I've Been Busy!

Well last Saturday the Craft Club I started called 'Chit-Chat & Craft' had it's first session..omg I can't believe it's a week ago already.  Well 5 lovely ladies came along (and myself) - we had 2 decoupagers, 2 colourists and 2 knitters.  We had a really good chin-wag about what we like to get up to in our crafting lives, swopped skills and technique etc. We did actually do some crafting as well.  It was so lovely to meet up with like-minded people - they're such a lovely bunch. 

Thanks ladies (Ali, Elizabeth, Jan, Helen and Adel)  - I can't wait to do it again !! Our next session is on Saturday 6th July 10am-3pm.

I've been busy making lots of cards recently.  June is such a busy month for birthdays etc.  So he's what I've been up to........

These are my first offerings - here are 3 quite quick cards I made for my sister-in-law and my step-dad - all were printed from CD onto super smooth decoupage paper. I don't tend to make many regular decoupage cards these days as I like to concentrate on colouring my images instead. But I thought the teddy bears were so cute and the scooter man was such a good one to do for my step-dad for Father's Day, because he likes to zoom about on his scooter like a man possessed.

Here's what I used for them all:
Card: Scalloped white 5 x 5 cardstock, coloured cardstock, My Mind's Eye 'The Sweetest Thing'
CDRom - Just Inklined (I added a bit more colour to the images with my Copics)
Dies: Spellbinder Curved Border
Other: Glue, Glitter and computer generated sentiment, super smooth decoupage paper

I must admit the images doesn't even look like they're decoupage...but they are...I promise!

Hope you like them.
