Hello, hello!! Are you still there? Here I am – it’s only been four months and a couple or so weeks ….. Life got in the way of blogging, things happened, we got through it all and now I’m even back making again.
Siddy is visiting his second favourite place today. He’s up at MudPuppy for his monthly beauty treatment and play date with his girls. My car is in the hospital having its own spa treatment and I have a whole day to myself. So I thought I’d pop by and get this show on the road again.
While I’ve been gone I spent a couple of weeks sifting and sorting through my makings room. I found stuff tucked away in drawers and cupboards and boxes that I never used because I couldn’t see them. When you are a crafter it’s important to have the supplies out where you can see them isn’t it. I discovered I have so much stuff it was overwhelming and I scarce knew where to begin. I decided to start slow, to work my way through my stamp collection and to use as many supplies as humanly possible while I did so…….
A card for a friend who is plagued by lagomorphs in her garden plot. I have a wicked and mean sense of humour and just wanted to send her something cute to alleviate her garden angst …… She may not appreciate it, but I think it’s hilarious. If you follow Lisa over at https://arlingwords.wordpress.com you’ll know what I’m referring to. (Good heavens, what’s happened to my ability to link to blogs?)
I’m still making starry night sky backgrounds – they are satisfying way of playing with all kinds of inks and sparkly stuff, there are bunny dies and word dies and that leafy surround is also a die. Finished off with some faux grass I found tucked away in a drawer
Not a card, a pen and ink and glitter making for an old client who needs some cheering. It measures 24 x 21 cm.
Llamas have replaced owls as my new fad for fun cards. I started with plain Llamas and dressed them up. One stamp, two cards ……….
This first one is an A4 card, Ms Llama sports a jaunty turban, stylish neckwear and a begemmed blanket and the card is strewn with gold leaf flakes and various sparkly facets that add to the necessary gorgeousness of it all.
The second, a smaller A5 card utilised some of the shiny cardstock in the stash, a larger turban and just as much bling
I think 2020 is going to be a year of sparkle and bling…….
Thanks for coming by today, I love that you did.
