Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
We have had a chilly, miserable start to the weekend so what could be better than grabbing a cup of something warm and sitting with friends browsing through some lovely craftiness??
I thought that I would share all of the photo's of the ATC's that were made for the little Challenge that Cheryl set a few weeks ago.
Mine are pictured above, the idea behind my designs was my crafting/card making style back in the beginning of this blog and the other one shows my crafting now, the difference being that I now stamp more than I do anything else, mostly down to (A) The faux misti tool (remember those)? then stamping tools in general, followed by me purchasing my first Stampin'Up Stamp set, which are the best quality stamps, after having a couple of goes and amazing myself with the results, I was hooked.
I honestly think, looking at that display of ATC's that nobody would ever think that most of you had never made one before, every one of those little works of art represent you and your style, I love them all. I would like to do another one in the new year sometime, collect enough to fill one of those atc display folders, because to me they are all a little bit of all of you.
I know that you don't all enjoy 'ALL' of the challenges, mostly because we all like different things but I have to say that you always have a go, more importantly you all succeed.
It gives me the greatest pleasure to put these blog posts together each week, especially ones like this where I know I have pushed some of you completely out of your comfort zone and you have rewarded me with the most amazing project. That is the ONLY reason I would like to continue challenging you in the new year.
Now onto some other projects......
This is the other card that Karen made for the lady who's friends is a huge Marmite fan, Karen's other card was the Marmite Baubles in last weeks challenge. I know I say it almost every week Karen but you are so amazingly gifted when it comes to imagination and picking designs that suit peoples hobbies, personalities etc. Thank you for inspiring us my lovely xxx
Lorraine has been poorly so has missed a few challenges but she felt well enough to make this fabulous '3 of a kind' card for last weeks challenge. Just look at the expressions on those Robin's faces, you can't help but smile! Lorraine has 'Quilled' the birds, which looks so effective. You must have amazing patience Lorraine. Thank you so much for taking part in our challenge. I do hope that the blood transfusion gives you a little bit of a lift to get you feeling better. Sending you gentle hugs xxx
Michele popped to the Works before she settled down to make some cards for her Sale table today, look at the lovely things she managed to find. Those dies are stunning, particularly those intricate pattern dies that cut patterns into your backgrounds. We all need glitter and Mirror card so Michele added that to her basket too along with some glittery washi tape and a lovely sentiment die. Thank you so much for sharing Michele, I really hope that you have a Sell Out today, you have made some fantastic projects so you should do great, I have everything crossed for you my lovely xxx
OMG! Have bloomin' cute are these adorable little carts?? Cheryl bagged an absolute Bargain on a Facebook selling page, within 17 minutes of the lady putting them up for sale they were Cheryl's !
I can really image Milly-May pushing one of these around with all of her cuddlies in. They look really sturdy and robust as well as being so adorable. They will look amazing on your sale table, overflowing with your sisters crocheted animals. Thank you so much for sharing them with all of us xxx
That's it for another Saturday, I think that we might get our Christmas Tree down this weekend, the girls are really excited to start decorating, Paul is too, which is a stark contrast to this time last year.
Lilian, thank you so much for popping in yesterday, it was so lovely to here from you, I hope that you are soon on the mend and back at your craft desk, it is after all 'THE BEST' form of therapy. sending gentle hugs my lovely xxx
Pat I hope that you are coping ok, you are always in my thoughts my lovely, sending hugs to you both xxxx
Love and best wishes to all of you.
