Thank you to everyone that commented on my last card, they are very much appreciated and I will reciprocate those kind words.
Today I've a card that I've made for a very good friend I work with. It's her birthday on 1st May and I know how much she loves to receive one of my cards.
I've followed the sketch over at this months Penny Black Saturday Challenge. It's a great sketch and one I would definitely think about using again. I've used the sweet Dreamweaver stamp and coloured it with copics. I think this most only be the 2nd or 3rd time I've used it! I can't remember the name of the Martha Stewart jumbo edge punch, but again, this is the first time it's been used! I think the embossing folder is called Falling Daises and it's been embossed on Centura Pearl cardstock.
I apologise for the darkness of the photos. I thought I'd try photographing on the empty shelf of my new unit but I don't think it worked out so well! I don't think I'm ever going to be destined to photograph straight either!
I'm currently working on my granny strip blanket for the lounge. I've only recently learnt to crochet, so this is a big project for me. It's started with a 240 chain and it covers the whole width of the largest sofa in our lounge, which was it's purpose! I'm only 9 rows in at present, so there's a long way to go! I will try and factor in some blogging time too. It's so nice to be doing different crafts away from papercrafting. It helps keep everything fresh and I'm a lot happier in myself too.
Thanks again for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.
