We woke up to rain today and except for an hour from 2-3pm it has rained all day. Managed to take a quick walk up to the local shop for our weekly paper and that was it. Took the decorations down at last – yes I know we were at least a day late but somehow we didn’t get it done yesterday. The house seems very bare now but very tidy. Won’t last though – never does!!
My share today was my December friendship swop card over on Docrafts. I’m sure the lady concern has got it by now as I posted it on New Years Eve. I took three photos but hope this shows a bit of all of it.
I started off with a Craftwork card base and added a piece of paper from a free pack. I have added glossy Accents to some of the roses on that paper and a sentiment I won from Artistic Stamper last year. I wasn’t too happy with the result as it seemed a bit too ‘easy’ somehow. There was a piece of the spotty embossed card on my desk which was crying out to be used so I edged it with my Martha Stewart punch added a paper flower from my stash and some peel-off words and a few gems and attached it to the back so it opened separately. It did work quite well though it was difficult to photograph.
Today I also managed to complete a card which I will enter into a few challenges. Need to photo that though in daylight so that will be a tomorrow show.
Hope tomorrow is a bit dryer than today as the washing is building up now.
Take Care and Happy Crafting.
