A crafty evening

Decided to make a card last night, using the LMC stuff. Have to fulfil a swap, the theme is 'wedding' so having donned the thinking cap, decided to make a lantern card. There were so many pretty things in the kits it was hard to choose what to put on the card!

I used two cards, the silver and the pink. I folded the pink card (folding the two sides so that they outside edge went to the middle), then measure and cut a square aperture. I used some of the paper and stuck that to the inside of the silver card, next I used stuck some lace down sides of pink card, and stuck some glittery ribbon down inside edge of silver card. I used the die cut glasses and made two holes above the aperture, then stuck some silver thread on back of die cut, then threaded it thru the holes, using sticky tape to hold it in place. Next took the flower and hearts die cuts, put them on either side of aperture, used some peel offs to add 'Good Luck', made a slit in the silver card back and front and threaded thru the thin pink ribbon, then secured pink card to silver card with DST! Photo isn't brilliant, may try again tomorrow in better light.

Also made time to read the new paperjunkies mag, great stuff, really interesting and full of stuff to do. Told a few friends about it, so they downloaded it and thought it was brilliant - long may it continue!

Managed to catch the 5pm slot of crafting on QVC, still wondering whether to treat myself to the sticky vellums... they looked declicious! I love vellum, it always adds something to a card. Still got some birthday money to spend... so its a toss up between the retro scrapbook album with papers or the vellum! Ooooh decisions!

Feel better today, made a decision re work, going to go back to my old rota, just can't cope with not knowing which day will be my day off, or waiting for boss to get around to doing the rotas. Think she thinks we're like her: she lives to work. It was also nicer at work as boss was off, so we were all much more relaxed.

Mind you got so caught up with making the card last night that I didn't watch CSI! Will catch up with it tonight.
