Everything will be on its head for a few days, no 'Man' Card Monday, or Mixed Craft Saturday for a week or two.
As the New Year is upon us it seems a good time to ask you all if there is anything you would like added to the blog, new features, new ideas?? shall we finish Mixed Craft Saturdays (as we seem to have exhausted most peoples hand made stocks)??
You are all the most important part of this blog so I want to keep you all excited about calling in each day, so just let me know your thoughts, I am sure anything is possible!
Santa bought Paul a pop up photograph studio, that has a tripod for the camera etc so that it will be easier for me to take pics too when Paul isn't here..
I would like to continue with the Step by Step Tutorial idea that I did a couple of last month, so any suggestions for ideas for that would be fantastic.
I would also like to ask your thoughts on doing another Retreat, I would love to meet those of you that were unable to make the last one as well as meeting up with those that did make the last one again, for me it was the most amazing experience, despite being my biggest hurdle to overcome EVER!!!!
The hard thing this time will be picking a venue area that makes it easy for everyone to attend !!
Let me know your thoughts and whether you are interested or not.
Now onto Janet's gorgeous card, do love a 'Steppper' Card, they give something to look at that'd different visually, a little more interesting that a standard card, they make you think out of the box regarding decoration too.
Janet seems to have added some sparkle to her card base, it may well be Cosmic Shimmer 'Diamond Sprinkles' or something similar, it's enough to give a bit of sparkle without being over the top.
I love the effect of using the Creative Expressions 'Santorini' die from their 'Greek Island' collection sideways, making it the perfect size and shape for the main 'body' of the stepper card.
Janet has then used the inner sections of the same die set for the smaller 'steps', using the (CE) 'Happy Birthday' cut, cleverly (and very neatly) in half was also a genius idea, I love the 'Cameo' style centre to the die and the little embellishments on the other 2 sections too, all in all a beautiful card Janet, thank you so much for allowing me to share it with everyone xxx
That's all for today folks, we have Paul's parents staying with us for a couple of days, Paul's brother Darren and his children called in yesterday afternoon for a surprise visit, which was lovely
I am still battling this blooming Labyrinthitis, I seem to have a 'good'ish day and then a bad, trouble is with having visitors I feel that I can't take the medication as it knocks you out and that seems very rude, fingers crossed it will be over very soon.
Please send me your photos as soon as possible for cards, crafts etc, I do like to have them for 'back ups' for times like this when I can't see straight enough to make a card! thank you my lovelies!
Have a fabulous Bank Holiday Monday Ladies,
Love and Hugs
