Craft Storage

Been working hard, we have a new software system at work so have been posting balances and trying to learn the new package over the last couple of weeks and weekends. Worked yesterday, but have made up for it today by going on line and spending some money. This time not on craft but the next best thing...............SHOES!! Hope they fit when they get here (notice the work 'they' haha).

My hubby Dean has helped to put up my new craft storage....some shelving, and look there is some room so watch out next month the spending could be on crafting items! I really should start to use some of it more regularly lol.

Also I have sorted my buttons today into a container that I can get my fingers into more easily. Think I get as much pleasure out of sorting the crafting items as I do buying and using it!!

My next ATC today is called Olly! I have got my stamps out and distressing ink. I had to cover the owl to be able to put blue around him, them I covered the ATC but left the owl showing to colour the owl. A little glitter helps to lift the stamping.

Magic Slider ATC

This is my first attempt. Next time I will stamp more aound the coloured picture that appears, and I now know of some teething problems. At least is worked. It's a shame about the photo of the coloured image I will try and replace it if I get time.

Some recent ATCs

A very different bunch, you see I have to do different things so that I do not get fed up. So we have decoupage, some stamping, painting, ageing, crackling, die cutting, Martha Stewart punching, moulding and matting and layering. All different colours and styles!

St Georges Parade

This was Noddy and my hubby Dean last Sunday at the local St Georges day parade. The day was rainy at 7am but as all the stalls set up the ground dried and we had no more rain all day. It was lovely. As our house it in the area where the roads were closed off, we were about for most of the day. Dean helped to put flags on the houses and clear the area after the day was done.

Baby Card

My cousin had a baby girl in March and this was the card I made. I nearly ran out of baby embellishments, I think I need to do some more stash buying, what a shame, any excuse to shop!!

Birthday card

Had a play with my nestabilities and Marther Stuart punches for this one. I think the paper was a Kay & Co piece. I stamped the image onto pink card using a sepia ink pad.

A 1st Birthday card

Did a bit of cross stitching for this first birthday card. I do love to cross stitch and have a few projects on the go, I just never seem to get them finished!
