I made a card today!
I know that doesn't really sound all that exciting but it is months since I had an opportunity to sit down and design a new card. I was propelled into action because a friend moved house, and I wanted to deliver a nice card and some nice bubbly (she's a Prosecco fan!) for her to enjoy once she had moved in. It was especially important to me to make a really personal 'new home' card, as this move was not really her choice and so she was feeling very emotional about it. I wanted to make something that would give her a sense of belonging to her new place. This was the end result...
It was so nice to be crafting again, and especially nice to dig out some of my Tim Holtz crafting tools. My mum is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and I just love the SU! stamps and tools, so these days I tend to stick with their products, but I am a massive Tim Holtz fan too!
I have lots of essays to do over the next few weeks, but once they are out of the way my plan is to spend my summer doing lots of card-making and lots of reading. Happy times ahead - and hopefully for my newly moved friend, too!
