Welcome to the Blog of a Stamp Addict with OCD tendencies.
I mainly make cards but I am straying off the page these days! I'm very lucky that I am a Design Team member for three challenges.
I'm happy when I have inky fingers and I love this crafty blog land! If you've popped by please leave a comment to let me know and I'll try to come visit you.
I’ve made too many red love themed
cards over the past couple few weeks lol!I’ve put my Barn Door ink pad away for a while.As much as I enjoyed making love and valentine
themed cards I got a bit bored of the theme.
I love the CWC Candi heart
but he didn’t!It took me a while to
stick foam pads to the back of those Candis and then I had to take the top
layer off and stick them in position – but he didn’t like it.
Then I made, what I thought,
was a gorgeous kraft card and red heart valentine – too brown for him!In fact he didn’t like any of the cards I
made for the challenges at that point and I seriously started to think about going
out and buying a card.I’ve not
purchased a card for more than 10 years – but that was how desperate I was at
one point lol!
Because I was sorting out my
old stash and stuff I finally had an idea!I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off though, very clean, no way could I
hide any mistakes and had to be patient and wait for the ink to completely dry
before putting those chipboard hearts anywhere near that pristine white card
and before I forget I want to share that card.
Now there is a very cute
little crochet heart there.The card
didn’t look right with two heart embellishments.It needed a third heart which is a small one
– and I cannot crochet!Vicki, aka Blush
Crafts, had a giveaway on her blog and I was one of the lucky recipients – four
gorgeous crochet hearts.When they
arrived and DH saw them and said ‘They’re cute. You won’t use them’.I have used one on his valentine card.I will use the rest but on projects I get to
I knew exactly how I wanted the
card to look and unusually, this time, it turned out exactly how I wanted it to
look!Quite CAS but elegant and classy, well
at least I think so!
Enough waffle here
is 2013’s final Valentine card … … …
I’ve made quite a few cards
the last couple of days – found a tonne of images that had been coloured and
ready to use – so you will be seeing some of them over the next week or so!
I’m really hoping I can make
it to card club tomorrow night.When my
back is bad and the RA is flare I have to take more medications and that can
affect my driving.Because my back was
damaged in two previous car accidents (we were rear ended twice) I won’t take
any risks to myself or more importantly to any other person!Enough of that whining lol!
Thank you for taking the time
to visit and comment on my blog – I really do appreciate it!Hopefully I will be able to catch up with
everyone this week – hope you are having a good one!I’ll be back later on this week with some new
Design Team creations!
