Card making session 28th May

My kit has overflowed to three boxes, 2 tins, and a basket, and this does not include the boxes I have containing finished cards for myself or those people may wish to buy or I give away as gifts.

I have a lot of pretty papers that don’t actually go with anything, let alone each other, so I am thinking of having a go at something along the patchwork line, perhaps colour themed and see how they turn out. My Hello cards are running low and my experiments usually fall into this category.

Today, I made five cards, which wasn’t as many as I’d hoped but we had company this afternoon so I left everything on the table to come back to and had some social time with our neighbour.

At the bottom of the box, I found some card given to me by another neighbour who’s friend was having a clear out and she wondered if I could make use of them. I found a rather pretty grey mottled sheet which was big enough to make two cards and used some decoupage flower kits also found at the bottom of the box.

There was a third flower on this sheet which I used to make an anniversary card
The other two were put togethers using wrapping paper again (you’ll definitely recognise it!) and some bit and pieces. Not my best I think, but quite pretty in their way.

I enjoyed myself anyway, but oh boy, does my back ache from leaning over the table!!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I don’t make cards but have a friend who does. When I receive one of her creations I save the front/cover and pass it on as a thank you note or name tag. Claudia

    • How lovely. I recycle some of the images from cards I receive, like the balloons on one of yesterday’s efforts. I kept all my Christmas cards last year to do this and one is a hand made card which gave me an idea for some of mine this year.

    The last ones are very cheerful and colorful! I’m doing a collage with odds and ends as a woven background. It is a fun way to make use of the little bits!
