Housebound for the day.......

Waiting for delivery men.  Unfortunately none of it was for me, OH had been spending online, good thing is he now moans less when he is at home and my packages of crafting goodies arrive :-)
So at least I had time for me, and that means time to craft.  Thought it would be nice to use up some of my stash that I had had for a while, so out dame my 'paintbox poppets' from Crafters companion, and rather than make cards I thought I would use my 'sweet treats' board and make a milk carton, and decorate each panel with a different decoupaged topper

Then I thought I would make some notelets and a box to hold them in.These were made with Crafters Companion 'special birthdays' kit. The box was made on my boxer board and the cards are 5 x 5

Getting ready for Easter

Thought I would start early for Easter.  Wasn't sure what to do, then I remembered I had some house mouse decoupage that I had never used because it was traditional decoupage and I had never got round to cutting it out.  So.......for 2 nights I sat in front of the TV and cut them out, and really enjoyed it. So far  I have made 2 into cards, hope you like them

Some recent makes

As part of the talkies group we have been having ATC swaps. For those that don't know these are Artist Trading Cards which are small cards 2.5" x 3.5" and the are mini works of art. You use them to showcase your artwork. Here are 3 I made recently. They are small decoupage pictures which I set on an inked background

New year's resolution

To start blogging at least once a week, if not more. Now Christmas is out of the way, finally getting used to being retired, my crafting life had once again started.
Last year "my thing" was decoupage, and although I still love it, my "new thing" is die cutting. Having finally succumbed to treating myself to an EBosser, my collection of dies has taken over my craft room. Spellbinders, Tonic and Tattered Lace, I can't get enough of them so I would like to share some of the cards I have made recently.
