One Layer or Many Layers at As You Like It

This week's challenge at As You Like It is one layer or many layers - and explain why! I love a full on card with masses of layers and crazy embellishments and I miss not having the time to indulge in that kind of crafting anymore. One day I shall return to it and it will fill me with joy!!!

In the meantime I'll make do with the three layers on this card. I'm in a Woodware phase - particularly this Peony Bloom stamp.

This stamp set is just super pretty however you use it and I'm loving it with the vellum wrap.

I hope you can join us over the next two weeks xxx

Slightly late . . .

Apologies for being late with my As You Like It post - This virus has me worn out and I keep falling asleep reading with my little one and then never make it downstairs for an evening!

This week's As You Like It Challenge is 'Birthday or Christmas'. As Christmas card making is generally a frantic mid-December experience I've gone for Birthday!!!!

I've made a quick card with one of the new LOTV stamps. They will be available at the Farnborough show (22nd/23rd Feb) and then online after that!

Colouring with carpal tunnel is becoming a nightmare but I'm booked in for an injection at the end of February. I'm reluctant to have surgery as it generally get better on its own - it just takes a while!

The trouble with diets . . .

So at the moment if I'm not eating cake, I'm thinking about it or colouring it!!! It's not good and the diet is a disaster. It's not even a diet - it's a sensible eating plan but as it turns out, it's not very sensible! I really must try harder. Maybe colouring cake was not a good idea - I can think of little else but food. Sigh.

So this is the latest colouring class at Kit and Clowder. I love the classes but carpal tunnel has returned and coupled with this ridiculous trigger finger colouring is becoming very tricky :-(

This class is really worth taking a look at - the instruction is fabulous.

Shape or fold at As You Like It!

This weeks theme at As You Like It is your favourite shape or fold. I love shaped cards but I really love a crazy fold! Any fold - the crazier the better. They're always great fun to do in a cardmaking class ;-)

I made a quick card because I still have the lurgy and it doesn't seem to be shifting. Lots of people are in the same boat though :-(

Gosh, even the picture is blurred! I hope to be better soon!!

Winnie Winterland

It's week 4 at Make a Christmas Card Every Week and so far so good! I didn't stick to the theme this week - I wasn't in a chimney and rooftop mood!! So I made this one using the Polkadoodles Winnie Winterland CD ROM :-)

I'd forgotten the CD contained digis and had a nice surprise when I found this super cute image to colour. The CD also has lots of bits and bobs and embellies to cut out - the problem is knowing when to stop adding things!!!! I do so love a well embellished card ;-)

I'm off to tackle yet another pile of ironing - I'm beginning to wonder whether my neighbours are leaving their washing to iron. Surely a family of four cannot possibly produce this amount of ironing????? xxx

Oooh I really must stop buying digis!! It's becoming an addiction - yikes. This one from Polkadoodles is my new favourite :-) I think she's called serenity and I just love her little face.

I confess that I am not coping well with being poorly. It's making me grumpy and hungry - the diet is not going well. I thought having a cold was supposed to kill your appetite not turn you into a lunatic fridge raider????? xxx

I'm entering this into:

Butterfly Winnie

I have been knee deep in ironing and cleaning today - yeuch! My new Polkadoodles stamp came yesterday so I made a super fast card with beautiful Butterfly Winnie.

I love a bit of pink ;-) xxx
