A Whole Day of Crafting!

Today has been great! The sun has been shining all day, but was I outside enjoying it? No. I was inside having a lovely time crafting in my very own Crafty Corner!

I made my lovely little niece's 2nd birthday card (can't believe she is two already!), some thank you cards to send out after my birthday last week, a get well soon card for a friend in hospital, and I made and decorated a matchbox and also filled it with embellishments for a swap that I am joining in with over on the Docrafts Scrapbooking forum. Phew!!!

For Evie's card I have used the Honey & Hugs range from Docrafts, really cute (just like Evie!). For the other cards, I have used one of my favourite things, brown paper! Love it! I wanted to keep these simple and then use my new set of sentiments stamps for whatever I needed, then discovered that the "Thank You" stamp was tiny, so opted for the Just a note to say .... The butterfly die cutter was a birthday present, and although not a traditional "pretty" butterfly, I love it! I reckon if I use stripey paper it could be a bee, or even a dragonfly!

Isn't it funny how once you have done some crafting you get the urge to do more (until life gets in the way that is!) Actually, I NEED to craft as I still have a couple of things on my "to do list"!
