Thursday, 9 October 2008


What a nice morning, the sun is breaking through and its relatively warm, another lovely autumn day ahead! I didn't get to do much crafting yesterday, I spent most of the day trying to get some order into my craft room, I have to say it looks better, but still not quite there. I did finally get round to finishing this card for the secret stampers challenge on which my good friend Jill is on the DT. Go take a look at her wonderful work.
I used one of my favourite WOJ stamps, paper from stash and some gems and flowers for stash. The sentiment is from the Craftwork cards circle sentiments. I used my cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder for the swirl.
I also made this quick card for an order from a friend. I have another 13 to do so im making them as simple as I can. The image was from a card making magazine.

Got to do the dreaded grocery shop today and catch up with a bit of housework, so I don't think ill have much time for crafting . Tomorrow im off to the Science Museum , a school trip with my daughter Jasmine. I have to say its not really my cup of tea, but Jasmine is very excited about it. So no crafting from me till the weekend. Enjoy the day make the most of the sunshine!! Big hugs Linda x
