How is that possible?? The days are definitely getting longer, but they are also whizzing by, seemingly faster than ever. What they’re not doing, is getting any warmer; it is still so cold here in Kent. Last year, I got a gift of a pair of fingerless gloves & this winter, I’ve been wearing them in the house; they make painting & cardmaking a LOT easier. I must take a photo of them to show you; they’re very cute.
On Sunday, I met a friend in Camden, London & we went to The Stables, which is full of shops of all sorts & various restaurants & bars. There is also lots of interesting sculptures, but it was so cold we couldn’t walk around for very long. We had a bite to eat in a tiny Moroccan eatery – the mint tea, hummus & bread were delicious – and a great time catching up. I want to go back to The Stables, spend more time walking around & take photographs, but I’ll wait until the weather improves a little.
I have got lots of new things to show you, but they will have to wait a little longer. There’s lots of birthdays coming up in the next six weeks or so, so I’m going to hold onto the new cards until they have been received. I’ve also been trying a few new techniques, but the photos are still in my camera. I’ll download them later & hopefully show you tomorrow.
These cards are very simple, as you can see. I don’t have a lot of baby stuff in my stash; I bought some toppers when I went to Ally Pally last year & Jen included some papers in the huge collection of 12×12’s she gave me, so I put them together with a few other things to make these two.
The wedding card went to friends who got married in January. They had a black & white theme, which explains the card. I had made their wedding invitations, which incorporated a black heart on white card, so I decided to include a heart on their wedding card too. The heart is only attached to the ribbon, so it swings freely.
Do you remember last week I highlighted the work of Kelly Rae Roberts? Well, this week she told us that her decorative girlies are featured on the cover of the March issue of ‘Somerset Studio’ magazine. Needless to say, she is very excited & her fans are thrilled for her. I predict the magazine will sell very quickly! If you haven’t visited her website yet, please do, I’m sure you’ll be inspired.
Thanks for visiting me & a special thanks to those who have visited for the first time. I appreciate you all. Until next time,
