Good Morning My Lovelies,
I hope you are all well, sending gentle hugs to Our Lynda & Margaret, I miss hearing from you both each day and want you to know that you are both always in my thoughts xxx
Well yesterday turned out to be a bit of a "I wish I hadn't started that ' kind of day! I am struggling for space in my craft room so I decided to have a bit of a declutter and reorganise, I was looking for some metal embellishments at the same time, frustratingly they didn't turn up, my reorganising moved out of the craft room to the cupboard under the stairs, which isn't tall enough to stand up in, we used it to store all of my craft stuff that didn't fit in my room, it goes back about 10ft and is packed to the door, I managed to get rid of a huge pile of cardboard and the packaging from parcels ( that i was saving for goodness knows what reason), i ended up (with Paul's help) pulling most of the stuff out and sorting through it, I put a huge pile of Magazines in recycling and that made room to move some stuff out of my craft room into the cupboard. One of the biggezt hoards i have is card, from back when Sue, Pat & I would visit those Pay- Per -Box places where you cram a box with as much card as you can for about £5, also from buying at shows, I have so much but the only coloured card I use now is either black or Stampin Up card because it matches my inks. The other thing I have but can't throw out is Hunkydory/Kanban "All Occasion" card kits, I can't see myself ever using them to be honest. Anyway I ended up having to give up because I was in agony, I will finish it today 🙄 (hopefully)
Thankfully Maria shared the amazing card that she made for her Son Christian's 30th Birthday. It's a really lovely 'Shutter Card' that Maria has made perfectly, the matting and layering on these cards can be really tricky but Maria has mat & layered hers perfectly. Such a lovely, personalised card, I bet Christian loved it !
Thanks so much for allowing me to share Christian's card Maria, its Amazing XXX
I hope you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs
