An afternoon of crafting!

Hooray! I snuck into my Crafty Corner this afternoon and had a lovely time! I made six cards! I can only share my set of four as the other two are anniversary cards, one for our lovely friends Natalie and Steve (who came for dinner last weekend!) and the other for my lovely hubby (had to say that in case he pops onto my blog!!!) I will show you those after the happy events!

The other four I made were again using up colours that I'm not particularly fond of (orange) although I do like the papers (Bloom & Grow MME) - four because I had to cut that many flowers out for the layers!!! I can't help myself! I am really pleased with how these turned out, and it felt great to get back to being creative.

Not sure when I'll get back into my Crafty Corner as we have a busy weekend ahead - tomorrow Alex and I are off to see "Eclipse" - OMG can't wait! Then I have been asked to make 60 cupcakes for my friend Louise's husband's surprise 50th birthday party on Sunday. I plan on making them Sunday morning so that they are as fresh as they can be!

Here's how the cross stitching is progressing:

Enjoy your weekend!
