Inbetween taking my grandsons for breakfast with the Easter Bunny, and meeting one of my daughters for a lunch and shopping date, I did manage to make a few cards. Mainly because we are going on holiday for 2 weeks on Sunday, and we shall miss two grandchildren's birthdays.
One is a Batman fan, so there was only one choice for his card!
The other is a girly girl who loves pink and flowers. Easy enough.
They were born exactly one year apart and share a birthday, which does help with planning the parties - apart from one lives in Yorkshire and one lives in Lancashire!
Ah well, such is life!
I made three birthday cards for stock, and then got adventurous with distress oxides and stencil pastes, and voila!
This prompted a visit to Sweet Poppy website to order some more stencils. I also watched some you tube videos and now need to buy some mica powder to add to translucent paste to give me more colours! This crafting shopping list is never ending! But I am having fun! I got my ticket to Port Sunlight, so my next shopping spree can wait till then.
Ok, the reason why we are here ... desk shot! Fairly tidy as grandsons came for a sleepover at Easter. I made the cards after they had gone, and generally (time permitting) I do tidy up when I've finished crafting. Although I am getting tempted not to, as I now have so many drawers and shelves I can't remember where I put everything away!
There are my clean stencil and wedges that I left to dry. Stencil paste pots, new water bottle and my distress oxides. A couple of mags that I bought this week, and one of the cards I made. The pic looks a bit dark and gloomy - must remember to put the light on next time!
I will be without a desk for the next two weeks, as we cruise from Barbados to Europe, so I will catch up with you all in 3 weeks time!
Apologies I didn't manage to visit everyone last week - work and Easter took up most of my time. I'll try my best this week! Heather x
