Been busy crafting

Today at last I have some crafting to show you. I have been busy but I have had to do all my crafting in bed. I have been in bed for a week most of the time as I have been very breathless and feeling fatigued. I just got to the point were I was just exhausted keep trying to get up our steep stairs to the toilet.  I have three cards to show you. The first was a acetate easel card I was commisioned to make for Valentines day and they wanted it purple. Very hard to photograph. The second card is also a commision for a little girl who likes things girly. It's also the first handbag card I have made. Thanks to my best friend for lending me her template. The last card is for my very Special Darling Maddison who will be 4 on the 28thFeb. She is mad about Harry Potter she as to watch it everytime she comes around. I have used My craft Studio to create the background dragon and scroll. Harry and Hermione were created using Lili of the valley stamp. I stamped a little girls head  from a pergamano stamp and stuck it over the orginal head for Hermione.
I am off back to bed now and a grand tidyup. I will leave the state of the bed to your imagination. All I am going to say on the matter is , I'm not a tidy crafter.
Take care and have fun. Will be back soon hopefully with some more creations. Love and Hugs to you all.


  1. Well done for managing to craft in bed - watch out for glitter in strange places!! Take care

  2. Hi Chris, hope you feel a little better, these things take time so take it easy. Great to see you can still manage to craft, all three cards are fab good for you. Hope to see you soon take care love Sheilagh :)

  3. These are all stunning cards Chris. Don't worry about a messy bed or messy rooms - it doesn't matter. Just concentrate on yourself - and if you need to 'live' upstairs - then so be it. It's you house and you need to conserve your energy.

    Thinking of you my treasure
