Hope you've all had a lovely summer - I've had quite an eventful few months
- some good, some bad but I've had a bit of a break and I'm ready to get going close to again!
We just got back from our summer holiday a week or so ago and our chllenge at
is also returning from summer break this week so it seemed a good place to start
As its the last week of the month our regular theme is
It's actually suprisingly close to Christmas
- a bit scary if you count the number of weeks to December
- not long to get those cards made now!!
today is 25th September
- so not hard to work out how many cards you can make at one a week lol.
I thought I'd kick off with a die cut card based on one I've made before to break myself in gently
Die cuts are good for bulk making, and although this one is a bit more complicated than a quick make as the dies have to be lined up precisely, it's easier to make several on the same formula than to design different cards, its always the design that takes me the time
This is what I did...
One the edge stocking die from Crafters Companion
On the edge sentiment die - Crafters Companion
Red and white card and gingham ribbon
I love a bit of red gingham!
I've had a really busy card making week this week - my Mam was 90 on Friday then we celebrated our 40th Wedding anniversary on Sunday - two very special cards - nothing like a bit of pressure to get the creativity flowwing again!
I hope you'll join in at Fab'n'Funky, we have lots of challenges coming up to fill those long dark nights of crafting : ) - I love this time of year
Have a fun crafty week everyone
