Time for this weeks WOYWW - to join in go toJulia's blog HERE. My desk is a bit untidy this week as I've been trying to sort out what to make for an 80th birthday card for a man who keeps sheep - all I could find was this decoupage and now I'm trying to find paper to match up with it. The label with the orange and white cord is from a White Stuff dress - I thought it was too nice to throw away and I might be able to do something crafty with it! Then recently I had noticed a few people had made cards with this new Tilda stamp with the sewing machine (called 'Tailor Tilda') so one arrived in the post today from the Glitterpot and I had to try stamping it straight away. I'm thinking of using paper from this pad with it - I usually select paper and then colour the image to co-ordinate with it. The red book is a page to view diary that I use to jot down sketches from various challenges etc. and the phone is there because I've just been chatting to my Mum - I phone her every night around midnight when she gets into bed!
I'm a part time teacher, married for over 23 years and Mum to Hannah and Nathan. I dabble in most crafts and have been making cards for about 15 years now. I'm a big fan of Stampin Up, Lili of the Valley and Magnolia products. I also make wedding stationery and sell my cards in a local craft shop to help school funds.
