I've been at it all week!!!

making cards that is!!!  What else?!

Good evening blogworld,

I've not made so many cards in one week for aggggesss!!!  I can't show most of them as they are for DT posts next week - but I made one final one tonight as I wanted to put something on the blog before the weekend!

So, with apologies for the bad lighting in this picture ( I might well take another in better light), here is me card:

Front shot:

Her close up:
 I used:

Stamp:
My Favourite Things - Doodle Garden : Far Out
coloured with my Copics

Dies:
Nesties - circle and scalloped circle
Memory Box - the heart (which I've chopped up)

Papers:
BoBunny - Ambrosia Collection

Anything else?
A very old heart doily
Chipboard - from my stuff

So, those of you who make lots of cards, how do you do it? Make more than one card a day I mean!  Even when I make a very simple card it takes me all day.  Of course I do have housework, school run, swimming (for me and SWMbO) and Rainbows.  Or is that all just an excuse and am I really just a very slow / bad card maker!!

That's it for this week, we've got a busy weekend planned so no time for blogging or crafting, but I'll see you again next week - lots of times.

Cheerio

This is gorgeous Sarah and beautifully coloured. Love the design.
The only way I can make more than one card a day is to lock myself in my room and not move for at least 12 hrs!!! I really don't know how people make a card a day to blog.
Have a lovely weekend.
Hugs Sharon. x

Gorgeous card Sarah. When I get organised!! I like to colour some images in whilst watching TV in the evening, A, it helps to keep me awake and B, I have a small stash of images ready to go onto cards when the mood takes! Never known how people manage to blog everyday.
Have a great weekend. Sue x

I am always in awe of those busy ladies who seem to produce gorgeous creations a couple of times a day!

We all know how much work it is to turn out even a simple card...they are fbulous to be able to accomplish this (in my book, anyway).

Your card is a sweetie. Love the design and the colours. That one would take me two days as I am very slow!
