Seems like forever since my last post. I've really missed it, but life has just been running away from me.
Actually, I've had to take stock of where I am and how I spend my 'free' time. I'd like nothing better than just keep entering challenges, which stimulate the creative part of me - and I must admit to feeling really pleased when I see my blog rating climbing up. However, I've decided that, although I love doing them, and reading all those lovely blogs out there, my crafting priority has got to be where I started from - making cards to sell, to help people who are struggling just to live. But it is all about balance, and I will dip into the competition side now and again, and continue to spend a bit of time in Blogland, getting creative inspiration from all the fantastic crafters out there .
Today, my desk started out like this
By this time I was getting a bit bored (you see why my blog is 'flutterbies' LOL) so I went on to a commissioned card for a friend's 13yr old grandson - only interested in computer games!
I remembered a card I'd seen in Making Cards mag (Feb 2006) so used this as a starter.
I'm quite pleased with the result, especially the denim effect and the grandson label.
Oh well - back to the Christmas card factory!
