What a fabulous 'dare' this week once again from The Daring Cardmakers.
The brief was to make two cards using the same materials so I took the opportunity to make up a couple of cards for the local shop. As you can see they are not my normal stamped cards as this is the style the customers prefer.
I will be making a few more of these as the materials I have used are some that I was hoping to get used up.
I have had a lovely relaxing day today. The weather was very wet and windy so I have been snuggled up in my workroom and got lots done. DD made me lunch as she was home today too and both of the blokes were out at work so we had a good old chinwag and put the world to rights......lol!!!
I am feeling a lot happier in myself as I have made the decision not to do any more demonstrating work. I have spent the last four years using my holiday from my regular work to go away and work mostly and have been burning the candle at both ends for way too long. I think this has contributed considerably to some health problems I have been having and already I am feeling better having made the decision and let the appropriate people know.
I will continue to teach classes at Monks Den Crafts and will be designing lots of new projects for the ladies and if Deb is agreeable will be trying out some projects other than cards.
Once I have Valentine, Mother's Day and Easter cards out of the way for the local shop I will be looking forward to getting back to my stamping and having a go at some new techniques.
I just realised that yesterday was my Blogging birthday. I can't believe I have been doing this for twelve months.
Thanks to everyone who visits and leaves encouraging comments. It means so much when you take the time to let me know what you think of my work.......hugs to you all.
Coo I am ready for a cuppa so I think I will go and make myself one and then crack on with a bit more work. I feel so full of energy today and it's fabulous to feel like that for a change.
Bye for now
