This aperture card was made by inserting glitter inside an A5 cello bag then ironing it between baking parchment to seal in the glitter. A peel off, joggle eye and hand painted seaweed completed the card. Don't forget to click on the picture to have a better view.

It's so nice to be home after my holiday in Scotland seeing family. My SO and Teddy seemed to have survived my absence though it was touch and go at times! Thanks for your visit and I really appreciate your comments. Keep 'em coming!

Thank you card

This card was made using a red plastic string bag that some oranges were packaged in from the supermarket. I simply placed a piece between some baking parchment and ironed it quickly on a medium "non steam" setting. Then I embedded it on a Bondaweb painted background and added a couple of embellishments. A very quick, easy, inexpensive thank you card that doesn't look cheap!

I'm off on holiday to Scotland tomorrow morning for 2 weeks where I hope to trawl around the craft shops in Glasgow and Ayr. Do I need any more crafting materials?! Do I need a migraine?!

Sorry to be leaving my little crafting companion behind but my Significant Other will take good care of him. I know because I have put velcro on each of them!

Happy crafting while I'm gone!
