An Uninterrupted Day at My Craft Desk!!!

**
Well that doesn't happen too often .......
a whole day at my craft desk, and yes my
family was home - but I have a new defence
weapon - after many years of constantly
being interrupted by kids for one thing or
another I've just discovered that if I sing
along to Michael Bublé in my craft room
no-one will come near me!!!!!
**
**
I love making these Tri-Fold cards, they are
so much fun. This one is for my brothers
birthday. We all know how much I LOVE
making masculine cards - not, but I was
quite happy with this one.

Ingredients:
Alota Rubber Stamps Cupcake
Basic Grey Black Tie Paper
Cardstock
Copic Markers
Diamanties
Ribbon
Heart
Crystal Effects

Another male card - two in a row, oh no - thankfully
I was saved with this gorgeous little Soccer Izac
from Anki's Sweethearts, designed by my very
talented friend Anki.
How perfect for my soccer playing nephews
8th birthday.
**

**
I made a little pocket on the inside of this one to
slip a bit of money in the card.

Ingredients:
Anki's Sweethearts - Soccer Izac
SU Soccer Balls
Cardstock
Copic Markers
Circle Punch
White Marker Pen
Film Strip Punch

Can you believe it - ANOTHER male
card - that's three in a row - I'm lucky
if I achieve one a month, but three in
one day, well that's just unheard of!!!
**

**
This time it was a New Home card for
my nephew who has just purchaed his
first home. I'm so proud of him, at 24
it's a great achievement.
Nothing girly about this one, lots of
brown and blue (well apart from the key -
but it does go with the whole house theme)
**

Ingredients:
Boards and Beams House Stamp
Cardstock
Tim Holzt Distress Ink
Twine
Decorative Key
Dew Drops

I think after that my next few cards will all be
pretty pink with lots of ribbon and lace!!!!
