More Playtime

Yay! I have had soo much time to make cards this week - think the weather has been conspiring in my favour (although we did spend an entire afternoon at the cinema on Thursday).

I finally got my card made for the docraft friendship swap for August (may just manage to get it in the post for the end of the month). Its the first time I've used this fancy fold on a card before, but I really like it and may well use it again. The flower image is one of my favourite stamps that gets used quite a lot (not recently though) and surprisingly enough, its a Dawn Bibby stamp. I don't possess many of hers but I have to say that they are very versatile.

The other card is another one for Christmas, I really am enjoying using my old stamps, once you get into it the imagination tends to do all the hard work & before you know it another card is made!

I got brave the other day and put out an ad on the Docrafts website for someone who might like to come and craft with me on a weekend afternoon, well, a lovely lady called Sharon answered the call & we met up today - just to talk and sort out some kind of plan. It's going to be so much more fun having someone else to craft with, and hopefully she will be able to bring along another crafting nut! It's never the same when you show your cards to a non crafter, bless them, they try and seem enthusiastic but it just does not work.

Anyway, hope you like the cards & thanks for looking

I love how you cut out the embossed flowers on the first card and that fun tag on the second card! Have you tried Sheetload of Cards e-zine yet? They are a fab way of getting a small stash of cards built up :)

I love the purple on the flower card. Very elegant. And if you lived near me, we would craft together all the time!
