It is all about cards…

Card making took me over! Since not all girls are well and in kindergarten I don’t have much time for cardmaking, but I start in the early morning and then think about it all day long and when girls get into beds at night I run to my table (it’s good to have it downstairs!) and create what I’ve in mind!

Card Making: Lovely Bear

I’m back to cardmaking (a bit!) and these are first three I made downstairs! I like all of them but love the last one.

I had few minutes (free time!?) upstairs in my craft corner and made this: I used my new Dahle and it was precise – perfect cut! This is a Christmas card for a […]
