I managed 2 cards yesturday in less than an hour, I couldn't belive it, all I can think is I knew exactly what I wanted to do for them and had them already made in my head. I will do 2 separate posts so I don't get confused as I seem to do that quite easily of late, perhaps its all the trying to keep Andrew occupied and in a hapy frame of mind, which I'm managing most of the time. Hopefully my parents will come again for lunch on sunday as it makes the day seem longer and gives Andrew different company, they are coming today so I can take mum shopping and Andrew gets to spend time with his Granddad. Today Andrew is planning on them watching a dvd, as dad brought him the first of the first 24 series which he was obviously too young to watch it when it was aired but has really got into this series.
Well enough waffle, my first card. Initally this was a card for the challenge at cards for men who wanted a predominantly green card. I decided that I couldn't do everything green so the cream dot paper just breaks it up a little and keeps it looking clean, well thats what I think.
ICS had a lovely simple layout that I rotated but in my minds eye it was just what I needed as it allowed me to keep the lines clean and simple, my kinda card, simple like melol.
Cupcake crafty challenge want to keep it simple with their #78 challenge and as thats what I had in mind with this card its as if the challenge was made just for my card,I know it wasn't.
Papertake weekly wanted us to check- sorry use checks so I can enter their challenge with my squiggly line green and blue checks.
Now I'm getting quite into this stitching but as yet haven't quite cleared enough space on my desk for my sewing machine. I keep looking for one of those little one that use to be advertised for about £20 for doing hems and things as I figure that would be the perfect size for my cluttered desk, well it always looks cluttered ,it just has my pens, glues , tapes, and things I use all the time on.I just don't have alot of spare room and I can't get a bigger desk as the rooms not big enough.Anyway there are 2 challenges this week who would like us to use stitching, the first is Sophisticats and the other is Crafty Creations.
