Mum's card (done in time!)

Having made the exploding box with the K & Co Hannah papers, I put the card together with pieces that matched - and the main pink bloom and big Dovecraft brad is the same as on the box - and other similar bits added:

Tanda Spring ATC swaps

I'd already stamped the daffodil and the tulip, but hadn't actually got round to signing up for the Tanda ATC swap for February. I usually love doing these swaps, but didn't want to sign up and then let people down. But the lovely Wendy has said it's still not too late, so I've used the daffodil and tulip stamped images to create these Spring ATCs:

Swirly cards

The topic for the card swap for January/February on CBC was 'swirls' - I'm a bad, bad woman, because I meant to get these off to Melissa much earlier and here I am and the deadline was actually yesterday!

So, here they are now, and I apologise that they're not really that 'swirly' but I hope they more or less fit the bill:

And here's a P 'n' L forum birthday card for today:


Nothing to show (yet) today - hopefully something later (need to get that card done for mum for tomorrow and some swaps that I'm late doing - oh dear!).

Anyway, I just had to come on here now to say that it's a whole year since I started this blog!!

There are times when I feel that I achieve little in the crafting sense, but it's encouraging at times to look back and see what I have achieved.

And it's so good to have made so many good friends through craft forums and blogs - and if I haven't visited you as much recently as I used to, then I apologise - it's not because I don't want to, it's just the way that real life goes.

And, although this is a virtual way of communicating, it is still very much real life - getting to know so many fab people who have similar interests.

Here's to the next year!
