Hello and thanks for dropping by. Love it when you say hi, too!
I have not had a lot of crafting time this week as the business side of Time To Create cannot wait.
I did however, give myself small "stand and stretch and reach for the craft" breaks.
As I had a desire to tidy the stash up I used bits and pieces from either the scrap paper or the embellishment box for each card . Even bits of packaging were fair inclusions!
These cards all follow on from some exploring I was doing a few weeks ago.
Pieces of cork
Base papers left over from classes
Time To Create Handmade embellishments
Bit and Bobs from the "Littles Shelf"
The Littles Shelf by the way was a purpose built gift from my Dad.
It is one spice bottle deep and sits neatly on the end of the desk.
Each of the cards has background created by stamping cork and then colouring with Pan Pastel.
A tip though - these must be sealed with a fixative.
This one features another product re-purposed and that is nail polish.
Gives a lush sheen on almost any surface.
I love the sentiment on this last one.
Indeed, we have had our own small family miracle.
Our newborn nephew Kobe, who was struck by a life threatening Golden Staph infection has been able to go home this week. He is slowly on the mend and it is such a wonderful blessing.
Enjoy your weekend.
I have given myself permission to have a little time out. (hard boss I am)
A new book and a little glorious Autumn sun is on the agenda.
