Well I'm back at work now but at least things aren't as stressful as before Christmas. I'm managing to squeeze in some crafting time most nights. As I don't have a dedicated craft room, some nights I just don't feel like I have the energy to take out all my card making stash and have to put it away again late on, so I've been doing a little knitting while watching telly or colouring stamped images. I have even managed a little crochet, which I haven't attempted since I was a teenager! It was only a wee phone holder but I'm quite chuffed with it! I will post a photo once I've sewn on the button!
Anyways, tonight's card is one I made for a work colleague's 30th Birthday today. She isn't keen on floral patterns and particularly not mulberry or paper flowers so I've gone for glitter and stars. Please excuse the photo, as usual my camera hasn't worked too well with the reflective surfaces!
I've used a silver Dovecraft card blank and silver and amethyst card. The star dies and embossing folder are by X-cut. The star edged square die is from Tonic, all other elements except the gems were from a bought embellishment set.
Just as a wee aside I've had an awful lot of problems tonight trying to add my photo to my post. I've now had to give up on Internet Explorer 11 and opt for Chrome instead. I don't know if any of you have had similar problems? Anyway, I'd like to thank Cynthia, a crafty acquaintance, for her help in getting me back in business.
Bye for now,
