Another late night making...

...cycling cards! Got these charms from the new "steam punk" section in hobbycraft. Can we attribute the mainstreaming of steam punk solely to Tim Holtz?

Made a batch of atc's today, part of my craft based new years resolutions. Plural. :)

A better pic.

My friend Wendy asked for a better pic of my last card, so thought I would pop it on here. :) The theme was Elizabeth Taylor and purple.

Final bear...

....for a bit anyway, need to get back to the card making! Panda is wearing my own design of knitted trainers ;)

Trying out some vintage styles

I think I was suffering from card makers block yesterday. My friend Su who was chatting to me whilst I made this card was not impressed by how long it took! I wish I could craft faster and was less ocd about everything having to be perfect :) I never like to issue a card that I am not entirely happy with, and that's the truth. The slow truth ;)

Mary's 83rd.

I worry a bit that decoupage cards are just too dated to make, even for the over eighties. Have tried to make this a bit fresher with the papers and font.
