Just Believe

Hi there,
March is nearly over and I realised I haven't posted for a couple of weeks. I haven't been doing much creating lately. I do feel much better as my Rheumatologist gave me an injection of steroids to see if it would help the pain and it sure has. This means that I definitely have rheumatoid arthritis along with the fibromyalgia. At least the pain has improved. 
Today I have a card to show you that I made while visiting my friend Jennie one time. It is so lovely. It is a CASED card from Gretchen Barron. I really love this set Just Believe and have used it quite allot.

Anyway I hope to have more to show you in the coming week as I have made a couple of cards today for my class tomorrow and just need to take photos of them. 
have a nice day.

Punched Cross

Hi there,
I haven't been online much in the past couple of weeks as I have had a flair up of my Arthritis. Mainly due to going off one of my medications as it was affecting my liver. 
Anyway I had taken some photos of how I made the Punched Cross for a friend of mine and thought I would share them with you. I saw this cross somewhere on the net and thought I wonder how it was made. I of course went and fiddled around with bits of card stock and found that this was the way I could do it. This was not my original idea but this is just how I made my card.

I'm making 26 of these for a friend so will be really good at them by the time I finish.
Have a good week and I will try to post again when I can.

Box of Cards

Hi again. March is here already. Wow the year feels like it only just started but here we are, its Autumn already. Today I wanted to show you a box of cards I made last year and have finally got around to photographing them. This box is one of Creations by AR. Its called the one drawer organiser.I sent this box to my friend Julie, who also turned 50 last week. I have another box made but not the cards so need to make the cards to match. This set is made using old colours and the Afternoon Tea DSP.












Hopefully Julie likes her cards.
bye for now
