Wishing you a Sweet Day

Wow. Another post so close to my last one. More to the point, another card, so close to my last one. I'm feeling extremely proud of myself for sticking to my "new year promise" of finding more time to craft!!! Guess what? I actually sewed on my machine. Now if you knew me, you would know that sewing is like an extreme sport to me. I'd rather go and jump out of an aeroplane. I never learnt to set up a sewing machine. When all the kids in my class was sewing, I was sat at the back of the classroom, knitting. (My Mum and Dad owned a wool store).  I was always in disgrace with my teacher because I flatly refused to learn to sew. So at 44 years old, this was no easy task for me. Anyway, apart from the sewing, nothing new on this card. Thanks for coming to take a look. Have a great day.

Oh Christmas Tree

Hi guys. Now I know this is really lame, BUT, Christmas went by sooooo fast I didnt get chance to update my blog. Now your not going to believe this but I only made 2 (yes ,two) cards this Christmas. I'm ashamed to say I bought the rest (shock, horror). This is one of them that I made for my very dear friend, Deb. I would NEVER give her a bought card. I think she would throttle me, what with all the shopping trips we have to go buy new goodies!!! I used Flower Soft on the tree and underneath the ribbon I used a technique I found on someone's blog called paper lace. I wish I could remember her name. It was so cool. If I remember I will let you know. Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and I would like to wish  you all a very crafty 2010. Happy New Year to all you crafters out there. May we all have more time in our craft rooms than we really need..... hehe.
