Another successful card making day!

Hi folks

Just a quick one from me as it's been a full on few days and I'm in need of my bed!

So today was another successful day in the card making department. My son and I both made two cards each, for an Auntie/Sister-in-law, and for a Grandad/Dad. My son's designs are again fab, and mine are ok. Let's just say that he's put me in the shade so I'm thinking of resigning! Photos will follow in a few days' time after both events have passed - don't want to spoil the surprises for the recipients.

Trying to decide whether to go to GNPE next month. Don't really have a budget for it at the mo but I loved it there last year so might just have to go along for the atmosphere and to say hello to one of my favourite designers - Julie Hickey. It's down to her that I started making cards in the first place, having been presented with not one, but two of her brilliant books on the subject. She's been kind enough to post many of my card designs on the Craftwork Cards blog and their Inspiration pages in the past year, which has given me such a confidence boost, and I've received lovely comments from others who've seen them too. A bit of positive feedback makes all the difference in this competitive world we live in.

Anyway, enough of my ramblings, off to get my head down.

Take care, and I'll be back soon.

Love from me xx
