A New Blog Begins....

For a few weeks now I have enjoyed blog-hopping around, enjoying all the fab cards/works of art, tips and amusing ramblings of some very talented crafty ladies. Well, I've finally taken the plunge and started my very own blog - mainly to make it easier to track the blogs I like to look at.

I have no idea whether anyone will ever stumble by this blog, but I will treat it as if there are avid followers out there, and also use it as my own personal crafting diary.

Though I won't have brand new projects to upload daily, I have plenty of things I have created previously that I can upload. And if there is anyone out there reading this, some comments and tips (including on how to do things on blogs) would be greatly appreciated - and I will answer any questions about any of my projects.

Moving on, the first cards I will display are two very similar cards I made this month for Mother's Day. I have always wanted to try a never-ending-card but they look so darn complicated.... turns out they really aren't! I found a lovely video tutorial online, adjusted the sizes to fit my needs and away I went.

The gorgeous set of papers are from My Mind's Eye (actually a freebie with a craft mag I bought), the little flowers are from a really big bag of diecut flowers I bought for a £1 (what a bargain that was!) and I found a couple of nice mother-related quotes on the internet.

I was really pleased with the results - and so were my Mum and mother-in-law, which was the important thing! (and everyone that Mum has shown it off to since has been fascinated by it too!)

Thank you to anyone reading this! If anyone would like to see more pics of these cards just let me know.

Take care,
Charli x
