This is a fairly new craft to me and it is so enjoyable now that I find parchment craft difficult with shakey hands. it is still parchment and can be as easy or complicated as anyone likes to make it and there are some very clever people out there.

Decoupage and images that have been laying around

These are mostly decoupage and cut images that have been languishing in a draw for a very long time. I am making an effort to tidy up my craft room as my daughter is coming to visit and she has not been here for quite few years, although when sh is in the UK we do meet up for meals at various restaurants. Hope you like them

Cards made with dies

Sorry it has been so long since last post but it has been visit after visit to the hospital and it does become very tiring. I have some new dies and have been playing with them and the flowers are all homemade, I do hope that you like them.

Thank you for looking

First of 2016

These are real mix - many were partly cut out previously and others were from an odd lot of decoupage given to me by a friend who is regretably giving up crafyting due to health reasons. I still have a pile more to sort from stash she has passed on to me.

Now the new year is hear I am starting holding my craft group again, we stopped over the Christmas period an it leaves a void each week.

These are from a precut kit, not sure which make.

Well I obviously did not take pictures of all of them there were more various shapes and styles.

These two were made using a form of paper scrap tequiniques, I enjoyed making the backgrounds and made a few more, now I have to find what to put on their fronts, very usefull for mens cards.

These are the "sporty" ones.

This few are from the "freebies" in 'Making Cards Magazine' last year and now I have found some more pages of other animals also freebies.

Childrens Cards

The last four were made from 'Lucido' peel-offs and metal templates that I have had for many years, I liked making them but after making so many I found it difficult to think of a new design for the front.
Hope you like this variety but sorry for the bad pictures --- now  was that the camera's or my fault, I think that I really know the answer to that!!!
Now perhaps I should concentrate a little on cards for men, there have not been that many made recently.

Thank you for looking.
