I thought I might share my other hobby here :)

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

I have made candles for about fifteen years now and seven years ago started making handmade soap. I have been very neglectful of this hobby over the last twelve months after falling head over heels in love with creating cards. I have had a lot of pressure to start producing for Christmas and buckled a couple of days ago and started soaping again. Was such fun and now I have more must make fragrances sitting on my bench waiting to be made into decadent soaps full of butters and milks. Thanks for stopping by I would love to hear of what others create besides all your beautiful cards :)

Reverse Confetti October Sketch

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I received a new order of delectable Reverse Confetti goodies yesterday and just could not resist making a card. The Squirrel stamp was just perfect and we have missed my brother n laws birthday so needed a sorry I forgot card. I first water coloured the squirrel but I only have two brown pencils so he looked a little boring!!!! I then tried my copic markers but he just didn't look right with the background I had already created so I took an idea that I have seen the awesome Stacey Schafer do with her images and was a whole lot happier with it. So here is my card, thanks for dropping in I am so delighted that you come visit my blog :) Here is the sketch for this month
Here is my card
