Hi hope everyone had a fun Jubilee weekend !
We didn't get the 2 bank holiday days off - but with the miserable weather it wasn't much of a hardship being at work !
I haven't made cards before but I fancied making a couple of cards for my Dad - for both Father's Day & his birthday which is also in June.
So I started with a decoupage card kit of one of Michael Powell's lighthouse scenes which was fun to do !
Then I got lured in by a set of die cuts & papers of Wellington Bear (as much as I love grunge - I do find that certain cute stuff always finds a way to creep up on me too !!!) ... and then saw a girl-y set of gardening, cup-cakes & dresses type stuff which is not really my sort of thing but I liked the gardening scenes and thought I would make some for a friend's fund-raising craft stall.
And it all sort of just escalated from there ! So hence this week my desk is covered in cards !
I haven't really mastered the skill of getting all the layers lined up perfectly straight - if anyone who is into cards can tell me if I'm supposed to measure everything before I stick it down ?
I'm really much more of an "eyeball it" kind of a girl - maybe this isn't compatible with being a card maker ?!!
And I'm not sure I have the patience for measuring everything down to the millimetre !
Anyway - think my Dad won't mind a couple of slightly wobbly bits on his cards & he's the one who really matters !!!
Have a fun crafty week !
