Crafty Day..

So, I ditched the housework so I could make my sketchy challenge card for Craft Mad, then I really got into it and couldn't stop!  A very nice change for me as I usually struggle to make one card.

this is for the sketchie
and another one with the same papers

then did these two
the bottom one has purple backing paper and colouring
it doesn't show up much though.

finally I did this one which is a stitched one for the Spring Card Exchange
I'm not sure if the card is too big for the stitching,
so might redo it and see.

I am now off to do a bit of tidying up (just a little)..  :)

Exploding Box Birthday Card.

I managed to finish the birthday card for Jade's 18th.
If I had time, and more card, I would redo the whole thing.
It's only when you start to do it that you realise all the mistakes you do.
Isn't it amazing how glue doesn't stick that well until you try to redo something and it sticks fast!!

Side and top view

Bottom layer.

Middle layer

and the inside layer

Spiders legs....

I got all the kids, a few friends and ourselves to make little messages to her which I
added to be folded out to read.  Looks like spiders legs..

Also added her birth details, fairy name, chinese symbol for her name,star sign, name meaning
(editing out what slang it was used for in the 19th century!!)

Very hard to take photos of once complete hence the blue box holding it open.
