Double Cosmos

 I can’t post this on my other social media platforms because I might give it to my daughter for her birthday which is why I used purple.

The flower die is Altenew Cosmos and though you can barely see the blue background, I don’t know I’m either heavy handed or not enough at blending.

My vase is made with a bauble punch withe the top and bottom cut off. I wish now I used a 3rd Cosmos and maybe embossed the vase to make it more interesting.

 I post that I haven't forgotton my blog and disappear but slowly getting back to card making although the mojo seems to have left the building. So I've just been playing using some new dies that I've got but didn't get chance to use due to the big Christmas push.

This is from The Greetery that Seven Hills Craft are selling so I managed to get a few dies. I had to cut down my normal size card and its a bit wider that too, so I had to make a card specially to fit it. Its ideal for a quick card because you forgotton to make a card. I've seen it with the number colours and white background which I might have a go at. 

I made this card with the idea of a mans card which is why I used some white dotty paper from MFT. A reasonable match of colour card to finish off with a Simon Says Stamp sentiment .

I made a couple of cards not that impressed with them if I'm honest but I've photograph them and they are now sitting in my drafts waiting to be posted so no excuse for no blog post.

Leftover Patchwork card

 Just popping in to let everyone know I haven't forgotten my blog. I just closed the craftroom a bit earlier than normal because it takes me longer to do things round the house now with my dodgy joints and I wanted the house clean and tidy for Christmas.

Today I am putting my craftroom back in order since it was the dumping ground and for Hubbys beer fridge, don't worry there was a couple of bottles of the sparkling stuff that I love inside too.  I just hope I can find all the safe places I put things in.

So I leave you with one of the few Christmas ones that was left in my drafts that I forgot using scraps of pretty Stampin up paper. A Crafters Expression sentiment cut into some pearl silver card that looks better in real life than it does in a photo. I'm amazed the my very old Martha Stewart Holly Punch is still punching out OK and I used some pink gems for berries supposedly to match the pink ones of the papers.

Crafty plans for 2022 is to make Birthday cards for family, try to continue making Christmas Cards all year round so I don't have a mad panic in November but I say that every year. Also to get out my Scrapbooking Stuff I haven't done hardly any for two years. I need to have another go at making crochet clothes I'm collecting loads of finished blankets and have no idea what to do with them.
