Michele's pretty Glam Card !!
Good Morning Ladies,
Michele had a good weekend of crafting and managed to get a few cards made, she sent me some photos of her work and I thought I would show this amazing card that she made for a friend at work that is quite glamorous.
It looks like Michele has used 'House Of Zandra' Decoupage for this card,
Both the super glam hat and the super high fashion dress look absolutely fabulous and have been decoupaged fantastically!!
I love the shaped mat you have used and the flat backed gems finish the card perfectly.
I am sure that your friend will absolutely love this card Michele, thank you son much for sending the photo in for me to share with everyone xxxx
I have had a very busy day today, I decided on Friday to give my craft room a good tidy, so I had pulled out cupboards and piled things all over the floor to sort out, then we got the call about Mum, so I just ended up leaving everything where it was, so when we got back Sunday night I walked into the craft room to make the challenge card and couldn't see my work space let alone get to it!!
So I made the challenge card on the dining table with a few bits that I could lay my hands on easily!!
So yesterday I thought I had better get in there and give it a good sort and reorganise, I am hoping to start videoing some tutorials so I need a good sized space with decent light, so clearing off my desk was a major priority, I have a set of drawers beside my desk that were full of reels of wire for jewellery making, I must have every coloured wire in every gauge several times over, these have all been sorted and put in a storage box, freeing the drawers for more 'everyday' craft items, like tools, adhesives etc, then I must get in control of my many bit boxes, it is ridiculous the amount of card I have that may have one 1 die cut out of them, they are too good to through away but I have loads and loads, I may just cut them down into pieces that I can use to mat and layer as I am more likely to use them.
I also have all of my new lace and trims, appliques and doilies to find homes for too,
But as I am planning to use those with the MDF shapes I have bought recently I need those quite handy too! See I am getting more organised just by writing this down!!
I will photograph my space when it is finished, I am quite enjoying doing it as it is keeping my mind from worrying about Mum too.
She is making good progress, she had the last IV antibiotic dose yesterday and so starts on tablets today, they were also trying to wean her off the oxygen for longer and longer periods of time yesterday and the physio had her up and out not bed!
So all steps in the right direction, My sister Emily said she was so pleased to see mum sat reading her book when she walked in yesterday, a true sign that she is recovering, she has been to dizzy to read up till now. I have asked my sister to go and buy mum a sports type water bottle to have at home, that way she can have a better idea of what she is drinking, dehydration was one of her symptoms when she collapsed on Friday, I think if we can encourage her to drink the two litres that was recommended to her yesterday she will feel much better. They also said it helps prevent the build up of bugs and germs in her body! The other reason I believe she was dehydrated is that she is a little bit lazy and eats mainly ready prepared meals, she will add extra veg, but I never thought I would see the day my mum was buying ready made Mash!
My sister is going to cook for her a bit more to make sure she is getting a better balanced diet.
Thank you for all of your love and support over the past few days, it has been a huge comfort xxxx
Now I hope you have all bagged some crafty bank holiday bargains, ready to photograph for this weeks feature, I love seeing what you have all been shopping for!
Also its a great way of sharing all the best deals to be had out there, I am wanting to buy some Colour Cloud inks so I would really appreciate any information on deals for those.
Have a lovely day my lovely friends,
Love and hugs
