Wow, it's been an incredibly busy couple of months since I was last on here. I've completed my coursework (I'm the only one that's done it!) and can now concentrate on cardmaking again in my free time. I can't tell you how much I've missed it, it shows how important a part of my life it's become.
I did have a fantastic time doing some card making with the residents at work yesterday. I was awake all night thinking what to do and decided to keep it really simple, just basic stamping and punching with the Posy Punch, but they were fascinated by it. I suppose if you've never seen anything like it before (bearing in mind most of the residents are well into their 80's) it is a bit stunning, isn't it? They had great fun turning the handle of my Texture Boutique and couldn't believe how the embossed card came out. They were thrilled with what they made, so I think it'll be a regular fixture in their calendar from now on. It was joyous to see the looks on their faces when they proudly showed each other their creations. It just goes to show that crafting is for anyone of any age, doesn't it?
I've had a little bit of time to do some card making myself, fortunately. This is one of my very recent creations:
Well I'd better go and jump in the shower and get ready for work. Before I go I'd just like to say how wonderful it's been keeping up with all of your amazing blogs while I've been off, it's really kept me going. Keep up the good work, you're an inspiration (you know who you are!)
Back soon, I hope
