Carry on Crafting!


It seems like ages since I posted any cards due to being offline for a week during our lovely holiday. Yesterday I returned to work and the shock news that I have been selected for redundancy. I have just been preparing for my meeting with management tomorrow, making notes of questions I have etc. but am tired of mulling it all over so I thought I would post pics of my latest two cards.
The top card was made for the lovely Beverley several weeks ago to celebrate the second anniversary of Chop-O-Holics card club but I can only show it now it has been delivered. Most of the items used are from Joanna Sheen's online shop...the tapestry cardstock, the pink Flora Doodle wild roses, the wild rose stamp, the acrylic piece, Sparkle n Sprinkle embossing powder, Sakura Glaze pens and ribbon....in fact that only leaves the sentiment stamps which are Stampin Up and the gems...no idea where those are from!!!!!
The second card was made on Sunday to say thanks to my cousin and her hubby who made our holiday possible by generously allowing us the use of their lovely pine lodge in Wales. I must post some pics and a little bit about our holiday when I have sorted them out....the photos are still on the memory card in the camera! I used my new doggy stamp from Little Claire Designs which I am very pleased with, it is a clear unmounted stamp and excellent quality. I cut out the doggy images and mounted them onto a square of silver mirri, then matted that onto squares of blue and red cardstock. The ribbon, flowers and brad are all from Poppicrafts. I think everyone will be getting doggy cards from me now whether they like dogs or not because I love this set of little Westies!!!!!

Lovey cards, my favorite is that cute doggie, but then I have that stamp too, so I am probably biased. Love the way you have coloured it in.

Two stunningly beautiful cards Denise and I'm so pleased you decided to share them with us. I'll be thinking of you in your meeting with the management - what a horrible thing to come back from holiday to!

Your cards are stunning. So different and hit the right note. My commiserations re job situation but I have found that often better things result from such a setback.
Best wishes,

Both your cards are gorgeous Denise and it's so lovely to see you back! I do hope you get what you're hoping for from your meeting, how horrible! Hopefully in time to come you will find out that this was a blessing in disguise.
