Birthday cards for the BIG one!

I have been very naughty and opened all my birthday cards even though the day of trauma isn't until Sunday! I didn't want them to spoil in all the travelling and we are on Ryanair and every ounce counts! Here are two photos - one of the wonderful cards and presents from my dear Lotstodo friends and one showing all the cards received so far.

Picture framing - my first attempt!

I started going to picture framing classes about a month ago and this is my first "oeuvre". Not very exciting but it was just to learn the basics. Hoping the next one will be more impressive! (Sorry for the flare on the glass)

Craft Day at Keri's

Here is a photo that I took of our craft day today. Everyone had a fun day and went away with at least a couple of stunning hand made boxes. From left to right they are, Laura, Denise, Keri, Martha, Morag and Catrin. Think we just might have a few more craft converts!

Tag card

I am ashamed to see how long it is since I last posted on my blog. Soooooo sorry, folks! At last I have managed to find time to do the latest challenge on Lotstodo which this week is to make an unusually shaped tag. I hope mine fits the bill. I stippled the background using bubble wrap and Distress inks, repeating the colours I had used on the tag. Then I stamped out the watch faces and embossed them in gold. I typed "tempus fugit" (how true that is as I fly towards becoming an oap in 3 week's time!) and wrapped some gold cord around the tag. It was finished off with some more cord and coloured wool. I did a blue insert to finish off the card which is heading to UK for someone's birthday. Hope they like it!
