About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Just a quick post

Have been feeling pretty yuk the past few days - glands all up in my neck and feeling soooo tired!! As usual, it comes right on cue at half term!! Anyway, I have a few things to share with you from the past few weeks. This one's a quick post to share the 21st birthday card I made for my stepson. We gave him a driving experience day for his present - hence the two cars on the card. 

The backing papers are from the Kanban Men's CD. I went for the blue and green stripes to match the colours of the cars. The lighter paper is the grey metallic effect paper, cut with the Classic Postage Stamp Edgeability, and one of the inserts from the same set. I stamped the 21 using Papermania's Typography stamps, onto the grey paper. The letters for the name are cut using X-Cut Roma die.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Lexi's Creations - For the man/boy in our lives
Here Come the Boys - Anything Goes
Opus Gluei - It's All Relative

Be back soon!!
