Tierney's 18th Birthday Card
The lid of Tierney's card's box
Good Morning Ladies,
A break from Christmas cards today, I can honestly say that the pleasure of opening your beautiful handmade Christmas cards far outweighs the stress of getting every card in that post box. I finished mine yesterday, the biggest stress was finding envelopes to fit my cards, so major note for next year, stick to standard card sizes!
I don't like being restricted by size though I design my cards from the front backwards, the card base being made to fit the card, I also like to make everyone's Christmas cards unique, I hope you all get the same buzz as you open your envelopes as I have bad opening yours.
Now onto Brenda's beautiful 18th Birthday Card for her Granddaughter Tierney.
Brenda that die you have used as the front of your card, it looks like one of the Crafter's Companion 'Create a Card' dies, but I think it could also think it could also be a 'tattered lace' die, I await your confirmation Brenda!! It looks as though you have created a card with a 'fold back' front, making that beautiful topper stand out even more, highlighting every bit of its detail. The box you made us equally as beautiful, especially with the added detail of the butterfly's being a different colour, I am sure that Tierney absolutely loved this gorgeous card Brenda, thank you so much for sharing it with us xxx
I would love to show you all a picture of my dining room table as it was yesterday, you couldn't see it for card making tools and 100's of envelopes of different sizes and styles, most of them the wrong size for any card I made, but I am too embarrassed to be honest, we ate our dinner around the coffee table last night, as I didn't want to just dump everything back into my craft room as usually do, I want to sort it all out and tidy everything ready to start a fresh, I really do believe that a lovely, tidy, uncluttered work space makes it so much easier to come up with fresh ideas.
I have asked Santa for the 'Raskog' trolley from Ikea for Christmas,
I do hope I'm not on the "naughty list'' banana
Anyway, I must dash (if only) tihi ! We are going to Swindon for a major shopping trip today, our eldest daughter Becca is coming along too, she wants to go to the outlet centre too, I have a feeling it will be a very long and expensive trip!
Have a lovely day ladies,
Love and Huggles,
