Friday 30th December

Trying to revive my blog so now added this to my phone. Trying to be more accountable for it all especially with my puppy giving me some time to craft.

What I've done today and for the last four days is some work on a sock from toe up socks for everybody by Wendy d Johnson. Loving this pattern, first time doing a toe up sock so concentrating more than normal. Just finished the gusset increases so will be doing the heel flap next time I work on this.

Will try and blog again tomorrow with what I've done then.

New Cards

I've spent time making cards today just because I wanted to. I am entering both of them into a challenge. Will try and link to the challenges but it's been a long time since my last blog so hopefully I will remember.

The first card I made was the forever friends card as I fancied making a valentines card as I plan to try and sell them so need to upload a few to ensure that I can get some orders. This one is in the I love promarkers challenge as it is anything goes and I have coloured the stamped image with my promakers. I've just bought the colours for the forever friends and had my first go with that. I have also entered this one for crafty cardmarkers who are doing the challenge first and last. So you have to enter your first card and your latest. My first card was a quick pyramage print and slapped onto some white card with only the embellishments that was on the printout. I did not know about about gems and ribbons and something called matt and layering. This forever friends card is my latest and I have learnt the skills of stamping and using promarkers to add shadow to images. This is a simple card but I like that.



My 2nd card was a recycled card that I made with a christmas card I've had for ages as I hope to make more of these in the future to make christmas far easier. This card has been entered in Crafty hazelnuts christmas challenge as her challenge was anything goes as long as it's a christmas card.
