Anniversary Card - Shabby Chic

Christmas Card...

I was looking around the card crafting sites and have seen some really beautiful cards that have been made... and I see that some of them have weekly challenges.. and thought I would just enter one.  I know that I have no chance of winning.. but I enjoyed making the above card.

The theme was pink and brown.. which are beautiful colours.

This is the blog that I went to for this challenge... just have to figure out how to show them my card now lol....

Bracelet Today

I just love these chunky type bracelets and have seen a lot of them about.. so I thought I would set myself a task today to make one.

After all I do have a lot of old necklaces about that I don't tend to wear so why not use these up, along with beads that I haven't used... in fact I have a lot of beads rattling around.

Not bad for a first attempt.. it is comfortable to wear.. I didn't go for colour as this will go with far more of what I wear.... loved it.. and loved making it.

Where to start?

I moved away from my own country and set up home and a business.. then found that when that came to an end we purchased our own home in another country.  
Since moving there and being a country that I can not purchase cards to send to my family and friends, I decided to start make my own.
We all start off with the basics and build and build till we find our own style.
It has just gone from there......
Here are just a few of the cards that I have made...out of what is probably thousands now!.. I did start taking photos of all the cards I designed.. but then it got to be too many!
