Hi Bloggerland! I'm so sorry I've been away for so long. I had back surgery on my prolapsed disc at the end of May and have been recovering ever since. I am much better now, although some sciatica and numbness remains in my foot , but I've been told it could take six months to a year to heal completely, since my sciatic nerve was compressed for nearly a year! So I have been crafting only a little. Here are a few cards I have demonstrated at parties along with the gifts for the hostesses.....
My June host was Stevie and he loves the vintage and steam-punk look! So I used Stampin' Up Attic Boutique DSP and matching stamp set to create a simple but effective Thank You card. I also bought the matchbox die which I thought would be very useful in making gifts. I made this little dressing table in Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.
My July hostesses were Sue and Angela, who are fairly new to our little group of crafters. Angela is deaf and recently retired and is now hooked on stamping! I made them botha box in a different fashion, flat with drawers at each of the four corners, containing those essential bits and pieces. The make & take continued the Everyday Enchantment theme.
August saw the turn of Carol who is only one of several members of her family who are avid crafters and stampers! And I am privileged to be friends with all of them! Another Matchbox set of drawers. this time with an opening lid, revealing matching notelets!
Thanx for looking :)
