This was made for a friend, her Birthday came, her Birthday went, this is the card I should have sent!! Better late than never, and if I wasn't late sending I'm sure CP would delay it anyway, the mail has been behind lately due to one PO receiving center having an outbreak.

I have a few cards I have made that I have to wait until they have been received before I blog them and since I had design team cards to blog this was put on the back burner, I made a simple fun fold for my 3 1/2 year old great grandson. (he sent me one too) With the pandemic I put the cards in a bag and hang them on the door knob, knock and then get 6 feet away,

For this fortnight at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers it's Q is for Queen. Still having a lot of trouble with crafting, I have tried working with colour challenges, sketch challenges of course the design team challenges and it still takes me so long to get motivated to even start. I'm hoping for a nice sunny, dry road day to take a bit of a road trip, The lockdown has eased here in Oxford. restaurants have limited capacity, I went to my fav. Vietnamese restaurant the other day and it was limited to 8 patrons at one time. It's been almost two months since there has been eating in, and going in to most stores.

It's all about Family at Shopping Our Stash, this past year has been really hard for those who have family that are essential workers, it's been a year since I have hugged any of my family, I stopped by my Grandson's place with Valentine cards for my great grandsons and had a 6 foot apart visit. So happy I get updated pictures of them, and I have a nice collection now. On now to my card, which is very stashy.

Hello friends, family and followers, I hope you are all well and staying safe. It's been a struggle for a lot of people, I have lots of time but I am really having trouble creating, I get the ideas and it takes me forever to either get started or to execute my ideas (if I have any). My plan is to try to get some organization into my room so it's easier to find things, 75% of my crafting time is looking for something which today I was looking for a stamp set, I went through all the dvd cases, and found nothing, even looked in a box that has things I brought home from the cottage in the fall, changed my mind on what I was using and where did I find it but right beside the table I was working on.
The challenge for the next two weeks is "Love is in the Air" it doesn't necessarly need to be a Valentine card but we would like to see Hearts on your project. I went with hearts and Valentine, I need to make a couple more too.
So for my card I used paper from a couple of 12 X 12 paper I bought 3 years ago or maybe more. Everything I used is over a year old, haven't shopped in that long. I used Spellbinders heart dies, the sentiment dies are two years old, I love the bold Hello, I am not a CAS stamper and there was too much "white" space for my liking so I had to add it. The fancy fold I found on Dawn's Glitter Pit videos, it looks complicated but I followed her video step by step (takes longer when you do it that way) The fold is an Angle pop up fold. I do like trying new folds.
Thanks for visiting today and have a great week, Stay safe, stay healthy.

Well this is really leaving it until the fading moments of the Rudolph Days Challenge for January, I was adament I wasn't going to miss the first challenge of the year. I started out with a die-cut and an oxide background and it wasn't working well at all, and who would figure there are two different colours of gold? All was not lost though, I have been trying to organize things so I can find things easier (not sure that will every happen) In one of the boxes I sorted I found make and take parts all neatly in a clip possibly from 2018 Christmas open house, unmade and thought wow someone was looking out for me today. So I coloured and put it together and I have one more holiday card. It's a little sketchy who's stamp it is but could be Hero Arts.

You know you see the prompt and you get an idea and want to "run" with it and it takes over a week to get 'er done well that's what happened to me. Finally I made time on Saturday to make it happen. I used an old technique that a friend Donna taught us at one of our Ontario Meet-ups. So here is what I made with my "inchies".
