Sweet Tweet

A busy day  today  - sorting out paperwork, then off to do some shopping before heading off to Shirley's for an afternoon of craft. I haven't been for a a couple of weeks so I had six cards to make up and while I toiled away Shirley got out the Big Shot and did some die cutting. We had a great chat and a cup of tea - a perfect afternoon! I promised I'd try and get a card made this weekend - so while I was still in crafting mojo mood I decided to make a card for this week's Less is More Challenge. The theme is Houses - so I've used a free stamp set with a lovely bird house. I've matted the card on black to define it better in the scanner.

Last week instead of craft, Sandy and I went to the Adelaide Craft Fair and spent up big - yet again after saying we were just going to look!!! We shared the purchase of a beading kit that made up 4 small Christmas Wreaths so yesterday at craft we made one up, this is mine the little Santa Bell was an extra that I bought.

Let It Snow

Well, I can't believe it's been so long since I have blogged! We were away and then I caught a nasty cold which has left me rather flat and by the time I get home from work all I want to do is sleep!
We had our craft get together today - only three of us as the others were busy - but I managed to make a card for Annabelle Blog's Challenge and we celebrated Joyce's birthday. No craft next week as the annual craft and quilt fair is on and we are going to go to that.
We are off up the river this weekend and then to Mt Gambier to visit our daughter next weekend, so I will be missing my regular Friday craft class with Shirley - maybe she and Doug will go out to lunch instead!!

It is most unusual for me to make a card without stamping - but the cuttlebug was out on the table and the brain started whirring!!

Card from stash - made up 13cm square card, embossed first piece with swiss dots, then a strip of snowflakes, I added a tiny strip of blue card, to break up the white, then mounted the sentiment on blue and adhered with 3d dots.
