Hi everyone. Well January is over and what a long month it has been. "Junk Free January" is finally over and I am so proud that I didn't weaken once. Both Mark and Emily were successful too. For me, it was more about challenging myself and proving that I actually do have some will-power. The funny thing is, that now I can actually have some chocolate today, I don't really fancy it - how ironic!
Today I am sharing the card I made for Alison, for the January card swap. I had a lovely email from her, so I know that it went down well.
The brief was to make a fancy-fold card. This isn't really my forte, so I went back to a tried and tested one for me - a concertina card.
I cut the card from Basic Black cardstock and used my trusty Simply Scored. The papers are the very beautiful Sweet Sorbet DSP from the Sale-a-bration promotion. The flowers are from the new Spring/Summer catalogue and are called Petite Petals. They are so sweet and there is a matching punch too.
To be honest, I'm finding it a bit hard to get my crafting mojo back on track at the moment. January has been rather a stressful month. I'm also doing a course for work which runs for 10 weeks and involves weekly homework (information that wasn't forthcoming when I agreed to do it!). I was supposed to be making cards today, but that hasn't happened either. Oh well, there's always tomorrow!
I hope you are having a good weekend. Thanks for dropping by.
