Dad


This is a pretty simple card and there is a reason for that. Where I work we have volunteers and one of the volunteers called Janet, her Dad will be celebrating his100th Birthday soon,  he is partially blind so she wanted a simple card with the word Dad on the front and she wanted that to be big so he could just about see it. I did this card in microsoft word and then just added some forever friends paper and used some Kanban clear stamps and finished off with some card candi. I hope she likes it.

Ordination


I tried to post this card yesterday but blogger was playing up yet again, so frustrating.

This is an Ordination card and when Maggie a colleague at work asked me to make it I freaked out because I am not religious and I had never seen an Ordination card before, so I find myself out of my comfort zone again lol.

I have used a digi from Mcmahon five designs, it's called easter cross but I thought it would be appropriate for this card. I have coloured in with promarkers then glazed the leaves and used a copicatyou clear glitter pen to add some subtle sparkle to the flowers and this looks good but you cannot see it in the photo's, then cut out using a nellie die. The DP is from my local craft shop, I have added a double border with my MS doily flower punch then added some lace to this and some punched out flowers with pearls in the middle. I then used my script embossing folder on some cream CS and added the image to this with foam pads and some ribbon left over from the one I have attached. The sentiments are computer generated and I finished off with some card candi, photo corners and pearls. I hope she likes it.

A Bad Day

No card on this post just a tale about my bad day. I have been to the Doncaster Dome today for the stamp magic show, I haven't been before and wanted to experience one. I don't think they are for me really, there was a mad dash for everything and it reminded me of jumble sales my mum used to take me too when I was little. Everyone was pushing and shoving and staring at you when you had what they wanted in your hands, watching to see if you put it back, I don't like crowded places and maybe I thought it would be like a stroll through a market but no, and people were just clogging the stalls up taking pictures of the sample cards so you couldn't get near any of the stuff. Any way I spent about £50, mostly on the LOTV stand and by the time I decided enough was enough that stand was 4 people deep. Horrendous for me not my kind of day out at all, and when you work out the entrance fee and the petrol etc etc I'm wondering if it's worth it, and the prices weren't much cheaper than from the shops so I think I will just shop from home next time. I'm sure you will have an opinion on this and I would love to hear it.

Then I have come home drenched as it is chucking it down here in Sheffield, I havelogged on to my Gingerloft DT post and my picture has gone missing, what's all that about, so I have had to re load it back on, bizarre really.

Now I am back in my warm and cosy craft room admiring what I have bought.
