I've had a productive day so far which makes a change!
First up and just in time is this beary special atc for My Time to Craft whose challenge is Teddies, the image is a stamp from a craft planet set we originally bought for the girls!!! I've not made an atc for a long while, this will no doubt end up on top of a card somewhere in the future! the following card was very much inspired by one Nikki (Tink) made a while ago which I loved, simple layers of card and pretty papers. I've made this to send to my in-laws as a 'Thinking of you card, as on Thursday my FIL has to go to court for something quite ridiculous, which has been concocted by 2 quite simply put idiots. I just wanted them to know that we will be thinking off them.
and last for today (although I have made more) a card using one of the beautiful flowers I de-headed on Saturday, I tried to match the colours to the flower and when I made it thought maybe a 'symapthy' card although it could be a 'thank-you' or 'best wishes' anything really, and left the sentiment off so I could add it later. However at Jack's party yesterday Kay told me that our friend Leanne was bringing her girls to the party as she didn't want them to miss out, but her mum had passed away the day before so not to talk to her. How sad and very brave I know I couldn't have done it, I desperately wanted to go over and offer my condolences but didn't want to upset her, she did however come and sit near us and talked to me about it a little. Our girls adore each other and played and hugged all the time we were there which was lovely, if only the circumstances for Leanne had've been different. So this card is being sent to her and her family to also let them know we are thinking of them.
and to finish on a happier note, I made another appearance in 'Quick Cards Made Easy' this month (could've posted this ages ago, but forgot!) the article was about 'the last craft items we had bought' funnily enough a few days prior to the request I had been shopping at the Range and had taken a piccie of my stash! What an awful picture I sent in of myself, this was taken on the promenade at Mundsley when Matthew and I went for a stroll after our meal, when we stayed at his mum and dad's bank holiday weekend, it was sooooo..... dark, the camera flash was blinding!
