Seeing spots!

Good Evening All!

Phew I`ve had a very busy weekend.
We have been really busy at work and on friday I was asked to do extra hours. That meant that all my plans to have a good clean up on friday morning, leaving saturday mostly free to craft, went out of the window. I spent most of yesterday catching up with housework and laundry. Today our Christmas work rota begins and guess who had to work 10 til 2. Not my idea of a restful sunday believe me. I think I`ve gone off this working for a living lark...

Anyway, two of the girls at work had birthdays last week so I made them each a card.

 They are both very similar with just subtle differences.
The dotty DP and the images are by Pink Petticoat.
I`ve used my Martha Stewart Doily punch along the bottom . I`ve added some plain paper and also punch it.
Parts of the images have been coloured with watercolour pencils and then glittered with Glamour dust.
On Coleens card I`ve added some contrasting chocolate ribbon with a bow and on Tracey`s I`ve just used ribbon.
The images have been cut out with a circle nestie and then centred on a scalloped circle in the plain paper.

That`s all from me for now. I have a day off on wednesday although I have been told it could change. Whenever it is I shall definately be crafting, fingers crossed.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Love them both, I haven't got a favourite. It's a shame that work has to interfere with crafting isn't it? No useful tips today then, lol? xxx

  2. Sorry your crafting got interrupted! Love both these cards I bet your new workmates did too. What a good idea to use those smaller images in circles-I will be CASEing this!

  3. Hi Lynne
    Sorry that I don't have time to visit your blog more often.
    Your last works are great and very beautiful.
    I loved the card with the title Shabby autumn.
    I wish you a wonderful sunny day!

  4. Hi sweetie these are both gorgeous, hugs Pops x

  5. Hi Lynne,
    That's just what I do; Friday housework and Saturday is for cards. I get really miffed when something spoils it. Going to work is a real nuisance!! Love both of these cards and like the way you've personalised them. xx
    PS Where's your tip for today?! xx

  6. These are pretty Lynne - they'd make a great set. No tips on how to clean a whole house in 5 minutes so that you can get on with your crafting then?!


Please leave a comment, it just makes me feel good :)
