for 2 weeks soon and we will be glad to escape the cold for a while.
Only put on 2lbs over Xmas so not to bad 1 more weigh in before my hols, Brian is taking his golf clubs, so hope to get in plenty of exercise walking round the golf courses with him.
