Monday 18 August 2008

Good afternoon, I'm afraid I didn't get to make a post at all yesterday. I woke up at about 5.30am with a terrible headache and despite popping pills on and off all day, nothing moved it. It seems I not only had a bad bout of sinusitis but also a migraine, well if you're going to do it, you may as well do it properly I suppose!
Anyway consequently no crafting got done yesterday at all and as I spend Monday's at my mum's I'm no further forward than when I posted on Saturday really.
I got a few cards made last week, so I'll show you one of those today.

This is a birthday card for my best friend's hubby. He loves anything to do with the sea and I thought that these images were quite reminiscent of the seaside and beach huts etc. so he may like them (I know I do!)

I hope you are feeling better today. I think I did enough crafting for both of us! Loving the Cuttlebug I embossed 48 cards and cut scraps into embellishment shapes. Today I hope to assemble everything into simple notecards. "Simple" being the challenge for me. Looking forward to seeing some of the fun stuff you will be creating with yours!

Love the beach houses!

It's a perfect card for your friends hubby if he loves the seaside. My young life was spent at the seaside, Lyme Regis. As soon as I saw the card without, reading your comments I got a lump in my throat. It looks just the same as the beach huts at Lyme
He will love it.
