In the last week or so I've been neglecting my blog and haven't done any crafting to show anything anyway. This is partly because things have been a little different with John coming out of hospital - Wednesday taken up with another visit to Guy's, getting home at 6.30, having left in the morning - so far so good with the toe (or strictly speaking I should say 'lack of toe').
During this past week I've also been having a bit more of a turn out of some of my craft stuff, particularly knitting and cross stitch materials etc - sadly now, because of the problems with my back, I just can't sit at knitting or cross stitching, so I've come to the conclusion that it's silly to hang on to stuff that I won't use, so I've spent time putting items on Ebay (particularly as yesterday was a half-price day) - it's amazing how much time it takes to actually do the descriptions and the photos and then put them on - I'm glad I started some of the descriptions the previous day.
Anyway, today I couldn't put off the crafting any longer because we have more family birthdays on the near horizon.
The first card is one for a friend's birthday tomorrow - using one of my favourite stamps:
Then the next ones are for mum to give to three of her great granddaughters:
Then I needed to also make cards from us. The large numbers for these cards were done on the robo and the background papers are the English Paper Company:
The colours of these two are much more vivid irl:
I really don't feel into my crafting atm - the above are feeble efforts really. I'm hoping that more motivation will return soon.
