Black feather challenge

Today Rainbow Lady set a new weekly challenge, it was to use feathers. I made this card with a picture from Joanna Sheens Fashion boutique and matching backing paper and some lovely foiled green paper, which i received in a Sheenie Angel Envelope. I added a black feather to the lady's hat and some peel off corners. Quite a quick card to make.

Acetate challenge - mothers day card

I made this card for my mum and also for Rainbow Lady's acetate challenge. It is a prefoiled sheet of acetate, with an oval die cut, a Morehead little girl decoupage and I have put a lilac gemstone in the centre of the flowers. The letters for MUM were cut on my cricut machine using a lilac cricut pen first to outline them before cutting, I then attached them to the card with small silver brads. The inner oval of the die cut is used inside for the greeting. You can find out more about the acetate challenge on this site.

Today I made this mothers day card, the image is a faerie poppets die cut decoupage and the envelope template is one being sold online to raise money for the Spanish Samaritans.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

A card I made this week for friends who are due to move house soon. It is a Michelle Marsden clutter card, with a little doorkey brad.

A brand new blog day

I have decided to keep a crafting blog. I have so much fun taking parts in atc swaps and fat book page swaps, I am hoping to keep a record of these and some of the cards that I make on here. My name is Keren, I live in Cornwall, with my husband and 16 year old son. I was pensioned out of work due to ill health and shortly afterwards took up card making. My house was far too clean and I decided I needed a hobby. The house has been dusty ever since. Bear with me as I learn how to put my blog together and tomorrow I hope to post my first pictures.
