I’ve had a nice couple of weeks off work and now coming back to reality with a bump! It was so nice to have some time off to relax and spend time with family and friends. I went to a few National Trust sites (historical buildings/garden for non-UK readers!), had afternoon tea, celebrated some birthdays, and went Mountain Biking for the first time with my Springer Spaniel, who loved the freedom and the speed! I also managed to get some gardening and crafting done.
As promised I’m bringing you another unicorn today. Once I got started with them I couldn’t stop! I’m addicted to the bright colours and fun theme.
For this one I wanted to make something a little different so decided to create a stitched pocket for the sentiment, and who doesn’t love a bit of bling!
Yellow and orange are not colours I tend to go automatically for when I’m crafting, so I have had to step out of my comfort zone slightly. I’m loving the new ‘in colour’ that’s used on this card, Pineapple Punch, isn’t it beautiful?! The new ink pads are so nice to stamp with, no more inky fingers opening them!
My Christmas challenge
Yes I’m using the dirty word! At New Year I challenged myself to make a Christmas card a week so that I’m not panicking when the festivities roll around. As expected I’m failing miserably at this! So I thought I’d mention it here so I have to be accountable and prove I’ve made this week’s card. So far I’m 17 cards behind (ONLY!) so watch this space for progress updates!
