Show and Tell

Now that all of these projects have been received, I can share them all with you!

You may remember that a little while ago, I got a bit addicted to making tags! The card I made for my Dad for Father's Day followed on from that! He can always remove the tag and use it as a bookmark (especially since his Father's day gift from us was the latest Lee Child book!)

While I'm on the subject of Father's Day, I also wanted to show you the card that Alex made for her Dad because I think it's fab! It was inspired by a project in Papercraft Inspirations a while ago.

We went to visit my Mum and Dad in their new home for the first time this weekend - we had to wait for a break in Alex's exams before we could drag her away from her books for a whole day! We gave them one of the bird houses and one of the bee houses as a housewarming gift (the varnishing worked out well, but doesn't photograph well!) We also took a batch of these delicious lemon cupcakes from my lovely book:

I can also show you the ATC that I made for Valerie for the June swap with the theme "If I were an animal, what would I be?" Valerie and I were both amazed at how quickly it arrived in Germany, posted on the Friday morning, with Valerie on Monday! Must be a record!

I have been crafting this afternoon, but since I probably won't get to craft tomorrow will save those for another post! Tomorrow is Alex's penultimate GCSE exam and I have to fetch her from school, walk the dogs and also will have a pile of the dreaded i word to tackle. Oh well, that's life!

Hope you have managed some crafting today too!
