I did it!

I did it! I crafted for five consecutive days! I could quite get used to it too!

I didn't really know what I was going to create today, but then I had a look through the August issue of Papercraft Inspirations that my hubby got me yesterday (bless him) and was inspired! On my list of things to do was make a card for my nephew Felix who will be 4 at the beginning of August. I saw this toothy chap and decided to have a go!

I had a play with my new Smooch Spritz as I didn't have any green glitter card, and I'm delighted with the result! As he is a crocodile and they have lumpy skin it didn't matter that amongst the mist there were one or two splats, but I'll have to practise for when I don't want the splats! The teeth were also a right fiddle, but worth it! Hope you like him Felix!

Then, from the same magazine, and whilst I was on a roll, I made this little card, which I am delighted with! Another male card to add to my repertoire!

Afterwards, whilst rummaging through my stash, I realised that I don't actually own many double sided papers with which to make more pinwheels. I found this piece of paper, but I really only like the pink/gold side, but it works quite well for a pinwheel. So, I made four little cards - notecard kind of cards, the kind that are good to have in your box for thank yous or thinking of yous.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you are up to! I am so excited to be going to see the professional dancers from Strictly Come Dancing tomorrow at the Bournemouth International Centre, an anniversary treat. I love Strictly, so have been looking forward to this for months!
