No Time To Spare


Just popping in to say I've been unwell and am in the process of unpacking (after our furniture and "stuff" arrived yesterday.) What this means is that I have not been able to create anything. :o(

Please bear with me whilst I get things in order and I hope to return soon. (Fortunately for me, our new abode has a designated area for my craft. Woo hoo!

Who would have thought?

Who would have thought that creating with minimal tools, etc and creating in a very manual way could have me blogging less than 24 hours after my last entry? :o)

I was so happy with the outcome of my last attempt that I found myself creating late last night with my eyes nearly popping out from fatigue. hee hee

Here is the card that I ended up with. It is for a very special friend of mine who is going through the fight of her life against leukemia. Hopefully this will brighten her day a little.

Hope you have a great weekend.

I feel like the world's worst blogger...though I'm sure there are other blogs that make my posts look "regular". ;o) Anyway....

We have been busy moving interstate for my DH's work which has meant new schools and finding a house to live in as well as selling our "old" house. Thankfully we have got these items checked off our list though we are still waiting to move into our "new" house.

Living out of a suitcase has been interesting. :o) I think we take for granted many of our possessions that we use on a regular basis and so when you have limited items you have to rethink what you are doing, etc. One of the things that I miss from our belongings is my craft stash. It has been a few months since I've been able to take the time to create and boy do I miss it! I think I've been going into withdrawal!?!! ;o) So when my DH asked me if it would be too much to make a card for his friend's wedding I was willing and ready to "sacrifice" myself and venture down to a local scrap shop. I have to admit I was pretty restrained considering I haven't been around these items for a while but I will admit I plan to go back. hee hee

So here is the card I made with limited supplies. All cardstock and paper is measured using my kids' pencils and ruler and then hand cutting with scissors. It definitely took a lot longer than it normally would to get to assembly stage but I am happy with the result. Now I just want to continue creating. (Do you think the school will mind if I'm late for pick up?)

I like the combination of the cream and black. Adds an elegant element to the card and I felt that it would really work for this couple. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by.
