Well, as I may have mentioned before I have started making all my own cards now and this is a thank you card I made last night:

The photos aren't particularly brilliant as the lighting here in the office leads much to be desired but at least they give you an idea of what is was like. I used some flowery paper I had in (probably either Laura Ashley, Papermania or Dovecraft), a butterfly that I had on my hard drive but I don't know who created it originally (all I did was print it on glossy photo paper and cut it out!), some skeleton leaves and flowers made using a punch. The "Just to say" is a small stamp from a set of gardening stamps my mum gave me!

I was really pleased with the overall effect ;). I'm gradually finding out the type of things I prefer doing and developing a style for cards (and digital kits) but I never seem to have enough time to do anything much really! So it was lovely yesterday to have some time to squeeze a bit of card making in!

Of course, having tidied up my craft desk last week, it now needs tidying up all over again! I find it impossible to make anything without leaving loads of bits of paper, ink smudges and all sorts everywhere. I am still finding glitter on my desk from two weeks ago and I know I cleared all that away!

I'm in the process of making a December desktop (I'm actually early for once!) so hope to be back later today or tomorrow with it. Trouble is, I have to finish a set of accounts first! O, the joys of being self employed!
