Men are like wine ...

Fresh baked goodness

It's been a long day - I've spent most of the time today bagging up cards ready for my Tearfund sales - some still needed labels and inserts - I hate doing all that, would far rather spend the time actually making cards. Anyway, they are all done and read now - a job I should have done days ago.

As you will see from these cards, I gave in and ordered the QVC Kanban TSV the other day. I sometimes just need to be able to make a fair number of cards in a short time, although I'd far rather be stamping etc. but needs must.

The base cards for these were actually labelled up as easel cards, but I couldn't see how that would work, so I used them with half of the front turned back on itself.

These are for today's challenge (day 14) on 365 cards: fresh baked goodness - also for Double Dutch 64: good enough to eat.

The first card is also for:

Kaboodle 58: happy birthday
Aud sentiments 23: birthday cards
Fun with shapes and more 78: happy birthday





They are also for:

Totally papercrafts 57
: shaped cards
Papertake weekly: anything goes
Aly's: anything goes

Pocket card with tag

This card is for City crafter 47: in your pocket - as you can see, it incorporates a pocket that contains a tag. Apart from the stardream card blank, the rest of the card was made with scraps for Tuesday throwdown 39. Why is it that my scraps box never seems to become any more empty even though I use the offcuts.

The brightly coloured shimmery papers are Craft House Tutti Frutti (I bought these ages and ages ago and still have bits and pieces).

Sorry photos are poor, but light has gone and flash doesn't go well with the shimmery papers.


This is also for:

Kaboodle 58: happy birthday
To tip Tuesday 25: happy birthday

Fun with shapes and more 78: happy birthday (I had to cut the shape for the pocket)
