Here it is Friday again – they come around so quickly. It is quite bright and sunny here so I’m risking putting the washing out for a good blow.
Yesterday was a good day as my exclusive ‘Hugbinders ‘ book arrived. These are a limited edition of just 70 handmade books produced by some members of the Docrafts Forum in memory of a special man who seems to have touch the hearts of many. They have been sold in aid of the Macmillan nurses.
This is my book and I was lucky to get one in my favourite colour. It is a lovely book with beautiful artwork, poems , memories and inspirational thoughts. It will be treasured by many.
I was pleased on Tuesday at WI that both my two little scrap cards were sold along with a few others. It is quite satisfying when that happens. I also sold one of my other cards which I had crafted as an alternative to the commissioned card I had been asked for. This is using a ‘Cuddly Buddly’ digi image I bought.
I distressed a piece of green card after embossing it and then placed a piece of Best Creation Inc paper on top. This paper has no name just the number GP073. There is a large Scalloped Rectangle topped with the image which I have used twice. The little picture is from a Kanban sheet and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. As you can tell I am very eclectic in my mix of brands.!!! I have finished the card off with some faux stitching and was actually quite pleased with it. I have a feeling there is a ‘Mens Cards’ challenge somewhere so I may link it up. Found it. In fact there are two so am linking this card up to the Moving Along With The Times Challenge : Card/ Project for a Male and also to the Creative Craft World Challenge : Card for a Male
This is all for now . Have a grand weekend and I will back next week with some more musings and mutterings.
