I've not been well for a while now so desperately trying to catch up with loading my cards. Not sure if anyone actually visits my blog anymore but try to add my creations so I can keep a record of what I have made. Anyway, here's a few more…

Decided to try something new today - I bought a Folk It kit a little while ago and have been itching to have a go! The most frustrating bit was waiting for the various layers of paint to dry on the MDF heart and mount board as I decided to let it dry naturally rather than use a hairdryer. Here's the finished result. I was quite impressed for a first attempt!

Here's another pack I completed with two firsts for me - (1) making Christmas cards in August - usually my preparations for Christmas don't start until November at the earliest! and (2) different shaped cards - I'm more the 8" x 8" or 6" x 6" kind of girl!
The first is a fancy edge gatefold with an insert with folds inside to give a compact square card.
Next, a tent card...
…then a rocker card - must admit I like this one because of the simplicity of it.
Finally, a stepper card...
These were all part of a kit from Which Craft which included the adorable robin stamp from Woodware.

Here's my final project from The Hobby House "Here Comes Summer" kit. Must admit this was very fiddly to make as the instructions were a little confusing and the majority of the case is made from card stock with a little chipboard to add reinforcement. However, got there in the end!
It's ideal to use as a gift to put some cards or a small lightweight present in.

I made this card a couple of months ago for a friend who wanted a special 21st birthday card for her Granddaughter. She liked the design I had used before but instead of using an image or sentiment as the focal point, decided to use the pretty Pandora earrings instead.
Here's a close up of the centrepiece with the earrings...
…and finally the decorated box. Kept it very clean and simple as the recipient isn't a "flower and bling" type of girl!

I've had a couple of weeks off work and despite being ill for the majority of the first week, finally managed to attack the pile of craft goodies that have been building up in my craft room! The following cards are from the Wee Hopeful card kit from The Hobby House.
