365 cards day 44: money holder

The challenge on 365 day 44 was to make a 'money holder'. Mine is a different kind to the example given. I've made a similar shirt card before, putting a handkerchief in the pocket, but this time the card has a pocket that houses a banknote:

And now I must get on with my sorting ... until the next crafty urge overtakes me!

365 cards day 43: gift card holder

I know I should be continuing to sort my craft stuff, but everyone needs a bit of a crafting bug break, so these are for the 365 day 43 challenge: gift card holder.

If you click on the picture you can just see the semi-circular cut outs to house the gift card:

And this one is a gate fold one:

and the back shows the semi-circular cut outs:

And here's another version of the first idea:

BF Paddy's CJ

I've done very little crafting in the last week or two, mainly because I'm still sorting and labelling everything and am determined to get it done once and for all (not that it won't need doing again before long!).

Anyway, I needed to do my DLO in Paddy's 'Nature's Beauty' CJ for the group on BF.

I've chosen Spring as my response to Paddy's theme - everything used, apart from the stitched ribbons, is from the DCWV spring range. On the left hand page the background paper is embossed and glossy.

I don't know whether it's because I've had a bit of a break or because I'm not feeling too good, but I found it so hard to get into this.

The first thing I tried was to stamp trees and sprinkle with flower soft - I wouldn't dare show it - let's just say it wasn't a success!

And I apologise to Paddy that I didn't take the card out of the rings to stick my backing papers because I couldn't get the rings open - I know, I am a weakling!! And John isn't here as he's gone up to Guy's foot health again and I wanted to get this done to get into the post.
